    I'm giving this place a try in late August. Usually stay at the Bellagio but the Kitchen and balcony have me wanting to check it out. Yes no casino in it but the walkway to MGM does not sound bad. Anyone stay there before? would enjoy the feedback on it. Thanks so much....Dan

    I stayed there in 2009. I really liked it. The food court being so close is awesome and the selection is good. there's a mcdonalds, chicken finger place, pizza place, some sort of asian food, it's all really good and open very late. The rooms were good sized and having the kitchen was key, especially as we were there for 6 days. Leftovers saved some money. Not all rooms have balcony's, so if you want one, make sure you book a room with one.

    The walk to MGM isn't TERRIBLE, I stayed in Tower 3 which is furthest away and I never really minded. With that said ,try and get tower 1 as it's obviously closest. Also, Planet Hollywood is a pretty close walk from Tower 3 if you exit out the front door. Didn't figure that out until my last day, but I would have definitely spent more time at PH over MGM if I knew that sooner.

    Really nice rooms and you get a couple pools for only Signature people but too long a walk to get to the strip for me. Once or twice it's not bad but after 4 nights it got tiresome. Valet parking only.

    The room was great but I gambled less on that trip than any trip so far. Once I got to the room, I didn't want to tackle that walk again to get to the casino. I did enjoy the quiet of the private pools though.

    The Signature is my new home in Vegas. I was really pleased with everything about it. Granted - We stayed in Tower 1. I'm wondering if Tower 3 would be just too long of a walk for some people. But then, with that tip about it being close to PH, that's not a bad thing.

    One of the BIG pluses for me was that not only do you get to enjoy the pool area at MGM, but each of the three towers has their own pool. If you're looking for a quiet pool experience in Vegas, this is it!

    thanks for the Tip about the front door. I knew about the walkway to the MGM.

    I've stayed at the Signature once and it wasn't bad. Staying at the Signature, you're close to the monorail which can come in handy. I thought the room was fairly nice, good size room that uses the space well, fairly big bathroom, and very quiet. With that said, the walk just got tiring after a couple of days. I walk at a decent clip and I feel like to get from my room to the strip it was a good 10 to 15 minute walk. If the kitchen was a necessity for me, I'd probably choose Vdara.

    It will be our 4th time staying there in a month. We love it there. I love that it's all non smoking, and having the kitchenette in the studio. It's nice to have a place to bring back leftovers. This time we're splitting our stay between here and Vdara for the first time, so I'll have a comparison. If you are in Tower 3 it is a bit of a walk to MGM, but it's all covered and air conditioned and part of it has the people mover walk ways. It's probably closer to walk across the street to Planet Hollywood from Tower 3. The pools are nice because they don't seem to get crowded. It's probably a closer walk for the Signature guests to get to the MGM pool than for guests at MGM.

    thanks for the tip on the Vdara. Will check that out as well if the walk is too much on this trip

    No prob. I'm not really the type to stick to one casino. I like to hop up and down the strip for shows and meals, so the extra walking just meant I had to plan extra time wherever I was headed. I also didn't know about the shortcut to Planet Hollywood from Tower 3, so that could have saved me a bit of time as well.

    Oh, no I meant, it will be our 4th time staying there when we go next month. I wish we could get some VIP treatment.... as much as we love to go to Vegas, we don't gamble much, if at all. We just love all the dining options, pool time, and general people watching.

    We stayed in Tower 3 last year and really liked it. Very nice quiet room and having a kitchenette is a plus. There are also two bathrooms, which worked out great for us (husband has one and I get the spa tub one). Perfect! We didn't find the walk that bad, but we are hikers at home. We walked up the street to Planet Hollywood a couple of times, which only takes about 10 minutes. You can get into the mall by Todai. We love Todai and being that close worked out good for us. If I had one suggestion for you I would suggest getting a room that faces the strip versus the airport. It was a little noisy on the balcony. We are actually going back in December for two weeks at Signature for out 36th anniversary. Can't wait!

    Just to back up what everyone said, one of the nicest rooms I've had in Vegas but the walk will wear you out if you try to do it multiple times a day. I stayed in the room until I was ready to be gone for the rest of the day

    Liked the room and the option of a quiet pool or the MGM craziness on a weekend.

    Forget your phone,money or anything else and the "short" walk gets really old.
    I don't mind walking but I was sick of it after two days.

    Love the time at the Signature and the walk to the casino didn't bother us at all. The rooms were really nice loved having all the pools to ourselves and the gate coming in made us feel safe

    I LOVE the Signature and have stayed there twice now. Yeah, it's a bit of a walk from the strip but it's not too bad unless you're super exhausted, which may sometimes be the case. But the jacuzzi tub, microwave, refrigerator, stove, and plentiful bathroom amenities are unbeatable. I'm going to try Vdara on my next trip because I hear their quality beats the Signature - but I'm skeptical. We'll see.
