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 play to stay. Friendly staff and clean rooms. I went for work a few days and had a great stay. Quite play to relax after work. Great play to play after work and have a relaxing drink. Definitely recommend
I love the location of this casino. Great restaurant choices and a lot going on. It’s in the mix of everything going on! And nothing’s better than drinking Titos while playing James Bond!!! Good times!
Arrived at 10pm and the room was not ready. Was offered 2 queens for me and my wife. No thanks. I paid a deposit on a king. Then here was a king room but it was not cleaned yet. I could wait a couple hours. No thanks. Stuck in the double queen like some frat boys then had to love to a king the next day. Exactly what i want to do on vacation. No genuine apology from shift manager. So basically if you aren’t a gambler or are low level gambler they really could care less about your satisfaction. Waitresses are scarce. Bartenders are not on the ball. And the amount of ridiculous pushy sales people are incredibly annoying.
