The LINQ has had a number of name changes over the years (it’s been the Flamingo Capri, Imperial, and Quad) but it was rebranded in 2014 as the LINQ after the then-new LINQ Promenade, the adjacent open-air retail and entertainment district that’s also home to the High Roller, a 550-foot observation wheel—and the name stuck. The rebrand included a major renovation of the more than 2,200 guest rooms, which now have a clean, modern aesthetic, with bedside lamps sporting charging ports but no alarm clocks. It’s predominantly a young crowd here—who flock to O’Shea’s, one of the in-house casinos, for beer pong tournaments and DJs—and the atmosphere is lively and carefree: rock blasts at the pool, the spa lets you play your own music in the treatment rooms, and guests can get a tattoo at the in-house tattoo parlor.
In the Area
The LINQ has a central location in the middle of The Strip, but it’s possible to spend quite a bit of time on the Promenade, the adjacent “mini strip” of restaurants, bars, and activities like bowling and a virtual reality experience. From here, it’s an easy walk to the Luxor, New York-New York, the Bellagio or any of the other casinos. Shops selling everything from luxury handbags to “What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas” t-shirts are within a few minutes of the LINQ – try the Shoppes at the Palazzo, the upscale collection at the Venetian, for brands like Prada, Jimmy Choo, and an enormous Barney’s.
How to Get There
The Linq is a clean, inexpensive hotel located midstrip. It is easy to access multiple other casinos and hotels. Clientele was on the younger side so maybe not the best place if you are wanting relaxation and peace & quiet but overall good experience.
The Linq's new Sports Book, conveniently called "The Book", is so amazing for people who love to watch sports. There is both first come, first serve seating as well as a reserved area that makes you feel as if you're watching at home on your comfy couch or recliner. Only difference is you are with hundreds of sports fans, just like you lol!! Food and drink service is available and the wait staff is very attentive. Tip 'em well.
As a young adult what’s not to love about this hotel?!
- The best central location on the strip; Right next to a main deuce bus stop, across the street from Caesars Forum Shops, quick walk to Bellagio Fountains, etc...
- An abundance of excellent restaurants at your fingertips, ranging in all price points. Guys, Yard House and Sprinkles are all on my list of Vegas favourites.
- The Promenade is a great spot to hang out day or night. Lots to discover.
- Clean, simple and contemporary rooms. The only hotel on the strip I have found that actually provides you with an EMPTY mini fridge!
- Pool area is a little small but has a good party vibe with decent service.
- Last but not least I absolutely love the scent they pump into this hotel.
I always know I will be happy with my stay at this hotel!
Positive points:This hotel has an amazing location, the room and bed are very nice.Negative points:Not worth to pay USD19/person for the breakfast. Better look for something outside.If you want to go to the pool, that is not too much big and it's very crowded in certain times.The day I was checking out the hotel, I wanted to pay the shuttle to take us to the hotel. The concierge was not opened yet, but there was a lady in a desk very close to the concierge counter and I asked her how I could book the shuttle to go to the airport. She replied to me: Sir, you need to wait the concierge to open. It was about 8:40AM and the concierge opens at 9:00AM.I was not satisfied with her answer and went to the taxi area outside of the hotel and asked to the door boys of the hotel how I should do to take a shuttle to the hotel. He told me to go to a counter nearby to the Registration counter of the hotel and pay for the shuttle. And simple like that, I went there, paid for the shuttle and at 9:00AM I was inside the shuttle going to the airport.But before getting into the shuttle, I went to the desk of that lady and told her: You should learn more about your hotel.
Great bar staff! Excellent video poker area with a lot of variety. And options. Was a little disappointed as a diamond player that I was not visited by a casino host - that usually happens. Perhaps it was because it was mid week.
