Use Hyatt Points to Stay in Vegas on New Years Eve

I have to admit to having a touch of Vegas-itis recently (thanks in large part to the new MGM M Life and Hyatt partnership plus having not gone in over a year!), so I have been playing around with some of the Hyatt point options in Vegas.  Unlike with regular Hyatt hotels, there are some blackout dates when using Hyatt points to stay in the MGM Hotels in Vegas.  Naturally you would expect one of those blackout dates in Vegas to be New Year’s Eve, and in many cases it appears to be true.

However, there is one lone option of a night on Hyatt Gold Passport points on the Strip for New Year’s Eve.  For 15,000 points you can stay at the New York – New York Hotel and Casino on December 31st when the going rate is $350.  That’s actually not bad compared to what some of the going rates can be for big nights like New Year’s Eve.  If you were willing to stay a couple of nights then a few more options are available.

If you want to head to Vegas for NYE and would prefer to spend Hyatt points instead of cash, looks like it is possible!  There aren’t ample options, but it can be done.  My advice if you want to use Hyatt points for any of the really popular Vegas dates is to start looking early and be flexible with your choice of properties.

  1. @MP, I hope Hyatt and MGM can come to an agreement and waive the resort fees for award nights. Do you know if you can book paid stays and pay 6,000 Hyatt points to upgrade the stay will work at these MGM hotels?

  2. Grant, that would be great, but probably a hard sell as resort fees are such a huge part of Vegas these days. I don’t believe you can use points to upgrade, just like you can’t use Diamond confirmed upgrades.
