    HGVC Booking Window.png

    IN SUMMARY


    HGVC owners have three reservation windows:

    (1) Home Week window (for most HGVC resorts this is a 3 month period beginning 12 months prior to check-in and ends 9 months prior to check-in)

    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 which means from 12 months to 9 months before check-in, if you want to book a stay during the home week window then you must reserve the exact unit size and type in the season that you purchased (for example studio, 1 bedroom plus, etc) for the exact number of days owned (full week, 4 nights, etc) based on the fixed checkin date at your home resort. There is no flexibility.
    NOTE: Only points earned in the use year can be used in the home week window. Borrowed or Saved points can not be used in the home week window.
    NOTE: It has been reported that Hokulani sold 4 night intervals in addition to one week intervals (link)

    Home Week Window Exceptions:

    • The Home Week window for the Hokulani and Grand Islander is for 6 month period (instead of 3 months) beginning 12 months prior to check-in and ends 6 months prior to check-in.
    (2) Club Reservation window (for most HGVC resorts this begins 9 month prior to check-out through 1 day prior to check-in; requires a three night minimum)

    HGVC works like a point based system during the Club Reservation window and generally begins 9 months before checkout for most resorts. During the Club reservation window anyone can book any season, resort (including their home resort), unit size and/or type for any number of days (minimum of 3 nights). This means all HGVC resort owners have an equal chance at booking at any HGVC resort during the Club Reservation window.

    Club Reservation Window Exceptions:
    • The Club Season window for the Hokulani and Grand Islander begins 6 months prior to check-out (instead of 9 months)
    • The Club Season window for the "By Hilton Club" Resorts (West 57st, The District, The Residences) begins 44 days prior to check-out (instead of 9 months)
    • "The Hilton Club - New York" is not avaiable to HGVC owners
    (3) Open Season Rental Reservation window (cash rentals begin 30 days before check-out through 1 day prior to check-in; requires a two night minimum; available to members for their personal use only).

    Open Season Exceptions:

    • Open Season Rental Rates for Penthouse units at the Grand Islander are only available to penthouse owners deeded at that property
    • Open Season Rental Rates for Penthouse units at the Grand Waikikian are only available to penthouse owners deeded at that property
    • Open Season Rental Rates for The Hilton Club - New York only is available to owners deeded at that property
    • Open Season Rental Rates for the "By Hilton Club Resorts" (West 57st, The District, The Residences) are only available to owners deeded at that property

    By Hilton Club Owners have up to five reservation windows

    They have the three HGVC reservation windows listed above plus the two listed below for their club resorts.
    EXCEPTION: West 57th owners only have a 15 day Open Season window at their home resort

    (4) Home Resort Priority window begins 9 months prior to check-out and ends either 45 days prior to checkout (for West 57th) or 60 days prior to checkout (for the District & Residences) depending on the resort.

    This window allows "By Hilton Club" owners the ability to use the flexible point based system during their exclusive home resort booking period where they only have to compete with owners at their own resort. They can book any unit size or type in any season for any number of nights (minimum of 1 nights) at their home resort during this window.
    (5) By Hilton Club Priority window begins 59 days prior to check-out and ends either 45 days prior to checkout. This window is only available to the District & Residences

    This 15 day priorty exchange window allows both the District & Residences owners the ability to exchange into each other's property without competing with others. They can book any unit size or type in any season for any number of nights (minimum of 1 nights) at the District & Residences during this window.
