of Signature Flamingo Pink 
LAS VEGAS - Aug. 29, 2006 -- The famous Flamingo Las Vegas has commenced an extensive room renovation that offers elevated accommodations with modern decor and technologically advanced amenities.

The Flamingo room renovation announcement follows just two weeks after the debut of international recording star Toni Braxton at the center-Strip resort. Braxton's long-term engagement has brought a lavish production to the Flamingo, featuring a cast of talented dancers, singers and musicians. 

"With Toni Braxton, edgy new guest rooms, and the best location on the Las Vegas Strip, the Flamingo is becoming more exciting and more fun," said Don Marrandino, president of the legendary Las Vegas resort. "The property has been a landmark for the past 60 years and now we are moving forward to take the resort into the future. An aggressive room renovation project creates a contemporary and entertaining guest experience." 

The fresh Flamingo experience begins at hotel check-in, where guests will receive a CD of rock songs specially compiled for the hotel, along with newly designed room keys that complement the resort's new room decor. The contemporary atmosphere is carried all the way to the room via redesigned elevator banks and vibrantly striped hallways. 

Floors 17-26 have a total of 54 renovated rooms per floor - 48 standard rooms, 4 mini suites and 2 Royal Suites. Floors 27 and 28 hold a total of 48 rooms per floor- 40 standard rooms, 4 mini suites, 2 Royal Suites and 2 Classic suites. 

Guest comfort is at the forefront in the innovative bedroom and bathroom designs, with splashes of signature Flamingo pink accenting the space. Bedrooms feature oversized white vinyl headboards, posh carpet, and sleek, modern furniture. Ultra-soft pillow-top mattresses are tripled-sheeted with plush linens and are flanked with LED chrome reading lights. White drapery adorns the bedroom walls, adding an air of sophistication. Deluxe bathrooms include stylish frosted glass walls and doors, multiple jetted shower fixtures and luxurious bath amenities. 

The new accommodations indulge tech-savvy guests with a host of cutting edge digital accessories. Living space becomes an area of leisure with a top-of-the-line sound system with MP3 player docking station, CD/ DVD player, electronically controlled window treatments and wireless internet connection. Rooms also are equipped with 42" flat panel, high definition television sets and built-in screens in the bathroom mirrors. 

The innovative concept was developed by Cagley & Tanner, an interior design firm headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, specializing in both high-end residential design and upscale resort and casino design.
