I married into this timeshare. My husband started with Monarch Grand Vacations, then upgraded to Diamond, then he was convinced in order to maximize benefits we needed to upgrade again. When Hilton purchased we again were led to believe we would miss being able to book great locations unless we joined / grandfathered into HGVMax (more thousands of dollars). In front of the sales staff I told them how many more times do we have to 'upgrade'? What are we really getting? Again we were told you will have so many more opportunities in our entire portfolio of locations. So here we are and I am trying to book up to a year in advance with no changes that I can see after being taken for another ride by Hilton/timeshare companies. Same trouble booking and not seeing new locations. I know it is our own fault for falling for this again. I tell all of my family and friends the most foolish 'investment' is a timeshare. Hopefully someday I can convince my husband we need to just let this go and save 8k a year in 'maintenance' fees.
