I am so confused :confused: with how to view anything other than a MVC resort. Can someone please walk me through it?
I have a fixed week and I have DP.
I find the booking process so confusing in the Marriott VC website.

Please help......... :doh:

Sheraton and Westin resorts can only be exchanged into via Interval with an MVC resort. They are completely different systems at the present time.

A few in S and VA, a single resort in NC, MD, PA, and UT, plus Jamaica and the Bahamas
You would see some priority viewings through II.

As others have said, the MVC website only shows MVC locations. The only way for an MVC owner to book Westin and Sheraton right now is through an Interval International trade. The two systems are totally separate. They are working on some kind of internal exchange system, but that won’t be rolled out until later this year, at the earliest.

If you want direct access to Westin and Sheraton you will need to buy Westin and Sheraton and will have a completely separate account. There currently is no other way to book direct.

As others have stated you can exchange through II, exactly the way you did before except I believe they waive the exchange fee and possibly you have some priority in seeing exchange inventory.

Via two sales presentations the rep has mentioned Trust, Destination Points and "Hybrid" (different than a hybrid purchase of weeks and points or enrolling old trust weeks with new points purchase). I have trust Manor Club week/points but they talk about owning newly purchased "Hybrid" points so that I will be able to book at Westin or Hyatt properties. Once these properties officially come into the Marriott portfolio (2021?), would I not be able to reserve them as any other Marriott property? Is this just a sales gimmick of the rep to get me to buy Destination points?

A sales gimmick.

As others have stated, there is no announced integration of the Marriott and Vistana systems apart from an Interval preference; anything to the contrary is speculation.

Another option is using the discount offered to MVC owners of 25% off the leisure rate at vistana signature properties (Westin & Sheraton vacation clubs). Just use the code 14974 in the corp promo.

We own both a Hyatt and a Marriott. You would be amazed at how different the two owner's updates are in regards to the plans for the future. Marriott's sales reps will lead you to believe that owners will be able to trade directly into Hyatt in the future but Hyatt won't be able to trade into Marriott. The problem with this logic is that Hyatt is a much smaller system so if Hyatt can't trade out, there wouldn't be many rooms for Marriott owners trying to get in? Unless I am missing something...…...…………..
Hyatt will tell you the two companies are acting totally independently and the inventories will not be merged.
So go figure...………………….
My guess is that with everything else going on right now and sales centers being closed for business - the transition will be further delayed (even if there is a super secret plan in place).
If Marriott could take the good parts of all of the programs that they have bought and combine them, it might be a pretty good program.

Technically and legally speaking, Trust Points and Enrolled points are separate entities and could see different inventory. But in reality this is almost never the case. What I think you're referring to is the idea of adding trust points that gives you access to inventory the DC points can't see and again, while technically possible and might occur rarely, it's effetely a non issue and certainly not worth buying retail for or even at all unless you just need the extra points.
