    Here is what I found out: it’s a marketing spin to get folks to buy HPP.

    1) Hyatt is not going away with the Marriott purchase.
    2) In order to participate in the Marriott Beyond program, you have to be enrolled in the Hyatt Point Program through a developer purchase. Legacy week owners are excluded.
    3) The Marriott Beyond program will only be able to access the “Explorer Collection”. Being an HPP owner who is also in the Marriott Beyond program will not have access to any other Marriott properties (no DC, MVC, ETC) “at this time”. I asked when we would have access, and he didn’t have an answer.
    4) Marriott Beyond is supposed to start in September coinciding with Marriott taking over sales of Hyatt / HPP. Again, the sales guy stressed that Hyatt properties would not be rebranded to Marriott. However, he also stressed that we should purchase HPP NOW because “once Marriott takes over sales, the cost will go up”.
    5) I specifically requested that he produced written documentation proving what he was talking about. He said they had not gotten anything printed up yet.
    6) I asked about the conversion ratio / points it would be to convert HPP points to Marriott Explorer Collection points, he said that he did not have that information.

    So, my take on this whole Marriott Beyond thing is that while there may be something coming down the line, it’s just garbage to get people to buy HPP.

    Thinking about what a waste of time this was, there is one good thing that came from it. The sales guy stressed multiple times that the Hyatt properties are not going away or being rebranded. Might be sales spin (I’ll be “BEYOND” upset if they announce the Hyatt’s are going away, spun off, rebranded, etc. ), but if anything the sales guy said was true, I think that the Hyatt properties are safe is a fact.

    Can they legally just get rid of Hyatt brand and merge it with Marriott?

    About a completely brand new brand? That would completely devalued the timeshare.

    Will this need to be negotiated on a resort by resort basis?

    I’m sure lawyers out there that are owners looked into this.

    I’m not a lawyer, please keep that in mind when reading my answer.

    Yes, not only can Marriott change the name / remove the Hyatt brand, they may have to if the licensing agreement with Hyatt does not happen. Luckily, from what I was hearing from the sales guy (cough), this is not going to happen, Hyatt will remain Hyatt.

    I doubt Marriott wants to devalue the system they just paid a massive amount of money for.

    Seems like everyone who owns the companies MVC bought is concerned about how MVC will/can/may ruin/change/keep-the-same their ownerships.

    That’s because no one wants to be Bonvoyed.

    Exactly! And it’s a good likelihood it could happen.
