Resort will debut in January 2016 as Hilton’s fourth timeshare property in Orlando
Hilton Grand Vacations announces its debut of Las Palmeras, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club resort in Orlando. Hilton is adding this distinctive timeshare project to its portfolio to offer its members and guests an additional Orlando resort that delivers best-in-class service and exceptional vacation experiences.
The existing property will be converted into 226 luxurious timeshare units, featuring one- and two-bedroom, condominium-style villas, in addition to well-appointed studios. The property will begin operating as a Hilton resort in January 2016. Renovation of the units will begin in summer of 2016 to ensure the accommodations meet the level of expectation people have with the Hilton brand and is anticipated to be complete that November.
“Our Club membership has experienced significant growth,” says Mark Wang, Hilton Grand Vacations president. “Bringing Las Palmeras into our Hilton portfolio of outstanding resorts increases the value we provide to our owners and guests.”
Located in the heart of Orlando’s thriving tourism district, the property is ideally situated between Universal Boulevard and the city’s famous International Drive, adjacent to the Orange County Convention Center and minutes from Orlando’s celebrated theme parks. Plans include a spacious lobby and arrival entry, heated outdoor pool, new waterslide and splash pad, whirlpool spa, fitness center, business center, conference room, lobby bar, pool bar, restaurant and a host of additional amenities.
This upscale resort will provide a highly desirable vacation destination with elegantly appointed suites, each furnished with the extensive comforts of home. Las Palmeras, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club resort will also offer immediate access to a variety of dining, shopping and entertainment venues, as well as renowned golf courses and all the excitement Orlando has to offer. Sales of vacation ownership interests are anticipated to begin in February 2016.
