    I thought II had a secretive formula to determine the value of the week you trade in and then depending on the value they determined what inventory they show you (all done by software) and then that’s when points come in. Only after their formulas had determined the value of your week to comparable inventory.

    What you are saying is that my Maui Christmas week has the same value in II as any other Hyatt Diamond week. Does not seem right?

    AFAIK Hyatt points coming from a Diamond 3br Maui Christmas week and from a studio mountain mud season week, have no distinction in II whatsoever and can see the same exchange inventory.

    Ok all about points inside and outside.

    Internally within Hyatt, can I put in a request for multiple locations/weeks before I move into CUP period? Or they won’t confirm unless I decline my home resort first.

    The number of requests is not limited. Irrespective of the number of requests you make, when one of them becomes available various criteria must be met:
    - You are first on the request list (or there is no request list)
    - You have sufficient points to fill the request
    - The credit card you provided when making the request is valid

    If you have not confirmed usage of your HRPP owned unit-week, those points will be used. Accordingly, your HRPP status will end and your owned unit-week will become available to HRC members. You don't have to take any action on HRPP confirmation. Any balance of points will remain in CUP.

    You can put in multiple locations/weeks requests during HRPP or CUP - you do not have to decline your home resort to make the multiple requests. If one of your requested locations/weeks becomes available during your HRPP period, the Hyatt system will automatically convert your HRPP week to CUP and use those points to confirm your requested reservation. If you do not reserve your home resort 6 months prior to it's check in date, the week will automatically move from HRPP to CUP.

    In a past thread I've read that owning at a particular club does not help with trading for another property at that club. For example, I own a 1 bedroom at Carmel, but I've heard that wouldn't enable me to have preference in getting a 2 bedroom at Carmel (preference over non-Carmel Hyatt owners).

    I know this post was about a week ago, but I own a Carmel and I see many more than 48 units available. Thus, I'm wondering if that particular convention wisdom is incorrect. Specifically, if you own at a particular club and club owners at that club convert their points to II early (or exchange their week), wouldn't that property be visible to other club members at that resort but not club members at the other resorts until the HRPP expires?

    Our of curiosity, can someone who doesn't own at Carmel tell me how many units they see today when they search for all nights, any unit type with the parameters 8-24-19 to 8-23-20.

    The only type of owner preference I have ever heard of is at Aspen, and it’s not availability, but preferential room assignment. Ie, an Aspen owner using points for booking (not their owner unit week) will get a better room assignment than a non-Aspen owner. I own at Carmel as well, and have asked if the same thing applies there... ie, will I get an ocean view vs a garden view, and the answer was first booked gets first choice.

    Do you pay the Hyatt club dues every year if you only own on EOY unit? I suspect so but wanted to confirm that. We are considering an EOY Pinon Point Gold season worth 1,880 points. Any other insights would be appreciated.

    Best regards.

    Club dues, yes - maintenance fees, no. I think club dues are around $157 right now. Personally I would prefer 2,000 or 2,200 points to get nominal trading power.
