What are my chances of exchanging into a Marriott or a Westin (summer 2010) anywhere in Hawaii using my Royal Resort week 25.
If I place the request now, it would be about 18 months out. I will join II and pay their fees if there is any chance of getting the exchange.

TIA

The Westin Resorts do Bulk Space Banking and they mostly deposit off-season weeks. If you use the search function on the Sightings Board, you can see what weeks have been deposited in the past.

Yes, I do see the off-season bulk space banking, but I have never seen summer sightings. Thats why I was wondering if anyone has ever got summer weeks from II.

Summer in Hawaii

I deposited a 1BR about 15 months out and got KoOlina 4th of July week last summer. At about 4 weeks to check-in I was able to upgrade to a 2BR.:D As the price of airfare has risen so, apparently, has Hawaii availability by my observations. I should add that I had Marriott preference to secure this exchange.

Hello,

Just curious as to what 1BR week you use to secure the Ko Olina? you paid another exchange fee for the upgrade?

Vincent.
