    Looking to come out to Vegas with 12 total people for our yearly fantasy football draft (last few weeks of August). The web is full of "deals" to have the draft at a bar or casino area but none of those blow me away. Instead of doing that I was thinking of maybe getting connecting rooms (3-4 rooms) that would also have a space big enough to have 12 guys with laptops and maybe a big tv to hook a laptop up to for a draft board.

    Obviously our budget is not a high end suite price, but splitting a few rooms up among 12 of us will help. Any ideas on what hotels have a nice big living room type area? Or do some hotels do conf. rooms that are not tucked away? Having a window or a view would greatly increase the fun factor of the draft.

    Thanks!

    Executive Hospitality Suite at Aria.

    2,000 SF, one bedroom, 1.5 baths, bar and fridge. It has an actual conference room with a 12 seat table and a big screen TV. It only has one bed, but when I stayed in it, they were wheeling out 3 rollaways, so you can sleep 4.

    Get a bunch of 2 queen rooms so you have enough beds for everybody, then split the entire cost 12 ways. Have a lottery to decide who stays in the bedroom in the suite.

    The suite should run about $400 during the week, August is a good time to do it. A room with 2 queen beds should run about $150/night if you can get a 20% discount. So that's about a grand a night total for any nights you actually use the suite.

    What would you say is the budget per night? This will help a lot.

    I would not worry about "connecting" rooms so much as getting one big suite like the Aria idea above.

    Chuck2009x has absolutely the right idea. Chip in for the big suite and split up the costs.

    If you want to save a few bucks... If you are all there for, say, 3 nights, you could all get your separate cheaper rooms and just reserve the Hospitality Suite for one night.

    While I personally really like the Aria Hospitality suggestion, there are other big-room options:
    Skyline Terrace Suite at MGM Grand
    Two BR penthouse at Aria
    Penthouse Superior Suite w/ connector at Delano
    Media Suite at Mandalay Bay (unique layout for sure; have they been updated?)
    Executive Hospitality Suite at Bellagio (impressive layout)

    The Mirage also has a Hospitality Suite that has a huge table that seats 8 plus large screen TV with easily accessable ports to plug in computers.

    We have held our draft in this suite before, have also used the Venetian. The way we do it is basicially 9 guys get and pay for a "standard" room, one guy gets a suite for the weekend, and the other 9 cover the difference in cost. While it would be cheaper to have the suite for just one night, it was too much of a pain to try to get into the suite, get it set up with food/drinks, and get everyone out the following morning on time for check out.

    Last year we rented a pool cabana and held the draft outside. Almost all the cabanas have space to hang (tape) a draft board to the fabric/vinyl side of the cabana, as well as a TV with an HDMI connection for a computer. MGM Hotels (Bellagio and Mirage at least) charge $500 for the cabana, and have no F/B min. Ventian/Pallazo was no fee for the cabana, but a $1500 min spend (which is easy to do with 10 guys drinking beer all day plus some kind of lunch.

    Have fun!

    I think the budget for 12 guys would be $1200 a night. (im guessing that everyone would be fine for $100 a night) for 3 nights. $3600 for 12 guys over 3 nights. As long as no one sleeps in a tub or on the floor.
    I have done some more research and Im thinking the Cabana idea is the best bang for your buck. Most of the cabana rentals are for all day. I mean even $1200 rental for a day is only a $100 per person for a cabana sounds like a great deal. I paid $500 for 4 of us last year and it was well worth the money just for the shade it provided.
    Thanks for your help all....it helps narrow down the research for sure1
