PH Towers Timeshare Gets New Name, Hilton Brand, and CeeLo as a Neighbor

Big Change at PH Towers Timeshare

It’s official, the former Planet Hollywood Towers by Westgate (known as PH Towers timeshare) has been renamed Elara, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club.

Last week, Hilton Worldwide announced that the new name of the former PH Towers Westgate timeshare resort is “Elara, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club.

In November 2011, the property was sold, and its new owner, LV Tower 52 LLC, hired Hilton Grand Vacations to rebrand the resort and provide future timeshare sales and marketing services. The 52-story Las Vegas timeshare resort currently has more than 17,000 vacation interval timeshare owners.

Four Hilton Grand Vacations Club Resorts in Las Vegas

Located on the center section of the famous “Las Vegas Strip,”  The Elara now becomes the fourth Hilton Grand Vacations Club in Las Vegas, and as explained in the Las Vegas Sun, provides more than 48,000 Hilton Grand Vacations Club members with a “home resort” in Las Vegas. Adjacent to the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino complex, the Elara offers easy access to the more than 170 shops and restaurants along the Miracle Mile.

If you become a vacation property owner at the Elara, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club, not only will you be adjacent to some of the best dining and entertainment opportunities in Vegas, but you will become the new next-door neighbor to singer and entertainer CeeLo Green. This week, Green announced that he is bringing his show, “Cee Lo Green Presents LOBERACE” to the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, where it will become a headliner show, while the resort  will become CeeLo’s official Las Vegas residence.

Now to put a little Vegas-style fun in your Thursday morning, enjoy this video of CeeLo performing on Letterman … because we all need a little “Bright Lights, Bigger City” from time to time.
