Potential 1 in 4 problem on reservation at Hilton

    I just booked a great RCI points exchange online. Unfortunately, I think I might have a "1 in 4" problem. I'm soliciting advice on what to do.

    I booked a reservation at Hilton NY Club for later this year using my RCI points account. I realized afterward that I just stayed there last year using an RCI points exchange. I have several ways that I could book a Hilton stay, so it didn't come to mind right away.

    The system didn't alert me that the trade was restricted. (Some of my other accounts that can access this kind of inventory automatically exclude resorts that are restricted because of 1 in 4.) Does this mean that the reservation is allowed? (I believe that rules are different for RCI points versus weeks.) If not, does this mean I'll be notified at some random future date? Or will the restriction be enforced at check in?

    If it is a restriction that should concern me, is there a workaround? For example, could I order a guest certificate for my wife?

    I don't know the answer but I am curious to see if anyone else does? It's bound to happen.

    Another 1-4 question - I exchanged at a 1-4 resort back in 2015 and at least at this point, I can't even see the available weeks and we're getting close to 4 years (the stay was May 2015). I would like to be able to book a year out for 2019 but on the weeks side all of the inventory is still hidden. Does anyone know a workaround? Or will the weeks availability suddenly appear when it has been the full 4 years?

    Majority like more than 95% is only limiting week exchanges and not points exchange(I only heard of one resort limiting both weeks and points exchanges)

    A point exchange can be for 7 days so what matters is if the deposit which Hilton makes is for weeks for points. This specific Hilton New York was for a points deposit as you could any week day as checkin and any week day as check out.

    So in short, you are all good.

    Enjoy your great vacation
