    I saw the Hyatt Ka’anapali offer and wanted to understand a bit more about the Hyatt program and how it compares to Vistana. In particular during the HRPP are you able to book at properties other than your own? If so , how does this work since you don’t enter the club period until 6 months after the Ownership week starts?

    We own both. Hyatt is a better value as far as exchanging in II. It is fairly easy to exchange within Hyatt except for resorts such as Northstar and Siesta Key which have fewer units. Hyatt has more fees than Vistana reservation fees, split week fees and cancellation fees but if we were to buy a 4th week we would pick up another Hyatt because it goes further when exchanging. But who knows how this will change when Marriott decides how to mix it up

    To add on to my post we typically find units to exchange internally at 6 months out. There is also a wait list which works quite well. You can get on it before your points come through though your request wont be filled until you have your points and have paid your MFs

    During HRPP you are able to give up your deeded week and make the HRPP points CUP. If your MF’s are paid you are able to do this easily on line.

    My deeded weeks are 26 and 29 and I have to call in to pay my fees so I can book units internally at the beginning of HRPP period.

    OK, so you can try and book a unit at another HRC property 12-6 months out, but if you do so, you lose your ability to take your specified/owned week with any guarantee. Is that right?

    Yes during HRPP you can book another HRC property. Once you book you lose the right to use your deeded week and any leftovers become CUP points.

    While you are looking you still have your week in HRPP if that is what you want.

    There are other nuances such as you may book your deeded week as a split week using the midweek days and using the points from a part of your week. If you own a two bedroom lock off you can book the studio and use the leftover points to book other HRC properties. So there are many different things you can do depending on your deeded unit and points available.

    My preference is to never let points go to LCUP. It is too restrictive to use the points last minute. I prefer to transfer them to EEE to use in Interval International.
