Copied, edited for clarity and combined two threads from the old BBS (CraigU was an authorized II representative to TUG when he posted these messages.)

I've read that Marriott owners have preference at II for other Marriott resorts. My question is how much weight does ownership give me? Say I have Florida and want Hawaii, but a non-Marriott Paris owner also wants the same unit, all other things being equal. Who prevails?

All inventory received from Marriott properties are held for a certain period before they are released to non Marriott owners. The comparable exchange methodology, outlined in our terms and conditions, still apply. This program offers a measurable advantage.

Craig,
Since I am a Marriott owner and can view Marriott units before the rest of the II members, can I use a non-Marriott unit to trade into the Marriott or do I have to use the Marriott unit? This assumes that the non-Marriott unit has good trading power.

You will only receive the internal priority when trading the Marriott week.

Craig,
The holding period sounds like a fair approach, but you did not say (or will not say?) how long that period is.

The length of the internal hold is dictated by the lead time to the occupancy dates. The maximum hold is 24 days. However, it can be as few as 3 days [during some part of the flex change period].

I am getting conflicting stories regarding the Horizons resorts by Marriott. Marriott is telling me that they are (since last year) looked at the same as any other Marriott. Example: Cypress Habour. But now timeshare owners are telling me that Horizons does not get the same special priority exchange period of choices when looking for a trade. Can you please clarify this for me?

Horizons by Marriott DOES have an internal priority.

Does it have the same internal priority as other Marriott resorts, such as Cypress Habour and Grand Vista?
