I got to the Linq Saturday night (12/5). I have walked through the casino a few times before I have stayed there. I have to say I have mixed feelings about the place. I think they did a nice job remodeling the place from IP. I just wish they had put in a new ventilation system. Maybe some smoke eaters. It was definitely smoky. So, first night in Vegas, It started off not so good. The wait time for the shuttle buses were about 30-40 minutes, so I decided to take a cab. Of course I get the rude ass that took his time and went the long way around the airport. He ended up racking up a $25 tab. I learned my lesson and will not take a cab in Vegas again. One too many times that has happened to me. I get to the hotel and the staff was quite friendly. I didn't have any issues with the staff at the Linq. The concierge was very friendly and helpful throughout the stay. I love the location of the place because I like to play at the Flamingo as well as Harrah's. I liked the gaming selection at the Linq. They had a $45 poker tourney which I didn't find until my last day and decided to skip it til next time. I liked the rooms at the Linq. They were roomier than they looked on youtube. The beds were comfy. I brought a mini keurig to make my coffee and they brought me some free k-cups. My room also had a mini frig, which was awesome for future references. I kept my creamer and baileys cool. I didn't have much luck with the gaming, but I had a good time anyways. I saw Las Vegas the Show. It was very good and I would recommend it to folks who like the shows and have not seen it yet. It is at PH and reasonably priced. We paid $89 for 6th row, so we were right there. As for the downside of the hotel and the trip..... There were only a couple things I didn't like about the hotel. My room location was bad and they said there wasn't anything available, but I could check back. I just decided to stay put. The room was on the fifth floor in the back with a view of the parking garage. I could barely tell if the sun was up or not. Also, being in the back like that, the walk from the elevator took soooo long. I literally felt like I was in the Shining when the hallway kept growing longer as I was heading for the elevator. I hate their elevators by the way. You have to swipe your card before hitting your floor's button. If you didn't get it in time, you went for a ride. The fifth floor was the first selection on the button pad, so I had to act fast. At least three times I ended up on the 16th floor trying to get back to my floor. When I was drunk, it was a little rough. The bad side of the trip was that I felt the solicitors and vagrants were out of control and way worse than the last time I was out there. Sales folks literally chasing us down the road. It was nuts. I also had a weird encounter with a bartender at Harrah's. I sat down at the bar to have a beer and play a little VP. I put in just a $10 bill and he snipped at me about playing all five bets to get a comped beer. Pissed me off. I always do. I said I was and hit a few good hands and cashed out. Got my free beer, cashed ot $15 and left him $1 for being a dick. I flew out on the red eye, so my sleepy afternoon was kind of an issue. I sat in the sportsbook waiting to head to the airport and fell asleep. I woke up to three security guards standing over top of me asking each other if I was asleep. I woke up fast. Pretty funny moment. On my way out, I caught the Linq shuttle for $8. Screw the cabbies. It's nice to know that they provide their own shuttle for that cheap. I'm not sure if they'll pick you up from the airport, but they do run once every half hour. Overall, it was a good time. I'm not sure I would stay again just because I have found so many places out there that I liked better. I wouldn't discourage anyone from the place if you get a good deal. They comped me 4 nights and just paid $112 for resort fees, so, not bad for that price. Looking forward to another trip in March!
