Weekend Adventures Update Features The Flamingo Resort

Article By: Carole Terwilliger Meyers

Originally designed to mirror the namesake resort in Las Vegas, it attracted Hollywood stars–most famously Jayne Mansfield, whose photographs by the pool and in front of the roof-top name tower hang in the lobby. The resort was declared an historic city landmark in 1996. Five lodging buildings surround a central courtyard like a wagon wheel. The lobby is a sixth spoke and holds meeting rooms, a restaurant, and the Flamingo Room lounge featuring live music and dancing on weekends.

Santa Rosa – From The Pool To The Table

Flamingo Resort Pool

Like a beacon of good will that is anchored in the history of a bygone era, the Flamingo Hotel Spa and Conference Center, located in Santa Rosa, California, has been welcoming guests since 1957. Two years after it opened, word sifted south to Hollywood and “those in the know” traveled north to stay in the famed hotel. Today this historic landmark has retained old-world charm with 21 Century modernity.

Santa Rosa’s Historic Landmark Named “Best Hotel”

A delectable poolside brunch? Salsa lessons? It may sound more like Palm Springs than Santa Rosa, unless you are fortunate to have discovered Flamingo Conference Resort and Spa, a wonderful family-owned property that was voted “Santa Rosa’s Favorite Resort and Hotel” by Press Democrat readers. The hotel offers 5 star amenities at affordable prices from fantastic Montecito Heights Health Club packages to Tattoo & Blues, America’s longest running tattoo festival. The brunch has been dubbed one of the Best Brunch Buffets by Bohemian’s Best Of editions for more than a few years. Located less than one hour from Napa Valley, Russian River and Golden Gate Bridge, this ideal central Sonoma County location provides RT #101 and #12 crossroads convenience for exploring Wine Country and the Coast Wine tasting or getaway retreat on weekdays for better value.

Sonoma County is big. Really big. You’ve got the Valleys… Sonoma Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Russian River Valley, all with about a zillion wineries… you’ve got Redwood Forests, miles of coastline, cute towns (with shopping) and world-class restaurants. And in an entirely different category, you’ve got Safaris West.

Although it is physically impossible to see even a fraction of it in 36 hours, with the help of the wonderful folks with Sonoma County Tourism, we did our best.

Flamingo 60th & KSRO’s 80th Anniversary Celebrations

Chris Smith – The Press Democrat September 30, 2017

Old Santa Rosa savored the memories and New Santa Rosa the then-and-now contrasts when the 60-year-old Flamingo Hotel and 80-year-old radio station KSRO co-celebrated their anniversaries alongside the hotel pool.

The Flamingo and KSRO partied together days ago because they like each other, both are high-profile local institutions and for a time way back KSRO’s studios were at the hotel.
