My mom passed away on October 16, 2022. She had pancreatic cancer so I was prepared for this but it still hard. My dad also passed away from cancer so I was already familiar with the process of what happens after a parent passes this time is different because my mom and I did everything together before. My mom and I were each other’s bubble during the pandemic and we were each other’s social life for a long time. It is a tough adjustment now living in a different city where I don’t know many people without the person that I spent most of my free time with. My moms last words to me were be strong you are strong I will hold on to that. My mom also wrote a goodbye letter to my brother and me. I’m not sure if my brother has read it yet but I want to say if you are going to write a goodbye letter don’t wait until you are heavily medicated and in lots of pain to do it or just don’t do it. I’m holding on to the actual memories I had with my mom the letter has been given to my brother to do wh

The linq hotel Vegas

My next few posts will be about my most recent Vegas trip which was a few weeks ago. I have been to Vegas many times and I now prefer staying off the strip at South Point. This time I went with a 21 year old so decided to stay on in the center of strip so she could have her full legal Vegas experience. As we were on a budget I was able to get us a rate of $28 per night through my total rewards account for the Linq hotel  plus $25 resort fee that most Vegas hotel have no. I was hesitant as even the regular price was at $60 per night so low for a mid strip hotel and the reviews were varied but it is a Ceasar's property and I am never in my room in Vegas so I only care about having a clean bed and shower. As soon I booked i got an e-mail with the confirmation and info about the hotel and follow up e-mails later about online check in. I had written to the hotel to ask about doing something special and the reason of the trip they obviously didn't read what I had sent them but they did respond with menu's of things I could have delivered to the room for my significant other. If they had read what I sent them they would know I wasn't going with a significant other. I was impressed though that I got an answer even if it was standard. We spent very little time in the hotel but it was great. the air quality was great usually Vegas hotels are smoky even the higher end ones this one had a really good filter and no smoke odour.  The location was great with the Linq  stores and restaurants right outside so nice to be in fresh air and caesars palace right across the street. We were able to walk to almost every location on the strip we wanted to go to as we were so central. The room was well designed it felt large felt a lot bigger than what it was. The beds were extremely comfortable. The shower has dispensors for shampoo, conditioner, body wash. Our room was clean but we were missing some things like soap in the dispenser etc. We left a note for housekeeping with the list of things it was long list we didn't expect them to provide everything we asked for but they did. The next day the free bottled water in the room and some other things weren't refilled so left a note to leave us things again and everything was left again. We didn't eat in the hotel but Guy Fieri's restaurant is there and the wake up call was him telling you to get up and go to the restaurant. There is also a cartoon character on the mirror in the room if you look closely its him not sure what kind of investment he has in this hotel. I would recommend this hotel great value for the price.  I suspect now that the construction is complete that the prices and the ratings of the The linq hotel are going to increase in the future.
