Hyatt Hotels Corporation have announced they will end their partnership with Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City effective 1st January 2020.
According to a report from the Press of Atlantic City the two partnered up in June of 2018 where the Ocean Casino Resort became a part of Hyatt’s Unbound Collection brand. This was to put Ocean Casino Resort among the top resort hotels in the world making them more marketable being a part of the Hyatt’s global client base.
However, the Press of Atlantic City reported that the Ocean Casino Resort was not given much exposure on the website of the Hyatt Hotels Corporation. This meant that, often times, guests would have to look for both reservation and information pertaining to booking by themselves.
It was reported by the Press of Atlantic City that in an official press release from Hyatt Hotels Corporation stating that the Ocean Casino Resort “will no longer be operated as a Hyatt-affiliated hotel or within The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand from midnight on December 31.”
The press release went on to stay that Hyatt would still offer exceptional service to their guests while this change takes place and that hotel reservations would not be affected in any way. Hyatt also said through the press release that, “After December 31, World of Hyatt members will not be eligible to receive World of Hyatt program benefits when staying at the hotel including earning World of Hyatt points and redeeming World of Hyatt points or free night awards.”
Ocean Resort Casino also released a press statement that the partnership was ending “due to our continued success” and that, “hotel volumes no longer permit preferential booking” for Hyatt Hotels Corporation clientele. It went on to say, “We are grateful to Hyatt Hotels Corporation for the impetus it gave us for our grand reopening and value Hyatt Hotels Corporation’s guests.”
Official information from the New Jersey gambling Division of Gaming Enforcement showed that the Ocean Resort Casino had an average rate of occupancy of 99.6% for the third quarter of 2019 and that figure ranks second of the nine Atlantic City casino properties.
The Ocean Resort Casino was previously called the Revel Atlantic City and they have 138,000 square feet of casino space with nearly 2,000 slot machines, a sportsbook, and 107 gaming tables.
The spa area, which is 32,000 square feet and owned by Hyatt Hotels Corporation, will not change because of the termination of the partnership. However, in the near future it may be more difficult for guests to make a reservation for a room.
