my husband and I have been paying for a 10,000 $ timeshare in Orlando for 15 years,, we've never used it. First of all we were never informed that we were actually signing a mortgage on a hotel room. Secondly we were not informed that we could only use it 4 months out of the year. Initially we were told we could use it alternate years, now we are being told we have to book a year in advance to use it and still only in the four months which they consider off season. We also pay property tax and common charges on a space we've never been allowed to use. Over the course of the years we've paid in excess of 25,000$ for a 10,000 $ room that we've never been able to use and we can't get in touch with anyone in Marriot Headquarters to explain this to us. I realize the meaning of Caveat Emptor but is this the kind of business that Marriot Hotels is running.
