I will try to answer your question but I am not the expert but have stayed at many MVC and also own two weeks in Aruba. If you booked your room as a non-owner directly through Marriott then yes, you will receive points and elite nights. If you obtained this room through a third party (i.e. you rented it from an owner) then no you will not receive points or elite nights. If you are using your own week (i.e. your an owner) you will not receive points but will receive elite nights.
Hope that helps.
I am not an MVC owner, and I've stayed at several MVC properties both on paid and points stays (Maui, Orlando, Hilton Head).
Points are earned at MVC for non-owners like any other Marriott brand.
As noted in the graphic above, 10 points per $1 spent on room rate and qualifying charges (i.e. food and beverage).You'll also get your elite bonus and Platinum arrival gift of 500 points. Likewise you will get elite night credits for any nights stayed. It is possible to redeem MR points for stays at MVC properties, though it can be difficult to get specific dates, as MVC owners get priority. Only after their choices are made, do properties open up remaining room inventory to points stays.
A few areas where MVC locations are different. First, there are no upgrades. Don't even bother to ask. MVC doesn't do it. Similarly, breakfast is not offered to Gold or Platinum guests (no lounge, no breakfast vouchers, nothing). Oh, and there is no late checkout. MVC is exempt from the late checkout guarantee. Some of the fine print can be found here, though you have to dig in a ways. Marriott Rewards® Terms and Conditions
For the curious, MVC was spun off as a separate company in 2011 and is headquartered in Orlando.
Yes, MVCs are notorious about checkout times. Not sure what it is about those specifically, but have been a guest many times at these properties (where a friend was an owner), and it is always, always, not one minute later for check out.
My wife and I just spent 2 nites at the MVCI Desert Springs/Enclaves in Palm Desert for T-day. I have never had an MVCI Resort extent a checkout time, until this trip. Normal check-in is 4 PM but they did not get us our room assignment until 5:45 PM they offered a $50 onsite credit with a 2 hour delay on checkout. I was very happy to learn that we would be able to charge anything at the JW Marriott Palm Desert back to the Enclaves, since we were participating in the T-day buffet at the JW. I was not able to take advantage of the 2 hour delay on check-out since we wanted to get back to Phoenix. We have already received credit for the 2 MVCI nites along with MR points for the stay on my MR account. Just a note, the MVCI Pulse San Diego (a converted hotel) has a noon checkout. When I asked about this the SD Pulse said it was because they did not have full kitchens, like the resorts, and took less time to turn around.
Hi All - If members book a stay at a standard rate through Marriott channels, it will be eligible for credit. If it is booked through a third party (such as Expedia or Interval International, or renting the villa from an MVCI owner) it would not be eligible for credit. If you are an owner and stay during your ownership week, you would receive Elite nights but no points for the room rate. On any of these stay types, if they have incidental items charged to the room, they would receive points for those charges. Feel free to let us know of any additional questions you may have.
