The LINQ Hotel & Casino (formerly Flamingo Capri, Imperial Palace and The Quad) is a 2,640-room hotel, casino and shopping promenade on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. It is owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment Corporation. The casino is 3,056 m2 with 830 slot machines, 55 table games, and a race and sports book.
The property began as the $2 million, 180-room Flamingo Capri motel, owned by George E. Goldberg and Bill Capri. The motel was built directly north of the Flamingo Hotel and Casino, where Capri was an employee. The motel was being operated as part of the Best Western hotel chain, while retaining the Flamingo Capri name. The new Imperial Palace Tower, which raised the number of rooms from 300 to 650, was completed in July 1977. The property later re-opened as the Imperial Palace Hotel and Casino on November 1, 1979. In 1986, the casino was expanded by 1,400 m2, with the meeting and convention space also being expanded. A fourth hotel tower was also added in 1986, for a total of 2,100 rooms. A major expansion from August 1987 to July 1989 included a new swimming pool, a two-story waterfall, heated spa and poolside bar, a nightclub, race & sports book, health and fitness center, and office complex. In August 2011, Caesars Entertainment Corporation announced it will be building a massive entertainment complex adjacent to the Imperial Palace called Project LINQ. The Imperial Palace name will be retired and the property renamed. On September 17, 2012, Caesars Entertainment Corporation announced that Imperial Palace would be renamed The Quad Resort and Casino. In July 2014, Caesars announced that the Quad would be again renamed The Linq Hotel & Casino in order to join the LINQ Promenade, an adjacent shopping and entertainment center that opened in January 2014, following a $223 million renovation of the property. The hotel and casino were officially renamed on October 30, 2014.

The LINQ Hotel & Casino has a hip pool deck with two distinct areas, a standard hotel pool and a day club experience. If you can’t decide between the two, hang out at the center bar.
