Plan an Early 2019 Vacation to New York or Las Vegas

Kick off 2019 right by vacationing during the first two months of the year in Las Vegas or New York—or both! But don’t wait until it’s too late to book a winter getaway in one of these hot spots. (Tip: Not sure how when to book a vacation? Go to Club Navigator to learn more about booking windows.)

LAS VEGAS

3 Days Left to Score a Great Deal. For Members looking to visit Sin City in January, make a reservation at Hilton Grand Vacations Club on the Boulevard before November 11 for stays occurring January 1–31, 2019, and you will receive a $100 Visa gift card at the front desk during check-in. To receive this promotion, a minimum stay of three consecutive nights and maximum stay of seven consecutive nights is required.

Members booking a studio room with ClubPoints or Bonus Points will receive a complimentary upgrade to a one-bedroom suite, and those booking a one-bedroom suite with ClubPoints or Bonus Points will receive a complimentary upgrade to a two-bedroom suite. Members will receive a confirmation of their upgrades about three to five weeks after booking.

Hit an Ice Rink. Catch the Golden Knights on the ice of T-Mobile Arena, with games throughout January and February. The Las Vegas hockey team debuted with the NHL during the 2017–2018 season and made it to the Stanley Cup Final during its rookie year.

For those in town at the beginning of the new year, Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas will remain an ice skating rink through early January. Enjoy gliding around the rink plus fire pits, s’mores and warm cocktails.

Ski, Board or Tube. Just an hour’s drive from the Strip, Lee Canyon offers Las Vegas’ winter visitors a treat. Ski, board, take lessons or join the après-ski.

Catch the Big Game. For February visitors itching to watch the biggest football match of the year, head to the Downtown Watch Zone at the Las Vegas Events Center. Enjoy the game in high definition on a 72-foot LED screen, plus food and drink specials.

NEW YORK

Stay in the Heart of the City. The Residences by Hilton Club—our newest offering in the city that never sleeps—plants you right in the middle of the action. It’s the perfect place to stay, whether you prefer your winter delights outdoors (it’s just blocks from Central Park) or with a healthy dose of culture (the Museum of Modern Art is right across the street).

Warm Up to Jazz. The first Winter Jazzfest took place in Greenwich Village in 2005. Since then, the festival returns every January to entertain locals and tourists alike—growing from a one-day event on a single stage to a nearly weeklong celebration spanning more than a dozen stages. Better yet? One wristband grants you access to every venue.

Renew Your Vows in Times Square. A Valentine’s Day event, Love in Times Square will once again host a Vow Renewal Ceremony on February 14. Mark this special holiday by sharing what you love most about your significant other. Want to participate in Love in Times Square 2019? Fill out this form to receive event details when they are available.

Plan for a Spontaneous Race. For a dose of hilarity, mark your calendar for Idiotarod NYC. This annual, late-January race resembles the Alaskan dog sled race Iditarod, save for the dogs being replaced with people and the sled being swapped out for decorated shopping carts. Follow the event’s Twitter page to learn the location of the route—and get ready to watch a bunch of costumed participants “mush” their way through the city.

Stay at The Residences by Hilton Club.
