Quick report - 3 of us - hubby (DH), daughter (DD) and me (K) - Left Pittsburgh last Wednesday (12/4) for 5 days in Vegas. SW flight uneventful - but do like the free direct TV and flight tracker on my iPad.
Arrived at our home in Vegas the Flamingo about 7 pm. Have 2 comped rooms - 1 smoking (#26042) for DH & K and 1 non-smoking (22048) for DD. Everything was great - both had frigs and coffee pots. 26th floor has new hallway carpeting and also ceramic tile in the area near the elevators. Got a quick bite at Margarittaville - burgers and club sandwiches and off to the slots.
Meals - other than the 1st night - DH likes buffets - so we buy the BoB every other day and get $5 off coupons (thanks foursquare) to use for breakfasts on the days in between. Dinner at Planet HO twice, Paris once, and Caesars once. I really like Caesars buffet - but the $20-25 up charge is a bit much. Otherwise I like the food at Planet HO - but not the staff. DH and K are both Diamond with TR and the difference in service at the Flamingo to any other Caesars location is sizably different. All of the Flamingo staff treat us great - not so great at other properties.
Shows - DD and K scored enough points on myVegas to get 2 free tickets to "KA" at MGM. So bought a monorail pass to go pick the tickets up - then used the monorail to go back and forth for the show. Very enjoyable show - sort of dark story line - but enjoyable none the less. On our arrival DD mentioned she wouldn't mind seeing Shania Twain - and K was like - eh - OK. So walked over on Sunday afternoon - charged 2 tickets for Sunday night show (got them comped off upon checking out on Monday) - and WOW - Shania Twain show wasn't what I thought it'd be - she's a great entertainer - not really country - not really pop - but a great show.
QUA Spa - spent a couple hours at the QUA spa on Thursday with DD - bought Spa gift cards at SAMs before we left home - and we enjoyed the spa for a couple of hours - then each had a treatment. DD had never been to a spa before - and I think she really enjoyed herself.
Gambling - didn't do to bad - hit the $1000 spin on dollar WoF machine at Flamingo. Played a bit at Caesars, Planet HO and Paris - but the majority was at Flamingo. DH also hit $1000 on his good old $1 Blazing 7s (at least I always know where to find him). DD came home with more $$$ then she took - wish DD and K could say the same.
All in all - another great trip to Vegas and another great stay at the Flamingo. We go to Vegas about 3-4 times a year and generally stay at the Flamingo - always feels like home to me.
