i once owned (4) marriott Timeshares. I own none today.
i really liked the (13) month booking window vs (12) month booking window
to reserve a great marriott week for trading thru Interval.

I have a friend that is close to purchase of (1) marriott platimum resale?
if he only purchases (1) will he be dissapointed with ther fierce competition
of the (12) month window
when I owned (4) marriott timeshares. I had a comfortable (13) month window

he is going to purchase a marriott grande vista/Annual/2 bedroom/Lock off
Platinum season
