    Last year my Fantasy Football League had its 20th draft in an Aria Executive Hospitality Suite. It was perfect for the event, our commish and his fiancé paid & stayed in the room and the rest of us stayed at various hotels on the strip.

    This year, I am pushing to have the draft in LV again, but this time, our commish won't pay for the room as his $ is being spent on their wedding : ) I am making 3 trips to LV in 4 weeks, so unless I win a lot . . . I won't pay for that room myself. : )

    My question . . . Is there a cheaper option that will allow more guys to stay in the room and still have an 8-10 person table to complete the draft? If we got the same Aria executive hospitality suite - is would cost over $1000 for 2 nights and only 1 bed. We would all have to split the cost. Then the other 7-9 of us would still have to pay $200-$400 each to have a place to stay for those 2 nights.

    Does Luxor/Excalibur/etc have the same type of room at a lower cost?

    Thank you in advance.

    I was just looking online @Vdara and they had a room that had a lot of seating in it. I was getting a price of $443.00 for a 2 bedroom hospitality suite thru M-life website (tier discount). I also was looking at Hotel 32 @ Monte Carlo and they had some stuff priced pretty good for a large group.

    IMHO, the Aria Hospitality Suite(weekdays in August about $350/nt) is the best for this type of gathering (Vdara HS is nice too). We did the same thing last year and Aria did bring up 3 rollaways at no cost (Usually $30/nt).

    Since it sounds like budget is a concern, I would recommend staying at The D downtown. Between the sectional and the table, their should be enough room for everyone to sit. I know some people are not fond of Fremont Street....but I think it would be a fun location for everyone involved (and be a lot cheaper than other options discussed)

    I think the largest room Luxor has is the Tower Premier Suite, and that's only 1050 sqft, 1 bed. But depending on the date might only be $150.

    How about checking the 2 bedroom suites at Vdara, Elara and Trump. Those might be cheaper since they aren't casino hotels. I still don't think you will really find anything under $350-400 a night anywhere. Also nice because they all have kitchens for any food and drink you may want to have.

    I would also consider a 1 bedroom suite at any of those places, they are large enough to hold your draft without feeling really cramped, but won't bust your budget like a 2 bedroom would. But I don't know where else you'd find an executive type table though...


    Also Mandalay Bay the X3 suite has 1 king and 2 queens. MGM Skyline Marquee suite, Mirage 2 bedroom tower suite...but those are gonna be really expensive

    What if you guys just got regular rooms and did the draft at a bar / restaurant? Perhaps Twin Peaks or Buffalo Wild Wings? The money saved on rooms would give you a lot to spend on food and drinks.

    I'd also consider the Marquee Suite at MGM.

    Could you hold your draft on Thursday night or Sunday afternoon? You could save a ton by not having it on a Friday or Saturday.

    4 of the 10 of us in our league were drafting in Vegas for the last 3 years, so we were able to just use a travel router (due to being charged per device instead of per room) within one of our rooms and draft there. (We do an online draft and the other 6 from the league were drafting from their homes.)

    I highly highly highly recommend NOT drafting in a bar or restaurant if you are doing an online draft. (If you are doing an offline draft, it doesn't matter.) We were going to draft in a bar/restaurant location but ran into nothing but problems with places committing to having wifi, then it was non-existent or just a shitty signal once we got there. Vegas is still not caught up on the times with having free and fast wifi anywhere you go.

    8-10 people for a draft....you could easily do that at a Mirage Tower 1 Bedroom Suite (cheaper option than Vdara or Aria).

    It's basically one giant space with a dining table that seats four, a large L Shaped couch and a bar with two stools.

    You could also look at booking a conference room. Most places will have small rooms available where they can set up a table and chairs for you, hook up internet for the room, set you up with a projector, white board, etc and even get food and drink brought in (some places include some food and drink based on number of people).

    Or if staying at Aria $500 would rent you a cabana by the pool for a day on the weekend during summer. That will come with food, drink, wifi, small table and seat 8 people.

    Or for $500 if you wanted something different that'd get you a stretch hummer limo for about 4 hours and could just have them drive you around and up and down The Strip while you work out your picks.

    H Suite in The Hotel down at Mandalay?

    Prices for August are really reasonable with $400/night being the maximum and you can get $200 on a Saturday night on the 23rd.
