If you’ve never been to the Las Vegas Hilton, now called LVH, and you’re in town for March Madness, make sure you stop for a visit. Besides being one of the legendary hotels where Elvis spent a good chunk of his life, there’s also the Mike Tyson boxing history (the Frank Bruno KO from 1989).

The sportsbook is in the back of the casino, in its own gigantic world where horse racing fanatics can hide and March Madness fans won’t startle the old people playing keno.

The last time we were at the Hilton the free drink service was fantastic.

@bustedcoverage It’s off to the side. Its a giant convention room with 6 TV screens. They have a food/beer stand and a betting kiosk.

BC Facebook follower Mike S. concurred with the LVH choice.

It is without a doubt the Hilton. They setup a special deal every year for MM. They turn the theater into a sports book. They have 5 300in HD screens with the games, a satellite sports book, and food/drinks.

We also received multiple votes for Mandalay.

Other votes: Bellagio, M Resort, Imperial Palace, Venetian and Red Rock.
