Expert review of The Signature at MGM Grand
The sister property to the MGM Grand, the Signature took what the original hotel did best – its suites – and rolled them out in an entirely new property, spread over three huge towers which loom over the back of the original hotel. The Signature is the private, more luxe, less “Vegassy” alternative to the Grand – all the rooms are suites with their own kitchen areas, and there’s no smoking or gambling on site, just like Vdara. Best of all, although it has an off-Strip feel (in other words, it’s pretty quiet), it’s connected to MGM Grand itself through a network of travelators, meaning that you can enjoy the best of both worlds. And my favourite part? Although rack rates (and standards) are high, it often runs spectacular deals.
One block off the Strip, round the back of MGM Grand. But as I said, it’s connected to MGM Grand so you can walk to and from the Strip through the casino.
All the rooms are suites, and they’re uniformly fantastic, whichever tower they're in, and whether you go for a junior, one bedroom or two bedroom suite. All have a kitchen area, which helps off-set the room rate, and they even offer a house “cooking channel” on the TV and hampers stocked with ingredients to make “Signature” (pun intended) recipes. The towers are pretty big, meaning that although they’re not directly on the Strip if you request a high floor you can get spectacular views of the action, as well as the surrounding mountains (the one and two bedroom suites even have balconies).
Pretty quiet, thanks to the non-gaming nature of the resort – if you’re looking for a full on Vegas experience, you’ll need to hop on the travelator to MGM Grand.
There’s a gourmet delicatessen called Delights in the second of the three towers, but other than that, you’re encouraged to fend for yourself. And if you need help, there’s always the house cooking channel with step-by-step recipes (see above).
All three towers have their own private swimming pool, and if the vibe is too quiet for you in there, you can hop next door to Wet Republic, the private pool party at MGM Grand, which rules the Vegas pool scene all summer. There’s no spa on-site (head to the MGM Grand for that) but treatments can be arranged in your suite.
Excellent – the concierge will do anything for you (just as well, as there's not much to do of your own accord on property) and there’s even a check-in desk at the airport if you want to dump your luggage immediately.
A slightly older crowd than the MGM Grand clientele, and people who either want to escape the Vegas mayhem, or aren’t so bothered about a full on themed experience in their hotel room.
A daily resort fee of US$20.
