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
Great location, nice pool and rooms are decent for the price that we paid. But dont come here expecting to encounter any friendly faces! From the deals to the people at the front desk- everyone has a bad attitude.
Always an issue with check in. Kiosks don’t work and lines are very long. I recommend staying elsewhere. Room was never cleaned even though we did NOT opt out. Called the front desk who told us that we did opt out of cleaning service for a $10 dining voucher.... room never serviced and no voucher received. Spend a few extra dollars to stay at another one of the Caesar propertie.
Our visit was to visit relatives. We took in the friends and family discount. It's reasonably priced and the rooms were revised a few years ago but could use some connectivity updates. The bed was too soft. Housekeeping was okay. The casino was noisy and poorly laid out. Really not a place for families. A rather wild side show occurred at night. Fortunately, we missed most of it. Elevators were another point of contention. The worst aspect was the construction which made a mess of coming and going by car.
