The Signature has no casino, so there’s no ding-ding-ding of the slot machines driving you mad. In fact, everything in this three-tower, all-suite hotel is designed to soothe, from the smoke-free policy to the earth-toned rooms, the lush floral arrangements to the sanctuary-like lobby. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of the outside world, including some overlooking the Mojave Desert. Some also have petite step-out balconies (a rarity in Vegas) with views of the Strip or the mountains. Subtle and sophisticated, the suites don’t skimp on luxury with high-thread-count sheets, cushy carpeting and designer kitchen appliances. Even the smallest studios are generously sized, with a sleeping area partly separated from the lounge by an opaque panel. Each of the Signature’s trio of high-rise towers features a private heated pool with cabanas and cocktail service. Head next door to the much more crowded (but also fun) MGM Grand resort pool complex, with its lazy river ride and sizzling Wet Republic pool club (open seasonally). Back at the Signature, the takeout deli, coffee shop and bar will keep you from starving or getting too thirsty. But for superstar chefs, a bevy of specialty bars (from whiskey to wine and craft beer), live shows such as Cirque du Soleil’s Ká and the chic nightclub Hakkasan, you’ll have to walk next door to the MGM Grand. Book ahead for a Zen hot stone massage or citrus-salt body scrub at the tranquil Asian-inspired spa.
In the Area
Toward the southern end of the Strip, the MGM Grand is a perfect home base for exploring Las Vegas Boulevard on foot or via the monorail. Traipse north to the ersatz Eiffel Tower at the Paris Las Vegas casino, then cross Flamingo Boulevard for a stroll down the LINQ, the Strip’s newest shopping, dining and entertainment complex. Towering over it is the world’s tallest observation wheel, High Roller; a nighttime ride gives the best neon light views. After dark, make reservations for the star chef fare at Aria followed by Cirque de Soleil’s Zarkana or drinks at the bi-level behemoth Haze nightclub. For a little retro fun, take the short taxi ride to the Pinball Hall of Fame, the world’s largest collection of machines, or head to the Neon Boneyard, the final resting place of the city’s glittering signs. Have a need for speed? Suit up and put the pedal to the metal at the Richard Petty Driving Experience, where you can drive yourself or ride along with an expert.
How to Get There
Very fancy/luxurious feel to the room. Spacious, clean, and the reason I stayed here was for the HUGE Jacuzzi bathtub that I spend hours in. A little far off the strip but worth it if you get a good price.
Really enjoyed staying in such clean and quiet hotel. We came as couples but definitely coming back with our kids. Everyone is so friendly. The staff guided us since we got there with great recommendations for lunch and dinner.
I have stayed at the signature several times over the years. The property opened up in 2006 and was a magnificent place at the time. There are three towers separated by ownership and hotel occupants. Tower 2 is in the middle and hosts the hotel entrance and reception. There are three room options. The single room which is like a studio hotel room and the basic accommodations. The one bedroom suite has two full bathrooms and a sleeper sofa along with a full kitchen. They have wised up and now offer the kitchen amenities at check in. I'm guessing too much was broken or went missing providing a full kitchen. The one bedroom suite and single room are always adjoining so you can get a two bedroom suite by connecting these rooms and using the larger double outer door. This time I got a one bedroom suite and paid extra (true) to get a higher floor. There are 38 floors and I was on 36 but facing the airport. I love airplanes but in Vegas you prefer to face the strip which is massive these days. Never the less, the view was good.
Generally speaking, the wow factor of 2006 is no longer there. The rooms are very nice and well appointed but the room I had looked tired and had several maintenance issues such as closets and cabinets not closing properly and the TV in bedroom not retracting. I was using the desk for work and the TV was in the way but I made it work.
Compared to other properties in Vegas, the Signature is in need of some upgrades to keep up. The proximity to MGM requires a healthy walk down a hallway to the main walkway at MGM. The security door which made the original appeal is mostly left open so the room key is mostly needed at night.
If you have a car or use taxis then the walk is not an issue as you won't experience it. Everything was good at the hotel but value for money for the outdated amenities left some distaste. Next in Vegas I'll have to shop around and even the MGM itself has good suites to chose from without being out of the way.
