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
Love The Linq! Centrally located, clean, modern, updated rooms. They do have small closet spaces with curtains and bath products are pumps in shower area. If you are Platinum or above you can get early check-in and save the $30 fee! Love the benefits of Platinum in Vegas!
we loved that the location of the Linq was in the middle of everything that was going on in Vegas.Rooms are small but we didn't spend much time in them.Dealers were very pleasant and helpful.rooms were clean and all the employees were great.
I was in the hotel for five nights. Room was smaller than I expected but it was in 20th floor, away from the city noise- one of the irritations of the Strip.
Easy check-in/out. Friendly and caring housekeeping staff. Bathroom and towels were clean.
WiFi access was free for two devices. Speed was good.
Location was very good.
Room was small and crowded. It would not be suitable for a family with a child.
I was surprised about lack of amenities for a hotel in this class though. No kettle, shower caps, cotton swabs, toothpaste, etc. Only a single piece of soap in addition to soap/shampoo dispenser attached to the shower area.
I booked the hotel through an special offer hence the price was much lower than standard rates. If not, I would have been very disappointed.
The hotel was really nice. The room was very modern. I will return to this hotel again. although, I wish they would have done something special for my boyfriends birthday. I would have liked a microwave in the room.
Located in the heart of the new party area of the Strip. Younger crowd, needed to order extra towels and wash cloths because 2 didn’t cut it but over good place to stay! You have to get the donuts!!!!
