Hilton Grand Vacations Debuts Its First Timeshare Resort in Charleston, South Carolina
Wednesday, June 2, 2021
Developed in collaboration with Strand Capital Group, LLC., Hilton Grand Vacations (HGV) has just opened its fifth resort in South Carolina and first in the city of Charleston in the historic downtown district, Liberty Place Charleston by Hilton Club.
Positioned near the site where the Liberty Tree once lived, this 100-unit resort is the first of the brand in Charleston and was designed to be the perfect blend of the city’s classic style with Hilton’s signature contemporary design.
Hilton Grand Vacations’ CEO Mark Wang stated:
“We’re thrilled to expand our diverse portfolio into the vibrant and remarkable city of Charleston with Liberty Place Charleston by Hilton Club. Charleston is one of the most sought-after drive-to destinations in the U.S., and we’re proud to provide our owners and guests with a luxury resort in the heart of this timeless, low country city.”
To honor the Liberty Tree where the Declaration of Independence was first read to the city’s residents, Hilton Grand Vacations has created a property that embraces and reflects Charleston’s rich history and culture including the resort’s courtyard and Vestige Walls. Additional details include an original light fixture designed to represent the 13 original colonies in the lounge and a live oak replica of the Liberty Tree mounted in the entrance.
The resort offers studio, one-, and two-bedroom suites for guests with added amenities in the premier units like balconies, as well as kitchens and living areas in the suites.
Managing Partner of Strand Capital Group Loyd Daniel added:
“The opening of Liberty Place Charleston by Hilton Club is a milestone to be celebrated. We are pleased to continue to work with the entire Hilton Grand Vacations team and look forward to entering the Charleston market together.”
In addition to working with a South Carolina-based financial group, HGV also worked with local architecture and design firm Garvin Design Group in order to capture the historic and cultural elements of Charleston around the resort. This also marks the ninth project the companies have worked on together.
Mark Timbes, a principal of Garvin Design Group said:
“With the abundance of history that permeates throughout Charleston, we aspired to build a bridge between visitors and residents living right next door. This location was once a rallying point for residents, and the symbolism of creating a public gathering point was not lost on us in the design process. The fact that we’ve been able to take a private property and give it back to the neighborhood is very important.”
Features of Liberty Place extend past its on-site owners’ lounge, a lobby bar, a fitness center, and a mini mart. It is also situated within walking distance of the South Carolina Aquarium, The Battery, a number of shops, restaurants, bars, and entertainment options, and provides visitors a true taste of everything great about Charleston.
