Since being dubbed The Quad, the name has been reviled by just about everyone. Rumors of a change have been swirling since last year. There's also been talk that the old sportsbook might be turned into a nightclub so we'll need to see what happens with that.
The Quad/LINQ has been slowly renovating its 2,256 rooms and suites which should be finished this fall (rendering shown below). A new spa and pool deck will follow in early 2015. Caesars is hoping to attract millennial travelers using "social interaction" to The LINQ Hotel by "catering to the 'connected' consumer."
Tariq Shaukat, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Caesars Entertainment, hinted at all this saying, "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." The LINQ. Yup, there's probably going to be a couple of apps for that.
Room rates for the Quad this month begin at $27 a night, not including the $20 resort fee. In November, when the property is officially The Linq Hotel, that jumps to $82 a night.
