The Westin Orlando Universal Boulevard Hotel will soon be a Hilton Grand Vacation Club resort.

The 315-room hotel, located at 9501 Universal Boulevard, will be converted into a 226-unit timeshare resort, said Hilton leaders.
It will be Hilton’s fourth and smallest timeshare property in Orlando.

Officials said it will be rebranded Las Palmeras in January, when it is added to Hilton’s portfolio.

“Our Club membership has experienced significant growth,” said Mark Wang, Hilton Grand Vacations president in a news release. “Bringing Las Palmeras into our Hilton portfolio of outstanding resorts increases the value we provide to our owners and guests.”
Renovations on the property, located a mile away from the Orange County Convention Center and three miles away from Universal Studios Orlando, will begin next summer.

Parc Soleil by Hilton Grand Vacations has 528 units. It’s located on Deforges Avenue off Interstate-4 near Walt Disney World’s property.
Hilton Grand Vacations Suites at SeaWorld is located on 33 acres of land across the street from SeaWorld Orlando. It has 787 units.
Hilton Grand Vacations Tuscany Suites on International Drive, located near the Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets, has 720 units.
The property, like the three other Hilton timeshares, will have one- and two-bedroom condominium-style villas. It will also have studios, according to Hilton.

Renovations also call for an updated lobby, heated outdoor pool, new waterslide, whirlpool spa, fitness center, business center, conference room, lobby bar, pool bar and restaurant.

Reservations for the property, for when it is operated by Hilton management, begin Jan. 8, according to its website.

It is unknown when Hilton acquired the property, which most recently was purchased by Marriott International Inc. through a buyout deal with Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. last month.

Sales of vacation ownership at the site are expected to begin in February, according to Hilton officials.
