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.

Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is awesome! The bed/pillows are sooo comfortable, the rooms are nice and clean, and the bathroom is so spacious. We used the Jacuzzi tub every day after walking the strip.It is really nice that each tower has their own pool and hot tub, but still have use of any pool and MGM pools. Compared to the hotels on the strip, it is well worth the price as it has all the comforts of home (and then some--- the tub!!) We are a repeat renter from Mark. He is always quick to answer any questions and provides all the information needed for an enjoyable stay. Thank you Mark.

Owner's Response: Hi Bob, glad you had a great first trip to Vegas! I remember my first one vividly, stayed at The Dunes in 1987. A little safer crossing Flamingo and the Strip now than it was then... Thanks again for leaving a review, much appreciated! Mark

Wonderful condo - enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

The listing description was accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner was awesome and great to work with - communications were excellent, and the owner customer service was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lovely property and would recommend this property to friends and relatives. We were very pleased to find this property just off of the Vegas strip at a great value! Thank you for a wonderful get away mini vacation!

Fantastic Alternative to Staying at a Casino.

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this unit from Mark in March of 2016 and truly enjoyed the experience. This is the third year in a row we came out to Las Vegas in March to attend an event and the first time we did not stay in a Casino. We had a much better time this year because we did not have to deal with all chaos and crowds that you normally get staying in a casino. The property itself was in great condition and had plenty and room for the four of us. We felt much more comfortable and had all same things available to us as if we were staying at the MGM if we wanted them. Mark was very accommodating and easy to work with especially with letting us stay an extra half day on the last day for a small fee since we did not fly out until late. My family hopes to rent from Mark again in the future and I would highly recommend renting off of him if you are planning on making a trip to Las Vegas in the future.

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

I typically do not utilize 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 for your desired dates. Thanks for your understanding. Mark
