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
All staff is helpful and friendly. Hotel is clean. Has restaurant/coffee option. Hotel is quite quiet. Unless you get a room behind the elevator. We had an issue with the safe and security came up right away and fixed it. Rooms are spacious. We were in a 1 bedroom suite. Convenient with full kitchen and 2 bathrooms. TV in living room, bedroom and master bathroom. 2 full bathrooms is nice when you are both trying to get ready for a day/night out
This hotel is ideally located if after a busy day on The Strip you just want to take a few steps back from the hustle bustle and those casinos.
We upgraded to a room with a balcony on check in for an extra $10 a night plus tax, however, if the weather is cold as it was for us, then save your money, we didn't use the balcony the whole time we were there other than to take a few photos of the view.
The room/suite itself was a good size, very modern and clean with a large very comfy bed, large bathroom with jacuzzi bath plus seperate shower and toilet, sofa and chair and a dining table. There is a kitchen area with microwave, twin hob and you are supplied with a coffee maker with complimentary filter coffee and a toaster. No kettle or utensils or pans etc to cook with if you wanted to though, so couldn't really see the point of having a kitchen area in the first place. Oh, you get free coffee but not bottled water, two bottles of water supplied with a note attached saying basically if you dare drink it, you will be charged $9 for each bottle....come on Signature, really!!
Be prepared for some disturbance at night too, remember this city never sleeps and you can expect noisy selfish individuals returning to their rooms at all hours, shouting, banging doors etc.
All in all though, a nice hotel but we thought the tax charged per night very steep at $37 plus tax, for what?
The Signature boasts elegant, spacious, and highly functional suites. It has a very secluded and peaceful feel, partly because it is off the Strip and partly because it does not have a casino. But it is also close enough to provide convenient access to the Strip. Overall, it is a very nice option for someone seeking some peaceful seclusion without sacrificing proximity to activities on the Strip.
We have always stayed at the MGM Grand for my daughter's cheer competitions, but this year a bunch of families decided to stay at the signature. I was a little nervous staying somewhere new, but I was so pleasantly surprised. The rooms were big and clean. My older daughter slept on the pull out sofa and said it was very comfortable...which I was worried about since they don't have a 2 queen option.
My first impression upon entering my room is: “What’s that horrible smell”? Later, I realized that it was the air coming from the ventilation system. It smelled like food being cooked. I turned it off and things were much better.
The room itself is spacious like most hotel rooms on the Las Vegas strip. The basic amenities are there and everything was clean. It’s pretty quiet, although you can sometimes hear people walking in the hallways outside the room.
The staff was great and the reason I’m giving this hotel 3 stars.
Another thing that bothered me is the exorbitant resort fee. I don’t know why Signature is considered as a resort. To me, it’s just a hotel. It’s just another way to make money out of people.
Unfortunately, I can’t recommend this hotel.
