Convenient, good with one major amazing feature

The Flamingo has been in Las Vegas since the beginning, and the motto is "We didn't build on the Strip, the Strip build around us!" It's an older, but remodeled hotel, and although the room was large and clean, the bathroom was very small and in need of updating. We don't need a large bathroom, so it was perfectly suitable, but if you must have a large and luxurious bathroom, probably not the place for you. The staff were friendly and helpful. Lots and lots of time share people will accost you (if you are a couple). Some of the shops have extremely aggressive sales people, but once you know who they are it's easy to say no. We chose the Flamingo for price and the monorail access--but when we walked the grounds we realized that we had to come visit again. The pool and garden area is spectacular! The pools are closed until March, which is a shame, but this outside area will be amazing when we return in the spring. The buffet is so-so, but the location of the hotel is wonderful and there are lots of things to do and see.
