Hilton HHonors Rewards
One of the most popular and high-demand HGVC membership benefits is the Hilton HHonors program. With HHonors points, all travelers who stay at Hilton hotels or resorts can have access to discounted services, extra luxury amenities, and free giveaways. When you purchase an HGVC timeshare resale and become an HGVC member, you are automatically enrolled in HHonors, and can start accumulating points immediately.
HGVCResales.com is an independently owned website that provides this information for prospective resale buyers to help them make an educated purchasing decision.
What is HHonors?
Hilton HHonors is a loyalty rewards program managed by Hilton Worldwide. Anyone can join at the most basic level and collect a certain number of points for every stay at a Hilton hotel or resort. HHonors points can be collected and redeemed at the following Hilton properties:
- Hilton Grand Vacations Club resorts
- Waldorf Astoria
- Hilton hotels
- Embassy Suites Hotels
- Hilton Garden Inn
- DoubleTree by Hilton
- Homewood Suites by Hilton
- Home 2 Suites by Hilton
As an HGVC member, you can collect HHonors points every time you take a vacation at your home resort or another HGVC resort.
HGVC Points vs. HHonors Points
While HGVC Points are used for making reservations at resorts, HHonors points are used for bonus features. These features include discounted travel services such as airfare, additional hotel amenities, and free giveaways. If you have leftover HGVC Points from your reservation, you can convert them into HHonors points. However, you cannot convert HHonors points to HGVC points.
