The new partnership with crate “MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy”, which will launch in October 2023, and encompass 17 of MGM’s unrivaled resorts, representing more than 40,000 rooms in Las Vegas and other cities across the U.S.
Beginning in October, several MGM Collection with Marriott Bonvoy resorts will be available for booking on Marriott’s robust digital platforms, including Marriott.com and the Marriott Bonvoy mobile app, with all properties expected to be available by the end of the year. These resorts will continue to be available on MGM Resorts’ channels, including MGMRewards.com and the MGM Resorts mobile app.
The two companies have shared some details about the new partnership, but there are also some unknowns that will be revealed soon. “New experiences and other loyalty program benefits will be provided to members of both programs in the coming months,” they said in the press release.
