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 casino! friendly management and staff. highly recommend checking out this hotel/casino if you are taking a trip to Las Vegas! Good location on the strip and proximity to other great locations! overall great!
They provided a diverse and stimulating array of options. The food was great. There a lot of young people, but also appeared to be accommodating for people of all ages. I really enjoyed that all the properties were clustered together so that you could gain points at the various casinos with ease.
The room was very spacious and the hotel was amazing everyone was friendly. This was actually my second stay at the Linq and I'm already planning my third stay. The restaurant are great as well my husband can't stop talking about the steak.
Great environment, you must go to the street leading to the Highroller Farris Wheel. That is always the best place for food and entertainment at resonable price on the strip. Being Saint Patrick’s Day it made the visit more entertaining.
You will enjoy your visit to the Linq if your a people watcher. Everyone has a great time here. Clean and bright with great ventilation. Lots of variety for everyone with a lean towards the younger crowd. If you're there, by all means, take in The Brooklyn Wanderers show. They are terrific and make a very strong attempt to reach their audience on a personal level.
