Hilton Grand Vacations Celebrates Grand Opening of The Central at 5th, a Hilton Club in the Heart of Manhattan

 

ORLANDO, Fla. (Oct. 14, 2022) – Hilton Grand Vacations Inc. (NYSE:HGV), the industry-leading global vacation ownership company, celebrates the grand opening of its newest Midtown Manhattan property, The Central at 5th, a Hilton Club. The high-end resort offers unique rooms and prime amenities in a modern, refined building just steps away from Central Park, Rockefeller Center, The Museum of Modern Art, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and more.

With suites that span nearly 600 square feet, the property’s 161 pristinely designed rooms feature modern amenities, updated bathrooms that include heated floors in the penthouse suites and abundant natural light thanks to expansive windows. In addition, the resort features a state-of-the-art fitness center and an exclusive owner’s lounge with an elegant outdoor terrace.

Built in collaboration with world-class architectural and interior design firms Handel Architects and Rottet Studio, the Central at 5th draws inspiration from the style of the neighborhood’s historic buildings – reinterpreting them with a modern twist. HGV also worked in close step with real estate private equity investment firm 54 Madison Partners, to complete this project.

“While New York City may be the city that never sleeps, our owners and guests still deserve the best possible place to rest their heads at the end of a long day,” said Mark Wang, president and CEO of Hilton Grand Vacations. “We believe tourism in New York is back in a big way because we hear from our owners and guests every day about how they can’t wait to visit. We’re thrilled to expand our footprint in New York with this new purpose-built property, which provides even more opportunities for our owners to experience everything the city has to offer.”

HGV is the first vacation ownership company to construct a purpose-build property in Manhattan and now has five properties throughout the city. The Central at 5th joins sister properties The Hilton Club – New York; The Residences, a Hilton Club; West 57th Street, a Hilton Club; and The Quin, a Hilton Club to offer vacation ownership experiences in New York.

With leisure travel returning to pre-pandemic norms, the city has seen a significant rebound in tourism, especially from younger travelers. In addition to opening new properties such as The Central at 5th location, HGV is redesigning and rebranding a number of its more than 150 resorts around the country, ensuring that its properties are consistently being elevated to the company’s exceptional standards.

For the third consecutive year, HGV was named first in the hotel and travel industry on the Foundation’s “Best By Industry” list.

“HGV is proud to offer its team members the leading adoption assistance benefit in the industry, and we are honored to be recognized by Dave Thomas Foundation for our efforts,” said Pablo Brizi, executive vice president, chief human resources officer & corporate affairs at Hilton Grand Vacations. “Supporting our team members build their families through adoption supports our mission of Putting People First.

The company offers corporate, hourly and resort-based team members an adoption assistance benefit of up to $10,000 per child to help offset the cost of adoption. HGV also provides 12 weeks of paid parental leave for all eligible U.S. team members who have been with the company for 90 days. The parental leave program applies to birth and adoptive mothers and fathers, as well as team members who have a child via surrogacy.

“Hilton Grand Vacations consistently ranks as a leading adoption-friendly workplace as they offer outstanding benefits that take into consideration the cost of adoption as well as the time needed to bond with an adopted child,” said Rita Soronen, president & CEO of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. “Congratulations on being ranked number one in the hotel and travel industry on our 2022 100 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces list.”

The Dave Thomas Foundation partnered with RTI International, an independent, nonprofit research institute, to survey employers across the United States and score participants based on three criteria: financial reimbursement, paid leave and the percentage of employees eligible for those benefits.

8 Team Members Share Why They Love Working for Hilton Grand Vacations

 

Hilton Grand Vacations was certified as a Great Place to Work® in 2022. The award recognizes companies with excellent workplace cultures and Team Member experiences. Over 80% of Team Members reported they’re proud to work at HGV.

Here’s a round-up of why our Team Members love working for Hilton Grand Vacations.

 

HGV’s mission is to put people first, whether they’re Owners, Guests or Team Members. The key to success is centering them in every decision. HGV demonstrates a Team Member-first philosophy through a comprehensive suite of benefits, including day one health insurance coverage, parental leave and travel discounts.

Supporting Team Members empowers them personally and professionally. For Eric C., manager of financial planning, people are key to HGV’s positive work culture:

“The reason that I love working for Hilton Grand Vacations is chiefly because of the people I work with. I value the excellent Team Member perks and benefits and feel proud to say I work for Hilton Grand Vacations. Most importantly, the wonderful interactions with fellow Team Members have directed me to grow in my career and enrich my social awareness.”

One way HGV creates an inclusive environment where Team Members come together and support each other is through Team Member resource groups (TMRGs). Eric serves as co-chair of the African American TMRG, providing a platform for African American Team Members to connect and others to learn about diversity.

Abed E., general manager of SeaWorld® Orlando, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club, and co-chair of the multi-cultural TMRG, adds:

“Hilton Grand Vacations understands that cultural inclusion can improve our company and attract great talent. It’s not only about hiring people from all over; it’s important that everyone feels truly welcome and free to be themselves in the workplace.”

 

Hilton Grand Vacations prioritizes giving back to the community through corporate social responsibility (CSR). HGV Serves, one of those CSR programs, facilitates volunteer events for Team Members to work with outstanding nonprofits and make a difference.

Nicole H., assistant general manager in Las Vegas and co-chair of the women’s TMRG, values her career at HGV because of the emphasis on community service:

“For me, it is very important to be a part of a company that gives back to the community, so it was incredible to learn that Hilton Grand Vacations is already partnering with organizations in Las Vegas that are near and dear to my heart. This involvement is great for our team morale and creates a positive workplace atmosphere.”

DeBorah W., a women’s TMRG co-chair and HR business partner specialist, has enjoyed volunteering with HGV Serves.

“To help someone in their time of need is an amazing feeling — and it gives people in the community so much hope. I love working for a company that not only encourages — but also provides volunteer opportunities — specifically for its Team Members.”

HGV also works with Hawaiian organizations to practicE sustainable stewardship on the Hawaiian Islands and give back to the communities where Team Members live, work and vacation. These initiatives are part of “Malama Hawaii,” a sustainable travel movement based on the Hawaiian word malama, meaning “to care for.” Alyson M., an executive assistant in Honolulu, Hawaii, and co-chair of the Asia Pacific Islander TMRG, says:

“HGV has been true to its commitment to malama the Hawaiian Islands by protecting its land and culture. This initiative has been so effective because of our leaders, who are active contributors to nonprofit organizations across the Hawaiian Islands. They are great examples of ‘You Do, We Do, I Do,’ and carry it out on a daily basis.”

 

Not only can Team Members improve their communities, but they also receive support as they grow in their careers. Cheryl S., sales executive and co-chair of the different abilities TMRG, says:

“I am proud to be a part of this amazing brand that fosters growth and advancement opportunities by promoting from within.”

Many Team Members feel empowered in their positions as they rise in the ranks. Houria L. shares her career journey from front desk agent to club director in this article.

Professional development can also come from a better understanding of the company through all of its departments. Gregg S., director of safety and security and military TMRG co-chair, has grown as a professional by interacting across the company:

“I have grown so much at HGV being plugged into the bigger picture of vacation ownership and seeing the business through the lenses of other departments. This additional insight has given me experiences that have helped me grow into a versatile and knowledgeable professional who can contribute to any team’s needs.”

Annie R., senior manager of owner services, has worked at HGV for 10 years and still loves it:

“I used to drive past the HGV corporate office, and I knew, one day, I wanted to work for them as one of the leading global hospitality companies. To date, it has been the most rewarding experience and the greatest opportunity in my professional career. HGV has provided me financial stability, unparalleled travel and health benefits, and an opportunity to advance my education and professional career.”

From career development courses to team support, HGV provides employees with the tools and resources they need to reach their professional goals.

If you’re ready to start a successful career in the hospitality industry, now is the best time to join. In the past few years, HGV has become an industry-leader in vacation ownership, and there are plenty of opportunities to grow with the company.

Make an Impact at Work with HGV Serves

With decades of experience in hospitality (and still going strong), Michael E. — the general manager of Elara, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club, in Las Vegas — has plenty of insights from his career. “The best decision I ever made was making the jump over to HGV,” he said. “Our products are superior, and I appreciate our focus on service and Team Members.”

While other Team Members have shared the reasons they love working for HGV — from the positive work culture, comprehensive suite of benefits, the potential for career growth and supportive teams — Michael has found volunteering to be a rewarding part of his career.

In 2017, Deloitte found that a majority of employees (89%) believe company-sponsored volunteer activities generate more positive working environments. Because of this, job-seekers look for companies that align with their personal values.

A graphic with Michael E's headshot and the text "General Manager, Elara, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club"

 “It makes me proud to see HGV and myself tightly aligned with my personal values,” he said, as opposed to corporate values that simply look great on paper. “HGV Serves puts our values into action,” he added.

What is HGV Serves? It’s Hilton Grand Vacations’ corporate social responsibility program. “It’s part of our commitment to care for our Owners, Guests, Team Members and our community. HGV Serves allows us to go out, volunteer and create some positive change,” Michael explained. Some of the causes HGV Serves supports include disaster relief, homelessness, youth development and veterans.

Earlier this year, Michael and Las Vegas-based Team Members took time to partner with the USO and put together 3,500 care packages for deployed service members. “I’m excited by how well the USO event went; it was such a good time, and it’s a great cause. I’ve had a number of Team Members who have served in the past, and we’re proud to support veterans and deployed soldiers. Plus, it was fun to come together as Team Members, from resort operations to sales, marketing and corporate offices. We were able to invite Team Members to participate and make an impact together,” he said.

HGV Team Members assemble care packages for deployed service members with the USO.

“We could have finished 5,000 care packages easily,” Michael said with a laugh. “We want to do it again soon, and we’ve got our eyes to set a goal to put together 10,000.”

Because for Michael, at the end of the day, his job is about helping people: “My goal is to take care of our Team Members, Owners, Guests and the resorts. But really, the responsibility to represent all these people and try to create an enjoyable place for them to come to work or on vacation and know they are valued. It’s exciting to know you’re making a difference at work and in the community.”

HGV Serves is just one of the reasons Hilton Grand Vacations has been certified as a 2022 Great Place to Work®. Join a team of people who are passionate about #LifeAtHGV, and start a career with Hilton Grand Vacations today.
