Check out a photo of The Signature at MGM Grand. Take a good, long, hard gander at it. This is what a sophisticated Vegas getaway looks like.Soaring 38 stories high, these three graceful towers stand like giant gold exclamation marks near the massive 5,044-room MGM Grand.However, The Signature isn't the kind of place that lingers in the shadow of a megaresort. Showcasing its own bold style, it offers a vacation experience to be envied.Of course, if you stay in any of The Signature's three identical towers, you'll have access to all of the nonstop excitement and entertainment at MGM Grand...just with a little breathing room.It typically takes less than 10 minutes to walk from the farthest Signature tower to MGM Grand. The towers are all linked together and connected to the mega resort via moving walkways.But we digress...let's get back to what can you expect while at The Signature.It's a nongaming, nonsmoking, all-suite resort. That means there'll be no noisy slot machines and no clouds of smoke hovering about. And the staff will bend over backwards to assist you.The accommodations are condo-style with either one or two bedrooms and small kitchens. Most of the suites offer private balconies. You'll have incredible views of either the Las Vegas Strip or the surrounding valley (and from some suites you can actually watch the planes take off and land at McCarran International Airport).Each tower has its own heated outdoor pool -- and as a guest of The Signature, you can swim at the Grand Pool too. You'll find a gift shop, a Starbucks and The Lounge, a swanky place to enjoy a glass of wine or a cocktail, in the first tower. The first and third towers contain fitness centers. The second tower is home to a deli called Delights that serves a lot more than sandwiches (you can get a good skillet scramble for breakfast or one of several different pastas for dinner).Then again, The Signature boasts such an incredible in-suite dining menu, you may not want to go out to eat. Available around the clock, it features items for breakfast, lunch and dinner, appetizers, snacks and desserts as well as bar selections. You can even request a box of handmade chocolate truffles or an artisan cheese spread be delivered.And, as mentioned earlier, anything that The Signature doesn't have, MGM Grand does. With the additional dining, entertainment, nightlife and shopping opportunities just a short stroll away, The Signature offers the best of two worlds: luxurious accommodations fit for a VIP combined with all the action of Sin City. This a place to stay that doesn't feel like Vegas, except when you want it to.

The Signature MGM tower 3 was best choice we could have made!
PostedFebruary 14, 2013
The Signature MGM is off the main strip a block or so. We're not gamblers, smokers or into nightclubbing, so we were looking for smoke-free and quiet. We went primarily to see the themed hotels and see as many of the shows as we could afford. We're fairly atheletic for our age, so walking the extra distance to tower 3 (quietest, but farthest from the MGM on the main strip) was okay for us. Room was nice and appeared clean. However, there was leftover ice cream with a spoon in it in the freezer and someone's jeans left in one of the drawers. The jacuzzi gave a nice "soak", but the jets didn't work. That said, we still had a wonderful stay and would definitely stay at the Signature MGM again if we ever came to Vegas again. Having the full kitchen saved us a lot of meal costs. We went to the CVS pharmacy on the strip the first day we arrived & were able to get eggs, bagels, butter , fruit and a few other "grocery" items to allow us to handle breakfasts & evening sandwiches. For some, the meal costs in restaurants would be a prohibitive factor for them deciding to come to Vegas or not, so this is a definite PLUS in having the full kitchen. We paid extra for the balcony which ended up being wasted due to the cold/windy weather, but in warmer weather, it would have been great. Would be nice if the balcony had a chair or two. Maybe they do that in the summer??? Must say, that the casino was a LOT LESS SMOKEY than we expected (thanks for the extra ventalation!). Also, the shows we saw (KA and David Copperfield) were conveniently located right in the MGM out on the strip, so we didn't even need to wear a coat or go out in the weather to get to/from the shows. We really recommend the Signature (just hoping they can encourage housekeeping to look a little closer into freezer & drawers. Aside from those two items, the room was very clean and appealing.

"KÀ" by Cirque du Soleil is a saga that follows the adventures of a brother and sister twin duo that becomes separated during a siege of their Far Eastern palace by evil warriors.Except for an opening comment by an announcer setting up the story, there is no dialogue in the 90-minute production, rather the story is told through expressive and extensive choreography enacted by the production's 80-member cast.No expense was spared when $165 million was insightfully poured into creating the spectacular theater and tremendous show. And while the entire 1,950-seat theater is encompassed in aspects of the brilliantly detailed and highly technological set, it is the performers who truly bring the multi-faceted performance space to life. Don't believe us? Sit in the first several rows and be prepared for performers to fly over your seats! Or, if you sit farther back, you will feel the rhythm of the overhead drums as they are played during some of the show's acts.Rather than a conventional stage, "KÀ" is performed on two massive, mobile platforms in addition to five other smaller lifts and platforms all of which appear to be floating through a bottomless space. Through the use of digital projections, the different scenes transform the multi-way platforms into a mountain, a beach, a palace or a battleground as well as host yet another large prop -- the wheel of death. There are many memorable technological moments in the production: an underwater scene, a glider flight over the audience and spectacular fireworks, among many other exciting acts.And while the floating stages provide a magnificent space, the spectacle becomes even more brilliant when adorned with the acrobatic expertise of the show's cast. And while every Cirque show is defined by the incredible feats achieved by the production's myriad of performers, the cast of "KÀ" performs some of the most spectacular stunts of all the Cirque productions.But while the show enthralls the audience with daring stunts, magical musical and lighting collaborations, and technological marvels, some of its greatest moments are the quiet ones, such as when the audience observes the shadow puppets created by human hands and campfire light or the passionate romance between the imperial prince and the daughter of one his captors.By embracing all aspects of the production's vivid storyline through the use of a dedicated cast as well as with dramatic and extremely advanced technology, not only does "KÀ" find a way to resonate in some way with each member of the audience, but the show also achieves the epitome a masterful production.

This production was one of the two best I've ever seen live.
PostedFebruary 13, 2013
KÀ Cirque du Soleil was one of the two best productions I've ever seen live. Set design, use of stage and arena space for audience engagement was great, and the cast was incredible! I've already encouraged friends from my area who may be visiting Vegas soon to book their tickets early. Thanks, it was a great evening of entertainment.

Luggage drop-off?

I do not travel very often so I don't know how the check-in process will go. My flight gets in at 11:40am on a Monday. I have arranged shuttle service from the airport to the Strip. Can I go to the Signature and check in and leave my luggage there, even if it's not official check-in time yet? Likewise, on Friday, I assume check-out is at 11am, but my flight home isn't until 4pm. Can I leave my luggage at The Signature until I go to the airport?
I can't answer the part about leaving luggage at the hotel if you get there before check-in time (we traveled with just a small backpack each), but the Signature does have a check-in desk in Terminal 1. We checked in, got our room keys, and were able to go direct to the room when we arrived at the hotel. If you're allowed to check-in at the airport like we did, my assumption is that by the time you got to your room, you'd be able to leave your luggage in the room rather than at the desk. It's worth a phone call before you go. Have fun!
