I am a relatively new user, and have been reading many of the posts here. What I think would be helpful would be to see a consolidated listing of both the Maintenance Fees (these are already in the FAQs) and the Sales Price as being offered by Marriott. It would also be nice to see what incentives are being offered. It would help those of us evaluating different places to see the respective costs. It would help us make a better choice. Also, by having the Marriott prices, it also helps us evaluate the re-sale options.

Unless it is contrary to the rules of this BBS, it would be nice to see the sale prices and incentives offered by Marriott by resort. I know they change regularly, but I think others would appreciate the information.

Wow! You're asking for a LOT of information. Is there any particular resort that you are interested in? Or are you asking for the info on every resort?

Perhaps a call to Marriott Telesales is in Order?

That would be one stop shopping for all the information that you are looking for.

The first place to visit is the Marriott Vacation Club site vacationclub.com.

Good luck!

Unfortunately, it's not practical to add and maintain such info to our FAQs.

First, we would have to get the info. Second, we would have to put it in a reasonable format. You have seen how extensive the historical fees schedule is. Imagine the required detail for a resort where we would have to list the prices for the various views (oceanfront, garden view, mountain view, etc.) and in each season for each view and then all of that information separately for the 1BR, 2BR and 3BR units. Multiply that by the number of resorts and you've got a lot of numbers.

Don't forget resales on resorts that are sold out, since Marriott handles those, too. And how about the new fixed weeks at Maui Sequel? There are 306 different pricing structures for that one resort! That doesn't count the floating weeks that will be offered there!

Mindboggling!

Then consider how often prices get changed. At Grand Chateau, for example, there have been approximately nine (yes, nine) price changes since May 2004.

And incentives? They change as often as Marriott decides to change them for each resort. Also, sometimes there are extra incentives - or no incentives - that are offered, either onsite or through telesales.

Without access to several knowledgeable people at Marriott who would be willing to share all of the info, it would be impossible to keep up with so many variables. To keep the info current, once we got it, would take many hours every month. Since the TUG BBS operates exclusively with volunteer help, finding those hours for a project that has fleeting value might be very difficult.

Yes, it would be nice info to have. However, other than the occasional post here by someone who has recently obtained prices for a particular resort, I think calling your favorite rep at Marriott telesales (or starting that effort through the website, as Charles suggests) is a worthwhile alternative!

If you don’t have a contact, you can call telesales and develop your own. Or almost any TUGger who is a Marriott owner can refer you to a salesperson that would love to help. Marriott telesales people are almost universally helpful and not pushy!
