I have spoken to the Colorado SVO sales manager, and indeed this is a real issue.
I have a small problem with Starwood selling all of those weeks as event weeks, as that was not made clear to me at purchase....but i would not have paid more to lock it in so.....whatever.
I have a a huge problem with not letting the handful of fixed weeks that go unused, go into the pool for those of us that own the standard platinum weeks on a first come first served basis. I imagine that most of those fixed weeks are used each year, but you will never convince me that every one does it every year. Sometimes people cant travel.....sometimes they will go to Hawaii etc. So if there are 20 units available for each of those weeks they should be made available to us, as i am pretty sure that my docs show that I have floating usage weeks 48-52, and 1-16. This seems like this issue of making the leftover weeks available to all of us could be resolved with the threat of lawsuit, if there was an attorney among us with some spare time.
