Signature at MGM Grand

Well-equipped suites feature a king-size bed cloaked in luxury linens, complimentary bathrobes, room service, and a Jacuzzi tub for two.

Guide Review - Signature at MGM Grand

The Signature at MGM Grand is a secure, intimate enclave within the huge MGM Grand hotel, dining, gaming, and entertaining complex in Las Vegas.

Set apart from the main hotel and accessible via key card, accommodations within the three Signature towers provide couples with more luxury, privacy, and space than in a standard hotel room.

What may delight couples most is the huge, deep, jetted bathtub; it's big enough for two intent on having loads of good, clean fun. And the Signature doesn't scrimp on anything, from the June Jacobs shampoo, conditioner, bath gel and lotion to the king bed covered in 300-thread-count sheets.

Studios and suites at the Signature both hold a half refrigerator, stovetop, microwave, toaster, blender, and coffeemaker. If you want to watch a movie on the flatscreen TV, pack your own microwave popcorn; products in the lobby gift shop are limited, although room service is available around the clock.

You really shouldn't be watching movies or ordering room service, though; the main hotel contains an abundance of restaurants. And you can grab a drink or a snack at Delights Delicatessen, which is just off the lobby.

In the MGM Grand, restaurants range from mass (McDonald's, Nathan's) to Michelin-starred. In fact, Joël Robuchon is Vegas' only restaurant to earn 3 Michelin stars, and it's located right off the MGM casino.
