Linq Hotel and Casino
Caesars Entertainment announced today its newest property on the Strip, the $223 million Linq Hotel & Casino, a reimagination of the current Quad Resort & Casino that was formerly Imperial Palace.
The Linq Hotel & Casino will feature 2,256 brand-new urban and modern rooms and suites, a renovated entrance built around a lobby bar, all-new retail and spa amenities and a new pool deck.
Combined with the world’s largest observation wheel, the High Roller, and the Linq Promenade retail, dining and entertainment walkway, the Linq Hotel & Casino will welcome its first guests Oct. 30. Guests, at a special introductory rate starting at $89, may book reservations online at TheLinq.com or by calling (855) 891-6863.
The Linq Promenade includes 12 restaurants, eight bars, 14 retail shops and two concert venues and is anchored by the High Roller, recently named by Travel & Leisure as the “World’s Coolest New Tourist Attraction.”
“With the Linq, we pioneered the creation of a new type of space for the changing Las Vegas consumer,” said Tariq Shaukat, executive VP and CMO of Caesars Entertainment in a news release. “The Linq Hotel & Casino will continue this revolutionary approach by offering a complete lifestyle experience at one of the best locations in Las Vegas.
“The resort will provide guests with a highly social and connected environment, with all the great restaurants, shops and experiences available at the Linq Promenade right at their fingertips.”
