    Greetings all - I have visited Vegas numerous times but this is my first stay at Linq. This is a pleasure + business trip for me. I am attending a conference at the Caesar's conference center. I am looking for quiet room recommendations for early May - don't want pool or Carnaval Court late night noise. Any thoughts?
    Also, does anyone know how long and the best route for walking to the Caesars's Conference Center?
    Any other Linq nuggets to share?

    Hi there! I was at Linq a few weeks ago. Our room was on the 15th floor in "district 3" with a High Roller view. Did not have any issue with noise. Also be aware, there is no in room clock, not a big deal with cell phones, but just an FYI.

    Initially, we found it a little daunting trying to find our room. The halls are long and really not very well labeled. BUT we soon found an elevator that did not go all the way to the casino floor but rather floor two ( if I remember) then you'd make a left, go down a hall and there was a small escalator. If you take that escalator then go through the door, you will be close to the auto collection place, in a foyer like area. Just go left, walk past some little shops, and then the casino will be right there. ( Trust me it is easier once you do it, rather than trying to imagine what I am trying to explain :) )
     
    In the planning phase.

    A lot of people complain about the noise at LINQ, maybe I am too drunk and just passout, but I never hear it. Good luck, have a blast!

    I've stayed there 4 times and never once have heard a peep. I've been there all times of year, too. (January, November, June, July).

    I love the Linq. Only staying somewhere different this time because my parents booked the Linq while I'm there and what 29 year old wants to stay at the same hotel as their parents!?!?! Plus when you're getting comp'd a 650 square foot at Caesars with a strip view, how do you say no?

    The elevators BEHIND the elevators are a nice secret that most people seem to miss. Always less busy. The elevators used to be VERY slow but in January they were great so it seems they've finally fixed that.

    You didn't mention if you had any TR status, but if you happen to be diamond, the diamond check in offers free bottled pepsi/diet pepsi/mountain dew/mist and coffee. They also have cup cakes mid-day during the week. And the 3535 bar gives 2 free drinks whenever you ask for it if you're diamond.

    The Yard House, which is in the promenade, is delicious and cheap. Happy hour, monday to friday from 3 to 6. $6 burgers, $6 chicken fingers and fries, $4 pints, $10 half yards. They have 150-200 types of beer, depending on the season.

    Rickie and Ron are the two best pit bosses at the tables and always remember me. Rose was fun too, but she didn't remember me. Avoid playing at a table with a dealer named Mom. She's clueless and even the pit bosses don't like working with her.

    Drink service is great and fast at the linq tables, especially in O'Sheas. They pour in their own cups in O'sheas too which are bigger. Only casino I've ever been cut off in (might be because I was collecting drinks one night at 3 am. I don't blame them for not giving me a fourth when my first still wasn't finished yet)

    Thanks for all the info! This is my second visit in 6 months and I am excited! I usually go during football season so it will feel a little strange not having a game to watch. I look forward some craps tho.
    Last visit i spent a couple nights at Red Rocks before moving to the Strip - i enjoyed Yardbirds there and look forward to Linq.

    You'll be fine. We were on the 20th floor and the front desk person set us up so we weren't facing Carnaval Court. No noise at all.

    Stayed there a couple of weeks ago. Ask for a quiet room. We were on the 18th floor facing the Linq promenade. I could hear some base noise from somewhere, but not sure from where. My husband has had a conference at Caesars. The easiest way to walk is to exit the elevators and walk through the casino to go out the doors by Flamingo's Margaritaville. At that corner, cross Las Vegas Boulevard and cross again to the left (a turning lane), then follow the small winding walkway to the main entrance, then walk down the stairs into the pit (gaming tables) and straight back past Rao's and follow the signs. It's the most direct path. It takes between 10-15 minutes.

    I just posted a TR about the Linq. I asked for a quiet room and I got a 5th floor room facing the High Roller/Garage. It was quiet. My only issue with noise was the AC turning on and off, it's loud. As was pointed out, take the extra elevators, they are much quicker. Tag Bar is great for a little VP and beer. I found the bartenders to be friendly and generous. Yard House is great for bar food and drink. There's a Starbucks in the Linq Promenade near the strip for a quick morning coffee.

    I was also at a conference, so I didn't get to really hang out at the Linq a lot. But overall I liked it.
