Flamingo Las Vegas: The Flamingo Hotel

flamingo-las-vegas

 

The Flamingo Las Vegas was built in 1946 as the first luxury hotel built in Las Vegas. It was in this hotel where they filmed the original Ocean’s Eleven in 1960.

The hotel has a “wildlife habitat” including flamingos and other species of birds and fish. You can visit for free during the day.

In size the Flamingo Las Vegas is not far behind, with more than 7,000 square feet of casino, 3,626 rooms, three swimming pools and a Jacuzzi.

The Flamingo Las Vegas is a hotel casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada and is owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment. The property offers a 77,000 sq ft (7,200 m2) casino along with 3,626 hotel rooms. The 15-acre (6.1 ha) site’s architectural theme is reminiscent of the Art Deco and Streamline Moderne style of Miami and South Beach, with a garden courtyard housing a wildlife habitat featuring flamingos. It was the third resort to open on the Strip, and the oldest resort on the Strip still in operation today.  The Flamingo Las Vegas has a Las Vegas Monorail station at the rear of the property.

The Flamingo Las Vegas Today

Today the best of this hotel is its location, we can say that the Flamingo Las Vegas is the center of the life of the Strip. Most of the hotel rooms, except the rebuilt new rooms, look quite decadent and we do not recommend staying there.
