Resorts in the HGVC System

Hilton Grand Vacations manages and operates two separate club membership programs:
  • Hilton Grand Vacations Club (HGVC)
  • The Hilton Club New York
The following overview is regarding only Hilton Grand Vacations Club (HGVC).


Currently, there are 58 Club resorts.

The 58 resorts are listed below and grouped into one of three categories:
  • HGVC Developed** & Managed Resorts
  • Affiliated Resorts (Managed by HGVC)
  • Affiliated Resort (Not Managed by HGVC)
**NOTE: Trump International Hotel Las Vegas sold approximately 300 condominium units to Hilton Grand Vacations


Per the 2013 Club Member Guide, an Affiliated Resort is a resort that has entered into an agreement to participate in the Club program provided it maintains our high quality standards of amenities and service.
NOTE: Some of the affiliated resorts may have limited availability due to the number of owners participating in the Club and/or the size of the resort.

Ownership, Benefits, Privileges and Club Rules

Certain facets of HGVC ownership can be distinctly different between properties, dependent on whether HGVC has built the resort, or if another developer has built the resort (an affiliate resort).

While many HGVC built resorts were typically sold as floating week ownerships, which can be used as points throughout the Hilton system, different ownership types and rules may apply. For example, in Florida, a majority of the affiliated resorts were sold offering fixed week, as well as flex week, timeshare options.

Predetermined amounts of points are assigned to all HGVC ownerships based on the following:

  • specific HGVC developer resort
  • unit size
  • unit type
  • season
  • number of ClubPoints
  • type of ownership
  • type of week

Club Members automatically receive a deposit of ClubPoints annually or biennially depending on their deeded ownership. Online HGVC accounts display a rolling three year period of available ClubPoints. Unused ClubPoints for a given year will expire at the end of the calendar year. The ClubPoints Stretching discussion addresses the various options available for Unused ClubPoints. 

You can also study Hilton’s points charts with their online HGVC Resort Directory to see how many points each season at each resort is allotted. ClubPoints do expire, but can be rescued, banked or converted into Hhonors points.



Examples
  • HGVC Developer Resort: Flamingo, SeaWorld, Lagoon Tower, etc
  • Unit Size: studio, one bedroom, two bedroom, etc
  • Unit Type: Plus, Premier, Grand, Grand Plus, Penthouse, etc
  • Season: Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze
  • ClubPoints: 2200, 3400, 4800, etc
  • Type of Ownership: Annual and Every Other Year (aka Biennial)
  • Type of Week: Float, Fixed or Event*

*Event Weeks provide guaranteed reservation privileges during specific peak travel times. For example, week #52 was sold as an event week in Hawaii, Las Vegas and Park City.

In contrast, an owner of a fixed week ownership is automatically booked their deeded week. An owner who chooses not to use their automatic home week reservation will be allotted a fixed amount of Club Points each year, based on location, size of unit and season in which they own.

HGVC built properties are also directly affiliated with RCI (Resort Club International) and SFX (San Francisco Exchange). Some HGVC affiliates have the benefit of being simultaneously affiliated with RCI, SFX and II (Interval International).

Along with your initial purchase there are ongoing annual Maintenance Fees and annual Club Dues.
Biennial owners may be billed Maintenance Fees annually or partially every other year depending on the resort. However Club Dues are billed annually to all members (including biennial ownerships!). For multi-week owners, Annual Club Dues are paid only once per year (not for each resort week).

Annual HGVC Maintenance Fees (MFs) are generally based on resort and unit size.
As a result, owners with different seasons may pay the same annual MF at the same resort.

For example, the following owners at the same resort may pay the same annual MF
  • two bedroom platinum season (7,000 annual ClubPoints)
  • two bedroom gold season (5,000 annual ClubPoints)
  • two bedroom silver season (3,500 annual ClubPoints)
  • two bedroom bronze season owner (2,500 annual ClubPoints)

For this reason, some owners choose to purchase a week in a higher season with more ClubPoints instead of one or more weeks in a lower season with less ClubPoints. NOTE: Prices are generally higher for the higher seasons compared to the lower seasons.

Additionally, Hilton affiliate owners are not required to join the Club, though they are able to sign up and pay an enrollment fee if they choose to become a Club member. This fee is currently $399 to date.

Compare this with HGVC built resort owners who are automatically enrolled as Club members and cannot choose to withdraw membership from the club. Club membership includes annual membership to RCI.

Being an HGVClub member yields distinctive benefits and can be very flexible for one’s booking requirements, and offers all of the accommodations one would come to expect in a vacation ownership.



Members may use their ClubPoints for
  • stays at the Club affiliated resorts
  • stays at the Hilton family of hotels
  • stays at additional resorts outside HGVC via partnerships with RCI & SFX
  • other types of travel via HGVC Partner arrangements (aka Club Partner Perks):
  • O.A.R.S. Adventure Travel
  • Airline Travel
  • Cruises
  • Fiesta Americana Hotels
  • Guided Journeys via Tauck
  • Forever Resorts Houseboats
  • EagleRider Motorcycles
  • El Monte RV Motorhomes
  • Walking and Biking Excursions via CW Adventures
  • The Moorings Yacht Charters
NOTE: Club Partner Perks won’t necessarily save you money. It simple allows you to apply some of your ClubPoints towards the cost.
More information about the Club Partner Perks can be found online - http://www.hgvclubprogram.com/club-perks/




HGVC Elite Membership

HGVC Elite Status is available to members who purchase a minimum of 14,000 ClubPoints directly from HGVC.
(NOTE: Some ClubPoints acquired via an Affiliate Resale Department may also qualify toward HGVC Elite Status)

There are currently three HGVC Elite Levels
  1. Elite requires 14,000 ClubPoints
  2. Elite Plus requires 24,000 ClubPoints
  3. Elite Premier requires 34,000 ClubPoints

HGVC Elite members may receive perks such as: room upgrades, daily newspaper, separate check-in area, early/late check-in/out, discounted reservation fee and discounted open season rental rates, a separate Elite Member Services telephone number, along with a number of other Elite benefits.

Elite privileges are not available at the following resorts: Fiesta Americana resorts, Club Intrawest resorts, Grand Pacific resorts, South Florida resorts, International resorts or Anderson Ocean Club.

HGVC Elite Status is not the same as Hilton HHonors status which is associated with the Hilton family of hotels. However one of the HGVC elite benefits is higher Hilton HHonors status (HHonors Gold for HGVC Elite and Elite Plus and HHonors Diamond for HGVC Elite Premier)

More information about Elite Benefits can be found online - http://www.hgvcelite.com/TermsAndConditions.aspx



Deeded Vacation Ownership 

Ownership with HGVC is a deeded, fee simple, one-week interest in a single property during a specific time of the year, or season. If the resort is HGVC built, one is allotted a fixed amount of Club Points each year, determined by the extent and type of the accommodations (i.e. the number of bedrooms in a single unit) and the season in which the ownership is deeded. HGVClub determines their seasons by breaking up weeks in the following manner:

 
        Bronze
        Silver
        Gold
        Platinum
        Holiday
 

These seasons vary based on the demand of a resort during these particular weeks. Certain weeks are sold as a fixed week that can be canceled and turned into points. 

An example of this is week 52 at The Las Vegas Strip property. It is sold as a fixed week, which is automatically reserved for the owner. The reservation can be cancelled and it will be worth the associated platinum points. 

The points associated with each season of HGVC built resort have fixed values based on the unit size and view. The unit size and the particular resort one is deeded to determines the maintenance fees. There is no discrepancy in maintenance fees for a platinum, gold, silver or bronze week at that particular property, so long as the unit size is identical. Below is a seasons chart to help assist owners in determining their timeshare ownership.

Rights to Usage

Hilton Grand Vacation Club is a points-based reservation and exchange program designed for booking and ownership flexibility. All of the HGVC seasons are referenced above, and the Club Points themselves have a multitude of uses.

An owner can:

         Reserve their home reservation for a 7-night stay in the unit size and season they own.
         Use points to book a different location, unit size, season, or # of nights (3 night minimum).
         Trade their points for another location, season, or unit size in RCI or SFX’s inventory.
         Make a reservation through RCI nightly to book individual nights.
         Use Club Perks for cruises, guided journeys, car rentals and airline tickets.
         Book Hilton Hotels with their Club Points, or Convert them to Honors Points.
         Borrow points from the following Use Year.

Home Week Reservation Window 

The Home Week Reservation Window is the first option for vacation planning. An owner can vacation at their home resort for a full week during the season, and in the type of unit that is  owned. This is the priority reservation period which begins one year prior to the start of an owner’s designated season, and extends to nine months prior to the preferred check-in date. In the event the criteria is not met for booking at one’s home resort (i.e. resort listed on deed, specified season, type of unit and reservation time), the owner will be charged a transaction fee and will only be able to make the reservation nine months ahead of time as opposed to the full year. This may occur in the event one chooses to book a different resort, or a different unit or time of the year.


Making HGVC Reservations

 Generally, HGVC has three reservation windows:

In descending order of priority and lead time:

 

Home Week

Club

Open Season

Date Range

12 months - 9 months

9 months - 1 Day

30 - 1 Days

Resort Available

Home Resort Only

Any Resort

Any Resort

Length of Stay

Full Week Stay

3 Night Stay

Minimum 2 nights stay

Cost

Full Year's ClubPoints

ClubPoints

Cash Only

Any and all Club transactions are made through HGVC Club Counselors, so all attempts to book a vacation throughout the year will go through one designated number. The Club Counselors will handle all booking requests for an owner’s home week, as well as at any other resort within the Club. Additionally, they will handle any exchanges through RCI. There are no waitlists for reserving a Hilton property, as the Club operates on a first-come-first-serve basis.


(1) Home Week Reservation Window (3 month priority booking window at your home resort only)

  • Begins 12 months prior to check-in and ends 9 months prior to check-in
  • Requires a reservation in the exact unit size and unit type (studio, 1 bedroom plus, etc) in the season (Platinum, Gold, etc) that the member purchased for the full week based on the fixed check-in date for your home resort.
  • The entire annual allotment of ClubPoints assigned to the home resort week is used.
  • The flexible point based system doesn't apply during the home week booking period. HGVC works like a floating week system during the Home Week window.
  • Only ClubPoints earned in the use year can be used in the home week window. Borrowed, Rescued or Deposited ClubPoints can not be used in the home week window. (For a discussion about these types of ClubPoints please see Section 5)

EXCEPTIONS:
(a) Members who own a designated fixed or event week will have their weeks automatically reserved each year. In order to use a fixed or event week for other vacation options available, the owner must cancel the automatic reservation.
(b) The Home Week reservation window for Hokulani is six months (instead of 3). Begins 12 months prior to check-in and ends 6 months prior to check-in. Home Week priority window of six months may be offered at additional resorts in the future.

RCI Reservations

All HGVC developer resorts are affiliated with RCI.

RCI is a timeshare exchange company. RCI offers two exchange programs – RCI Weeks and RCI Points. Resorts affiliated with RCI can participate in RCI Weeks or RCI Points or both. HGVC members have access to both exchange programs.


RCI Directory of Resorts http://www.rci.com/resort-directory/landing

For RCI Weeks inventory
  • Weeks can be booked as early as two years in advance and as late as two (2) days prior to check-in (however actual week availability varies by resort).
  • It's best to place an ongoing search request as early as possible to get in the queue. What’s normally seen online are the leftovers after all ongoing requests have been satisfied.

For RCI Points inventory
  • Weeks and/or nights can be available as early as 10 months in advance and as late as the day of check-in (however actual availability varies by resort).
  • RCI Points does not support ongoing search requests. It requires a manual search. Based on the resort, availability can change constantly.
  • To increase your odds of getting your desired travel dates it is best to start searching online as soon as the 10 month window begins to increase your odds of getting your desired travel dates (especially for peak travel dates)

RCI membership is included in the HGVC Club Dues. HGVC members use ClubPoints for RCI exchanges. HGVC has a set exchange rate for RCI exchanges (see table below). HGVC deducts ClubPoints from member’s account upon confirmation. Deposits are not required. Simply make the reservation or place an ongoing search request.
NOTE: HGVC members have access to RCI through the HGVC member website (not directly via an individual RCI account). As a result, standard RCI currencies normally associated with individual RCI accounts such as RCI Points or TPU values do not apply to HGVC members.


Number of ClubPoints Required for RCI exchanges




NOTE: Some areas are Red Season only year round (such as Hawaii, Florida, Nevada) while other areas support all three seasons (such as the Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Montana, Tennessee)

For example
RCI Resort: Vacation Club II (RCI Code #5424) in northern Michigan has the following RCI Seasons
BLUE - Mar 15, 2014 thru Apr 26, 2014
BLUE - Nov 01, 2014 thru Dec 13, 2014
RED - Jan 04, 2014 thru Mar 15, 2014
RED - May 31, 2014 thru Oct 25, 2014
RED - Dec 13, 2014 thru Dec 31, 2014
WHITE - Apr 26, 2014 thru May 31, 2014
WHITE - Oct 25, 2014 thru Nov 01, 2014


Cancellation Policy:
Cancellation of a RCI reservation will result in forfeiture of the Reservation Fee.
In addition, cancellation made with the timeframes listed below will results in the loss of ClubPoints used to confirm the reservation:
  1. 30 to 15 days in advance of the check-in date will result in the loss of 25% of the ClubPoints.
  2. 14 to 6 days in advance of the check-in date will result in the loss of 50% of the ClubPoints
  3. 5 days or less in advance of the check-in date will result in the loss of 100% of the ClubPoints

ClubPoints from a current or future use year will be returned to the Club Member’s HGVC account.
ClubPoints from previous use years may be deposited to RCI for a fee.


RCI Cash Rental options
There is no exchange fee required.
  1. RCI Extra Vacation - available by phone only (HGVC’s web portal doesn’t support this online feature offered to all RCI members)
  2. RCI Last Call - available online or by phone (less than 6 weeks before check-in)
  3. RCI Open Season - available by phone only (RCI Nightly Rentals can be paid for with cash starting 90 days out. It's my understanding from TUG threads that RCI's Cash Rental Rates are the same prices as HGVC Open Season rates but I have not confirmed this.)

NOTE: There are two major exchange companies (Interval International and RCI). Both require resort affiliation in order to participate. HGVC Developer Resorts are only affiliated with RCI. However some of the affiliated HGVC resorts are also affiliated with Interval International.

Independent Timeshare Exchange Companies
HGVC members can also exchange their timeshare week directly with several smaller independent timeshare exchange companies (such as SFX, Trading Place International, Dial an Exchange, Platinum Interchange, etc). These companies don’t require HGVC affiliation in order to join. Members can independently deposit a week into these timeshare exchange companies by simply making a reservation, obtaining the appropriate guest certificate and provding the information to the exchange company. The rules vary by exchange company but some may offer free and/or discounted membership fees, bonus weeks, cash rentals and/or lower exchange fees. More information can be found on the TUG forums for each of the independent timeshare exchange companies.

Here are links to some of the independent exchange companies:

HHonors Reservations

Hilton Grand Vacations Club (HGVC) and Hilton HHonors are two separate programs.

Club Members have two options to use HGVC ClubPoints with HHonors.

(1) Transfer your ClubPoints from one program to another (HGVC ClubPoints to HHonors points)
PROs: All Club Members receive 25 HHonors points for each HGVC ClubPoint. (except for the following units at West 57th Street only – penthouse units receive 30 HHonors points, One Bedroom and studio premier receive 40 HHonors points and studio plus receive 50 HHonors points).

CONS: Regular Club Members cannot transfer/convert HGVC ClubPoints to HHonors points in the current year. Only Elite Plus and Premier members can convert HGVC ClubPoints in the current year. Everyone else must plan ahead and request conversion before Dec 31 of the current year, for the following year's allocation of HGVC ClubPoints. HGVC ClubPoints are not deposited into a Club Member’s HHonors account until the first week of January of the following year.

NOTE: Conversion may be for less than the entire annual allotment of ClubPoints. Converted HHonors points may not be converted back to HGVC ClubPoints.

(2) Make Hotel Reservations using HGVC ClubPoints
PROs: Club Members can use a combination of HHonor points and HGVC ClubPoints (from the current year and/or borrow from next year) to make their hotel reservations

CONs: Club Members receive 20 HHonors points for each HGVC ClubPoint (5 points less per HGVC ClubPoint for not planning in advance)

NOTE: HGVC ClubPoints can not be returned to into a Club Member’s HGVC account. If a hotel reservation is cancelled, the Club Member will be credited with HHonors points into their HHonors account.

TIP: Do not hoard HHonors Points - Plan any hotel reward trips sooner rather than later.
A great hotel exchange deal today may not be a great deal tomorrow due to the following
  • Maintenance Fees will continue to increase over time decreasing the exchange value
  • HHONOR reward point requirement will continue to increase over time which will eventually impact the number of hotel reward nights
  • Per the HGVC Member Guide, the HGVC to HHonors conversion rate is subject to change without notice and the benefits available through these programs are subject to change, suspension or discontinuation at any time without prior notice.

THE HILTON HHONORS PROGRAM:
Hilton HHonors determines point requirement for each of their hotels - http://hhonors3.hilton.com/en/explore/index.html

As HGVC Club Members, we are automatically given HHonors Silver Elite status.
HHonors Silver, Gold and Diamond elite members receive every 5th night free on Standard Reward Stays of five consecutive nights or more (up to four free nights on a stay of 20 consecutive nights.). Any qualifying HHonors booking receives the discount automatically. The Fifth Night Free benefit applies only to standard rooms.
NOTE: The 5th night free reward replaces the old VIP/GLON rewards.

There's also an exclusive 4-night stays rewards at hotels in categories 5 through 10 (aka AXON reward), available only to US-based Hilton American Express credit cards (both the regular and Surpass versions).

If an ownership involves a deeded week, one will have a season that is referenced within that week. The season will determine both the size of the unit one is able to book as well as the number of points needed to book said unit. If owners would like to learn more about seasons with HGVC, they can feel free to follow the points charts found below in this article, or email any of the authors of this article.

  1. No later than December 1 of each year, Club Members may elect to participate in ClubPoints Protection program on an annual basis to preserve any remaining ClubPoints
  2. Club Members must select one of two automatic protection preference deposit option per account
