This request has to be removed because of the following reason(s):resort blackout dates

I think they're being honest in not taking your money -- there's no way Starwood would ever deposit those weeks.

Except that some folks add such "impossible" matches to meet the minimum three resorts/three weeks requirement. For example, if you really just want one resort for one week for, say, a request-first search, you can add Christams and New Years at Westin St. John's to get you to three.

Starwood ( who run the Harborside), controls all weeks that are deposited into II. Therefore they can say to II that there are some weeks that will never be deposited into II. ( ie blackout date)

Most resorts, in which a owner can reserve and deposit any week that they own, will not have blackout dates.
