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 Nevada

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Mark,



Just want to send you a quick thank you. The place was great. I will make sure I write up a review upon our return home.

So close to the strip, clean, fresh and great views.

  • 5 of 5

Thankyou for allowing us to stay in your great apartment. It was so comforting to come home after a long day to a clean, fresh, no smoke apartment with a fantastic view.

Check in was fast and hassle free. My daughter loved the pools.

The apartment is quite large with good kitchen facilities.

The location of this apartment is fantastic. We walked to the MGM most days through the covered walkways and was only minutes to the monorail- so convenient.

Would totally recommend this apartment and would love to return someday!

Perfect apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in the apartment. It was so close to the strip and had everything we could possibly need for our 3 night stay. We also had to rearrange our booking, which was heard with an extremely understanding ear. I would highly recommend both this apartment and Mr Francis, who was very helpful and informative. I hope to be able to return soon :-)

Dec., 2016

  • 4 of 5

The place was very nice and clean. It is a stand alone building and there is no casino. It is a great place for family with under age children. It is only a 5 minutes walk to the MGM Grand and a short walk to the trip which we did daily during our stay. Some time, from MGM Grand, we took the Mono rail to the SLS and Stratosphere. The only small issue - the coffee maker does not work. Overall, we are very please with the place.

Owner's Response: Thanks Sina, glad it worked out for you and the family! Sorry about the coffee maker, but good news and info for future guests is that I've long had a blanket maintenance agreement with MGM so that IF something isn't working they can come when the guest calls without having to call me first. Rarely have to use it, but its available for everyone's convenience. Happy new year. Thanks, Mark

Large, clean well-appointed hotel/condo

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very comfortable and equipped with everything we needed, basically exactly as advertised. It was clean and well maintained, and the owner was responsive to our questions prior to arrival. The unit is in one of three towers about a 10 minute walk to the strip. We visited in December and appreciated having an indoor walkway that connects to the MGM Grand. I would definitely recommend to others visiting Vegas who might want to be close but not too close to the action.

I typically do not allow Saturday check-in or check-out on my Signature properties.

PLEASE NOTE that in order to offer an instant rate on VRBO, I utilize the prior year's average rate for weekdays and weekends. Since MGM Signature literally has hundreds of different rates throughout the year, they're affected by high demand events, and the rates change regularly, it is not possible to adjust rates for instant quotes. For guaranteed and accurate rates, please request a quote for your desired dates. Thanks for your understanding. Mark

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
