    Do HGVC resorts strictly enforce occupancy limits? I have some young kids and 1 bedrooms would typically work for us, but don't want to get somewhere and not be let in....

    Goaline3, this is an old question. It's not Hilton but law that sets the limit.
    I will bet that some did not observe it. It's said you may have to go out immediately,
    once Hilton finds occupancy limit is broken. No one here recommend that you should
    stay in one bedroom with your family.

    SOME young kids? Is that what you put down in your 1040 Income Tax return?

    I have resort where a STUDIO allows 2 people and another resort which allows 4 people. If you are booking stay or buying, call the resort first.

    As part of your reservation agreement you have to indicate how many people are going to be In the room (that includes babies). Exceed that limit and you run the risk of being evicted. You may get away with it some times and you may get kicked out mid stay(or even refused a key entirely ) with your points for that stay being forfeit.

    Being "homeless" on a vacation might be a fun family story you and the family can talk about for years. :)

    Out of curiosity, how often do people get kicked out?

    I am at the point that I need to get two rooms at hotels or two bedroom units, which is perfectly fine. The days of getting rooms with two double beds are gone. My problem is that we have a 15 yr old girl and 11 yr old boy. They don't want to be in the same room. So, we have the option of forcing them to sleep toghether or have a boys and girls rooms.

    HGVC does not have hall monitors who watch how many peep come+go.
    Unless you displayed your crew at check-in, you prolly could get away with it.
    However, noisy neighbors may complain about the racket your rug-rats create.

    I thought some incidents were reported at this BBS. Maybe I am wrong. And I would say very few.
    But as I have seen responses to this occupancy limit question, some are easy-going and others are very strict.
    Neighbors may report their findings to the front desk. Personally I do not want to spend my vacation, facing
    any risk of losing my accommodation.

    Here is a excerpt from the club rule and you could notice that HGVC denies its responsibility to check the status of guests
    or they say they are not counting the number of guests because it's your responsibility.

    Occupancy Restrictions. Each resort
    establishes occupancy restrictions for specific
    accommodations. Information concerning
    the recommended and maximum number
    of occupants per unit type, available checkin
    days and restrictions on the minimum
    number of nights per reservation is available
    at club.hiltongrandvacations.com. Failure to
    abide by occupancy restrictions may result
    in additional charges or denial of access.
    Subject to applicable law, no pets, other
    than service animals, are allowed at Affiliated
    Resorts managed by Hilton Grand Vacations
    Management, LLC. Affiliated Resorts are
    private property. As such, the Club reserves
    the right to restrict access to any persons;
    however, the Club has no obligation, duty
    or other requirement to screen or otherwise
    confirm the status of guests or prospective
    guests.

    Unless you get ridiculous with the people count, it isn't the law. The same studios from an HGVC resort is also as hotel rooms on Hilton.com, and the ones with 2 double beds can have 4 people. A number of resorts don't have elevator issues, so that can't be a problem, and

    It may not be the law, but a resort can still enforce it. Trying to fight it, saying it's not law won't get you far.

    Put it this way. A resort, hotel, etc., has the right to have an occupancy limit. They also have the right to enforce it. Whether they do, or not, may depend on a lot of factors. Personally, I wouldn't try to push it.

    Interesting article from a few years back:

    I have occupancy limits in my DAY JOB. It is the state FIRE CODE which controls what that number is. In my state, it begins with the square foot of the sleeping area. I have 2 bdr units with 3 person limit. And I have 2bdr units with 4 persons.

    And there is NO WAY I am going to sign a contract for MORE people to be on the lease than that state fire code allows.

    There are a few places that give out wristbands for pool access. Kings' Land does this. You can only get a band for the maximum amount of people ALLOWED in the unit.

    So do you not let someone in your party use the pool complex?

    I wouldn't want to get all the way to Hawaii and find out I could not stay OR that we could not all use the pool.

    There is always someone who thinks the rules don't apply to them. If an infant only I am likely OK with, as they are not tasking the pool and infrastructure the resort has in place by having more people than expected. But I have had a neighbor who would pack 8 kids with air mattresses on the floor in a room that the occupancy limit was 2, and demand access to all the facilities for everyone too.

    For wristband limits (not that I endorse this), take turns at the pool.
    Showing up with your entire entourage in the lobby is not a good idea.
    It only takes one slip-up (or complaint) to end up on the street.

    I attended a timeshare presentation last Monday and bought a one-week platinum studio in Las Vegas. I asked the seller several times about the fact that we have 2 kids, and would 4 people be allowed in a studio? She assured me it would be fine!

    Looking through the documents more closely afterwards, I found that the occupancy limit was 2 people in a studio, so my family would never be allowed to legally stay in the timeshare together without paying for an upgrade. I started looking around, found this forum, and was fortunate to send the rescission paperwork in time!

    Thank you all!

    Congratulations on rescinding in time!
    HGVC is a good TS system - very flexible and generally, consumer-friendly,
    But its sales-weasels are like lying dogs everywhere. Don't believe a word.
    Buying resale saves you a ton of $$, and you can bypass these clowns.

    I have been in a Studio in the Elara and the Flamingo in Las Vegas and I could see squeezing 4 people in that room for a few nights using the sofa bed, however, I have been in the Studio in the Lagoon Tower and there isn't even a sofa bed and I wouldn't think of trying to put more than two people in that room. In fact I was in the Penthouse 2471 room one time and I wouldn't even put 2 people in that room again.

    One of the two layouts for studios in the Lagoon has a king, it's the one right next to the elevator,the other layout across the hall has two 'doubles'.

    That is true. However, I must throw out some personal experiences and current preferences. First of all I am 5'3 and 120 pounds and my husband is 6'0" and 175 pounds so we are not large people. My husband and I met in 1975. We were both married before, and after a short time dating we started to live together. We were so enamored with each other that we could sleep together in a single twin bed and be happy. After we got married we sleep in a double bed that I had from my first marriage and were very happy for a number of years. Finally we decided to upgrade to a Queen Bed to give us more room and it felt like the bed was huge. As the years went by the Queen Bed doesn't seem quite as big. When we vacation we desire a King Bed to have a very comfortable sleep together.

    To summarize, we no longer would consider two double beds as sufficient bedding for 4 people! I guess HGVC agrees.
