Last night my husband and I had the honor of attending an event at the Mansions at MGM Grand to celebrate the partnership between MGM M Life and Hyatt Gold Passport. We’ve stayed at the MGM plenty of times, but have never dreamed of stepping foot in the Mansions. I like quarter slots and occasionally cheap blackjack tables, but I have never (and will never) gamble a fraction of what is required to typically be invited to the Mansions. Here is a peek at a room from the MGM Mansions website – we didn’t make it into the actual villas, but we still got to see some pretty cool stuff.
To get into the Mansions, if you don’t know where to look for the entrance, you likely would never stumble across them. Thankfully we had a sign (and some hired models?!) to show us the way.
Once you arrive in the Mansions, it is like you are in a totally different place. I think I referred to it as feeling like you ‘went down the rabbit hole’. It is calm, clean, bright, peaceful, and serene.
In attendance at the event were many Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond members, Hyatt executives and staff, and MGM M Life executives and staff. I got a chance to chat with many from both Hyatt and MGM and they all seem genuinely excited about this. I was told his has been in the works for years and a ton of manpower has been in play to make it happen. Everyone seemed genuinely excited about getting to this point and having the partnership up and running.
As could be expected in Vegas, the party was extravagant and elegant.
I ate way too much before the party to truly appreciate all of the food that was available, but I did my best to make good use of the champagne. Maybe I made too good of a use of the champagne, but that’s a different story…
As a side note, we did try to pump some Hyatt folks for info on whether they will buddy up with an airline to offer reciprocal benefits there, similar to what we have recently seen from United and Marriott. Not surprisingly we didn’t get told any big secrets, but the answer was neither yes or no. Instead, the answer was with a question to want to understand what Gold Passport members would think of such a partnership. I don’t know what Hyatt has up their sleeves next for us, but if history serves as a fair indicator for the future, then I think there is a very good chance it will be something good.
In the meantime, it was a lot of fun to celebrate this big enhancement with some old and new friends alike in a spot in Vegas that I certainly never thought I would have access to. This party coupled with the Noir status for attending was a pretty amazing way to spend a night in July!
