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 397813 & 425161) and a beach property in Holden Beach, NC (listing 751993).

Mark Francis purchased this studio in 2010

Why Mark Francis chose Nevada

When condo/hotels began popping up in Las Vegas in 2004-2005, I was immediately interested. However, at the prices they were selling for, I was content to stay at the LV Hilton for my frequent visits! When the real estate market collapsed I began watching the market and for 18 months I researched my options closely and waited for what I felt was a market bottom. I contracted to purchase the unit in October 2009, and closed on it in April, 2010. I've subsequently purchased a second strip side unit (January 2012) on the 15th floor of tower 3 - vrbo listing #397813

What makes this studio unique

The view from the 23rd floor of tower 3 is fantastic! 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.

This is an amazing condo. It's situated a few blocks back from the strip however it is quiet and smoke free. This was the second time we rented this condo and we arrived to find it spotlessly clean, well appointed and very comfortable. I highly recommend this vacation condo.

Perfect location, great unit

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We usually stay at one of the hotels on the strip, but we are tired of the resort fees and now the parking fees. Not only did this unit not have any of those fees, it had a small kitchen area and a small living room so it was far more comfortable than the typical hotel rooms. The room was in excellent condition and the location was convenient to both MGM and the strip. Unlike the strip hotels, the Signature was quiet so once you left the MGM you were no longer surrounded by people. Mark was very responsive to our questions and we will definitely rent from him again.

Great Place to Stay!

We are a couple in our fifties and we came to town for a show. We stayed 5 nights. Our experience at Mr. Francis' condo was excellent from start to finish. The room was exactly as described in the VRBO listing. The room was spacious, clean and has a great view. The building was close enough to the strip for convenience, yet, it was far enough away to feel some escape, too. The staff was courteous and friendly and efficient. We would definitely stay again.

Clean, Convenient and Totally Worth It!

Verified Stay

This is a great option if you find that you need to stay near the MGM Grand for any reason. It was like our own smoke free gated community. While smoking was allowed outside it was great that we were able to walk the halls and the walkways and not have to travel through clouds of cigarette smoke. 4 of us shared the room and we were all extremely happy. Large bathroom with 2 sinks and plenty of drawers made it easy for 4 woman in town for a convention that had to deal with make-up and costumes. Small kitchenette area was totally awesome. We saved a lot of time and money eating in the room. We did wish we had a larger pot and bowl to aid in making dinner but we made it work with what we had. The refrigerator is an under counter job, with a freezer partition at the top it was bigger then we thought it would be. I read some complaint about sleeping on the pullout sofa, so i brought a mattress pad, i left it behind so hopefully someone else can reap the benefits of a more comfy bed. Coffee table was heavy to lift and move but we figured out that it slid well. There is no set cleaning service, but it was great that we could add what we wanted and spend what we wanted using the service menu provided. The week we were there we added service for one day mid week which worked well for us. The email we sent bounced back, but we were able to call in the morning for same day service. Property is convenient to the arena. Walk inside toward tower 1, then a couple moving walkways to the door that lets you out near the main mgm pool. Then a short walk to the arena. Also convenient to the conference center. We walked to tower 1. Then if you walk outside from the lobby, a little to the left is a walkway to the conference center. There is a door that you need your room key for when returning to the signature. There is another door along the path on the left that leads you to the parking lot between the conference center and the golf place. You can get into the conference center using your room key. This is a lot of info but I wanted to share what worked for us. Bottom line. Condo was clean, convenient and totally worth it! I'd stay hear again and encourage my friends to do so as well. Thank you Mark!

We had 4 nights in Signature Tower # 3 and really felt like we got a great value for the space. The staff was very professional and helpful. The room was very clean and we really enjoyed being a short walk away from the strip so we could actually enjoy a quiet view. I would recommend this unit and hope to use it again!

Strip side views! No resort fee! Extremely helpful owner! Spotlessly clean!

  • 5 of 5

Wow - what a night time view! Room extremely clean, plenty of cupboard space, and well stocked kitchen, king bed was ultra comfortable. From the moment of first enquiry, which was quickly responded to, the owner of this property was friendly and helpful. No resort fee was a bonus. I would 100% recommend this room.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : McCarran International at 3 Miles Nearest Point of Interest : Planet Hollywood & Miracle Mile Shops Nearest Point of Interest : Cosmopolitan Nearest Point of Interest : MGM City Center Complex Nearest Point of Interest : Paris Hotel/Casino Nearest Point of Interest : Bellagio Nearest Point of Interest : MGM Hotel/Casino Nearest Point of Interest : Monte Carlo Hotel/Casino Nearest Point of Interest : New York New York Nearest Point of Interest : Bally's Hotel/Casino

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
