MGM Collection With Marriott Bonvoy Is Live With Special Las Vegas Packages

After months of delays, the Marriott partnership with MGM Resorts International is now live. The MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy was set to debut last October, but that was delayed due to a cybersecurity attack at MGM.

In January, MGM Resorts announced some information on the partnership with the worldwide hotel operator. Some hotels were available for booking in Feb. and now the MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy partnership is live.

Future visitors to MGM Resorts properties in Las Vegas and around the US can now book hotel rooms through the Marriott Bonvoy system online or on the mobile app. In addition to booking hotel rooms, guests can also bid for a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience called Marriott Bonvoy Moments.

The special experiences are one reason that Marriott decided to partner with MGM. In a Marriott International news release, Executive Vice President and Chief Customer Officer, at Marriott International Peggy Roe elaborated:

“Travelers are seeking larger-than-life moments that speak to their passions and the destinations they love, and this guides our approach to orchestrating the guest and Marriott Bonvoy member experience at MGM Collection properties.”

Both companies see this partnership as a win-win-win. MGM Resorts (NYSE: MGM) and Marriott should generate greater revenue with the deal while guests can pay with points or buy special experiences.

How the MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy works

The MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy is different from the previous deal between the casino operator and its previous hotel partner.

Tier matching only works for upper-tier MGM Rewards members to become high-status Marriott Bonvoy patrons. This is not reciprocal like the previous hotel arrangement by MGM Resorts. Marriott Bonvoy members cannot match their status with MGM Rewards.

This can be great for casino visitors looking to spread their wings and travel outside of casinos. Upper-tier Marriott Bonvoy members have a slew of benefits at hotels around the world.

The real benefit of this partnership is for Marriott Bonvoy members who want to visit casinos. These visitors can book rooms in MGM Resorts casinos in Las Vegas and around the country using Bonvoy points.

These MGM Resorts Las Vegas casinos are now bookable through Marriott Bonvoy:

  • Aria (Autograph Collection)
  • Bellagio (Luxury Collection)
  • Cosmopolitan (Autograph Collection)
  • Excalibur
  • Luxor
  • Mandalay Bay
  • MGM Grand and The Signature
  • New York-New York
  • NoMad (at Park MGM)
  • Park MGM (Tribute Collection)
  • Vdara (at Aria)

Five MGM Resorts casinos around the country are now bookable through Marriott Bonvoy:

  • MA: MGM Springfield
  • MD: MGM National Harbor
  • MI: MGM Grand Detroit
  • MS: Beau Rivage
  • NJ: Borgata

The Marriott Bonvoy points needed for hotel room reservations are different based on the hotel category and location.

Marriott Bonvoy Moments are unique Las Vegas casino packages

MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy is kicking off the partnership with three unique Las Vegas casino packages. Marriott Bonvoy members can bid points to win one of the following packages at an MGM Resorts Las Vegas casino.

April 13-16: The Ultimate Golf Weekend at Shadow Creek

Guest are bidding on a weekend of golf for four that includes access for four to play 18 holes of golf at Shadow Creek Golf Course. This course was designed by Tom Fazio.

The weekend of golf continues with a VIP Bungalow Bay at Topgolf for four during the final round of the major tournament. Food and beverages are included at the golf venue that’s part of the MGM Grand complex.

The winner and their group will stay at a suite at Aria and enjoy a VIP Dinner experience for four at Carbone inside Aria. This is one of the best restaurants in Las Vegas and typically requires reservations months in advance.

Lastly, the package includes roundtrip ground transportation between Harry Reid International Airport and the hotel as well as between the hotel and the golf course.

July 25-28: Cirque du Soleil, the MGM Collection Way

This is a two-person package that includes more Cirque du Soleil than one could have ever imagined. Both guests will see four Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas:

  1. KÀ at MGM Grand
  2. Michael Jackson ONE at Mandalay Bay
  3. Mad Apple at New York-New York
  4. “O” at Bellagio

The VIP experience for each show includes backstage tours for each show. There will also be meet-and-greets with select performers at each show.

Winners receive a custom makeup experience backstage at one of the shows by a Cirque du Soleil makeup artist. They will also be able to have a pre-show onstage photo opportunity with the cast at one of the shows.

The winning guests will enjoy a three-night stay in a one-bedroom SKYLOFT at MGM Grand as well as a $500 food and beverage credit for the visit.

Transportation between Harry Reid International Airport and the hotel and from MGM Grand to each show is included.

Aug. 23-26: Choreograph the World-Famous Bellagio Fountain Show

This is truly a unique once-in-a-lifetime experience. For the first time in the 25-year history of the Bellagio fountain show MGM Resorts is allowing someone outside of the company to choreograph the world-famous show.

This two-part package begins outside of Las Vegas. The winners will win a two-night stay at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA.

While in CA they will work with choreographers to design their own Bellagio Fountain show at the WET campus in Los Angeles.

All transportation in LA is included in the package.

A few months after the LA portion of this package, the duo will head to Las Vegas for a three-night stay in a penthouse suite at Bellagio. There’s also a three-night stay in up to two Salone Suites for friends.

Up to six people can watch the debut of the custom fountain show at The Mayfair Supper Club inside Bellagio.

Visit the auction page at Marriott for more information on each of the packages. There will be more packages announced in the future.
