    Posted in the HGVC site:

    "Home to Navy Pier, Wrigley Field—the second-oldest Major League ballpark—more than 700 public artworks and 5,000 restaurants, Chicago is also about to become a home away from home for Club Members. That’s right, Hilton Grand Vacations is opening its first Windy City location in the top six floors of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Chicago – Magnificent Mile.

    Learn about what’s in store for the new property in Chi-town, and keep reading to get an inside scoop on HGV’s first Caribbean resort.

    Where Will it be Located?

    The property sits between Navy Pier and the Magnificent Mile, which features more than 460 stores, 275 restaurants and myriad attractions like live entertainment, artwork and museums along Michigan Avenue. Plus, it’s just a stone’s throw from other top sites including Millennium Park, Grant Park and The Chicago Theatre.

    Did you know ... ? Chicago also boasts nearly 60 museums, 8,100 acres of green space, 580 parks and 26 beaches. Whether you’re traveling with kids, friends or your sweetheart, there’s plenty to do in this Midwest hot spot.

    What are the Property’s Plans?

    HGV, alongside its purchasing partners Related Fund Management and The Chartres Lodging Group, will acquire the new property inventory in phases. That’s anticipated to begin in the second quarter of 2019.

    However, in the fourth quarter of 2018, the current property owner will begin renovating and converting the top six floors into 78 studio and one-bedroom units. These units will become the HGV property and will maintain the high HGV standards Members are accustomed to.

    When Will Sales Begin?

    Sales are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2019.

    Additional Perks

    Members will get to enjoy the hotel’s many amenities—like its on-site bar and restaurant, business and fitness centers, and outdoor pool and patio—in addition to the property’s central location.

    Big Scoop: HGV is Coming to the Caribbean!

    Beach lovers rejoice! HGV is excited to announce another sun-soaked destination and its first Caribbean resort: Hilton Grand Vacations at The Crane on the island of Barbados.

    Located on one of the top beaches in the world, The Crane is an RCI Gold Crown/Registry Collection resort founded in 1887. The Crane was Barbados’ first resort, and today it’s the oldest continuously operating resort in the entire Caribbean.

    HGV is acquiring existing one-, two- and three-bedroom suite inventory in phases from Millennium Investments Limited. What does this mean for Club Members? Sales are slated to begin during the fourth quarter of this year, with Member stays expected to begin as early as January 2019.

    Get ready to enjoy the resort’s many amenities, including a 1.5-acre cascading cliff-top pool complex, a day spa, kids’ club, gardens, and award-winning dining with seven restaurant and beverage options. Additionally, since many suites come with their own large swimming pools — like corner tower plunge pools and ground-floor infinity pools — you may enjoy taking a dip without even leaving the comfort of your suite.

    Stay tuned to the Club website and future eClub Travelers for more information about these new properties and more."

    From DFW, Barbados is about the same air travel time as Hawaii. . .

    From YYZ, it's less than half the time to Hawaii, just counting the flying time. Even better, we have direct flights to BGi from Toronto, so no additional time lost in layovers changing planes in Vancouver, SF or LA!! Not to mention that Barbados is one of our favourite Caribbean islands. Yeah, HGVC!! :thumbup: :banana:

    Flying south is better than flying east or west because there are fewer time zone changes. For those on the eastern seaboard, there is no time zone difference. It's a long haul from Calif so HI will be preferred for us, however we are looking forward to adding Barbados to our travel bucket list. 3 hours plus or minus HI or Barbados, however Cabo is only one hour ahead.

    Barbados is #1 on my wife and my travel bucket list. We are thinking of going there for our 25th anniversary in a couple of years!
