The Quad To Get Re-Do, New Name
LAS VEGAS (AP) — An aging Las Vegas Strip resort is getting a $223 million upgrade to match the hip new dining and entertainment district next door.
Caesars Entertainment said Tuesday that it’s overhauling The Quad and renaming it the LINQ Hotel & Casino effective Oct. 30. It’s the same name as the popular pedestrian mall that opened earlier this year and features the world’s tallest Ferris wheel.
The property was formerly known as the Imperial Palace and was renamed The Quad two years ago, when Caesars started remodeling the ground-level casino and restaurants.
But online reviewers are generally critical of the 2,300-room hotel, calling it outdated and dirty.
Caesars promises a completely renovated hotel built around a lobby bar, along with new stores and spa amenities and a new pool deck.
