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 room is clean and modern, it's a little small but we just rest anyways while we are in there. I had a strip view and some music from the club was not to loud at all. The room has all the amenities one needs minus a coffee maker.
I have stayed at the Linq numerous times. I see nothing has been done about the line-up to check in (again, they don't care because you have already PAID to stay there....you can wait in a hour line-up, they don't care). See my previous posts on this issue. Three employees at the most dealing with a long line of people waiting to check in. Not acceptable. Also, I see bottled water used to be the room upon check-in. No more. How expensive is a couple bottles of water in the room???? Lastly, I see a person has the option to refuse daily room service for a whole $10 credit at the Linz eateries or bars. Give me a break. This should be $10 a day! Are you going to tell me room service (alledgedy cleaning, vacuuming, towel refresh, garbage disposal) is worth only $10 no matter how long your stay is???? Doesn't say a lot about their housecleaning. Sorry, but I think clients deserve some sort of value for their nightly room rate...plus resort fee which is absolutely a bunch of ####.
We loved the LINQ. So convenient to everything on the strip. Very nice staff and very helpful. Restaurants and shops right outside were great. This will our go to hotel while in Vegas from now on. Thank you!
