I'm looking to book my hotel accommodations for the 2016 Open. For those who have been there, is the closest hotel near enough for me to walk over pushing a 4-ball and a 3-ball roller? According to google maps, El Dorado and Harrahs appear to be the closest to the Bowling Stadium.

Or should I just drive over and park?

What do you guys do?

I have never bowled there but have walked around the area a fair amount and I think they are easily close enough to walk.

Silver Lagacy, Harrah's and El Dorado are all within walking distance to the stadium. I have parked at Harrah's and walked with 6 balls before.

Past 2 years have stayed at Grand Sierra and Sands Regency. Both times I needed a car. Think we will stay at Silver Legacy this year. One of my team members should be getting us special rates for the amount of gambling he does there.

Cool, I'll only have to walk them over once. I'll rent a locker and stick them in there for both days. If I shoot well, I won't mind the walk back over to the hotel at all. smile

That is the right thing to do. What are your dates? I will be doing team on March 23rd and D/s on the the 24th.

For the record, Harrah's, Silver Legacy, Circus-Circus, and El Dorado are all about the same walk to the stadium. I have stayed at all of them

Been there a few times to bowl, we walk from the El Dorado. Stayed at Harrahs one time it was even closer. both 1-3 blocks away. Everyone will be walking with there stuff 2. Nothing to worry about.

Yep, I'm all booked at Harrahs. I was leaning towards Circus because it was cheaper but decided I'd rather have a shorter walk instead.

Great call with Harrahs. That was the one I was pushing for. Everyday the hotel gave us 2 for 1 for the buffet. I was out voted thats why were at El Dorado this year. Wish you the best of luck, bowl good and most important HAVE FUN.

Good luck to you too David. Last year was my first time at Nationals. Now that I've gotten the "oohs and ahs" out of my system, I can hopefully concentrate on bowling.
