    Have any of you guys held a fantasy draft for football or basketball in Vegas? If so, which hotels did you hold it at? Do any of the hotels rent out a suite for a few hours or convention room?

    I haven't, but that sounds like a ton of fun. Perhaps something like the Bellagio Chairman Suite or Aria's Executive Hospitality would fit the bill.

    Depends on you budget..Came across this on another website..Just some general info..
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Here are a few options when you’re looking to make Vegas your home away from home for your fantasy football draft.

    Bars

    Who doesn’t like to eat and drink while sifting through piles of fantasy research?

    The PBR Bar at Planet Hollywood and Rockhouse at The Venetian are both offering fantasy football draft party packages. Both bars have plenty of TV’s and throughout August and before the football season officially gets underway on Thursday, Sept. 10, PBR Rock Bar and Rockhouse are hosting fantasy football draft parties for groups of eight to 16 people.

    League parties will enjoy free Wi-Fi, a take-away draft board with player name stickers included for those who like to draft old-school, and plenty of beer and food specials. They’ll also have $25 Coors beer buckets (six beers), $35 100-ounce Coors beer towers and $7 appetizers.

    Hotel Parties

    There are a handful of hotels that offer football draft packages but having a party at The D will also give you access to some excellent gambling and a party atmosphere after the draft.

    The D now features 11,000 square feet of meeting space. The hotel’s new party room renovations are an ideal spot to throw the perfect sports gathering.

    Enjoy the D’s all new “Man Cave” rooms, featuring plush leather couches, beer-pong tables, big screen TVs and the fastest Wi-Fi technology in Downtown Vegas. This makes it perfect for updating social media or checking picks online. Each room includes private cocktail services and an assortment of customizable menu options for larger groups.

    Private Suites

    One of the most efficient ways to have a fantasy football draft in Vegas is to throw your own. There are plenty of suites on the Vegas Strip but the basic hotel room at The Palazzo is a suite which comes with a small dining area and an L shaped couch to spread out and relax and make picks. Wi-Fi is included in your resort fee should you need to connect with the outside world. This gives you the space you want at a price you can afford.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'd say the size of your league matters also 8 may be doable at a room suite like the Rio ($20 trick to housekeeping for some folding chairs) for cheap or have everyone chip in for a Cosmo room with bar and living room which is bigger $$$$..Commish stays the night of course!

    Cheapest option I can think of would be the back bar at the Gold Coast and put a couple tables together...Good luck!

    Did it in an executive suite at Harrah's. I believe there were 8 of us, and if fit the bill nicely. Doing it again next weekend, but but in a 2 bedroom suite at the Cosmopolitan. I'm sure this years will be insane. Looking very forward to it.

    Would also be interested in hearing from VMB member's experiences on where they've conduced fantasy drafts in Vegas.

    Having a fantasy draft in Vegas is on my bucket list. It combines two of my favorite activities into one.

    I'm working on my fantasy baseball league (been in place for almost 20 years!) members to have a combo March Madness/Fantasy Baseball draft in 2016. Wish me luck.

    The Executive Hospitality Suite at Aria would be great for this, if you can get a decent rate (it's ~$500 a night at full rack rate).

    It's 2,000 SF, and has its own conference room that seats 12.

    It has a bedroom, so if you took it for a night, you'd have to decide who gets to stay in it, although the time I stayed there, they were taking out 3 or 4 rollaways when I checked in.

    We had a 1,600 sq foot suite booked at the flamingo for about $300 for a Saturday before we decided on doing it at Cosmo. We thought that was a very descent price. We were going to have the person who stayed there that night pay half, then split the balance between the the rest of us.

    Wow thanks guys for the great advice. I might just book a suite. I know many hotels only let 2 computers log into their WiFi per room. If I book a suite will it be the same restrictions. I know many of us will want to be on WiFi for the draft.

    The mansion has a board room that seats about 30 plus TVs and projector setup etc.

    Would be ideal for something like this.

    We had no such restriction at Harrah's. Hopefully that's not an issue at Cosmo.

    If you're in Vegas i would do the conf room. Probably comes with everything you'll need. We hired a couple of girls from the ballet to do our draft board and drinks. Good times. Worth the coin.

    You could almost certainly do it for free in a sports book that has wi-fi.

    Aria sports book (for example) had plenty of space for at least a group of 12 people to sit last Saturday afternoon, a waitress for drink service, and free "guest" wi-fi. Same deal with the Mirage book, and they were doing free drink tickets for a $10 bet.

    I have not done one, but had looked at possibly doing a hospitality suite at mirage. May work depending on the size of your group.
