If you own a Westgate Planet Hollywood timeshare and have been wondering what is happening, call it Elara – Hilton Grand Vacations Club newest member.
Here’s an excerpt from BusinessWire’s report: “In November, 2011, LV Tower 52, LLC (“LV Tower”) acquired a controlling interest in Planet Hollywood Towers by Westgate and appointed Hilton Grand Vacations to rebrand the property and provide future vacation ownership sales and marketing services. Most recently LV Tower appointed HGV to oversee the resort’s condominium association, timeshare interval reservations, and on-site resort maintenance and resort operations. The more than 17,000 existing Westgate owners of the property will continue to enjoy the full ownership rights and benefits associated with their original purchase from Westgate Resorts as well as their exchange privileges with Interval International. ”
In addition, all future sales for Elara timeshares will be conducted by and sold as Hilton Grand Vacation Club ownerships.
This brings the Westgate Planet Hollywood story to a close. But a new chapter is developing with Elara as the largest single timeshare building in the world (at its opening in 2009). Plus there is a huge amount of anticipation that Elara should emerge as one of Hilton’s premiere timeshare resorts. Hilton Grand Vacation Club already has a strong presence in Las Vegas with 48,000 club members. The HGV Club established itself in Las Vegas with the Flamingo in 1994 and has been growing ever since.
