TI is the much better over all property. The only thing Flamingo has over top of TI is their.pool area. Although the pool is much nicer, It is also way more over crowed and rowdy than TI.

i have stayed at both more than once, TI gets my vote. it's a bit smaller and does not take an age to get outside. Agree pool area at Flamingo is bigger. Depends on your preferences. Back to TI next month for me.

Even though neither is considered a luxury hotel, TI is much superior. I have TI ranked as a solid 3 star choice and Flamingo as a 2 star. Everyone will tell you to upgrade at Flamingo to a GO room, but if you spend the money to upgrade you are better off just staying at another hotel.

TI also has the best southerly view of the Strip, and the nce added bonus of a real fridge in each room.

Be aware that most return visitors who respond, choose to stay at Flamingo because it is free or drastically reduced. So their decision to stay there is very different than yours. It's a lot easier to like something if it is free.

Are you open to other hotel choices?

For the same price, TI is the better choice, unless you want Flamingo's nice big pool. Gambling is better at TI and I like the location better. If you can get a south facing room, TI has great views, some of the best on the strip. When we stayed there we weren't very high (12th floor, IIRC) and the windows were filthy, but still nice views.

Not a fan of the Flamingo....the casino smells really bad and to be honest, its really run down. I put Flamingo in the same catagory as Excal, Quad, Bally's etc. TI is nice, I think it is a tier higher i.e. Planet Hollywood, NYNY, MGM etc. Flamingo pool is nice but very crowded. It would not even be an option for me. People say " you only sleep in your room so it doesn't mater" I disagree, I think for a few extra bucks...it contributes to a much nicer Vegas experience. Only drawbacks to TI are the pool and its a bit more north vs Flamingo so more walking. Good Luck

hahaha. :-)

What's your budget? What amenities would you like? Your dates don't include an entire weekend, and with the right promo you may have nicer options to choose from.
