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
I would visit this hotel again! I had a great stay. I was walking distance from everything, there are a lot of restaurants nearby and in the hotel with great happy hours! I had a good nights sleep and the room was clean. Definitely a steal for what we paid. The pool is small, its more for people watching and lounging in the pool., not enough room to swim. The DJ at the pool was good and played top 100 music. The hotel is next to the Flamingo, which has a larger pool that you can visit for free as an option.
We have stayed here 3 or 4 times. This last trip was the best. We stayed in "District One" which was super convenient and a super quiet room. We have stayed in the other Districts before and one of them was so noisy we requested a different room in the middle of the night due to noise from outside the hotel. Now we know! Great coffee in the morning and cinnamon rolls right downstairs. Hash House and Guy Fieri's right there also. Great location for us as we like to play at the Linq and Flamingo. Easy access to some good restaurants in the promenade right outside the "back door!" Definitely recommend.
Stayed for one night before an early flight. Uber driver couldn’t find the entrance due to construction (we even asked construction workers where to go and they had no clue) so that was a long, hot walk with luggage. Check in line was very long so we tried the kiosks but those didn’t work either. Staff did send us to the front of the line for trying the kiosks though so that was nice. Room was pretty standard, but comfortable. You don’t pay much for it, but I wouldn’t rate it as a 4star (or higher) hotel. Location is excellent and the Linq promenade has some great restaurants. We tried it, but will find something different next time.
This was my second time staying at the Linq. The room was clean, comfortable and updated. The location on the strip is perfect. I factored the resort fee ($39 per day) into my comparison of other properties in the area and found the price competitive. The only issues we ran into were that on Friday (June 7) we retired early in the morning and asked for a do not disturb sign since none was in the room. One was promptly placed on the door as requested. We then left about 10:00 or 11:00 am to go out and we removed the door sign. The room was never cleaned that day but it seems like it should have been since we left the room early and never requested that housekeeping be skipped. Otherwise housekeeping was great. The only other issue was that the faucet came loose on Wednesday and was unusable. We reported it and it was promptly repaired. Although I was very pleased with our stay, in my departure survey, I asked if it would be possible to have two days of resort fees waived for these inconveniences. I thought that their terse response that “we will not be refunding the resort fees” left a bad impression after an otherwise fun stay. I think they could have at least made some kind of concession for this service failure.
It was wonderful I loved every thing the room the slots the people I wood love to come back and play the food and drinks was great the workers was nice and I love the music and the dancing I will definitely be coming back.
