Do Vegas MGM nights count as qualifying nights towards globalist?

Hey all, curious if anyone knows whether paid MGM property nights in Vegas count towards my 60 nights to get globalist? I go to Vegas regularly for work; was thinking about changing where I normally stay to MGM properties if it gets me globalist, which I'd love to have for family trips to Hyatt properties.

Yup, they count as long as it's a normal rate. (freebies, potentially conference rates wouldn't count)

MGM Grand Booking through Convention. How to make sure I get Hyatt Status/Points?

Ah awesome. Heck, sometimes Excalibur is so cheap I may just book it and check in while staying elsewhere lol.

Watch out for the resort fee.

Just to note that some FT'ers have reported comp nights earning night credit, although others have had mixed experiences and I personally have never gotten night credit for comp nights.

I generally book through the MLife website to get the best pricing and the points and nights credit will still post to your Hyatt account (assuming you have linked your accounts). There was one time that it didn't post automatically and a quick call to Hyatt resolved it.

I've never really paid attention to if comp nights counted as qualifying nights since I don't stay enough with Hyatt to earn status the traditional way. But looking through the last 2 years of stay with MLIFE (all COMP nights), I have received qualifying nights credit for several comp stays. Tried looking for a pattern or similarity for receiving it but couldn't find any correlation. I received credit for stays that had spend and stays that didn't. My most recent stay was last week where I received 4 night credits with $0 spend (all charges were taken off at the back-end). I've seen others report receiving credit for comp stays too but haven't seen or found the criteria that triggers it.

I stopped going to Vegas in 2016 but I just went through my history. I had 17 stays at MGM properties that credited to my Hyatt account. All were comped. One stay earned qualifying nights; the other 16 stays did not.

Do all MGM properties nationwide count or just LV?

Weird. Wish there was info or data points on what triggers a comp night to count as a qualifying night.

Agree that Excal is pretty bad, but for around $25-$30(plus $40 resort fee) for weeknights during the summer, it may be a good option for a 1-2 night mattress run.

Compared to Excal, Luxor may be a little better and only cost a little more around $35-$40 a night for their recently renovated Tower One rooms. Their pool is a lot nicer too IMO.
