In 1974, under a predecessor name, Davidson Hospitality Group began operations with a roster of small and mid-scale hotels in the southeastern U.S. Over the years, we have funneled our hearts and efforts solely into the hospitality industry, leveraging our knowledge, expertise, and leadership to build an exceptional portfolio, constituted by some of the world’s most respected and celebrated hospitality veterans.
In keeping with our heritage of delivering value and to better serve our ownership partners, we have developed four highly specialized operating verticals within Davidson Hospitality Group – Davidson Hotels, Pivot, Davidson Resorts, and Davidson Restaurant Group – to further amplify our promise to create value, infuse heart, and deliver industry-leading services to our brands, team members, and guests.
At Davidson Hospitality Group, diversity is not a checklist: It’s our superpower. You are our team, our partners, our fellow humans – our creative, inclusive, and compassionate Davidson community.
Our success is built on a unique style of entrepreneurial management and ownership mentality that enables Davidson to provide each of our properties with the individualized personal service of a small company, enhanced by the breadth and depth of the skill and experience at a larger company. We continue to invest heavily in our people, services, and infrastructure, to create value and optimize financial performance throughout our portfolio.
“Building upon our foundational relationship, we were compelled to engage Pivot for this highly anticipated opening based on the team’s extensive lifestyle pedigree through and through. Pivot understands how to serve guests who desire a personalized social travel experience. We know that under the team’s leadership and guidance, the Kimpton Harper will seamlessly encapsulate the dynamic, laid-back sophistication of Fort Worth in a meaningful way.”
“At Le Méridien Houston Downtown, our location enables guests to immerse themselves in the culture they crave based on our proximity to museums, theaters, attractions and much more. We are very confident in Pivot’s ability to serve as stewards for this exceptional, architecturally-significant property. We were drawn to the company’s hands-on approach, owner’s mentality and entrepreneurial management style; and we believe they will serve as the ideal extension of our team.”
“With Davidson’s success to date managing Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort and recent expansion with Davidson Restaurant Group, we saw them as the clear choice to manage this new development where we are debuting two new dining concepts for the brand. Margaritaville Hotel Nashville will be unlike any hotel in the city where guests can escape from the everyday and enjoy true Southern hospitality with a ‘no worries’ tropical vibe.”

“Charleston is one of the most popular destinations in the country right now and it’s exciting to be in this market with institutionally proficient and locally-immersed partners at the helm. We are happy to be teaming up with WHI Real Estate Partners and Davidson to reinvigorate and reenergize this historic property to be more contemporary, refined and in line with guests’ evolving travel needs.”

“The Higgins Hotel & Conference Center is truly an iconic hotel for the ages, providing unique and convenient accommodations while paying tribute to those who served abroad and at home. Pivot’s hospitality management expertise along with their operational support enables the Museum to offer guests a truly memorable experience and expands our ability to tell the personal stories of the WWII generation.”
