Comparing Mlife Hotel Discounts to Hyatt

I am planning to take a quick weekend trip to Las Vegas.  As a Hyatt diamond member, I wanted to make use of the Diamond Benefits. However, I also wanted to stay at a nice hotel in the middle of all of the action.  Unfortunately Hyatt does not have any properties directly in Las Vegas.  However, there is a Hyatt Place just outside the main part of the city, but that’s not really what I’m interested in for the weekend.

There is another option.  Hyatt has a partnership with mlife.  Mlife has many more desirable hotel properties in Las Vegas which include: Aria, Bellagio, Vdara, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, Delano, The Mirage, Monte Carlo, New York-New York, Luxor, Excalibur, and Circus-Circus.

Status Match to Hyatt

Hyatt Gold Passport members have the ability to status match to Mlife the program.  As a Diamond Member, my status would match to Platinum Status in the Mlife program.

Once my status matched over to the Mlife program, any hotel I stayed at in Vegas that was part of the Mlife program would enable me to earn extra benefits as well as Hyatt Gold Passport Points.

Mandalay Bay Cost

What I wasn’t expecting was a price difference between booking a hotel through Hyatt Gold Passport or booking the same hotel through the Mlife web site.  What I realized was that by booking directly through the Mlife program, you were quoted a better daily hotel rate than by booking the same hotel through the Hyatt website.

For a hotel stay on June 3rd at the Mandalay Bay, the Mlife web site quotes a daily rate of $401 per night.  The Hyatt web site quotes a daily rate of $445 per night.

Even though I’m booking the same hotel on the same date, its very clear that Mlife offers slightly better daily rates than Hyatt.  When I checked across dates and properties, the price advantage was relatively consistent with the Mlife program offering a slightly better rate.
