    Very good to hear, but I wish it would have included some upgrades to the casino and elevators. Hopefully the article just left that part out.

    Absolutely! Those gold elevators are such pieces of shit. Although look at Linq, those elevators seem to be the same slow ones from IP days.

    I've never stayed at Flamingo, but if the room refresh goes well I may consider it. Honestly I am not super high maintenance and have been ok in Harrah's rooms, PH's basic room, Bally's Indigo rooms etc. We have been very happy with Bally's Jubilee rooms. My biggest reason for avoiding Flamingo has been reports of the rooms being quite rough around the edges and not super clean, and that scared me off. But I'd like to try it, just to say I've stayed there. Same with Paris, especially now with some of their rooms being remodeled as well.

    Have stayed in everything you mentioned, and then some, and Flamingo Go rooms were fine. We even preferred the ones overlooking the pool or mountains rather than the Strip. Always clean. I had more of an issue with housekeeping trying to clean us to death and leaving messages lol. Truly, their biggest problem is those elevators. They almost make me weep with frustration.

    Casino could definitely use some work but please leave the food court alone. It's always been a good stop for us when we just can't wait to eat.

    We had some late night munchies at that food court many a time! Funniest was my husband got a calzone with a meatball on the side, and as he picked up his plate and walked toward a table, that big meatball rolled right off his plate, fell on the floor and rolled away. He was so bummed but I was falling over laughing. I did clean it up, because I'm not an asshole who assumes someone else will take care of it. :cool:

    Thanks for the insight on the rooms!

    Good to hear. Those bathrooms in the FAB rooms could use a remodel for sure. I had a really nice remodeled suite there last August. Forget which kind of suite it was. Enjoyed it but the elevators still stunk.

    The Flamingo these days is a total POS. I can't stand the casino. But ... this is very welcome news. Because I think a healthy, thriving Flamingo is good for Las Vegas. I'd like to see them do these rooms right.

    I guess we'll let you join...
    That definitely was the low point of the FAB we were in. The rest of the room wasn't too bad.

    This is really good news. I am a big fan of their location as well as the food court and proximity to the line promenade. I stayed in a Go room in April and had no issues with their elevators unlike in October.

    They are way past due for base rooms
    Haven't stayed there since they upgraded the mid level rooms though
