One of my least favorite Hyatt hotels, the Ocean Resort Atlantic City will be leaving Hyatt as of January 1, 2020. We’ve shared Why World of Hyatt Members Should Avoid the Ocean Resort Atlantic City, and it turns out that they’ve must of gotten enough complaints from World of Hyatt members, as the partnership between the two is officially ending.
For those who have been, even though this is part of Hyatt’s Unbound Collection, the hotel has their own reservation system, which causes confusion including not even seeing a World of Hyatt’s member status, not locating points reservations and more.
Per Ocean Resort,
Ocean Resort Casino will no longer be operated as a Hyatt-affiliated hotel or within The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand. The hotel will continue its normal business operations as a part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand through 11:59pm EST on December 31, 2019. Reservations may continue to be booked on Hyatt booking channels until 11:59pm EST on December 31, 2019.
Ocean Resort Casino remains dedicated to providing exceptional service to our guests during the transition. Existing hotel reservations, except for World of Hyatt award stays, will not be affected due to this brand change. After December 31, 2019, World of Hyatt members will not be eligible to receive World of Hyatt program benefits when staying at the hotel, including earning World of Hyatt points and redeeming World of Hyatt points or free night awards. World of Hyatt members with award stays scheduled at this hotel after December 31, 2019 may contact Hyatt’s Global Reservations Center at 1-800-344-9288 for further assistance and booking options.
I’ve stayed here a couple times in the past few years and always have had negative experiences as a World of Hyatt Globalist, and have filed complains with World of Hyatt. I can’t help but think that I’m not the only who had such a poor experience in the past, and given the limited partnership to begin with, Hyatt decided to cut ties.
