The latest addition to Caesars Entertainment’s portfolio of Las Vegas resorts has opened its doors to hotel guests. Robert Morse, Caesars’ president of hospitality, tells Travel Agent that The Linq Hotel & Casino is geared toward the under-40 crowd with an “edgier” energy than the main Strip resorts.
All rooms and suites offer interactive options on the guest room TV, giving guests access to hotel amenities such as room service, housekeeping items, alarm clock setup and deliverable board games. Room service from multiple dining outlets at The Linq Hotel & Casino and Promenade, such as Brooklyn Bowl and Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar, will also be available. The Linq will be one of the few hotels on the Strip without a buffet option. Guests can also access the interactive system from their smartphones.
The Linq Hotel, which can be found Center Strip, is a complete re-imagining of the former Quad Resort & Casino. The new property has five all-new suites and a completely unique experience with sweet drinks at the lobby bar 3535 (named for its Las Vegas Boulevard address), which has a dedicated DJ for a touch of a nightclub feel.
Agents should reach out to Jenna Sang ([email protected]), chief concierge, with any queries.
Between The Linq Hotel and another Caesars property, the Flamingo, is The Linq Promenade—a new open-air retail, dining and entertainment district dominated by the 550-foot High Roller observation wheel. The entire facility, which has been opening in stages, covers 300,000-plus square feet and, when complete, will have more than 30 shops, bars and restaurants. Coming soon: Off the Strip, a popular local bistro is expected to open a new eatery at The Linq in time for the holiday season and a spring debut is anticipated for Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips.
Other Promenade attractions include the aforementioned Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas (the venue’s first outpost beyond its namesake borough), with 32 bowling lanes and a large music venue for concerts; Sprinkles Cupcakes, with a 24-hour fresh-cupcake ATM; and the Polaroid Fotobar, which includes the Polaroid Museum. The surrounding lot can accommodate huge groups for a big party—as many as 75,000, in fact.
Of course, everyone who visits the Promenade will want to see the High Roller. Clients can buy-out cabins on the wheel for half-hour long rides, or they can buy two rides and stay put for an hour. (Top Tip: Try this at sunset and see how the Strip and the surrounding desert change from day to night.) Each cabin can hold up to 40 people, or 25 if they want a bar set up—just the thing for bachelor/bachelorette parties.
Want something really exclusive for your “high roller” clients? Book the entire High Roller—it can accommodate 1,120 people for those who want a mega-party. Good to know: Each cabin has eight video monitors, making presentations or photo displays easy.
We hear that more than 35 weddings have been planned for the High Roller so far. Cocktail carts can be set up for a reception, and even meals can be arranged for in-the-sky dining.
