The Quad Resort & Casino is being transformed into The LINQ Hotel & Casino. All of the rooms as well as the pool deck, spa and retail area are being renovated. Construction has already begun. The name change will be official on Oct. 30, 2014, with construction due to be completed by spring 2015. The resort will remain open throughout construction.If you're looking for a Vegas resort with a prime location at the center of the Strip and very affordable prices, a good place to keep at the top of your mind is The Quad Resort & Casino. Much of The Quad's interior and exterior have been refurbished. Among the new elements are a renovated porte cochere, casino floor and Catalyst Bar. The Quad is also connected to The LINQ, an outdoor entertainment, shopping and dining district that houses the High Roller observation wheel. O'Sheas Casino has debuted as well -- with three bars, 11 table games, 15 video poker machines and six beer pong tables. Caesars Entertainment has announced that The Quad will be rebranded as The LINQ Hotel & Casino on Oct. 30, 2014. As part of a $223 million renovation project, the property's 2,256 rooms and suites will be remodeled to feature contemporary decor elements as well as pillow-top mattresses, 47-inch flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations with speakers and rain shower heads. In addition, a new pool area (featuring both a standard hotel pool and a dayclub experience), a new lobby bar, a new spa and fitness center, and the new Vortex Roof Deck, are under construction and will debut in spring 2015.The Quad is an always-bustling, mid-sized property situated within walking distance from several of the city's most famous resorts -- including Caesars Palace, The Mirage, Flamingo, Bally's and Harrah's.The Quad also boasts a Las Vegas Monorail stop, which means you'll have easy access to most of the hotels up and down South Las Vegas Boulevard.Catering to visitors of all ages and from all walks of life, The Quad is not a stuffy, elite-style resort.The amenities are spread throughout several floors. The ground floor houses the action-packed casino. It tends to be crowded around the clock. One of focal points in the casino is the Dealertainers pit. You can sit down at blackjack tables where celebrity impersonators dressed as Beyoncé, Elvis, Pink and many more deal the cards. Often, they have to excuse themselves to belt out one of their character's hits from the elevated stage.Take the escalator to the second floor and you'll discover additional entertainment options. Jeff Civillico does comedy juggling and other stunts in the afternoon. You can also see the drag extravaganza "Divas Las Vegas" starring Frank Marino in the evening. Or Recycled Percussion, a group that pounds away on everything from buckets and trash cans to ladders and power tools, also perform in a rock 'n' roll-oriented production in the evening.The place to drink at the resort is Fat Tuesday, where you can order a variety of frozen daiquiris, perfect to cool you down during the hot summer months. Beers and cocktails of all kinds are available in the casino at the Catalyst Bar. TAG Lounge & Bar also offers more than 300 bottled, can and large-format brews from the U.S. and around the world -- you can even serve yourself at pour-your-own-draft tables. If history is more your thing, check out The Auto Collections. More than 250 classic or historically significant vehicles are being displayed on the fifth floor of the hotel's self-parking garage -- some of which are for sale.?The Quad is home to several great dining options. Chef Guy Fieri, of Food Network's top-rated show "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," has opened his first Las Vegas restaurant -- called Guy Fieri's Kitchen & Bar -- at the north entrance of the resort. South-of-the-border cuisine along with an array of margaritas and a mechanical bull are offered at Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Tequila Bar at the south end of the property. The Quad also boasts has a Hash House A Go Go. The chain restaurant is known for its delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner comfort foods -- which come in oversized portions. Watch the big games on one of the 12 large screens in the spacious sports book on the third floor. Horse racing fans will be impressed by the stadium-style seating, complete with 230 individual monitors.Work up a sweat in the fitness center. You can get a manicure in The Salon at The Quad, but the spa is currently closed for renovation.Clean and comfortable, The Quad's towers feature a variety of accommodations ranging from classic rooms with all the basics to deluxe "luv tub" rooms that have spa tubs thrown into the mix. Plus, pet-loving guests are welcome to bring their four-legged friends (weighing less than 50 pounds) to lodge in the special PetStay rooms.For those wanting to tie the knot, the Silver Sky Chapel features two fine venues: the signature Skyline Chapel and the Southwestern Chapel with a desert motif. The resort has a stretch of souvenir stores located near the room elevators as well. Shops include Amparo, Whiskey Run, Gifts to Go and Relaxation Palace.The Quad is a resort offering value-oriented accommodations. Whether you are coming to party with a group of friends, bringing your family for a vacation or attending a conference, the hotel is sure to suit you.-- By Renée LiButtiNOTE: Due to construction at The Quad, as it is being transformed into The LINQ Hotel & Casino, guests may may encounter temporary inconveniences, construction walls and some noise during daytime hours. The Quad's spa and pool are currently closed for remodeling. Guests can use the Beach Club pool at Flamingo Las Vegas or the pools at Paris Las Vegas and the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

PostedJune 19, 2012
In my reservation I requested a non-smoking room with two double beds. Upon check in I was informed no such rooms were available. I was offered the choice of a smoking double or a non-smoking king with a rollaway bed. I chose the king only to find that it was smoking as well. For the inconvenience we were upgraded to a room on the second floor. Our patio was literally steps from the pool. The pool and Jacuzzi closes at 5 so don't plan on relaxing with the cool Vegas breeze in the evenings with the warm water. The staff was hit or miss. Some employees were happy and some (such as the manager that oversees the pool maintenance) seemed as rude and unhappy as they get. Example: having a room withing walking distance of the room I was curious what the pool hours actually were. So very pleasantly I walked up to the manager to ask him. I even started the conversation with "How are you doing today?" Not only did he seem horrible irritated by my very presence, but his response was full of snarl and attitude. I shrugged it off to the thought that he must be having a bad day, but it did upset me. The buffet was about $22 a person. Some of the food was really delicious, and some (like the mash potatoes) were uneditable. They did have snow crab legs and they were very fresh. The casino is kind of boring, it doesn't have any place playing music or to dance except or the dealertainers. (dealers dressed in costumes that preform). The location is good being that it's right in the heart of the strip and next to the Venetian. All in all, for the price it's doable.

Seeking an affordable base for your Vegas vacation? The South Point is a lively option for families, mature travelers and even clubbers who want to be close to all the action but not necessarily right in the middle of it. Frequented by locals, this mid-range hotel sits on the outlying southern end of Las Vegas Boulevard about five miles (that's less than 10 minutes) from the Welcome to Fabulous to Las Vegas sign, which marks the start of the Strip.Equine aficionados will be right at home here. The South Point is revered for its Equestrian Complex. It boasts a 4,600-seat arena, where riding and rodeo events are held year-round, along with 1,200 climate-controlled horse stalls. A giant statue of local gaming maverick Benny Binion on horseback is situated near the entry -- a simple tribute to the man who brought the National Finals Rodeo to Las Vegas.Non-equestrian entertainment is plentiful outside the complex. The hotel is home to a 16-screen movie theater and a 64-lane bowling center. The Showroom at South Point also features a variety of singers, bands and comedians, along with the Saturday night '80s dance party led by the Spazmatics.Bars of every shape and size are located throughout the hotel -- some are just steps away from each other. The Malibu Bar and Island Bar serve up tropical spirits, while the Lobby Bar is a focal gathering point in the heart of the casino. The Silverado Lounge offers a classic, Old West ambiance with a wood-paneled bar and overstuffed chairs. By the race and sports book, the Del Mar Lounge is a great spot for a cold beer during the game, and the Grandview Lounge at the southern end of the casino has a "Cheers"-like vibe and often hosts dance bands on weekend nights. The South Point possesses a multitude of dining options sure to satisfy any appetite. A standout among the restaurants is the intimate gourmet room Michael's. With a 20-year history, it has won accolades for the excellent filet mignon, sirloin steak and seafood preparations. Meat lovers looking for a more casual setting with equally succulent cuts can mosey into the Silverado Steakhouse or Primarily Prime Rib. Exotic cravings are filled with the freshly made pastas in Don Vito's and south-of-the-border favorites at Baja Miguel's. The Asian restaurant Zenshin serves the freshest sashimi, nigiri and sushi rolls -- including their Vegas-themed 777, Double Down Salmon and Jackpot Rolls.For quick ways to appease your hunger pangs in between hands and other casino play, try the Coronado Café or the Garden Buffet, which offers six live cooking stations. The Del Mar Deli is a fabulous spot for New York-style soups, sandwiches and decadent desserts. Plus, the beloved Midwestern chain Steak 'n Shake, known for its "steakburgers" and hand-dipped shakes, opened its first Las Vegas location inside the South Point. Don’t forget to play in the finest bingo room around, indulge in a cutting-edge treatment and salon service at the Costa Del Sur Spa & Salon, work out in the 24-hour fitness room or relax in the lagoon-style pool and hot tub. Kids and teens can spend hours at the Time-Out Arcade, while men will enjoy an expert shave and haircut at the Barber Shop. A stay at the South Point is also ideal for business travelers, who will have access to 71,000 square feet of meeting space and wireless internet access (included in the resort fee) in the rooms and lobby. There's a large business center that offer computers, copy and fax services, shipping and office supplies as well.The hotel has 2,163 spacious rooms and suites. Comfortably furnished, each one comes with a 42-inch LED television, a hair dryer, an iron and ironing board, a coffeemaker and a clock radio with MP3 connectivity. Free shuttle service to McCarran International Airport is available.Conveniently located close to the Strip and many of Vegas' most exciting attractions, you'll experience unmatched hospitality at the South Point while benefiting from a hotel that’s a breed above the rest.--By Renée LiButti
