    I went last year for the first weekend of the NCAA tournament and it was so crazy on the strip. I had comped Cosmo rooms but they retailed at about 1000 for two nights (non weekend). I know that's a busy weekend as I could Hardly find a $100 min table. All the tables were packed. My question is how is the weekend before for the conference tournents and selection Sunday. Half as busy?

    I have never been the week or weekend you are suggesting, but keep in mind that Las Vegas has become somewhat the conference tournament destination on the west coast. My beloved Gonzaga Bulldogs and the West Coast Conference have their tournament at the Orleans the week you are speaking of. I believe it starts roughly on a Wednesday or Thursday and concludes on the Monday that is before Selection Sunday. The week leading up to Selection Sunday the WAC (Orleans), Mountain West (Thomas and Mack Center) and Pac 12 (MGM Grand Garden Arena) all have their tournaments there as well. For all 4 conferences I believe both the Men's and Women's tournaments are held in Las Vegas. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't think its even close to the first four days of the NCAA tournament, but you have all these schools, their fan bases (some big, some small) all arriving. I would suspect starting March 5th or so, it's pretty steady through the entire month. Let us know how it goes...and have fun!

    Conference tourney week is great. I do it every year. I highly recommend it.

    This year, I'm doing Wed 3/12 - Mon 3/17 (may stretch it to Tue 3/18).
