In honor of the upcoming 2009 Men’s and Women’s WAC Basketball Tournament I am going to do a brief over-view of each team hotel. While at the women’s soccer tournament this past fall I had the opportunity to tour the Eldorado Casino and Resort and thought I would share some photos and information on the hotel.
