    Has anyone stayed at the MGM signature? Rates right now are about 25 less a night for a Balcony suite for me than the actual MGM. I just didn't know what it was like as far as getting to the strip and Casino... Might be some walking. Any input is appreciated.

    I'm a fan. I've stayed a dozen times booking direct or with luxury suites international. Airbnb has listings now too. You may want to compare rates. The walk is longest from Tower 3 but it is also the newest. Accommodations are comparable in all towers. Signature connects to MGM near restaurant row. The casino near KA Theater would be the closest. Less than 10 min walk. I like the tranquility that the Signature offers. It feel more relaxed there than at MGM. Plus, the oversized tubs are a huge win and I enjoy the balcony.

    vegasbound,

    I have a few questions about The Signature that I hope you can answer.

    1) Is there a separate check-in desk for The Signature from the check-in desk at MGM Grand?
    2) Does The Signature have its own taxi stand (or Uber/Lyft pickup area) or must you walk all the way into the MGM Grand?
    3) How many minutes does it take to walk to the Monorail from Tower 1? from Tower 3?

    Thanks in advance for you help.

    Yes, each tower has its own.
    Yes. (FYI, valet parking only)
    It's not a far walk to the monorail from the Signature. Only about 5 minutes. It's about a 12-15 minute walk to get from Tower 3 out to Las Vegas Blvd. so don't forget anything in your room!

    Stayed there about 2 years ago. I was upgraded to the Signature at check-in. The only negative as Snidely mentioned, is the walk form main reception/strip entrance. It was very nice and a much more mellow vibe than the rest of MGM. Another plus was the kitchenette with an actual fridge.

    Thanks for the info!

    So if I book a reservation, I will be assigned to one of the 3 towers and can check in at that tower's check-in desk. And I can instruct the Uber/Lyft/taxi driver to drop me off at a specific tower. Simple enough! :eek:

    I'm a big fan as well! I have stayed there three times, fourth coming in the fall. I've looked at other places, but this place suits my needs just fine! I took my husband there for the first time last May, he kept saying "We live here!" the entire trip. Love the giant jacuzzi tub! On my last trip we were experiencing a chilly day and I wanted to go into the hot tub by the pool but didn't feel like getting my suit on and going down there, so instead I fired up that jacuzzi tub, turned on the basketball playoff game on the tv in the bathroom, grabbed a glass of wine, and sunk into my own little heaven!

    I love that it's actually a suit, not in words alone, a living room separate from the bedroom. It's nice to get up in the morning, close the bedroom door, make some coffee, and enjoying the balcony. Enjoy!

    There is a gated entrance to the Sig from the street. Your taxi will stop at the guard shack and be instructed which tower to take you to. Each tower plays its own groovy music in the lobby.

    If you want to be close to Center Strip rather than MGM then Tower 3 is the closest. Just outside to the road and you're behind Planet Holkywood. To the right of the entrance and then down the road to the left you have Ellis Island.

    Certainly agree that this is a great place to stay. If you splurge and go with the full one bedroom v.s. the Junior one bedroom it shouldn't be a big price difference, but should be well worth the extra expense. It's a bit of a walk to get out to the strip, but for the size and luxury of the suite it's a good trade off.

    We've stayed her five times and enjoyed every stay.

    Closest tower to the casino (MGM ) is #1, tower #3 is closer to the street and the strip. I like tower 3 because on the higher floor you get a beautiful view of the strip. Yes you can request your tower.

    When I checked it to the Signature in August I was put in Tower 1. I simply asked if I could be put in Tower 1 and they said no problem. I love the Signature. The walk to the MGM I actually enjoy. It has the airport people movers and is very fast. I might try the Vdera next time but I would gladly stay at the Signature any time!

    I stayed there my 1st time in vegas...the 1 bedroom is worth every penny, the space, the bathroom, it's awesome....was nice having a full size fridge, as everyone said, the walk is the only downside.

    Totally agree with all the good comments. We just stayed at Signature Tower 1 for 6 nights last month, and it has become one of our favorite place to stay. We had a high floor end of hall balcony room facing the strip, and we had a fabulous view of City Center. They have everything you could want in a room with kitchenette, nice dining table, living area with bathroom and shower, separate bedroom with nice windows, and a nice big bathroom with huge jacuzzi tub and shower. They also have a nice fitness center and free laundromat. Everyone in the facility was outstanding. We didn't find the walk bad at all with the moving walkways. If I had any complaints it would be that parking is valet only, no self parking. Not a deal breaker, but not as convenient as the Cosmo.

    I too love staying at the Signature. We've only stayed in the studio, not the one bedroom, and I still love it. So, no full sized kitchen or separate bedroom, but still very spacious. It has a mini fridge, a two burner stove and the microwave. I absolutely love the bathroom. Very spacious and a nice deep, wide jacuzzi tub. Only downside is the walk. I don't mind the walk at all though. Easy covered climate controlled walk to MGM and Planet Hollywood is just across the street in the other direction.

    I stayed at Vdara last August for the first time for 2 nights after 2 nights at the Signature. I thought Vdara location is slightly better, mainly b/c the walk to and from there has less "dead space" like the walk to and from the Signature, especially when you're walking on Harmon Ave back to the Signature. But I preferred the rooms at the Signature and especially the bathroom, comparing the basic studio rooms in each. Vdara's bathrooms were much smaller and the tub wasn't a whirlpool tub and was much smaller.

    If we have 3 people staying would there be an issue would space in a junior suite? I thought I read it was about 500 sq feet. A King and then someone gets the pullout?

    The junior suite has windows, no balcony. It can accommodate 3 with the pull out. If you wanted privacy you can try to upgrade to the one bedroom suite. I've stayed in all 3 room types - I prefer having the access to the balcony.
