LAS VEGAS — Caesars Entertainment Corporation has announced a major renovation of Flamingo Las Vegas’s guestrooms, which when completed, will leave the iconic hotel looking brand new.
The US$90 million refresh will be done to 1,270 guestrooms and will begin in late August, with the first guest arrivals expected in November. The final completion of all rooms is expected in the second quarter of 2018.
“Flamingo Las Vegas is an iconic resort filled with 70 years of rich history and unforgettable experiences,” said Bob Morse, President of Hospitality for Caesars Entertainment. “The renovated rooms pay homage to the property’s past, while also giving it a fresh and modern new look.”
Designed by Forrest Perkins, rooms upon completion will “sparkle like glitter and shine like champagne”, with hues of gold and bright pops of flamingo pink.
Located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, Flamingo Las Vegas celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2016. It boasts more than 3,500 guestrooms and suites and is home to a sprawling 15-acre pool and wildlife habitat complete with waterfalls, mature island vegetation and tropical wildlife, three pools and several outdoor wedding gardens.
In 2016, Caesars Entertainment upgraded more than 4,800 rooms at four of its Las Vegas resorts, including Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Paris Las Vegas and Harrah’s Las Vegas. By the end of this year, more than 50% of Las Vegas rooms at Caesars properties will have been upgraded since 2014.
