This happens with ALL big events. Heck, our company puts on User Conferences each year and we ALWAYS get access to dozens of free suite upgrades for our executives. This is a standard part of the contracting process for any events.
I get that everyone is pissed at Larry right now, but this really isn't that big of a deal. I'm guessing that all of the ADs and other school big wigs attending the tourney are also staying in nice suites. I would also bet that all the other conference commissioners are staying in big suites for their conference tournaments. There is no optics issue here... like him or not, Larry is the head of a major college sports conference and thus get perks like this. It isn't costing anyone anything.
Nobody actually PAYS to stay in one of those mega-suites in Vegas.
