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.
“Pivot has demonstrated success in managing time-honored properties such as Florida’s iconic Don CeSar and Hotel Viking in Newport, Rhode Island. We’ve found a perfect partner in Pivot to strengthen the hotel’s bottom line while enhancing its authenticity and lifestyle experience to maximize the potential of this asset.”
Three P Partners
“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.”
The National WWII Museum
“We are excited to begin a new partnership with Davidson Hotels & Resorts and were drawn to the company’s holistic approach toward value optimization and its existing operating experience within the Margaritaville brand. Through quality stewardship of this tremendous asset, we are confident that the Davidson team will not only drive superior performance, but also embrace and wholeheartedly deliver the ‘no worries’ paradise guest experience.”
Encore Capital Management
“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.”
Safe Harbor Development
“Pivot has had tremendous success with independent, lifestyle and destination resort properties, thus instilling a high level of confidence in our family’s selection. Alta is an important part of our family, not just for our love of skiing together, but dates back to when my great, great grandfather, Swen O Nielson, worked in Alta’s Emma Mine in the late 1800s — the restaurant is named Swen’s in honor of him. The Snowpine Lodge is more than just an asset to our family, it’s our deep-rooted legacy. We are confident that in Pivot, we have selected partners that will be true stewards of this establishment that continues to shape Alta history.”
