All,

Thanks to LisaRex for the suggestion.

This is not a Sighting, this is a Trade Power Experiment.

In various II accounts, I have SVV Bella 1BR Platinum and 1BR Gold Plus, WKV 1BR Platinum Plus, Worldmark and Marriott Maui Ocean Club.

Can I ask others to do a quick Interval Search to see who can sight 2BR units at Marriott Shadow Ridge in Palm Desert, for Summer 2016

I see the following at Shadow Ridge (MRD) --- using 2016 vintage "deposits":

WKV 1BR Platinum -- can see 2BR units in July 2016
SVV 1BR Platinum -- can see 2BR units in July 2016
SVV 1BR Gold Plus -- can see only 1BR units (no 2BRs) in July 2016
Worldmark 1BR Float -- can see only 1BRs in July 2016
Worldmark 2BR Float -- can see 2BR units in July 2016
Maui Ocean Club Studio -- can see only 1BRs in July and August 2016
Maui Ocean Club 1BR -- can see 2BRs in July and August 2016 (presumably under Pref)
Marriott Willow Ridge 1BR -- can see 2BRs in July and August 2016
Marriott Willow Ridge Studio -- can see only 1BRs in July and August 2016

I was surprised to see the August 2BRs with the MOC, but think it has to be preference related, not power related.

Can others do a quick search? I'm happy to repeat with a Starwood property, but couldn't find anything that had bulk banked/had deep deposits.

Thank you.

Best,

Greg

I am surprised that your 1BR SVV gold plus does not see 2BR in July at Shadow Ridge. I checked using 1BR SVR gold plus (this floats 1-52, blended) and it could see many 2BR in July. Same with 1BR SDO platinum. Yes I have a unicorn 2BR SDO platinum.

That is very interesting -- the Bella Gold appears to be a Like-for-Like trader only and can't uptrade to a 2BR. The 1-52 Gold Float appears more powerful than the seasoned Gold Float, which makes sense.

Thanks very much!

Best,

Greg

GregT, "MSD" isn't the code for Marriott Shadow Ridge. It's either MR2 (Enclaves) or MRD (Villages).

My 2015 platinum SVV Bella 2 bdrm L/O sees:

At MR2, studios, 1 bdrms and 2 bdrms throughout the summer
At MRD, studios, 1 bdrms and 2 bdrms throughout the summer

My 2015 platinum 1 bdrmA sees 2 bdrms in July. However, my 2016 1 bdrmA and 1bdrm B only sees the first week or two of June, but all sizes. How odd that 2016 has less exchange power than 2015. (II is soooo quirky!)

Hope this helps!

Very interesting. I just tried my 2016, both of my units can pull 2bedrooms in July still.

SVR Cascades (2BR L/O, Gold Select) sees studios/1BR/2BR in Jul, and nothing in Aug, regardless of whether I used either side of the lockoff or the entire unit
