So, I'm fortunate enough to get to extend a business trip (Surfaces convention late Jan) and staying at Flamingo Jan 30-Feb 2. Does the $20 trick work at this hotel? How is the poker room? I suspect I'll be spending some time at Planet Hollywood, Venetian and Aria as well. Hows the action late Jan? And the weather?

Can't speak to the $20 trick other than to say I'm not sure if it's really worth it for a solo trip -- I stayed in one of the updated Fad Deluxe rooms and it was fine but nothing special. Not sure what more the $20 trick would get you. I actually liked the habitat view in the tower by the hotel lobby, but I think the front side is strip view which would be good too.
The poker room is ok, not great. It does have the same high rake ($5+1) as other CET properties, but the games are normally ok.
Weather will probably be mid-50s in the day, mid-30s at night. Wind can be a bit cold and does "go through you" as my grandmother would say, but not terrible if you are used to colder weather.
