MGM Resorts Mlife has partnered with Morgans Hotel Group. One of the imminent changes is THEhotel Mandalay Bay rebranding to Delano Las Vegas Fall 2014. THEhotel is a hotel within Mandalay Bay Resort.

Here is my review of a King Suite stay at THEhotel July 2013. Hotel Review THE King Suite at THEhotel Las Vegas.

Mondrian Los Angeles is a hotel I visited a couple years back on Sunset Boulevard, near Andaz West Hollywood.

Andaz West Hollywood was rock and roll cool. The Mondrian was more LA scene and be seen.

In my mailbox today I found a black envelope from MGM Resorts.

I googled Morgan Hotels Group Global Card. A couple of Hotel Chatter articles from 2010 came up.

The Complete List of What the Morgans Hotel Group Global Card Gets You – Hotel Chatter August 26, 2010

Morgans Hotel Group–is there a loyalty program? – Flyertalk 2010-2011 thread has some discussion on card benefits.

One minute I am scrounging for Choice Privileges points for Norway and booking $50 room nights in Greece at 3-star Best Western hotels and the next minute I am thinking about free nights in luxury hotels in Cartagena, Moscow and Turkey.

I’ll be in Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay in September for the Boarding Area BACON2 conference. Looks like I might want to stay one extra night.
