Sorry, my writing regarding the 1:1 was not clear. There will not be a 1:1 StarOption to Marriott DC point exchange, that is correct. What I meant to relay is that there may not be a 1 night : 1 night exchange. In other words, it might take 9 or 10 nights worth of StarOptions from a "less valuable property" for a week in a Marriott property presumably even in the same "season".There will absolutely be no 1:1 conversion ratio from StarOptions to Marriott DC points. Not a chance. More like 30:1 or even worse.
