Between valet parking, a 5 story self-parking garage, and a spacious ground level parking lot, there is plenty of room for the numerous visitors to the Linq Hotel, Linq promenade shopping area, and High Roller Ferris Wheel.
With 2,256 hotel rooms, the newly remodeled Linq Hotel and Casino isn’t one of the largest hotels in Las Vegas, so there is usually enough room for those of you staying there in the resort’s 5 level parking garage located behind the hotel, (on the east side).
Access to the hotel from the parking garage isn’t as easily found as it is at other resorts, but the walk from the hotel to the garage is shorter than others I’ve experienced. You’ll reach the hotel by taking the Linq Parking Garage elevators to the first level.
The valet parking area in front of the Linq Hotel and Casino
As with most other hotels and casinos on the Las Vegas Strip, you will have to pay to park at the Linq, whether you are just stopping by to ride the observation wheel, eat a meal, or are a registered guest at the hotel.
Linq Parking Fee
Beginning in March 2017, The Linq began charging customers to both self-park and valet park, then later increased the rates.
For self-parking, you will receive a ticket when entering the parking garage. You’ll then use a self-serve kiosk to pay before leaving.
Current prices for self-parking are as follows:
0 to 1 Hour: Free
1 to 4 Hours: $7
4 to 24 Hours: $10
The Linq Parking Garage
Each additional 24 Hours: $10
Total Rewards Card members (the player’s card for the Linq and other Caesars Entertainment properties), who have reached Platinum, Diamond or Seven Stars status receive free parking.
Linq Valet Parking Fee
Fees for valet parking at the Linq are as follows:
Up to 4 Hours: $13
4 to 24 Hours: $18
Over 24 Hours: $18 for each additional day.
Other notes about the parking fees:
* For hotel guests, the valet parking fee will be automatically charged to your room.
* A guest staying at the Linq will still have to pay the full valet parking fee at any other Caesars Entertainment hotel they visit. Even on the same day.
* Hotel guests will have in-and-out privileges at the Linq, however non-hotel guests will have to pay a new valet parking fee each visit, even on the same day.
In other words, let’s say you valet park at the Linq for two hours to ride the High Roller. You’ll be charged $13 once you leave. Then let’s say you come back later in the night to eat at a restaurant on the Linq Promenade and stay another two hours. You’ll get charged another $13.
* As with the self-parking, anyone with a Total Rewards card who has reached Platinum, Diamond or Seven Stars status will receive free parking.
Directions to Linq Self Parking Garage
From the Las Vegas Strip, you’ll want to east on Flamingo Road. Right after you pass the Cromwell Hotel and Casino on your left, you’ll take the first left, on Linq Lane.
(The blue line shows you how to get to the Linq parking from the Strip. The Orange star is the entrance to the Linq Self-Parking garage, the Linq Hotel Valet Parking, and the High Roller Valet Parking area. The black star represents more Linq and High Roller self-parking)
From there, it’s just 1,000 feet to Winnick Avenue, where you’ll want to follow the signs and go left. Technically it is Krueger Drive.
Once there, it’s very easy to find your way to the Linq’s Self-Parking garage, which will be on your left.
The garage itself has five stories, and has low ceilings. This garage is not exclusively for hotel guests; anyone can use it.
Linq Hotel and Casino Valet Parking
Access to the valet parking services at the Linq Hotel (note I say “hotel.” Linq Promenade and High Roller valet parking is addressed further down below in this article), is on the back side of the resort, accessible from Linq Lane.
Self-parking for the High Roller
You’ll follow the same directions as you would for self-parking, only following the “valet signs” to the hotel’s shiny, fancy new port cochere.
Linq Promenade and High Roller Observation Wheel Parking and Valet
For all their faults, Caesars Entertainment did well by creating a plethora of parking spaces for their Linq shopping area and observation wheel.
You’ll find parking for the promenade and observation wheel behind the wheel, following some of the same directions listed above for the Linq Hotel self-parking garage.
Again, from the Strip, you’ll want to head east on Flamingo Avenue, turning left onto Linq Lane. One thousand or so feet ahead of you, you’ll see the parking lots on your right. This is self-parking.
Alternatively, you may want to drive a little further ahead, where the Linq Promenade and High Roller have a valet stand on your left.

** The 5th floor of the Linq Hotel and Casinos’ parking garage features a long running enclosed exhibit of over 250 classic cars. (There is an entrance fee).
** On March 1, 2014, the lower level of the Linq’s parking garage (it was still called “The Quad” back then, flooded, after heavy rains drenched the Las Vegas valley.
