A New Horizon for Marriott and MGM Guests

The MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy initiative, now fully operational, encompasses 16 renowned U.S. hotels, primarily in Las Vegas, collectively boasting an astounding 40,000 rooms. This integration not only amplifies Marriott’s global room count by 2.4% but also marks a significant shift in the loyalty landscape, replacing MGM’s previous alliance with World of Hyatt.

For Marriott Bonvoy members, this expansion into the heart of Las Vegas offers a chance to engage with a city vibrant with entertainment and luxury, previously only available to a limited extent through Marriott’s network.

Exclusive Benefits and Seamless Experiences

Among the standout properties transitioning into Marriott’s orbit are the Bellagio Resort & Casino, ARIA Resort & Casino, and the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, alongside others like Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino and New York Hotel & Casino.

This partnership ensures that Marriott Bonvoy members can now enjoy a plethora of benefits, including elite status perks and the ability to earn and redeem points in some of Las Vegas’s most celebrated resorts.

Notably, the deal ushers in a range of privileges for Ambassador Elite members, such as waived resort fees, guaranteed suite upgrades, and VIP access, underscoring Marriott’s commitment to delivering an unparalleled guest experience.

However, these exclusive benefits come with a temporal limit, slated to last until the end of December 2024, urging members to maximize their advantages while they can.

Navigating Between Cash and Points

For travelers weighing the options between cash payments and point redemptions, the partnership introduces a dynamic pricing model. While the allure of using points is undeniable—especially with the fifth-night-free offer for redemptions—the addition of resort fees and the fluctuation of redemption costs necessitate a careful evaluation.

Moreover, the partnership extends the benefits beyond stays, offering Marriott Bonvoy members unique experiences through Marriott Bonvoy Moments, from orchestrating the Bellagio Fountain Show to exclusive golf weekends.


The strategic partnership between MGM Resorts and Marriott Bonvoy marks a watershed moment for the hospitality industry, particularly for those frequenting Las Vegas. It promises to enrich the travel experience through a blend of luxury, entertainment, and reward opportunities, albeit with nuances that require guests to navigate the fine print.

As this alliance unfolds, it stands as a testament to the evolving landscape of travel loyalty programs, offering a bridge between the world of hospitality and the allure of Vegas-style entertainment.
