Well, that didn't take very long!
The long-time Imperial Palace was re-named (and re-done) as The Quad in December 2012. Now it will become The LINQ Hotel and Casino soon:
Imperial Palace was my first Vegas home away from home, and I stayed there quite a few times in my first few years visiting Vegas. It holds a lot of good memories for me. With these latest changes - and if Caesars Entertainment is done re-working things for awhile - maybe I'll stay there again. The photos make the rooms look very promising.
I'll need to collect all things branded "The Quad" on my next trip in three weeks before they change over again. I have quite a few items that say "Imperial Palace", in the newer earth tones and the classic blue and white that I first saw back in 1997.
Now to wait and see if I get any comps...
