    Do MVC owners pay the $40 a day for parking or is it included? Is this based on 24-hour period or calendar day?
    23 April 2017|
    Answer Show all 3 answers
    Response from MarriottVacationClub | Property representative |
    The current parking rates are $34 for owners and $42 for guest. On check out day to avoid any additional cost, your car should be removed from the parking garage no later than noon.

    We are staying at Custom House this June through a MVC Club exchange. I believe at one tine when we stayed there they said we were able to use the pool at the Marriott Long Wharf. Is that still available

    Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately hotel guests of Marriott's Vacation Club Pulse at Custom House in Boston do not have access to use the pool at Marriott Long Wharf.
