Any suggestions or comments about the Hilton locations in New York for visiting XMAS week?

We would definitely be gone before New Years

This would be a slow paced travel week where we would be focused on enjoying the city during the Holidays.

No idea about availability, but all the HGVC (bHC) locations are in Midtown. Christmas week is a wonderful time to visit NYC...except insofar as it seems like everyone else in the world thinks so too. I encourage you to make restaurant reservations and buy theatre tickets as early as possible.

Be aware that, unless you own there, the booking window is very limited (60-75 days, I believe). Looking now there seems to be reasonable availability )one can see it even if it is greyed out). We own at W. 57th and could book a Studio Plus for 12/24-12/31, for example. Other rooms not available for the full time.

For theatre tickets, I would just go to the TKTS booth and see what they have on sale day of, but that's me :)

Cheers.

Also. At W 57th St I know Thanksgiving is an event week (people own that specific week). However, people cancel and I’ve booked Thanksgiving a couple times.

I think (but don’t know) that Christmas may also be an event week.

In any case, December is the most popular month for people that actually own at the resort so availability (at least at W 57th St) may be limited.

We have a backup trip for the holidays booked and are spending it in Hilton Head - We are meeting family for New Years for sure but XMAS in New York vs an extra week in Hilton Head sounded appealing (minus the crowds). We saw the potential availability that others have mentioned which is what caused me to write the post.. The feedback is appreciated.
