On October 30, 2014 THE QUAD will be renamed as the LINQ HOTEL AND CASINO.
The QUAD will only have lived for two years since it replaced the IMPERIAL PALACE in September 2012.
The QUAD was popular among travelers who don’t want to spend a lot of cash in rooms and seek a good location. Indeed, located between the FLAMINGO and the HARRAH’S and with room rates starting as low as 20$/night, The QUAD was a perfect option to stay in the middle of the action for a very reasonable rate.
Although The QUAD offered a brand new casino, the rest of the operation was not much more than just a renaming of the former IMPERIAL PALACE since, with only $2.3 million invested, most of the aged rooms of the hotel remained unchanged (cockroached included according to some traveler reviews…)
CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT invests $223 Millions
In July 2014, Caesars Entertainment group announced that the hotel would be renamed again as THE LINQ HOTEL AND CASINO with an investment of $223 million promising this time a real transformation of the resort. $78 million would be spent on renovating the rooms.
