There's Another New Hotel Coming to Las Vegas (Well, Kinda)
The jazzy, bright and LED-screen heavy Quad Hotel and Casino, which replaced the fading Imperial Palace on the Las Vegas Strip last year, is already getting tuned out.
Caesars Entertainment announced today that the Quad will undergo more than $200 million worth of additional renovations to turn into the LINQ Hotel & Casino, capitalizing on the adjacent LINQ shopping and entertainment district that opened this spring and which culminates in the soaring High Roller observation wheel.
The Quad/LINQ has been slowly renovating its 2,256 rooms and suites which should be finished this fall as will the much-needed renovation of the exterior, which is still from the Imperial Palace days. A new spa and a new pool deck will open in early 2015. Yet, the energy of The Quad should remain as Caesars is hoping to attract millennial travelers using "social interaction" 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.
The elevator lobby.
What the pool deck and exterior will look like.
And what it looks like today.
VegasChatter reports that room rates for the Quad this month begin at $27 a night, not including the $20 resort fee. In November, that jumps to $82 a night.
