    Hi I was hoping to gauge everyone's opinion on which sportsbook do you feel is the best? Taking into account the size, comfort, food/drinks availability, atmosphere, service?

    Westgate SuperBook is my favorite since they upgraded all the screens last year, but I will give a shout for Bellagio or Aria on the Strip. Aria book is quite small, so it can be difficult to find multiple seats unless you're there early (I'm usually traveling solo, so less of an issue for me).

    I'm no sports book connoisseur but of the few I've spent any amount of time in, the Bellagio was by far the best.

    I've stopped searching out the "best". I've had great times at many different sports books but I've given up on trying to get a seat at Aria. We usually go there and get yelled at for being in the way. Bally's is small but right next to food court. Paris has horrible TVs and seating but it's not that busy and the staff is real friendly. PH is fun and rowdy if you can get a seat. Had some good times there. MGM is fun and rowdy, too. Their nearby deli is horrible. Monte Carlo has/d some comfy couches. SLS is decent with food and TV. Just don't like Caesars or Mirage. They're too "open" and large for me. Being 100 feet away from the TV doesn't work for me. I'm too distracted by all the action there and all the different TVs. Wynn is great. Venetian said there was a $100 minimum bet for the seats. I sat there anyway. (It wasn't crowded)

    That is one of the view I've never been to. Need to get there.

    Overall, I would say the Wynn. Comfy seating, good food (Zoosacrackers), lots of individual TVs, and they still use the older green and red electronic boards, which I prefer

    Depends what you want I guess. For size, TV's, and comfort I would say Aria. Wicked seats (just get there early for NFL) and ton's of TV's. However being as popular as it is it'll come with longer lines too. And I think last time I was there they had hiked up the bets to get free drink tickets.

    I've been to Monte Carlo a bunch and it's really good as well. However, from what I remember the TV's were not great, and there wasn't as many of them. If you're just going for one game (like MNF) then OK fine. But if you want it for NFL Sunday, you'll be disappointed.

    A few bad ones - NYNY (tiny, really tiny, no TV action. but is in a high traffic area so easy access) ... Luxor is dark and tucked away a little. The TV situation is bad there too, but it's big. I will give them that.
