When the Imperial Palace was re-branded as the Quad no one was particularly overjoyed with the new name it wasn’t bad but it was just kind of bland and with the Quad name sounded like a school or college space. Well now the Quad is being re-branded as the Linq Hotel & Casino which makes a lot of sense as its attached to the Linq Entertainment District and as you can see in the video above the 2,256 rooms will all be completely remodeled ahead of the planned opening date of Halloween this year. As part of the $223 million remodel is a planned new pool space which is greatly needed as the old pool was a rectangle concrete pool with not a lot of charm. The room update is underway at the moment and the newly modern urban rooms as Caesar’s has called them will come with a room rate starting at $89 plus resort fee as opposed to the roughly $20 a night plus resort fee that can often be had at the current Quad. I’m sad to see this often lowest room rate on the Strip at a great center Strip location being taken upscale with a higher rate but it makes a lot of sense for Caesar’s who could use the higher rate to help with their debt load.
