 The Quad Resort & Casino
The Quad Resort & Casino
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. In addition to traditional table games and slots, you'll find a state-of-the-art race and sports book and a five-table poker room. The casino tends to be crowded around the clock. 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. 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.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. 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 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.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Not worth the low rate.
PostedFebruary 15, 2014
Booked for 2 nights due to the nice low rate for family visiting from out of town, figured the rate was only low due to the construction of the Linq next door. Had kept hearing the place was remodeled since the old Imperial Palace days. Unfortunately it appears the only thing refurbished at this place was the lobby and the sign. Parking was non-existent in the garage and we had to park at PH and drag suitcases down the strip. Waited in line over 30 minutes just to check in while the floor was sweltering hot, and was not given the wifi access code. Once in the room, all the decor was still old Imperial Palace and dated, the carpet was filthy, and we were left a bonus welcome barfed-in hand towel on the balcony. (I suppose thats where the $15 per night resort fee went). For the second night of the stay I booked them elsewhere and just ate the cheap Quad rate for the night. Overall I was embarrassed to have recommended and booked this place for family. For their return in a few months I have already booked elsewhere for 4X as much to try and make up for the Quad. Also, the timeshare hawkers in the Quad and next door at their sister property were unrelenting and thick as locusts, not a very fun thing on a Sunday morning.

The Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino has a long history.Here's our condensed version: It originally opened in 1969 as the International Hotel. On that first night Barbra Streisand headlined the showroom, and Elvis Presley appeared on the second night. The King of Rock 'n' Roll, of course, would go on to become synonymous with the property -- even after it became the Las Vegas Hilton in 1971. He performed there in a total of 837 consecutive sold-out shows (before a whopping 2.5 million people), thus breaking all the city's attendance records.So why are we sharing this bit of trivia with you? Well, many people refer to those as the good ol' days. And guess what? They're back again!No, Elvis hasn't come back from the grave. But someone who treasures his legacy and wants to return the hotel to its former glory has the reins. David Siegel, founder and CEO of Westgate Resorts, the world's largest privately owned timeshare company, bought the property in mid 2014 and transformed it into the Westgate Las Vegas.Thanks to Siegel, the King will always have a big role at the resort. A famous statue of Elvis by sculptor Carl Romanelli can be found in "the building" (near the lobby, to be more exact). And on April 23, 2015, Graceland Presents ELVIS: The Exhibition - The Show - The Experience will debut. It will feature a display of hundreds of artifacts from the Presley family's treasured Graceland Archives, Graceland-produced videos and Elvis-themed live shows for limited engagement runs on the very stage where Elvis performed.So what else is unique at the Westgate Las Vegas?You'll love having easy access to the Las Vegas Monorail. The Westgate Las Vegas is located about a block east of the Las Vegas Strip, next to the Las Vegas Convention Center and about a mile from Wynn Las Vegas and Encore. But if you hop on the monorail, you'll be able to travel easily to several major megaresorts including MGM Grand and SLS Las Vegas.The Westgate Las Vegas is also revered among race and sports bettors, thanks to the illustrious SuperBook. This huge facility is THE place to watch a big game. With more than 350 seats, 28 giant screens and one massive 15-by-20-foot monitor, you won't miss a moment of the action. Or try sitting in The Ultimate Fan Cave, which is packed with armchairs. A giant New York deli-style sandwich, subs and good grilled stuff is available just a few steps away at the SuperBook Deli.Speaking of eating, the Westgate Las Vegas has a variety of dining choices…some that might even appeal to Elvis. For instance, Sid's Cafe, a 24-hour eatery in the heart of the casino, serves an item called The Elvis Sandwich, made with peanut butter, grape jelly and sliced bananas (plus it's battered and fried!).Ever been to a hibachi-style restaurant? If not, you've got to try Benihana. There's nothing like sitting by the grill, sipping a few cocktail and cheering on the chef who cooks your meal. Teru Sushi (where you can chow down on the Las Vegas Roll) is near Benihana in a lovely complex with waterfalls and a koi pond.You can get a good steak -- done over a mesquite flame and served with maitre d' butter (we're not sure what that is, but we bet it tastes wonderful) -- at TJ's Steakhouse, which is positioned behind the sophisticated Plaza Bar.Have a big appetite? The spread at The Buffet features flavors from around the world. Or if you desire a quick bite, Fortuna (a coffee and wine bar), Silk Road Noodle Bar and the food court are all good choices.Now if Elvis isn't your thing, don't be blue…entertainment at the Westgate Las Vegas includes Jason Tenner, who performs as Prince in "Purple Reign: THE Prince Tribute," and the sultry topless revue "Sexxy" starring Jennifer Romas. Plus, actress, author and singer extraordinaire Suzanne Somers will launch "Suzanne Sizzles" on May 23, 2015. In addition, The Spa will renamed the Suzanne Somers Spa and feature all of her Suzanne Organics Cosmetics products and the Suzanne Somers Organic Spa Cafe, which will serve food based on recipes from her cookbooks.  Situated off the casino floor, the Tempo lounge serves classic cocktails...with a twist (we'll give you a one-word clue: "bev-tainers")! It's also the perfect spot to gather for pre- and post- theater drinks or to dance to a mix of '70s, '80s and '90s hits in the late-night hours.At the Westgate Las Vegas, you'll also find several shops (carrying gifts, apparel and sweets), a fitness room and tennis courts. In April 2015 the newly renovated pool will reopen on the third floor with custom cabanas and a pool bar. Or float away in bliss with one of many pampering services at The Spa.One thing to keep in mind if you stay at the Westgate Las Vegas: Since it's part of Westgate Resorts' family of timeshare properties, you'll see a large space (toward the North Tower) dedicated to presentations about the benefits of vacation ownership. You may even be approached by people asking you to attend one.Plus, you'll notice some areas of the resort are under construction. Siegel's long-term plans for the Westgate Las Vegas include upgrades to many facilities as well as the debut of several new restaurants.So don't worry, he's just taking care of business -- and molding the resort into one that's fit for a King.
