Urban timeshares - New York City

When people think of timeshares, they tend to think about resort destinations like Orlando, Lake Tahoe, Hawaii, or Las Vegas. These places all have plenty of timeshares, for good reason. What's less well known is that you can find timeshares in major cities, too - even the big apple, New York City.

You can stay in a timeshare in Manhattan, but like most things here, it isn't cheap. On the other hand, there's no place like New York, and it makes for an unforgettable and exciting trip. Just don't be expecting an "affordable family vacation"! Here are a few options in the city.

  1. Timeshare industry has experienced a considerable growth over the last years. On the surface, it looks like it is a reliable market and an innovative way to vacation; on the other hand, timeshare frauds are happening on a daily basis, putting thousands of families in a critical financial situation and taking millions of dollars each year. Such conflict has created lots of misinformation about timeshares, and most timeshare myths come from timeshare salespeople.

  2. Hi Peggy - You're right that there is a lot of misinformation out there about timeshares! It's easy for people to be unclear about what they're buying, either due to sales presentations that gloss over significant items, or to purposely misleading statements. Timeshares can be a wonderful way to vacation, but you have to know what you're doing, and get educated first. Reading our Consumer Awareness Guide to Buying a Timeshare is a great first step. It's free, and can help you make an informed, intelligent decision.

    My husband and I will be in NY visiting our son. The rest of the family will also be there. We are looking for a bed and bathroom for 2 people from 13August 2016 to 17 August and then from 22 to 26 Augusta 2016. Our son lives near Union Square so anything within walking distance would be wonderful. We are RCI timeshare members in South Africa

    • Hi Lyn -
      I'm not part of RCI, I just write about it. So I can't really get you a booking - you'll need to check RCI for that. Summer dates are often tough to get, but give it a try.
      Hope they can find you something! And have fun in NYC! - Deanna.
