    Hello Vegas Peeps,
    Hubby and I are considering staying at the MGM Signature, in a one bedroom balcony suite. We're hoping for a December trip, but we are still doing the "wait and see" game. LOL

    What are you're thoughts? The rooms look amazing, I like the fact that the one bedroom balcony comes with a full kitchen(we will be driving and bringing some of our food, such as breakfast muffins, etc.).

    How is the walk from the Signature to MGM? Or to the strip? Any sneak routes from the Signature to South Point, M resort? I hate driving in Vegas, but thinking it may not be too bad, going to South Point, and M resort. (Okay, I could look at a map, I guess. LOL):biker:

    We're non smokers, so that is a big plus with us, and I love that balcony.

    Since, we are currently melting here in Phoenix,:wink2: I may sleep on the balcony, if we do decide on a December trip. LOL:eek::santa:

    Please tell me everything you can, I would really appreciate it.:D

    Thanks Again...

    I havent stayed there in several years but the few times I enjoyed it- Strip quality without the noise and smoke. Sadly the pools probably wont be open (my fav area there). I found the walk a tad tedious (when doing it 4-6 times a day)depending how often I left and came back. There are a couple different exits I believe however I only exited through the indoor path, to the back of the casino, and then to the bridge over to NYNY. Ive read theres a side exit but maybe someone else can comment on that. Ohhh,,I also liked the big bathrooms. One thing is I think the place is starting to show it wear..dont think its been updated since it was built 2006...

    I have a friend who owns one of the Signature condos and we pretty much hate it. Main reason is that it is a chore to get to and from the Signature. Walk is so long that they installed people movers like the airports. The Signature has its own valet parking and entry, mainly because its so far away from the MGM its not feasible to use the regular valet and parking. The room is very nice and has everything you need to just stay there and not leave the area. Theres also a small cafe there and a small pool area specifically for the Signature.

    Now its great if you want peace and quiet, to be away from the strip while in Vegas. My thing is if I wanted to be away from the Vegas strip, I wouldnt be in Vegas.

    Pros
    • I stayed in the entry-level room which was nice. Liked having a fridge for drinks. Decent couch which is way more comfortable then the arm chairs you get in some rooms.
    • Decent-sized bathroom with jetted tub.
    • Really quiet. There's not many rooms on each floor.
    • Depending on where you're going on the strip, you can make use of the monorail.

    Cons
    • Rooms are definitely worn/getting dated.
    • Long walk to the casino. Probably the longest of any "hotel within a hotel" on the strip. Long walk to the strip itself.
    For me personally, it was a one (trip) and done property. A little too inconvenient for me. I think I would only stay there again if I was attending a conference at MGM. Out of curiosity, did you compare prices to Vdara? You'd lose out on the balcony, but I think it edges Signature out in other areas.

    Love the Signature. Quiet, spacy, well equipped and comfy. Nice, uncrowded pools, alternatively use the MGM main pool. Didn't find the hoof to the casino too far at all, passage is all indoors and air conditioned. Around 10 minute walk to the food court, or the strip from Tower 3 (furthest)
    Even the good wife didn't mind the walk into the MGM main casino or the strip, and she's not the fleetest on foot!
    If you don't care about close casino access, I take the Signature any time!
     
    Fingers crossed the Mirage will be open!!

    If you dont like the walk to the casino you can rent a couple of scooters, seems to be the thing to do in Vegas now a day's

    Ah, this helps so much in our decision. I was afraid the walk might be really long, and I don't need that. LOL My dogs bark enough in Vegas, don't want them whining too. LOL

    Any other suggestions of "Off Strip " properties that may be a bit closer to the strip? Signature may be a bit far for us.

    I was thinking of the Platinum and Tuscany, but I haven't stayed at the Tuscany in several years. Never stayed at the Platinum.

    I think this more depends on how you want to get to the strip. If youre planning to walk and want to be "off-strip", Id recommend the Signature. While I consider the walk to be long, its still indoors with air conditioning.

    If youre driving, then you have many options. Whats the difference if the hotel is 1 block or 2 blocks away from the strip?

    They are both further from the strip...Platinum is around a block and half further off strip, Tuscany another 2 blocks down on E Flamingo.
    It all depends where you want to end up at the strip, walking down E Flamingo ends you up smack centre by Bally's. The walk from Signature down E Harmon, although slightly shorter, brings you to the Miracle Mile shops.
    If neither hotel works, try Vdara.
