I own 3 ski weeks at Lakeside Terrace, 1 at Sheraton Vistana Spas, 3 at Atlantis (should they EVER get transferred...10 1/2 months and have STILL not gotten to Starwood). We also own at Aruba Beach Club and Hyatt Beach House Key West.

I replied so long ago that my answer doesn't fully apply any more! :) But it's great to see such a large distribution of properties to gain info on.

I bet the numbers would look very different if the slate was wiped clean and the poll was started all over today. There's been a LOT of buying and selling over the last couple of years! (Those SDO numbers seem low, don't they?)

It's Denise's fault that soooo.... many SDOs have been picked up by TUGgers :D

I was thinking the same thing.....Maybe we should reboot and start over.

The poll was put up in 2008 - at that time Westin Aruba was on the drawing board, and we expected sales to start.

Recently, someone posted to this thread, and brought the poll out of mothballs.

I did a quick total of the votes for each resort. And, I was surprised by what is shown by comparing it to the number of voters.

There are currently 584 total Starwood weeks listed by 365 total voters. That's 1.6 weeks per voter. I am surprised that the statistic on Starwood ownership by TUG Starwood posters is actually 1.6 weeks per poster voting. I thought it would be higher, like 3 or maybe even 4 Starwood weeks owned per poster voting since voting was not limited to SVN weeks.

Interesting! But, I'm not at all sure what it says about the poll. ... eom

I'm sure I'm not alone in that I voted prior to purchasing additional SVN weeks. This vote is not accurate since it's been going for sooooo long.

Maybe we can talk Denise into starting a 2011/2012 poll, hopefully with a new feature to include the number of weeks owned at each location.

Our poll function is very basic - we don't have the capability of listing the number of weeks at each resort - sorry.
