Broken Promises

We just got back from Vegas early this morning, gosh I hate getting on that plane to come home!!

I had posted in this forum that I would post pictures of the newly renovated luxury fab room at the Flamingo once I returned but I can't do that now, sorry!!

We had called the hotel ahead of time telling them that we would be arriving late but I wanted to make sure that we would still be able to have the room that we had booked, didn't want them to think that we weren't coming. We arrived at probably close to 11:30 p.m. Of course we were the only ones checking in at that time. Get up to the lady and she's taking awhile looking on the screen. I'm thinking we better not be getting a regular deluxe room....lol She tells us that she has to talk to her manager. I said to my husband, hope they upgrade us to a comped go room. She comes back and BAM , a go room for us!! Sorry for all of you that wanted the pictures of the fab luxury room but I'll take the go room anyday!! There are advantages to getting there late!! lol

Total lack of forum committment. You should be ashamed and perhaps put in time out on the naughty step by Admin.

For our trip in April we are staying two nights comped at Paris and 3 nights at Wynn.....I came very close to booking two nights in a Fab Luxury room instead of Wynn but decided against it because if I ended up in anything but the Fab Luxury room I would have been pissed. I'm not a Flamingo fan or a go-room fan but almost gave it a whirl because of the new rooms. I'm happy you were pleased with the change and weren't disappointed. Perhaps someone else will post some photos here after a stay of the Fab Luxury rooms.

My best room upgrade ever and one of the nicest rooms /suites I have stayed in was due to a late arrival. My girlfried (now wife) and I were on our first trip together and were staying at the Golden Nugget. We arrived around 1:30 am and had booked a standard room (this was before the South Tower was open). What we received was a two-room suite. Basically was two regular rooms with the connecting door removed. One set up with a King Bed and "Her" bathroom and the other as a living room and "His" bathroom. Pretty cool upgrade.

Congrats on your broken promise!

WHAT? You didn't stalk the maids by a FAB room & offer them $5 to let you go in and take pictures? SHAME ON YOU! :) :)
