Flamingo Hotel And Casino History

The Flamingo is owned by Caesars Entertainment. Several name changes have occured throughout the Flamingo’s existence. First it was call The Fabulous Flamingo and later the Flamingo Hilton Las Vegas. The Flamingo today has 3,460 hotel rooms. The design of The Flamingo is similar to the style of Miami and South Beach. There is a wildlife habitat on the property consisting of flamingos, ducks, pelicans, exotic birds and fish.

The Flamingo was the third casino to be built on The Strip and is the oldest casino still in operation on The Strip today since 2007 after the Frontier closed. The property opened was owned by Charles “Pops” Squires. Margaret Folsom bought the property from Squires before selling it to Billy Wilkerson who was the owner of the Hollywood Reporter and some popular nightclubs. Wilkerson was trying to upscale the resort but halted due to financial problems. This is where Bugsy Siegel came in to help with the financing and obtained a large portion of the property.

After needed financing and completed construction by Siegel, he opened the property opened on December 26, 1946, at a total cost of $6 million. There is a lengthy storyline involving Siegel’s mob ties and death. After his passing away, casino management changed the name of the property to The Fabulous Flamingo on March 1, 1947. The hotel’s management in 1953 spent $1 million in renovations and remodeling changing the front and look of the hotel. In 1960 the property was sold again for $10.5 million. The Hilton Corporation bought the resort in 1972 changing the name to the Flamingo Hilton. In 1998 the property later was part of Park Place Entertainment and later renamed to Caesars Entertainment. Harrah’s Entertainment purchased Caesars Entertainment in 2005 and the property became part of Harrah’s Entertainment. The company changed its name to Caesars Entertainment Corporation in 2010.

There have been many past headliners, but the best were Donny and Marie Osmond which ran from 2008 through November 2019.
