On Monday, I wrote that it appeared that the Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City would be leaving the Hyatt Unbound Collection.

It’s Confirmed. Ocean is Breaking Up with Hyatt

I hate to write this, because using Hyatt points for stays at Ocean Casino Resort on summer weekends was an AMAZING value. Often 4-5 cents a point.

But as of December 31st, this option will be no more.

From two different representatives at Hyatt, I received this:

“We have been advised that the Ocean Resort Casino will no longer be operated as a Hyatt-affiliated hotel or within The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand. The hotel will continue its normal business operations as a part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand through 11:59pm EST on December 31, 2019. Reservations may continue to be booked on Hyatt booking channels until 11:59pm EST on December 31, 2019”

I’ve already made it clear in my previous post that I think this will be another nail in the coffin for Ocean, removing yet another reason to make Ocean your one-stop gambling casino in Atlantic City.

I’d love to find out it’s because they are joining a different hotel chain, but I suspect that is not the case.

Did you gamble at Ocean because of the Hyatt tie-up? Will you still go?
