Marriott International, Inc and MGM Resorts International have entered into an exclusive long-term strategic licensing agreement and the creation of 'MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy', which will launch in October 2023.
From October, a selection of MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy resorts will be available for booking on Marriott’s digital platforms, including Marriott.com and the Marriott Bonvoy mobile app. All properties are expected to be available to book via Marriott by the end of the year.
All resorts will continue to be available on MGM Resorts’ channels, including MGMRewards.com and the MGM Resorts mobile app.
The agreement between MGM Resorts and Marriott will benefit members of both companies’ loyalty programmes. Members of MGM Rewards, MGM Resorts’ acclaimed loyalty platform with more than 40 million members, will be eligible to link accounts with Marriott Bonvoy and receive select member benefits. Members of Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott’s award-winning loyalty platform with more than 180 million members, will be able to earn and redeem points for stays at all MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy properties.
Of the 17 MGM resorts that will join MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy, four properties will also be affiliated with existing Marriott collection brands: Bellagio Resort & Casino will join The Luxury Collection; ARIA Resort & Casino will join Autograph Collection; Park MGM will become part of Tribute Portfolio, and The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas will continue its affiliation with Autograph Collection.
Eight MGM resorts in Las Vegas will join MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy: Vdara Hotel & Spa; MGM Grand Hotel & Casino; NoMad Las Vegas; The Signature at MGM Grand; Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino; New York-New York Hotel & Casino; Luxor Hotel and Casino, and Excalibur Hotel & Casino.
Five MGM Resorts in other US locations will also join MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy: Borgata (Atlantic City, New Jersey), Beau Rivage (Biloxi, Mississippi), MGM Grand Detroit (Michigan), MGM National Harbor (Maryland), and MGM Springfield (Massachusetts).
MGM Resorts president and chief executive officer Bill Hornbuckle said: “This historic, long-term agreement brings together two of the most trusted and iconic brands in hospitality and entertainment. We’ve seen first-hand the strong demand from Marriott International customers through our existing relationship at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and this new agreement will enable us to further optimise our overall profitability.
"We’re thrilled to now scale the relationship and offer Marriott Bonvoy members greater distribution access to our award-winning resorts – as well as exclusive event and entertainment opportunities – in Las Vegas and across the US.”
Marriott International president and chief executive officer Anthony Capuano added: "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. 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 US.”
