Popular vacation ownership brand, Hilton Grand Vacations Club, has announced that their new downtown Charleston, North Carolina resort is officially open. The new property, Liberty Place Charleston by Hilton Club, is situated where Liberty Tree once resided and features 100 contemporary timeshare units. This is the brand’s first-ever property in Charleston.
Mark Wang, president and CEO of Hilton Grand Vacations, spoke excitedly about this new upscale property, saying:
“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.”
Liberty Place Charleston by Hilton Club is a property with class and culture. The sophisticated resort design pairs well with Charleston’s upscale charm. Walking in, you’ll come upon a boutique-style lounge with an organic tree branch light fixture that gives a nod to the Liberty Tree right in the entryway.
The resort is composed of studio, one-, and two-bedroom suites that are well-equipped with full kitchens, living areas, and private balconies. Guests will enjoy other convenient amenities right on the resort property including an owners’ lounge, fitness center, serene courtyard, and grab-and-go market.
A big bonus of staying at Liberty Place Charleston by Hilton Club is that it is within walking distance to top Charleston attractions such as the South Carolina Aquarium, The Battery scenic promenade, a wealth of dining options, unique shopping venues, and plenty of live entertainment.
Hilton Grand Vacations worked with local Charleston-based architecture and design firm, Garvin Design Group to aid in producing a resort that best displayed the historical elements of Charleston with a stylish flair. Liberty Place Charleston stands at the location of the iconic Liberty Tree, where the Declaration of Independence was first read to the city’s citizens.
Principal of Garvin Design Group, Mark Timbes, commented on the project, stating:
“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.”
