I will start by saying that the things that bothered me may not bother a lot of others. The convenience of several food options and an average room is what was offered at the Linq. The check in experience was very chaotic.There was no clear direction on where the line started so people were just standing around trying to figure it out. While the gentleman who checked us in was extremely nice, he gave us poor information on some local things to do. We were literally talking about what a zoo it was when we were waiting to check in. I've stayed in other Vegas casinos, and this was bar none the worst as far as getting to the check in and fighting the crowds. Unfortunately, you expect the horrendous stench of smoke, but to be hit with the smell of marijuana the moment we stepped in, then get a double dose of it while in line to check in is just gross. I was under the impression that the Linq was a step above hotel, but I was wrong. After the chaotic check in experience, the room was just average. While there were a ton of options for eating, and there is a great walk way with even more options right outside, the wait time for anything was well over an hour with just tons of people to fight through no matter what time of day during the week. This hotel was just not for me, but I'm sure there are others who wouldn't mind it at all.
