Marriott and MGM Launch Partnership

Marriott and MGM to Launch Partnership

In July 2023, MGM Resorts and Marriott International announced a future partnership that would entail long-term licensing and the creation of MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy. The agreement was set to be in effect as of October 2023, but was pushed back until early 2024.

The partnership is now fully in effect, and we know all the details about what members can expect.

Marriott and MGM Launch Long-Term Partnership

Marriott and MGM have entered a long-term partnership that is set to last 20 years.

The agreement consists of multiple facets, signifying a deep, robust cooperation between MGM and Marriott. However, three aspects of the partnership are particularly interesting:

  • Synergy between Marriott Bonvoy and MGM Rewards
  • The creation of MGM Collection With Marriott Bonvoy
  • Flagging of four properties under Marriott’s “soft brands”

Marriott Bonvoy and MGM Rewards members can link their accounts between both loyalty programs, which we’ll discuss in detail below.

MGM Rewards members will then get to access benefits at Marriott properties, while Marriott Bonvoy members, in turn, will be eligible to earn points and redeem for nights at MGM properties.

Meanwhile, 17 MGM properties in Las Vegas and the rest of the US have joined the Marriott umbrella. Under the agreement, the properties are available for reservations through Marriott sales channels, in addition to MGM’s own sales channels.

ARIA Resort & Casino will soon be flagged under the Autograph Collection brand

Four of the 16 are flagged under Marriott’s “soft brands”:

  • Bellagio Resort & Casino (The Luxury Collection)
  • ARIA Resort & Casino (Autograph Collection)
  • Park MGM (Tribute Portfolio)
  • The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas (to continue as Autograph Collection)

On the other hand, 12 properties are marketed under the encompassing MGM Collection With Marriott Bonvoy brand:

  • Vdara Hotel & Spa
  • MGM Grand Hotel & Casino
  • The Signature at MGM Grand
  • Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino
  • New York-New York Hotel & Casino
  • Luxor Hotel and Casino
  • Excalibur Hotel & Casino
  • Borgata (Atlantic City, New Jersey)
  • Beau Rivage (Biloxi, Mississippi)
  • MGM Grand Detroit (Michigan)
  • MGM National Harbor (Maryland)
  • MGM Springfield (Massachusetts)

Note that Mandalay Bay, Delano, NoMad Las Vegas, and understandably, the Four Seasons Las Vegas, aren’t part of the agreement.
