Hey, all Short version: HGVC properties - Do I earn points and get status benefits? Yes or no? Looks like I'll be heading to Vegas in late March. I've got an event rate at the Flamingo (not the HGVC, the real Flamingo) and the rate is pretty good, but if I can earn points and use status I'd like to consider those options. I have no doubt that I could do so at the Doubletree (formerly the Tropicana), but I'd like to confirm that I can do so at the three other Hilton properties on the strip: The Elara, the HGVC, and the HGVC "at the Flamingo." I read this http://milepoint.com/forums/threads/hilton-grand-vacations-on-the-strip-or-elara.37355/, but the last post was last September, so I thought there might be some new and relevant information. Anyone?
