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 Linq is not the fanciest Las Vegas hotel, but it is clean, nicely appointed. We had a basic King room. Huge bathroom. No view but we only used the room for sleeping anyway. No upgrade offered, but they comped our Keurig (normally $10/day).
Express check-in/check out very convenient.
The best thing about this hotel is its location. Right outside is the Promenade with shops and restaurants. Very sorry walk to both Harahhs and the Flamingo. We will return
We stayed here in may 2018 for 5 nights
The location was really great in the middle of the strip and loads of places to eat around.The hotel also has a massive wheel, which we went on with a free bar!
We have a standard double room, didn’t have a view but it was great for us as we were out and about every day. The rooms were clean and the shower etc were great
The staff were fine and helpful when needed
The pool is 21 and over, you can get fresh towels every day. There is music playing and pool parties at the pool each day.
Overall we had a good stay, we were out and about most of the time. I think it was good value for money!!
Excellent, fun location. Staff was nice. Casino was clean and happening. Mat Franco show was funny and very entertaining. Lots going on around the casino. Tons to do. Shops and restaurants, neighboring casinos very close, high roller wheel.
My room was supposed to be a non-smoking room but clearly had recently been occupied recently by someone who smoke cigars. I was hit with the odor as soon as I hit the door. Housekeeping sprayed the room and that seemed to help somewhat.
The room had a king sized bed that clearly had seen better days and should be replaced.
The check in/check out process was very easy, the front desk and bell staff were great.
The Linq hotel is a great place to stay. Our room was the same floor from the pool. We had a short walk to be at a pool party with a live dj. We found a spot right away & we enjoyed the afternoon with some great music & absolute fun under the wheel or the hot Vegas sun!
& I must add O' Shea's pub is in there an Irish bar. It's gives u the feel of being in Ireland sort of but kudos for that 💟🍀.
Totally recommend staying @ the LINQ
