A lot of details have been released about how Caesars will roll out The Linq project in Las Vegas. The first major piece of the renovation to the Las Vegas strip is to the Imperial Palace.
Caesars has let the license on the IP name expire and will be renovating the property as part of The Linq project. Here are some details on The Quad, which will be completely renovated by December 12.
The casino floor will expand an additional 15,000 square feet engulfing the former Imperial Palace porte cochere and a nightclub and gift shop. The first phase of casino renovations will include 35,000 square feet, including the expansion, and is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2013. The second phase will include an additional 30,000 square feet of gaming space with a centralized promenade bar featuring state-of-the-art integrated audio-visual technology. This phase is scheduled for completion in late 2013.
Here’s a video from an old guy telling you how cool The Quad is going to be along with a not-so-sizzling sizzle real.
The most sad part of this renovation for me is that Caesars is keeping the creepy dealertainers on the property. That ensures that I’ll only be visiting once to see what the changes look like.
I like change and the Imperial Palace was getting old and dirty 10 years ago. Today it’s the biggest dump of a hotel on the strip. I welcome this new change. I’m hoping for the best with The Quad, but with Caesars I’m always expecting the worst.
