Three unique towers. Two adjoining properties. One commitment to first-class service.At The Signature at MGM Grand, guests stay in a relaxing, upscale retreat with complete access to the numerous amenities of the MGM Grand.Located on a beautifully landscaped private property adjacent to the MGM Grand, The Signature is a secluded, elegant enclave just a few steps away from the Las Vegas Strip. Each of the three gleaming towers in this gated resort has its own exclusive valet, entrance, lobby and check-in as well as a full service concierge.A high level of service is noticeable from the minute a guest pulls up to any of the three towers, and lasts throughout their departure. The parking attendants are quick to offer bottled water while doormen welcome guests into one of three distinctively decorated lobbies with a smile.The non-smoking boutique property offers a variety of luxurious one-bedroom, two-bedroom and deluxe suites, many with balconies that feature views of either the Strip or the surrounding mountains. Guests enjoy all the qualities of the finest hotels including deluxe king beds, marble and granite bathrooms with Jacuzzi-brand whirlpool tubs and bath products, high-end kitchenette appliances from Sub-Zero and Miele, ultra-thin LCD flat-screen high definition TVs, Wi-Fi internet access, in-room massages (for a fee), newspaper delivery and more.Both Tower 1 and 3 offer a state-of-the-art fitness center, while all three have heated outdoor pools. Meeting space is located off the pool area of Tower 2, and a gift shop and ATM are available in Tower 1. All three towers, as well as the MGM Grand, are accessible via indoor walkways.Those who want to dine on the property will find a delicatessen, Delights, in The Signature at MGM's Tower 2. At the entrance to Tower 1, The Lounge is the perfect place to unwind with a nightcap, while Starbucks Coffee Shop will help guests start their day with a much-needed burst of energy. An elaborate, gourmet menu featuring entrees, appetizers, desserts and a complete bar selection is available 24 hours daily for those who want to enjoy gourmet cuisine dining in-suite.With the additional dining, nightlife and entertainment options just a short, one-minute walk away at the neighboring MGM Grand, a stay at The Signature really offers the best of both worlds: luxury living and the Vegas action of a world-class hotel. It's an escape that doesn't feel like Las 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 at MGM Grand is an action-packed adventure story about Imperial Twins who are separated by an attack on their Far Eastern palace. Unlike other Cirque du Soleil shows in Vegas, this one has a distinguishable plot. The story is exciting, but what really captivates audiences is how it's told.Apart from a brief narrative at the beginning of the show, there is no talking in KÀ. Instead, the plot is conveyed through the performers' actions and an awe-inspiring stage that cost $200 million and took two years to build. In KÀ you see special effects from the silver screen come to life before your eyes. In addition, the show's talented cast includes: gymnasts, martial artists, aerialists, a baton twirler and a specialty act that performers a daring routine on a giant spinning wheel contraption.Just walking into the theater is an experience on its own. As soon as you enter, you are confronted with a postindustrial looking post and beam structure that lines both sides of the theater. Tribal warriors are perched on the structure. Don't be surprised if they suddenly jump out over the audience. The warriors are wearing equipment, allowing them to swing over the audience and back in a matter of seconds.The surrounding stage elements make you feel like you are a part of the set with the action taking place all around you. Throughout the show, the performers enter the stage from the audience. If you are sitting by the aisle you might even see a warrior appear at your side with a bow and arrow in hand, ready for combat.Instead of a traditional stage, the audience sits facing a seemingly bottomless void filled with smoke. The artists enter and exit from above, around and inside the void. They do almost everything, but walk from stage left to stage right like what you would see in any typical production. At KÀ the artists fly through the air or perform on two moving platforms that operate independently of each other and five stage lifts. The artists also perform on the post and beam structure that extends from the stage area over the audience.The ever-evolving performance space transforms into a floating barge, a beach, a snowy mountain and a violent sea in the midst of a storm, among other varied landscapes. The changing platforms mean that the performers and their orientation to the audience is always changing too. The show starts with a twin brother and sister at a celebration before their palace is attacked by evil warriors. While trying to escape, the twins get separated, and they are each forced to embark on an arduous journey to find one another and reclaim their palace.They travel through varied terrain and meet interesting characters who help them along the way. KÀ has all of the expected elaborate production elements of a Cirque du Soleil show, including acrobatics. In one scene, the sister lands in a tropical jungle where the inhabitants jump, flip and fly from swinging vines.While the twins are finding their way, the stage once again transforms into the lair of the evil ruler and his warriors. It is amazing to see the scene instantly change from a beautiful lush forest to a dark, ominous looking hideout.Ultimately, the Imperial twins prevail, and the show ends in a glorious celebration with music, dancing and fireworks. If you've ever dreamed of embarking on a fantastical adventure, then make sure to see KÀ on your next stay in Las Vegas.

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!
