I have received several emails from Hilton Grand Vacations (advertising cruises mainly) that tell me to select my club for more information.

The options are "HGVClub" or "The Club?

My only ownership is by Hilton Club at W 57th St. Which "club" am I in?

HGVClub but more specifically you are in by Hilton Club but they are lumped into HGVClub.

The Club is Diamond

If someone buys resale of hgvclub like w57 or liberty in Charleston are they treated the same for using those points at any other legacy hgvc. In other words are the by Hilton clubs in their own silo like the way they treat diamond or embarc without hgv max?

You can use bHC points throughout HGVC and bHC.

But in general you try should use bHC point at HC properties because of higher MF and lounge access if you own there.

In addition, all booking windows and ownership perks (like lounge access) are granted as well. No difference from direct purchase except the price tag.

Cheers.

I would be interested in seeing a bHC Elara resale deed. Don't know that I've seen one of those come on the market yet. (I'd also be interested in the Liberty Place, but I don't think those are passing ROFR)

I haven't seen any Elara HC in the resale market yet and most SC resale don't pass ROFR.

Think of it as a club within a club. You are a Hilton Club owner, but you can also use it at HGVC properties.

Elara HC just started selling, I would give it a few years before one lands on the resale market. I agree with @HuskerATL with that. I guess I didn't realize there was any HC in the SC properties. If so, what location?
