Hi everyone,
Which of these two have the best trading power? What are the other beach Marriott Resort that you would recommend that would give me the best trading power?
Thanks for your feedback.

I don't believe there is any question that Maui has the best trading power. But it also has the highest price & MFs. It also may have the most troubles in trying to reserve a high demand week.

IMHO, Don't buy a high priced Marriott for its trading power, but because it is where you want to visit. If you're buying a Marriott for trading mostly, the collective thought here seem to be a resale, Williamsburg Manor Club, plat with lockoff, gives you the best trading options at the best price.

Good Luck
