    I am not going to do a full trip report, but I do want to share some thoughts about my trip from July 1 to July 6.

    We stayed at the MGM Signature. It is a beautiful place and the rooms are as nice as any I have stayed in. Hear are some thoughts:
    • If you intend to gamble at MGM and/or use any MGM facilities, ask for Tower 1. From my room in Tower 1 to the entrance to MGM is about a quarter mile walk. This entrance is by the MGM pool and spa. It is another quarter mile to the edge of the casino. And a total of 0.59 miles to the nearest craps table. (I used a pedometer app to track this)
    • Plan on adding an additional 3 minutes if you are in tower 2 and 5 minutes if you are in tower 3.
    • The room is gorgeous with a wonderfully large bathroom. Great water pressure in the shower.
    • Ask for a turndown service. It is more than just that - they also will refresh all the towels and do a straightening of the room
    • Room service was good - we had a very nice breakfast one day
    • There is a starbucks in the lobby but the hours are limited. There are several other starbucks on the MGM property, including a 24 hour one right next to the craps tables.
    • We arranged for a cabana at MGM on July 3. There was a $600 fiord and drink minimum. We spent about $650 but, with tax , gratuity and added gratuity it came to about $900. The cabana was well worth it for us (we had 6 adults there most of the day with several other friends and relatives rotating in at various times. Our server was great. We here steps from the lazy river pool - a good location. Interestingly, not all of the cabanas were rented for the day - and this was July 3rd. Seems to me an indication that deals are to be had if you do not reserve in advance
    • The craps dealers at the MGM were wonderful. I played about 25 hours in 10 sessions over 5 days. I was impressed by how many remember my name (and betting patterns) from the day or two before.
    • If you are heading to mid strip, you can walk from the signature to Harmon and cut through Planet HO. To give you an idea, it is about a 20 minute walk to Paris this way. It is almost that long to get to the strip entrance of MGM cutting through the property.
    • If you stay at the signature (or any mgm property) you can sign for meals, drinks etc at any other property. For example, we had dinner at the Deli at New York New York and signed it to our room. This is important for points and comps purposes.

    I'll be happy to answer any questions anyone may have

    Just one question...would you stay at the Signature again, or would you prefer to stay in the MGM Grand? I have a room at MGM Grand next weekend, but need to add a second room...have been considering adding a Sig room.

    Interesting question. I would definitely stay at the Signature again if I needed to be at the MGM / Signature complex. We were there because my nephew was in a singing competition at the MGM. But I think - in general - I would rather be closer to mid strip. While I was pleasantly surprised at the MGM casino. I am not much of a fan of the other's in the area (NYNY, Trop, Excal, etc). I like Planet Ho, Cosmo, Bellagio, Paris, much better and would have liked to be closer to the Linq and all of the smaller casinos there.

    I have no idea what the MGM Rooms are like. In talking to my sister - who stayed at MGM with her husband and two teenagers the room sounded a lot smaller than ours. She complained about no place to put items on the counter next to the bathroom sinks. I also liked the fact that each Signature tower had its own pool with pool bar. It was a very relaxing, quiet place compared to the MGM pool.

    Thanks for the good info. My wife & I are staying at the Sig. next week for two nights. It will be the first trip to Vegas for both of us. She is all into her fitbit (tracks steps for exercise), so walking isn't an issue.

    I ended up staying there this past weekend for the first time and really enjoyed it. The pools are nice and I didn't find the walk that bad to the MGM casino, but I like to walk..you do feel a little removed from the strip but I would definetly stay there again

    Il will be staying at the Signature in October with some food credit $25/day. Will I be able to use my credits at any MGM property or just at MGM Grand and Signature? Are there exceptions to some restaurants in the MGM/Signature to where I can't use my food credit ?

    It seemed to me that any restaurant in any M Life Property could charge back to the room.

    Excellent! Thanks for the report.

    My wife and I will be there for four nights in August. We like to try a different property each time we go to Vegas and this place sounds quiet and relaxing.
