For starters, the hotel is connected to the Miracle Mile mall, a circular building with over 170 shops and restaurants. The Elara shares this shopping center with Planet Hollywood, which means Elara visitors have easy access to all of Planet Hollywood’s fine eateries and casinos.

In the rooms, owners can take advantage of separate bedroom suites that include a furnished kitchen and dining area. Rooms exploit the tower’s view of Las Vegas with floor to ceiling windows and each room has a 42-inch HDTV for those nights you want to stay in.

The hotel features a fully equipped fitness center and relaxing outdoor pool, complete with the Oasis Bar & Grill. When the sun is hot, one can easily sit under a cabana with a refreshing beverage and revitalize before the evening’s events begin.

Whether you prefer a more upscale dinner or something low key, the Miracle Mile has an abundance of options for you and your date, or the whole family. Start the night right with Pampas Churrascaria Brazilian Grille or take it easy at Sin City Brewing Co. before catching a show at the Miracle Mile’s theatre for the ultimate variety performance. All of this and more is available right outside your hotel door.

For animal lovers, the Shark Reef at Mandalay bay will inspire and mesmerize youngsters and adults alike. Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage is another great stop, featuring white lions, tigers, and dolphins. Oh my!

Hilton Hawaiian Village Gets New Timeshare Tower: the Grand Islander

By | Timeshares in the News | No Comments

Someone has plans for a 37-story timeshare tower in the Hilton Hawaiian Village at Waikiki, and it’s none other than Blackstone. Purchasing the property from Hilton Worldwide, Blackstone will develop the land at the corner of Kalia Road and Paoa Place, nestled right in next to the rest of Hilton’s Hawaiian Village at Waikiki. Whether Blackstone plans to purchase the entire village or just the corner space where the new timeshare tower is planned is as yet unclear.


Hilton-hawaiian-village-timeshare-resaleHilton Hawaiian Village at Waikiki has 22 oceanfront acres of Waikiki’s widest stretch of beach and offers guests as many as five pools (including the Waikiki’s longest water slide) and twenty restaurants and bars. Timeshare owners who have stayed at Hilton Hawaiian Village at Waikiki have never complained about its exotic wildlife, gardens, ponds and waterfalls interspersed throughout the grounds, or its world class spa, children’s program, or programmatic activities like Hula lessons or morning exercise classes. Hilton Hawaiian Village at Waikiki is truly one of those unique places that has something for everyone.


So Blackstone’s plans for a new timeshare tower come as no surprise, and Hilton Worldwide’s president and CEO Christopher Nassetta confirmed the rumors of the purchase, saying that the deal for Blackstone’s timeshare at the Hilton Hawaiian Village at Waikiki is mutually beneficial: the location for the new tower was previously used by Hilton as a loading dock. With this transaction, both parties get more revenue and long term value.



And while the Hilton Hawaiian Village at Waikiki has consistently demonstrated excellence in timesharing customer service, travelers to Hawaii might be interested in another Hilton Hawaiian property: the HGVC Waikoloa Beach Resort. Hilton’s Hawaiian properties are not to be overrated and if you’re interested in Hawaiian timeshare resale, contact an agent today to decide whether a Hilton Hawaiian Village timeshare resale could be within your grasp.

According to this photo, it appears that pretty much the only sane place to be right now is Florida. But travelers up and down the east coast and in much of the eastern half of the US won’t be getting there any time soon, thanks to another large winter storm system settling over the country and dumping record snowfalls and inches of ice below. Ironically named Pax, the system is screeching travel to a halt by air and devastating roadways in Washington, D.C and around New York, and creating hazardous road conditions from North Carolina to Maine, according to an article in the Chicago Tribune


So…many of us a dreaming of Florida, and other sunnier, warmer places. Winter often gives us daydreaming blues, but it can be a great motivator to plan for that summer vacation when actually escaping the cold becomes difficult due to terrible travel conditions.


Luckily, Florida timeshare resales exist in affordable abundance, and with options from names like Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt and Disney, travelers can be sure that they have access to the best of the best in timeshare resort properties.


Disney timeshare resales are a great getaway for the whole family, and adventurous families can even stay in a treehouse. Hilton’s Sea World timeshare resales offer the flexibility of points and start at $1,900. For a one-time purchase price, that’s often less than many of us spend on vacations every year! Want an Ocean Front room in the luxury of a Marriott timeshare resale? Check out Marriott’s Harbour Lake Lahaina Towers for a deliciously sunny, warm, and sea-salted air vacation (sounds pretty perfect when your window shows you this dreary view):

Timeshare Market: insights into economy

By | General Timeshare Information, Timeshares in the News | No Comments

Not only a fun destination and place to get jazzed up or unwind, Las Vegas is also the seat of a thriving accommodation market place, and in this article, analyst Tim O’Reiley looks at timeshares in Vegas and across the U.S.


You don’t have to read the whole thing, but if you’re interested in the intersection of timeshare and economic growth, it’s an interesting perspective. O’Reiley talks about how increased travel nationwide is giving timeshare developers a new life after the 2009 market fall. What’s worrisome, however is his point that “many developers tap Wall Street to bundle their sales contracts into securities that are sold to investors, similar to what happens with home mortgages.”


While that’s not exactly breaking news, what it means for the timeshare industry (and people who want to buy a timeshare), is that buying from the developer is potentially dangerous, much like the housing market of 2008-2009. O’Reiley also reiterates that the gain from the developer is the 18% interest rate on financing a new timeshare purchase.


Cities like Orlando and Las Vegas are tapping into the increased travel rates of Americans and building new units at a rapid pace. Hilton is expanding Trump International Hotel, Grandview at Las Vegas is building a new tower, and the expansion of Marriott’s Grand Chateau will add over 200 units to its Vegas property.


What this means for timeshare shoppers that you’ll find higher prices on a new unit at the Grand Chateau or Grandview. What it means for timeshare resale buyers is you may have to wait a year for those units to come on the resale market, but they’ll eventually make it here, and when they do, that developer overhead will be drastically reduced.


Buying timeshares resale makes so much more sense than paying for “new” timeshare units from the developer. By purchasing on the resale market, not only do you get up to 60% off developer prices, you avoid the massive risk of an 18% interest loan and can plan for maintenance fees that you will be able to afford every year. And with Premier Timeshare Resale, nobody pays upfront fees. Ever.

Hilton: how the Garden Inn saved us

By | Reviews to Share | No Comments

After four nights camping in Yellowstone National Park, and another two in Grand Teton, we were stinky and sore. And a long drive from Jackson Hole, WY to Billings, MT is enough to make anyone cranky and tired. But again, we were saved by civilization! This time by Hilton’s line of superb roadside accommodations: their Garden Inns.


The one in Billings was suited to our needs: laundry for our smelly camp clothes, an indoor pool for the baby to get out her pent-up energy after a long car ride, and a hotel bar for the parents, complete with gourmet food and local brews. (Not to mention 24-hour business center, fitness facilities, and conference rooms available).


Hilton has a fabulous reputation for a reason: they are consistent in their provision of upscale service, and often at affordable prices. For the weary traveler, these Garden Inns, with over 550 locations worldwide, offer a haven of rest and rejuvenation.


For the loyal Hilton customer, Hilton timeshares offer even more amenities and vibrant locations. Hilton Grand Vacations timeshare resales are available in Hawaii, Florida, Las Vegas, California, Utah, and other international locations. Click on the link to see a listing of PTR’s current Hilton timeshare resales.


If you own and want to sell a Hilton Grand Vacations property contact our licensed agents—eager buyers may await you, as Hilton’s name carries weight and desirability.
