After More Than A Decade, MGM Will Ditch Hyatt For Marriott

MGM's Bellagio, February 2022

MGM has partnered with Hyatt for more than a decade.

That relationship will end on 9/30 and elite tier matching is no longer available. I enjoyed using my Hyatt status for waived resort fees and other benefits at MGM last year.

For stays with a checkout date of 9/30 or earlier, you will still earn Hyatt points and benefits. Stays booked for travel after that date will be honored, but won’t earn Hyatt points and benefits. Many people used cheap Las Vegas hotels as an inexpensive way to qualify for Hyatt Globalist status.

Starting in October, MGM will partner with Marriott.

MGM members will be able to match to Marriott elite status and Marriott elite members will be able to match to MGM status.

You will be able to earn and redeem Marriott points at 17 MGM hotels.

Four MGM hotels will be affiliated with existing Marriott collection brands:

  • Bellagio Resort & Casino – The Luxury Collection
  • ARIA Resort & Casino – Autograph Collection
  • Park MGM Las Vegas – Tribute Portfolio
  • The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas – Autograph Collection

Eight MGM Resorts destinations in Las Vegas will join the new Marriott MGM Collection:

  • Vdara Hotel & Spa at ARIA Las Vegas
  • MGM Grand Hotel & Casino
  • NoMad Las Vegas
  • The Signature at MGM Grand
  • Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino
  • New York-New York Hotel & Casino
  • Luxor Hotel & Casino
  • Excalibur Hotel & Casino

Five MGM Resorts destinations in other U.S. locations will also join the new MGM Collection:

  • Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa (Atlantic City, New Jersey)
  • Beau Rivage Resort & Casino (Biloxi, Mississippi)
  • MGM Grand Detroit (Detroit, Michigan)
  • MGM National Harbor (Oxon Hill, Maryland)
  • MGM Springfield (Springfield, Massachusetts)

What will Marriott platinum get u at MGM for status?


Will nights at MGM earn free nights towards status at Marriott?


Globalist matched to mgm gold until now. Any idea what mgm gold would match to in marriott? May be able to match up there to platinum or top tier marriott like that. Wishful thinking…


Well now there will be resort fees even on award stays because it’s Marriott


Will Marriott Status be matched by MGM? When/how can that be done?


Dan, can one use Hyatt status (and in the future Marriott status) to gain the perks like free parking? Or is the status match required first and then only associate the stay with an MGM number? Or can one associate a stay with both MGM and Hyatt/Marriott simultaneously? Thanks in advance for your advice!


I originally status matched my Hyatt status to mgm. is there any overlap in dates that i will be able to status match my mgm status to Marriott? or will my mgm expire before the relationship between mgm and Marriott start?


I currently have Platinum Elite with Marriott. Do you think there will be overlap that I could status match to MGM and then from MGM to Hyatt before they discontinue their relationship?

I don’t care one way or another, as I live in Vegas… as long as I can match and get even Pearl, that’s fine because then at least they won’t pick my pocket just to park in their garage.


When can I book mgm from my bonvoy account?
