Going to Vegas is rarely a solo journey. From The Hangover-style bachelor parties to college reunions, conventions, and G-rated family holidays off the Strip, Los Vegas has become the haven for group travel. According to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority’s 2017 Visitor Profile study, 5% of guests visit the city in parties of five or more—totaling two million people.
What better way to rekindle your wild child flame than bunking with your best mates? What better way to pinch a few pennies than to room with your family so you can splurge on larger-than-life excursions? And Flamingo Las Vegas has taken notice. Investing in a $156 million renovation, the iconic hotel will debut 14 new Bunk Bed Rooms, along with one of the largest dedicated Bunk Bed Suites in the U.S. in February 2019. In a press release, Eileen Moore, regional president of Flamingo Las Vegas says, “Conveniently located at the center of the Strip, Flamingo Las Vegas has transformed group travel by offering spacious and upscale bunk bed rooms and suites. These new accommodations allow guests to socialize together for the entire duration of their stay in a dynamic yet comfortable lodging environment.”
Make no mistake—the suites are a far cry from your childhood days at a cramped summer camp. Starting at $315/night, the suites occupy over 1,000 square feet of space, which includes a 430-square foot bedroom with two oversized queen beds and overhead bunks, an adjoining 550-square foot parlor complete with oversized comfortable lounge furniture, and a full kitchenette with a refrigerator. Bunk rooms, starting at $115/night, offer 515-square feet—perfect for groups of friends and family. Flamingo’s renovation includes upgraded modern design décor, sleek furnishings, all the tech trappings you need, as well as a waterfall shower.
The hotel’s retro-chic design is a nod to its rich and whimsical history with vivid gold and pops of ebullient flamingo pink.
