...........The pagodas are finally history: http://www.vegaschatter.com/story/2014/12/10/4432/4232/vegas-travel/Erasing+The+Roof+At+The+LINQ+Hotel#comment-block The memories i have of this place good and bad. The good: cheap rooms, CW's in Kimonos, free coupons to the Auto Display, balconies with bird poop, parking on the Strip, the rear elevators, the Strip cam. The bad: a river flowing through the parking garage, the Capri rooms, the "authentic" Luau at the,cough cough pool, the IP buffet, the front elevators. But, after the mistake of the Quad, The Linq has rebounded. Unlike the IP, where the ceiling was so even chain smokers needed a breath of fresh air, but now, having visited the property twice in 4 months, and with the over haul of the rooms, and 2 new pools (including the Vortex coming soon), and STILL with cheap rooms, they have a winner. I first stayed at Imperial Palace in the early 80's, my last time was in November 2011. So long old friend, most people hated it, some people liked it, or should i say tolerated it because the location was on point, and the rooms were fine for sleeping. I never really gambled at IP, just headed out to greener pastures until making my way back to my room after calling it a night.
