Hi all, we're going to Vegas in March and have reservations for a 2-bdrm at the Flamingo. Any recommendations on what floor and/or room to request?:shrug: :shrug:

Thanks,

The views are all similar, as the rooms all face the Flamingo pools. A higher floor would be preferable since a) better chance of getting a refurbished unit and b) better view of the strip (you will be able to see over more of the buildings.

Refurbishment status

From the Oct 2008 Maintenance Fee Letter for Flamingo..
As detailed in previous mailings, the refurbishment will include installation of new carpet, furniture and appliances in all units, as well as replacement of cabinets, countertops, sinks and fixtures in kitchens and bathrooms. This project began in August with the main tower, a phase of work scheduled for completion in mid-December. Refurbishment of the units in the two side buildings will begin in January.

Thanks for the advice, sounds like I just need to ask for a high floor and a refurbished room.

Take care,
Bustah

Center Tower has the renovated rooms

I went to HGVC Flamingo on a girls' trip in January. When I talked to a rep who was calling to confirm my 5 reservations, I asked about the rooms. She said to ask for the center tower and ask for a renovated room. That being said, they are renovated and no longer flamingo motif. However, the upgrade was kind of disappointing compared to the strip property. Nice but not as wow as the strip property.

Enjoy your trip!
