One of Las Vegas’ original hotels – and still as popular as ever – the Flamingo Las Vegas brings together classic Vegas glamour with modern amenities.
The Flamingo hotel offers spacious rooms, two swimming pools, large casino floor, wildlife habitat and a variety of restaurants including an outpost of Jimmy Buffet’s Margartaville. The Beach Club Pool has two waterslides and an on-site cafe, while the adults-only GO Pool offers an all-day pool party experience. Visitors can see flamingos, turtles, black swans and more at the wildlife habitat.
The casino floor offers blackjack, roulette, craps, poker, and slot machines while the on-site bars keep the drinks flowing. Entertainment options include the ever-popular Donny and Marie Osmond show, the tribute show Legends in Concert which pays homage to Frank Sintra, Elvis, and more and the adults-only X Burlesque.
Things to Know Before You Go
- Visitors must be 21 or over to enter the casino area.
- Consider booking entertainment tickets in advance as they are often sold out on the day.
- The wildlife habitat is open to non-hotel guests.
How to Get There

It’s a car or taxi ride away from Las Vegas McCarran International Airport with direct flight connections to cities in the US and across the world. Las Vegas is 5 hours’ drive away from Los Angeles.
When to Get There
Las Vegas is a town that never stops, and there’s guaranteed shows, entertainment and casino action all year round. The weather can get very hot during July & August – visitors might find temperatures in spring and fall more pleasant.
Visit the Neon Museum
For a journey back into Las Vegas’ past head to the Neon Museum, where neon signs that once adorned the fronts of the casinos are displayed in all their fading glory. Spot the iconic Sahara hotel sign – the hotel was once a favorite haunt of the Rat Pack – and the gigantic skull that was once displayed at the Treasure Island hotel. The museum is a testament to the ever-changing face of Las Vegas.
