“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
“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
“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
“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.”
“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.”
