Westgate Resorts Acquires Former Hilton New York Grand Central
Thursday, June 7, 2018
Westgate Resorts has just announced the acquisition of former Hilton New York Grand Central located in Manhattan. This two-tower, 300-room resort has now been rebranded as Westgate New York City.
“It is with great excitement that I announce Westgate has purchased its first urban hotel located in none other than the Big Apple,” said David Siegel, founder & CEO of Westgate Resorts. “This puts the Westgate flag proudly in the heart of one of the most visited cities in the world, located on East 42nd Street—only a few blocks from Times Square, the United Nations and Grand Central Station.”
This hotel is a historic landmark, recognized by Historic Hotels of America, first opened in 1931 when it was known as the Hotel Tudor. Westgate will operate the property while it goes under extensive renovations. Westgate Resorts will also look into different opportunities to add timeshare villas in the future. Timeshare owners within the Westgate network can now enjoy exclusive discounts towards reservations at the hotel as of yesterday, June 6.
The amenities at the Westgate New York City include 3,500 square feet of meeting space, a business center, 24-hour fitness center, casual eatery, and valet parking. The property is conveniently located on 42nd Street with prime access to Grand Central Station. Guests can enjoy visiting many nearby landmarks such as the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Times Square, Bryant Park, Museum of Modern Art, Rockefeller Center, and New York Public Library.
Westgate Resorts is adding more properties to their ever-growing network this year including Westgate Cocoa Beach Resort in Florida on July 1, 2018. Already a leader in the timeshare industry, Westgate Resorts has been expanding their hotel offerings in top destinations such as Las Vegas, Orlando, Park City, and more.
