Beginning June 20, 2013 a new partnership between Hyatt Gold Passport and MGM Resorts Las Vegas will expand Hyatt Gold Passport members earning and redeeming options in Las Vegas.

Key Benefits To Hyatt Gold Passport Members

There are a number of official key benefits, but I find the following most helpful for Hyatt Gold Passport members.

  • Reciprocal status (opt-in) with M Life and associated benefits (August)
    • Coming in August, Hyatt Gold Passport members will be
      eligible to opt-in to a reciprocal tier status in MGM Resorts’
      M life, providing benefits at participating MGM Resorts
  • Earn HGP for every dollar spent at MGM resorts
    • Hyatt Gold Passport members will receive Hyatt Gold
      Passport points on every eligible dollar spent at the 12
      participating MGM Resorts destinations in Las Vegas.
  • Stays count towards status
    • All eligible stays at any of the participating MGM Resorts
      destinations in Las Vegas will count toward Hyatt Gold
      Passport tier status.
  • Redeem HGP points in Vegas at MGM properties
    • Hyatt Gold Passport members will be able to redeem their
      Hyatt Gold Passport points for award nights at participating
      MGM Resorts destinations in Las Vegas.

Status Match Options

Hyatt Gold Passport members will be matched to M Life Tiers as follows:


M Life members will be matched to Hyatt Gold Passport status as follows:


M Life Platinum Status Benefits

Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond members who elect to receive reciprocal elite member benefits will receive the associated benefits (outlined in this link) which include among other things:

  • Invitations to Members-Only Events and Tournaments
  • Accelerated point and comp earning by 30%
  • Priority Access to Pool Cabanas and Bungalows
  • Turndown service
  • Spa/Salon Priority Reservations
  • Access to Dedicated Concierge Phone Line
  • 15% Discount at Participating Retail Shops
  • Coffee Shop Line Pass
  • Fine Dining Priority Reservation
  • Buffet Line Pass
  • Special Access to Nightclubs and Pool Day Clubs for You and a Guest

Bottom Line

It’s great to see Hyatt earning and redeeming options expand into Vegas through this partnership.

This opens up a few interesting questions like:

  • Will casino markers charged to the room earn points with Hyatt Gold Passport?
  • Are there any status matches or challenges with M Life that would then allow those members to reciprocate into Hyatt’s Platinum status?

  1. This of course comes after I spend an entire week at an MGM resort and charged a ridiculous amount of money to the room.

    I wonder if they’ll give you credit for recent stays. 🙂

  2. Ps. This makes my favorite Vegas hotel, Vdara, an even better deal now that I can earn Hyatt points!
