After 6 nights in 4 MGM Hotels on our last Las Vegas Pool Tour I can now reliably report which ones of my Mlife Hyatt stay credit as official “stays” towards Hyatt Status renewal:
Paid nights (booked via Mlife.com): Counted
Paid nights (booke via AMEX FHR and Visa Signature): Counted
Comp night (invited by Casino, paid resort fee): NOT Counted
Comp night (MyVegas game certificate, paid resort fee) : NOT Counted
So my unofficial research notes that while any $$ spent on MGM properties (and charged to the room) DO earn Hyatt Points, stays that are not at a paid rate do NOT earn stay credit.
Note that NO MGM stays count towards the Diamond Challenge!
