The Linq Hotel & Casino is a convenient center Strip location next to The Linq Promenade that features the High Roller observation wheel.

Smack bang in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip stands The Linq Hotel & Casino, a cool and hip new addition to Sin City with trendy upgrades to its 2,253 rooms, a reimagined pool deck, all new dining and nightlife venues, and a modern casino floor.

Regulars to Las Vegas may remember the property as Imperial Palace and then its interim iteration The Quad during renovations.

As the saying goes, not one stone was left unturned leading up to its 100 percent completion last October; every room was stripped to its bare bones and completely built out with new walls, carpet, and amenities. But don’t worry about paying a fortune to enjoy this property; Linq is affordable while carrying a fun vibe similar to The Cosmopolitan across the Strip, but without hefty prices.

Each room at The Linq Hotel is brand new with views of the Las Vegas Strip or High Roller observation wheel.

A standard room, averaging 350-square feet and starting at $89 per night, features a fresh, modern design with floor to ceiling windows, boasting views of the iconic Las Vegas Strip or the High Roller, the world’s largest observation wheel.

The centerpiece of the room design are three distinct accent wall backdrops featuring stylized renderings of vintage Las Vegas signage, providing guests with a unique experience each time they visit the hotel.

Looking to indulge a little extra when it comes to accommodation? The Linq Hotel offers 244 suites and two unique penthouses along with 25 cabana suites with private access to the pool deck.

Positioned between Flamingo Las Vegas and Harrah’s Las Vegas, this convenient center Strip location of the resort also offers guests access to The Linq Promenade featuring more than 30 shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues.

The Linq Hotel & Casino is located at 3535 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas, NV 89109.

Cool down at 21+ pool deck

Looking for a cooling escape from the Las Vegas summer sun? With views of the High Roller observation wheel and The Linq Promenade, The Linq Hotel’s pool deck for guests 21 and over features two pools, a 32-seat center bar lined with four plasma televisions and full of signature cocktails, draft beer, frozen drinks, and poolside dining options from Nook Express.

The main pool boasts a wet deck with lily pad daybeds available for rent, while the second pool is accessed from a standalone elevated deck with tables available for rent as well.

There are 10 cabanas available for rent which include a large sectional seating area, personal electronic safe, plasma TV, USB port for phone/music player, built-in speakers, reserved chaise lounges, and a refrigerator stocked with bottled water and RESQWATER. There are also 35 daybeds that line the pool deck and include a personal electronic safe, a handy compartment to keep clothing and shoes dry, and built-in umbrella holders to provide shade from the sun.

The Linq Pool hosts weekly and monthly events including fashion shows, reggae-inspired parties, DJ competitions, and “Champagne Sundays” pool parties.

Unwind at The Spa with Himalayan salt therapy

Facials, body treatments, massages, and even Himalayan salt therapy – that’s just a few of the indulgences at Spa at The Linq, Caesars Entertainment’s first brand-new spa concept since Caesars Palace’s QUA Baths & Spa.

One of the most unique amenities is the spa’s Himalayan salt therapy cave. Natural salt caves have been used for centuries to help with congestion, asthma, and other sinus conditions. Enjoyed by Europeans for centuries, salt therapy also known as halotherapy emulates the conditions inside a natural salt cave. This is done by infusing the air with small particles of the highest quality salt.

The spa includes separate men’s and women’s lounges. Both lounges have whirlpools, as well as eucalyptus steam rooms with cold, refreshing peppermint towels. Other spa guest amenities include a Harmonize Water Bar, tea options and zero gravity lounge chairs.

Aromatherapy enriches the experience of every spa treatment. The Spa at The Linq offers aromatherapy as a part of every service if requested at no extra charge. Guests have the ability to choose their desired scent and can incorporate them into their treatments to enhance the relaxation.

For reservations and additional information, call 702.794.3242.

High Roller headlines The Linq Promenade

Let’s get one thing straight – don’t call it a Ferris wheel or you will be quickly corrected when visiting The Linq Promenade, an open-air shopping, dining, and entertainment district next to The Linq Hotel. Much less bustling than Las Vegas Boulevard, the strip is anchored by the world’s tallest observation wheel, known as the Las Vegas High Roller. A first for The Strip, The Linq is a pedestrian-friendly district with a true neighborhood vibe and plays host to a variety of special events, festivals, and more.

There are more than 30 unique shops, restaurants, bars and entertainment venues that guests can explore as they make their way to the 550-foot High Roller, which offers breathtaking views of Las Vegas from a glass-enclosed cabin during a 30 minute ride.

In its first year, the High Roller has received many accolades including three Best of Las Vegas Awards for “Best Attraction,” “Best Amusement Ride” and “Best Place to View the City.”
