REVIEW: Signature at MGM Grand, Las Vegas

The Signature towers are part of the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas. They operate separately – they have their own gym, check-in etc, but are connected to the main hotel. There are often good deals to be had on the Signature, although you need to be able to ok with walking if you choose to stay there. I booked through Amex Platinum and so received breakfast and a room credit too.

I picked it as most of the rooms are suites, you can get a pretty nice high floor if you ask, and you get credit with World of Hyatt.

When you drive up from the airport , the security guard directs you to the correct Tower. I was in Tower 2.

I arrived fairly late (11pm), and there was only one agent on duty and with two people in front of me, it took more than 20 minutes to check-in. The hotel was fairly full of drunk straight boys, who can be pretty funny as they stumble around. There was very little noise from the corridor whilst I slept.

The lift took me to my suite on the 26th floor.

The large room, with floor to ceiling windows, had a microwave, sink and fridge. There was a desk. The WiFi was fast and reliable.

There are no gaming machines in the property. You have to walk to the MGM Grand to play.

The bed was comfortable and I slept well. There were good views of the airport.

The breakfast credit offered by Amex, could be redeemed in the cafe on the ground floor. I was a single person, but the room had two credits and the hotel was happy for me to spend them both on myself. Two Breakfasts! The food was freshly prepared and tasty.

They make the food to order and bring it to the table so you can take it back to your room if you wish.

The walk to the main casino floor of the MGM is about 15 minutes. There are some moving walkways to help. You emerge at the back of the MGM Grand, near the food court and access to their pool. It is quite close to the Las Vegas Monorail terminal too. Walking to the gaming machines is about a further 5 minutes.




  1. Where exactly did you book to get breakfast and the room credit? Signature is not part of Amex FHR, at least as a US cardholder.

  2. Nice review, I have often considered staying here but have ended up opting for a room in one of the hotels on the “strip”.
    Thanks for posting, Alastair Majury.
