Have to agree with all the comments about the new Marriott Rewards program. Have been loyal to Marriott for years, but will not be the case anymore. All of my friends that travel regularly and use Marriott have said the same thing. Also a MVCI owner and REALLY unhappy. The number of points we receive for our unit most certainly needs to go up if this program remains.
I agree on the point reimbursement for timeshare properties. They need to increase to AT LEAST equal the point amounts for 7-day stay at an equivalent point level hotel. You loose 2-3 days if you trade your timeshare for points.
