Well maintained studio with responsive owner. New TV & carpet in late 2015.
About Mark Francis
I'm live in Charlotte, NC and have enjoyed visiting Las Vegas since my first visit in 1987 (stayed at the Dunes which is approximately where the Bellagio Fountains are now!). I have 3 properties at Signature on VRBO (listings 344994 & 425161) and a beach property in Holden Beach, NC (listing 751993).
Mark Francis purchased this Studio in 2012
Why Mark Francis chose Las Vegas Strip
In 2010 I closed on a 23rd floor strip side unit, also in tower 3, that was a short sale. I've had good experience renting it through VRBO, so while the market is still under valued I purchased this strip side unit.
What makes this Studio unique
The view from the strip side of tower 3 is the best Signature offers. Because of Harmon Avenue below, there is a perfect view of the new City Center Complex, The Cosmopolitan and Planet Hollywood. To the north there are clear views of Paris, Bally's, Flamingo, Venetian, Wynn, Encore and the Stratosphere from the floor to ceiling glass. While tower 3 is the farthest from the MGM complex, it is connected by climate controlled walkway with moving sidewalks so it's only a 3-5 minute walk from the Tower 3 lobby to the MGM Studio Walk depending on your pace. In addition, being right off Harmon avenue, it is a short walk out the front gates at Signature down the street to the PH Westgate Tower where you can enter that property and be right in the Planet Hollywood miracle mile shops. Walking through there and the main Planet Hollywood casino will place you on the strip right across from Bellagio and adjacent to The Paris! Personally I use the onsite exercise room daily, and the free wireless internet for my guests is widely appreciated (there is nothing worse than having to pay $15-20 to check your e-mail!) Each of the 3 Signature towers has a pool and hot tubs. The pool in the middle (at tower 2) is heated year round at 85 degrees and gets plenty of winter time use. Guests can also use the very nice MGM pool during season at no cost. The hot tubs are operational year round, including of course the ones at the tower 3 pool, and are nice in the colder months.

Room was beautiful and view was fantastic. We really enjoyed our stay! Prices in the pool area are high and you can’t bring in outside food or drink so be prepared. (Not Marks fault of course!). We would definitely stay again!
Thanks Theresa! Glad you enjoyed it and yes that is an annoying rule about not being able to bring outside food/drink to the pools. Even the owners can't! MGM rule to ensure people buy from them. I recommend hidden airline bottles! :-) Thanks again, Mark

Would definitely come back again. Thank you!!
And thank you very much Julie for leaving a review. Glad you enjoyed it, you’re welcome back anytime! Thanks again, Mark
Nice spot but a bit dated
The Signature property is very nice but is starting to show its age. Doors are heavy and slam in the hallway, making it hard to sleep. The furnishings need to be upgraded. But, overall, it's still a nice place and right in the middle of lots of action!
Great place to stay in Vegas! Beautiful room and easy access to everything!
My 2 sisters and I were celebrating a special birthday. This condo was just perfect for us. The small kitchette allowed us to make breakfast and coffee in the morning and the pull out couch was comfortable! The jacuzzi was a surprise and very comfortable. Thank you for sharing your vacation spot!
Thanks JoAnn, good to hear you guys had a great time. Also thanks for the added private feedback on a couple suggestions, always appreciated. Come back any time! Thanks, Mark
Pros: The room and hotel were very nice. Great hospitality and view. Would definitely book here again.
Cons: Sink faucet was leaking and the shower head was loose as well. Decent walk to the strip.
Thanks Sean glad you would book again. I would like to reiterate for all guests that I have a blanket maintenance agreement with MGM for any such needs during a stay. This means that my guests can call down to the signature desk 24/7 and have any maintenance needs addressed without needing to contact me. It's a nice additional service and keeps the guest experience on par with those people who book directly through mgm's rental program. Thank you
The MGM Signature towers are part of the MGM complex. Guests can reach the main MGM property via climate controlled moving sidewalks that connect to the MGM Studio Walk near the MGM Pool, Convention Center and Monorail Station.
Guests can easily reach City Center, Cosmopolitan, Planet Hollywood and points up the strip by exiting the front of the Signature property and making a short walk down Harmon Avenue. By using the Harmon Avenue entrance of the PH Westgate Tower guests can pass through the Planet Hollywood shops and casino and exit on the strip across from Bellagio and adjacent to the Paris Casino!
Lastly, for those guests needing quick access farther up the strip, the monorail station (which is just inside the MGM Studio walk past the Signature access) provides service stops at Paris/Bally's, Flamingo/Caesars, Harrah's/Imperial Palace, LV Convention Center, Las Vegas Hilton & Sahara Blvd. A single ride is $5, and an all day pass is $12, much less than a single cab ride
