Here's another story.

Makes sense. And funny thing, I always liked the IP pool. Wasn't special, but if you could score a room on the pool deck, it was rather cool.

The only bummer is we're running out of (expletive) hole hotels on the Strip. Well, at least Treasure Island appears ready to capture that title.

+1.

I wonder how much money they wasted on branding it Quad in the first place??

At least the rooms look better than anything over in the Flamingo, and the towers look like they are getting reskined.

Running out of hellholes? Never fear, Flamingo is here!

Case in point - recent photo I took of the Flamingo's parking garage

Well thats just too much, casino or ghettos?

So the Caesars honchos spent all that time and money to rebrand the Imperial Palace as the Quad. Then they're going to spend all that time and money again to name it what they should have named it in the first place?

Room renderings are available and it looks like there will be all new furniture and furnishings, so that is good. And I presume the rooms will keep their balconies, so that is good, too. But what about the bad elevators, weird building-wide floorplan and the parking garage?

With respect to the bad elevators, weird building-wide floor plan and the parking garage one has to think that it is Caesar's Entertainment headed up by GLuv, 23 Billion Dollars in Debt. Short answer they aren't going to do jack shit. This is the Company that turned the cool looking fountains that front Paris into planters to save a few dollars on electricity/water.

I will say this though. I kind of like the floor plan. That old school Vegas floor plans where you are able to kind of lose yourself in the casino. I get that feeling at The D too with its little crevices and nook areas in the casino.

I like the new Linq casino but I'll stay elsewhere, like the Mirage right across the street.

Just got the email which looks like the remodeled rooms, I recognize the heater/ac duct in the background. Forwarded it onto Chuck in case he didn't have it for posting if he wants.

I really liked the old casino bars at the IP, like the Sake Bar that had those layouts that made you feel like you were really bunkered in. The bars weren't special but it was cool to be tucked away.

Arriving August 9 with the posse, curious as to the evolution of the Quad/Linq. 1st time back since last Fall, sounds like significant progress. I generally stay at the Flamingo ( let it go, haters, it ain't THAT bad), good central location to other casinos. Since O'sheas is back, or a facimile thereof, I will return. Does anybody know if they resurrected the old house band that played there for years? Also looking forward to some time at the D and Golden Gate, low limit craps tables are calling. Cant ignore the energy in those fine establishments. Anyone else going to be in town Aug 9-12?
