Mine eyes deceive me

This canNOT be the tacky old Flamingo Las Vegas with the horrid bedspreads and smelly carpets. These pix from the R-J today are impressive partly because they were taken by a staff photog, K.M. Cannon and not their PR staff, but also because these are really amazingly beautiful rooms. The article by Arnold M. Knightly says they're refurbing or remodeling (there's a significant difference but the article says both) 500 of their 3,530 rooms this year, 636 next year. Kudos to Don Marrandino, who appears on track to accomplish the impossible, making this place hip again.
