I've seen this information here, and certainly understand the difference between booking directly with the hotel vs. timeshare folks. Your room can be switched, you stand a chance of an upgrade, if there's something wrong, they're very attentive, etc.
But what about travelocity and the like?
I pulled the trigger the other night on our Signature at MGM balcony suite, the other night. Now I'm ready to book the flight and it would be a substantial savings to book the two together.
