Hotel plans packages for foodies

LAS VEGAS -- A new program for travelers that is due to come on line in the next few months is based on a joint venture of the Hilton Grand Vacations Club and the Creative Cooking School here.

CCS president Catherine Margles said talks are under way to institute a program with the Hilton Grand Vacations Club that would offer guests at least two ways to incorporate the joys of the kitchen into their Las Vegas leisure experience.

In one arrangement, the school will send a private chef into a HGV Club suite and treat the folks to a culinary demonstration and then serve them the resulting gourmet dinner.

In this scenario, the guests have the opportunity to specify the type of cuisine they'd like.

An alternate offering will take shape as a vacation package that includes the suite accommodations and cooking lessons taught by top chefs at the west Sahara location of the Creative Cooking School. The weeklong stay would include three days of classes.

The 404-room Hilton Grand Vacations Club, located just north of the Las Vegas Hilton, offers timeshare and hotel stays in one- and two-bedroom suites featuring a master whirlpool bath, fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, cable TV and a VCR.

The 3-year-old property has a heated pool, a whirlpool spa and barbecue/picnic areas. The amenities of the Las Vegas Hilton are available to guests of the Grand Vacations Club. -- B.J.N.
