About the Flamingo
A Sonoma Hotel, Conference Venue and Spa with a glamorous story
As romantic a destination resort today as when it was built, the Flamingo Conference Resort and Spa has always been the area’s favorite resort with a strong connection to the glamour of Hollywood and Las Vegas. The resort offers a wide variety of modern amenities with the glamorous ambiance of a 1950s summer resort.
The Los Angeles modernist architect George Vernon Russell built the resort to mirror the original Vegas Flamingo design. The original Flamingos clean horizontal lines curving glass curtain walls and planes of rugged, staggered stone and the tower with the name “Flamingo” written vertically all were repeated in the Santa Rosa version.

Going green at the Flamingo
The Flamingo Conference Resort and Spa’s owner and management have embraced ecologically-sound green practices throughout the resort. We believe that it is our responsibility as members of the business community, the tourism community and as individuals, to choose the environmentally wise choice whenever possible, even if it costs a little more or takes a little more time. We know that this business decision will save the resort money long term and help us do our part to save the planet. With that in mind, the Flamingo management has asked each employee to think of ways they can be more environmentally productive.
As a resort, we have made a financial commitment to this philosophy through new Low E windows that have helped to increase our energy efficiency and to lower the Flamingo’s carbon footprint. We use energy efficient lighting and appliances throughout the resort.
In the laundry we have an ozone device that allows a reduction in cleaning supplies and water usage. It shortens drying times to also save on natural gas usage. We have reduced our natural gas, electrical and water usage throughout the resort.
We have reduced our energy consumption and dependency on non-renewable resources. We use insulation and weather stripping. We replace old wasteful fixtures including light bulbs, toilets, shower heads, faucets and appliances (like refrigerator and freezers, ice machines, washing machines and dryers, air conditioners, furnaces/heaters, and computers) as they break or wear out, with new efficient fixtures and appliances.
The Flamingo uses durable dishes, cups, glasses, mugs, tableware, and serving pieces. When customers request containers to take food out of the dining areas, we use only sugar cane and corn biodegradable products. We recycle everything that can be recycled, religiously.
We are working on growing the number of local suppliers for the food that is served at the Flamingo. Buying local reduces energy cost in transporting and provides fresher better products to our guests. We are committed to making changes throughout the resort that are ecologically sound.
