SEMPA vegas housing cheaper option

Recommended Posts

Man, I've been bad about getting on here lately; I booked a couple of weeks ago and meant to put up a message like this.


I found a deal via otels.com, which is a clearinghouse that apparently is run out of Turkey (so that explains the currency exchange charge on my credit card bill), and got 4 nights for a price that's stupidly cheap compared to the Mirage's SEMPA rate. I think Kayak.com, Priceline.com, or the hotel's own site would give you something decent.


The Flamingo is not so swanky anymore, and it has a shabby charm. The rooms are renovated though, and for as much time as I intend to spend there, I'm sure it'll be fine. It's also historic, and one of the few first-generation casinos still standing.


Being across the street from the conference is nice, of course.

Bumping this thread, just in the interests of visibility. Make some calls, see if you can save some cash.


I hope the Flamingo doesn't smell funny or anything...

for 500 bucks less I can put up with a lot. when I go to the aapa conferences I stay at the nearest motel 6 and walk 2-3 blocks to save a few thousand dollars.

Yes, that's true. The Flamingo was one of the first generation of casinos. Many of its peers have long since been demolished to make way for shinier, newer things. I played the five-dollar craps tables at the Sahara several years back, and it was the most fun I've had in my three or so trips to Vegas. It was like walking through a time warp.


i believe the flamingo hotel is the subject of the movie "bugsy" with warren beatty.
