How do we request Tower 1 ? Also, what transportation is offered from the airport to the hotel ? Where do you check in when you get here ?
Not sure how to request tower 1. Unless you can email the hotel. I wish we'd asked for a balcony although the suite we have is lovely.
We just jumped in a taxi from the airport. Cost about $25. When you get to the gate in taxi they look you up, tell you which tower and we checked in at the reception. Hope this helps.
I think you've got your answers, I'll add my 2-bits:
How do we request Tower 1 ?
- either check with the owners when booking (we went through signaturerentalsbyowner and were able to email and phone a contact there).
Also, what transportation is offered from the airport to the hotel ?
- people have covered this pretty well already. My experience: I travel a fair bit, rented cars, used taxis, and now Uber. My recommendation is UBER by a long shot - great service without hassles of rental (gas, parking, directions, etc), lower cost than taxi, and nicer drivers (download the app, it's easy to use). At McCarron Airport ask Info desk for directions to the Uber pick up area - go across to the parkade area above the rental cars.
Where do you check in when you get here ?
- Check in is a breeze, so nice compared to the strip hotels. Just go into the lobby of your tower and the check-in desk is right there. NOTE: Be sure to note the check-in desk hours of operation, they're not 24HRS.
We requested at time of booking and requested again at check in. Obviously taxis and Uber are good choices to and from airport. Taxi one way was about $12-$13. No MGM shuttle service available.
If you call Signature they may accommodate you. Cabs are fast and cheap. Should be around $15.00 to $18.00. Before you enter the property there is a security check point. They will check I.D. and instruct you to what tower to check in at. Usually that is Tower 2.
Transportation can be cheaper if you use Uber pool. I paid less than $12. You have to follow the instructions on the app to arrive to the correct pick up location at the airport.
As far as transportation to and from, I suggest Uber or a cab. Both are easy and affordable. When I landed there was a special offer if for Lyft, but you had to be a first time user.
Check-in is in the lobby of each tower, so whatever tower you end up in, once you enter the lobby you'll see where you need to be.
As far as requesting a specific tower, I would suggest booking directly with the Signature. I booked through a second-party and while it worked out fine, I had less flexibility than my friends who booked direct. And to be fully transparent, this last suggestion is just a guess based on my second-party booking.
You can call ahead to make a request - if they're not too full, they'll accommodate. You can get a Taxi, or Uber, or Lyft - any of those will work, you're looking at about $25. The taxi will know exactly where to take you, but just in case, the entry is on Harmon between Las Vegas Blvd and Koval - right next to the new golf range. Hope that helps!
