Vegas Info Help
Our team is planning on going to play in Vegas this year for the 1st time. Need info/help on the hotel rooms. We are going to book hotel/airline package where is the best place to stay decent/affordable with access to all parks. Online booking shows hotels on strip, east of strip, west of strip, downtown, north vegas, east vegas, henderson, boulder etc. Any info/help would be appreciated!

Thanks!!

It really depends on which fields you are playing. , but a good reference point is to use the Tournament Event Page. Open the Blog for the Vegas Tourney. There are a list of Hotels on the page. Again it depends on which fields you are assigned.(which won't happen for a while) But I found a good starting point.

I saw the hotel page on tourney page booking online with a flight/hotel package some are listed some are not having no idea what fields we will be at, we are playing 50 major. Just trying to get an idea on the best location to try and stay for most fields we will be playing on which I have no idea which that will be.

lb16 ... That's good advice from titanhd ... Depending on what your housing budget may be, you'll find the Strip to be more expensive than elsewhere ... In my own opinion, the best "value for location/access" are any of the hotels along the Boulder Highway ... They are convenient, in varying degrees, to more facilities than any other area ... These include Boulder Station (the Tourney Headquarters Hotel where the majority of staff stays), Arizona Charlie's, Eastside Cannery and Sam's Town ... Good luck and "Welcome to Las Vegas" ...

Goood info from Dave. A teammate a few years ago suggested AZ Charlies and I've used them ever since. They did have some issues at one time, but only credit cards are accepted now, and they have round the clock security inside and out on bikes. The two room suites are great, under $40/night, and like Dave said, most fields are within reason. If you are travelling with a lady, they may like another hotel with more pizazz.

Another Arizona Charlie's upside: They have a comprehensive, delicious and very affordable Breakfast Buffet ... Many times I've left Boulder Station and detoured through there to grab breakfast on the way to the fields! ... Just so long as the guy who does the game schedules doesn't give you a "pre-dawn" first game of the day ... [That guy would be me!] ...

For those of us who do mind cig smoke... AZ Charlie's has ALWAYS been one of the smokiest casinos in LV... this was true of both the Decatur and the Boulder Hwy locations.
I'm hopeful that this has changed. If it hasn't, it's essentially our health v their profits... WE QUIT STAYING THERE 10 YEARS AGO.
This should not be a serious discussion if this is the way it now stands.
We 'own a very large piece of the serious illness pie'... we = senior teams
Given our ages, etc.
Respect it or lose it... (OUR HEALTH).

Haven't stayed at Charlie's or Boulder Station. Stayed at Eastside Cannery and Sam's Town several times each. Both are very good. Rather prefer Sam's because of the large open "canyon area with the waterfall". The light and fountain shows at that same location are an added plus.

Most casinos have smoke, but us non gamblers might inhale some second hand smoke on the way to restaurants, front desks, or heading outside.

Great site seeing if you stay on Fremont street! Quite the spectacle with the street performers.

Uh, I would suggest you opt for Boulder Station, Eastside Cannery or Sam's Town over Az. Charlie's. Check Trip Adviser reviews. If you are with teammates looking for a cheap place, maybe it might work for you. I guess the food is ok.

Call the Orleans hotel and ask for the person in charge of group rates. Tell her you are a softball team and most times they will give you a great group rate.

Orleans rooms are over-sized and it's off the strip but freeway close.
