Just booked The Orleans for March 17th-20th. Anyone have experience with March Madness there?
They usually open up the main ballroom and put some betting stations there along with food and beverage service.
You also have a couple other options...one is the large lounge behind the front bar (my favorite spot) with comfortable chairs, a good location and good sight lines. They also have an Irish pub type restaurant with lots of TV's and seating. That place used to have its own menu, but now serve food from Fudruckers which is OK if you want that.
You should be OK by March, but a couple restaurants are being renovated right now. You still have the food court, Big Al's seafood (good for a lunch of a salad and clam chowder) and TGIF's as well as the buffet and café.
I wouldn't recommend sitting in the sportsbook area as it is uncomfortable, very smoky and the majority of people there are over 80 betting on horses.
You can definitely have a good time at the Orleans just get your wagers in early as in the day before.
Thanks for the info.
Did you get a good deal? Do you gamble there a lot? My crew is always on the lookout good deals. Staying right on the strip is so overpriced, and we would rather use our money for bets. i'm not trying to be nosey or anything, just curious how cheaply you can stay at Orleans. We've wandered over there a few times, and it seems like a decent place.
To be honest I went to a Temptations concert there last year a played a little before and after, no more than 2 hours tops. I got an offer a few weeks ago for 2 free nights and I am paying $168.00 for the 3rd. This will be my first time staying there. Make sure you have a bconnected account.
I was at Orleans for the same concert also. Actually met Leon Spinks afterwards too! Orleans is a great location for MM. Sports book is open 24 hours a day too!
Yup its a good option for exactly the things you mentioned. Low table limits, cheap drinks when you are paying, liquor store on property with very good pricing, Irish Pub has Guiness. My buddies and myself are small time playing $5 table games we all get and use Bconnected comp cards and we get free room offers for Sunday -Thursday throughout the year. Nothing says you cant make your sports wager at Orleans then head over to Westgate or another super sports book to hang out and watch the action.
