I know this place gets a beat down by most folks here on the board. However, I've seen this place really start to shine. To the point, I think its time to point out why everyone may want to check it out again! 1. The casino renovations are nearly done, and this place looks great. I really feel like someone was thinking when they placed everything. It just seems to really fit. 2. Traffic flow is currently through the casino as Las Vegas Blvd is closed. However, everntually they will open up the front, but I see traffic still flowing throught the casino. Which is brilliant. The poker room and sports book are right along the traffic flow. This placement was brilliant. 3. Drink service was the best here of ANY casino I visited. It was quick and constant. I hope more of the CET properties adopt the Ipad order and waitress delivery method. Its awesome. 4. The rooms aren't horrid. IMO. I think some of that is due to the choice of what tower I stay in. But even a small spruce up is going to bring new life to them. And honestly, they aren't trying to compete with the upper end rooms. They are still a bargain property, and their rooms will still reflect that. 5. O'Sheas. The sign was up, so they are super close to opening. Can't wait for this place to be back up and running. 6. The Linq - now that we can see some of how this is going to look, The Quad is going to be in the thick of everything. It will be the lowest priced rooms in the Linq area. And I think this is going to be a draw. 7. The Wheel. I like many of you was skeptical. But now that its up with the pods on, I will admit that I'm excited. Just more reason to stay next door. 8. The staff - I met some of the nicest dealers/housekeepers/front desk people this trip. Really genuinely. And I saw a lot of pride in the casino and maintenance of it. I think that will flow through to the rooms once they are renovated. Just a few reasons I know I'll be back to the Quad time and again. I think they did things right here!
