Hilton’s world-class guest loyalty program, Hilton Honors™, began in 1987 as an “instant win” scratch-off promotion. Since then, Hilton Honors membership has become synonymous with travel know-how. Automatic membership in the program is also one of the most loved benefits of Hilton Grand Vacations timeshare

Here’s how seven Hilton Grand Vacations Owners use their Hilton Honors Points and how it has changed their travel.

"By converting ClubPoints to Hilton Honors Points, we can visit places where there may not be a Hilton Grand Vacations property, which was one of the biggest selling points and convinced us to become Owners. One of our favorite destinations is Lake Placid, New York, which is just a few hours from home."

— Gina P.

"I’m a Hilton Diamond Member, and I got to stay at the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club in California. I stayed for free for two nights, and I got free breakfast. I would never stay in these luxurious Hilton properties if it weren’t for my memberships."

"I’ve been racking up my Hilton Honors Points and saving them for retirement. I plan to use Points when we need to stay somewhere just for a day.

So, when we’re driving around the country during retirement, we can stay with the Hilton portfolio of brands in almost any town we stop. Staying for free is most important to me and being treated like a Diamond Member will be the cherry on top."

— Laurie L.

"Sometimes our oldest daughter comes down to Orlando, and we book a week for her even if we’re not there. For instance, she and her husband are coming to Clearwater this weekend, and I booked them at a Hampton Inn right on Clearwater Beach using our Hilton Honors Points."

Hilton Grand Vacations Owners on St. Augustine vacation, Florida.      

"We’ve wanted to stay at Embassy Suites by Hilton St. Augustine Oceanfront since it opened a couple of years ago. Luckily, we could book our stay completely on Hilton Honors points – staying in a Studio with a balcony.

Between the beautiful rooms and the outdoor areas, it was a perfect place to relax and decompress for a few days. And since it’s Embassy Suites, we also enjoyed perks, including complimentary breakfast and happy hour. It doesn’t get much better than that."

— Kassi P. 

"The Hilton hospitality was unforgettable. We were only Gold Members at the time and had no experience redeeming Member benefits overseas, but we weren’t disappointed. We received a free room upgrade, lounge access and breakfast; boy was the breakfast memorable."

— Laurie L.

"We booked Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino with Hilton Honors Points. The resort, its amenities and the beach were exceptional.

As Diamond Hilton Honors Members, we received an upgrade to a nice 1-Bedroom Suite, complete with a kitchenette and lots of space to spread out. Between the well-appointed Suite and the staff’s commitment to Hilton CleanStay™, didn’t want to leave."

— Irene C. 

"I found a long weekend deal for a one-way, direct flight from Charleston, South Carolina, to Baltimore, Maryland, on Southwest Airlines — for $39 per person. I couldn’t pass it up! We flew into Baltimore the Friday of Labor Day weekend.

Then, we boarded a bus ($21 for four of us) that took us to the end of the Red Line on the Metrorail system that runs through Washington, D.C. From there, we took the Metro into D.C., where I booked a redemption room on Hilton Honors Points. Staying near the Metrorail was a requirementso we’d have easy access to all the city offers. We enjoyed the National Mall, the National Zoo and fantastic museums that weekend."
