This time around, we’re focusing on the reservation window options available to you, so you know exactly when and how to book with HGV.

Reservation Options and Best Practices

Home Week

Reservations for your Home Week can be made only at the resorts you own in the season, unit type and number of days owned; three, four or seven nights.

Club Members can book their Home Week anytime, 365 days before their desired check-in date. However, the optimal booking opportunity comes in the Home Week Priority window, which lets you reserve what you own 365 to 276 days before your desired check-in date, and 365 to 186 days before your desired check-in date at Hokulani Waikiki by Hilton Grand Vacations Club or The Grand Islander by Hilton Grand Vacations Club. Members who own a designated fixed or event week will automatically have their week reserved annually.

Home Resort Priority

Home Resort Priority reservations are currently available to Owners at West 57th Street by Hilton Club, The Residences by Hilton Club and The District by Hilton Club. When booking at West 57th Street reservations can be confirmed 276 to 60 days before your desired checkout date, while booking at The Residences and The District can be confimed from 276 to 75 days in advance of your desired checkout. During this window, Owners at these Hilton Club properties can reserve any available unit for any number of nights at their Home Resort. Please note: You may only use ClubPoints when making a Home Resort reservation.

By Hilton Club Priority

This is a 15-day exchange window when Owners at The Residences by Hilton Club or The District by Hilton Club can confirm a reservation at the other property. There is a one-night minimum stay required, and you can use only ClubPoints.

Club Season

This reservation window allows Members to confirm a reservation for an available unit at any property throughout the Club network of affiliated resorts. The Club Reservations booking window begins 276 days before the desired checkout date and ends 30 days prior to check-in. Usually, there is a three-night minimum stay required, but this can vary by resort. You can use ClubPoints and Saved Points, or Bonus Points. However, Bonus Points cannot be combined with ClubPoints or Saved Points for Club reservations. After the Club Reservation Window ends, Members may still make a Club reservation up to one day prior to check-in, subject to availability.

Open Season

Members may use this window to book a last-minute reservation for an available unit at any HGV resort by paying the resort’s Open Season rental rate. You can make reservations using cash starting 30 days before your checkout date and up to one day before your check-in date.

In general, there is a two-night minimum stay required, but this can vary by resort. There are additional resort restrictions on the Open Season reservation window at the following properties:
