Forget any special perks as I was told by James at the front desk of Marriot Canyon Villas in Phoenix. I was able to receive an 11:30 am checkout. WOW. Glad to be heading to the JW Marriott where they value our status as people who spend as much time in their hotels as we do at home! Last time for me at the Vacation Club...oh and be prepared for them to push the "Vacation Club" sales pitch on you while you are there.
