Just a week after news broke that MGM Rewards and World of Hyatt would end their decade-long relationship, Marriott announced a “long-term strategic licensing agreement” with MGM.

The existing MGM/Hyatt relationship ends at the end of September 2023, and then in October 2023, the “MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy” will be officially launched.

Here’s everything you need to know about this upcoming partnership.

MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy Coming in October

As of October 2023, the MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy will incorporate 17 MGM properties (about 40,000 rooms) in Las Vegas and other cities across the U.S.

“We are excited to make MGM Resorts’ incredible properties available on Marriott channels, allowing our members to enjoy Marriott Bonvoy benefits when they stay at MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy resorts,” said Anthony Capuano, President and Chief Executive Officer, Marriott International. “We look forward to increasing our global rooms distribution by 2.4 percent as we grow our presence on the Las Vegas Strip and in other compelling destinations across the U.S.”

As soon as the new partnership is launched, several MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy properties will be available to book through Marriott’s website and its mobile app (iOS, Android). The remaining properties will be bookable through Marriott by the end of 2023. Of course, you’ll still be able to book these properties through MGM’s website and the MGM Resorts mobile app (iOS, Android).

As mentioned above, a total of 17 MGM properties will be members of the MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy portfolio. Of these, 4 will join existing Marriott brands:

There are 8 other Las Vegas MGM properties that will participate in the new partnership:

Finally, 5 additional MGM properties across the U.S. will join the MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy:

Reciprocal Loyalty Benefits

As would be expected in a partnership such as this, Marriott Bonvoy and MGM Rewards members can expect crossover loyalty benefits once the MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy is launched.

We don’t have a ton of details right now, but Marriott Bonvoy members will have access to perks at all MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy properties, and MGM Rewards members can expect to receive “certain benefits” at Marriott Bonvoy properties across the globe.

According to Marriott, “members of both programs will also be able to exchange MGM Rewards points for Marriott Bonvoy points and vice versa,” though there’s no word yet surrounding how earning and redeeming points will work at participating properties.

Marriott says that it will communicate further information regarding linking accounts, “new experiences” and benefits over the next few months as we get closer to the launch of the partnership.

Marriott Bonvoy and BetMGM

The Marriott/MGM tie-up goes deeper than just resort properties. Marriott Bonvoy is poised “to become BetMGM’s exclusive hospitality loyalty program partner in the U.S. and Canada.”

BetMGM is MGM’s proprietary online gaming and sports-betting platform, and the new partnership means Marriott Bonvoy members can earn Marriott Bonvoy points on select BetMGM transactions and will be able to participate in exclusive experiences hosted on the BetMGM platform.

Marriott says more information will be available in the fall, but it did note that BetMGM members will be able to convert their BetMGM Rewards points to Marriott Bonvoy points.

Final Thoughts

It was somewhat inevitable that MGM would seek another partner after announcing the end of its longstanding relationship with Hyatt. And just about a week after that announcement, we’re learning that it’s moving into Marriott’s orbit.

While there are a lot of details that have yet to be shared, we know that come October 2023, 17 MGM resorts across the country will join the new MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy and members of each program can look forward to reciprocal benefits.

We’re looking forward to learning more about how members can earn and redeem points at this group of properties — we’ll certainly be following this developing story and will share updates as we learn of them.
