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 & 397813) 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 in tower 3, that was a short sale. I've had good experience renting it through VRBO, and purchased a 15th floor strip side unit in tower 3 in January 2012, and then this 23rd floor strip side unit in tower in June 2012.

What makes this studio unique

The view from the 23rd floor of tower 1 is fantastic! There is a nice view of City Center (Mandarin & Aria), Monte Carlo and NY NY. The climate controlled walkway with moving sidewalks will have you at the MGM Convention Center/Pool Entrance and Studio Walk is just a couple minutes. The MGM monorail stop is just around the corner as well.

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 daily 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 1 pool, and are nice in the colder months.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Mark,



I just wanted to email you to let you know that we had an amazing stay! The suite was exactly as pictured. From check in to check out and everything in between was so easy and we were treated exceptionally by the staff. Everyone was so willing to help.

Relaxing, Comfortable and Quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay. It was clean, comfortable and convenient. The check-in and check-out was easy and the walk through the MGM was perfect. It was nice to be off the strip and it was quiet.

I would recommend this place and definitely would stay there again. You have access to the all the pools but the Signature 1 pool was the most enjoyable because it was nice and quiet.

Mark was great and made the process super smooth.

Great property and owner!!

  • 5 of 5

Mark's property was perfect for our time in Vegas. Far enough from the strip to have a good night's sleep but close enough to walk to. Great amenities including use of gym and pools . Mark is a very attentive owner and responds to any questions that you may have. We will be back.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Signature is a wonderful gated property off the strip. It's connected to the MGM by an indoor walkway. My mom said it took about 5 minutes to walk from tower 1, which is the closest tower to the casino. I booked this condo mainly because I got a great quote and the reviews were all good. We arrived early and I inquired about my reservations because I booked 2 different condos. Because it was still too early, they gave us key cards so we can access the pools before we were able to check in to our rooms. We were able to leave our luggage with the bellhop and they delivered it to our room. The condo is spacious. 4 of us fit very comfortably as there is a king bed and sofabed. There is a kitchenette that included 2 burners, sink, mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, blender and all the dishes and utensils you need. It was always nice to come back to the condo after walking the strip. We took advantage of the monorail since it was right in the MGM hotel near the entrance to the towers. The kids enjoyed the lazy river. I was surprised that the pools at the tower were for 21 and over only, which was ok though because the kids enjoyed the MGM pools since we can access all of them as a guest. The bathroom was so spacious! It had a shower and a huge jacuzzi tub that my daughter and I used on the first day to soak our aching feet. We truly enjoyed our stay in Mark's condo. He was very easy to work with and I had no problems booking with him. I highly recommend Mark and his condo. We would definitely return.

Excellent room at an incredible price.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just got back from a trip to Las Vegas, staying in this condo. I had spend weeks researching the best and least expensive places to stay before finding this condo on VRBO. We were very happy with the room. It was very clean, had a wonderful view, and features amenities not found in other rooms in this price range. Further, being in the MGM Signature Towers, you get all the benefits of staying at the MGM (access to the MGM's pools as well as the less crowded MGM Signature pools, proximity to the monorail, and access to the strip) without dealing with crowds of people everytime you try to get to your room, wait for a cab, check in/out, etc. Also, the MGM Signature Towers are among the closest rooms to the Miracle Mile shops of Planet Hollywood.

Overall, my wife and I were very pleased with this room, as well as the MGM Signature Towers themselves. If we ever return to Vegas, we will stay at this condo without a second thought.

Clean codo with gated entrance.

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described by Mark. Walk to mgm back pool was not too far. So here is my "report"... We arrived friday around 6pm and the front desk was busy but they got everyone taken care of in a timely manner. Valet could be a little bit of a wait but its understandable especially saturday noon when people were checking in and out. I don't mind waiting as long as I see that they care about the situation at hand, and I can tell that they did because they were running back and forth in over 100 degree

temp. Room itself was clean, carpet and linens had no visible stain. The best part of the whole experience was dealing with Mark. He was very prompt and professional with my enquiry. Eventhough he is running a "business", he was very personal as if I was asking to stay at a friends house.

My tip off the day... go to Planet Hollywood's Miracle Mile shopping experience and have lunch at the ocean bar.. $4.99 for all lunch menu...an amazing deal, you will thank me later. My wife has a lot of friends that "own" timeshares in Las Vegas but why buy when I can rent from Mark.... I will be renting again from Mark, hope he has other properties in different cities. Again, Thanks for letting us use your condo Mark.

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
