Yes - for the first 30 days, Starwood owners have first priority for Starwood deposits.
That being said:
-Starwood has 100% control over what is being deposited - not owners.
-Starwood is not depositing much these days, and with the purchase by Interval, we don't know how that will change.
-When they do deposit a Starwood resort - it's off-season. They don't deposit high season/school holidays.
At this point in time, I would not buy a Starwood II trader for at least 2 years, until we see what changes are coming from the sale to Interval.
