Personalized Services. Agile Perspectives. Data-Driven Results.
Since 1974, our expertise, daring approach, and industry leadership have encouraged hoteliers to entrust their brands and investments to Davidson. We created Pivot, the lifestyle operating vertical of Davidson Hospitality Group, to serve a bold and responsive hotel portfolio: Ownership partners who value unique perspectives, data-driven insights, and adaptability in an evolving market.
In keeping with our culture of agility, relentless attention to detail, and an eye for ingenuity, we have learned to pivot – to serve your business, team members, and guests through highly personalized services and their boutique delivery.
Pivot is the lifestyle operating vertical within Davidson Hospitality Group. At Davidson, we approach our business – and by that, we mean your hotel – with an owner’s mentality and financial cunning, while embodying hospitality and deep reverence to our craft.
Our Pivot operations team is driven to leverage your unique story to define your lifestyle brand – to connect with your guests, optimize your services, and train your leaders for results-driven, data-backed success.
Our experienced, informed, and influential direct sales team leverages creativity, passion, and data to develop an independent hotelier mentality – to build relationships, create new opportunities, and forge new paths to high-performance sales.
With confidence and agility, we infuse our lifestyle hotels with the innovative amenities, inviting spaces, and genuine heart that embolden an authentic travel experience.
We create, inspire, and tempt hotel guests and locals alike, with fresh, local ingredients and signature cocktails, served in engaging settings. Whether through partnership with local restauranteurs or self-designed concepts, our hotels are elevated by locally-inspired, culturally relevant dining venues.
Our team begins with caring, genuine people who aren’t afraid to show a little heart. But, they’re also the best in the industry: highly talented in hospitality and fully dedicated to Pivot service and lifestyle, ensuring we deliver the right touch at the right time.
Pivot hotels are rooted in community – and in giving their guests the opportunity to partake in those communities, to know your neighbors, and be enriched by diverse and authentic experiences during their stay.
“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.”
“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.”
“Eden Roc and Nobu Hotel at Eden Roc offer the ultimate fusion of laid-back luxury with unique, immersive social spaces and crafted guest room retreats. We were drawn to Pivot as our new management partner based on the team’s continuous dedication to innovation, exceptional service delivery and revenue generation. Collectively, Pivot and Davidson manage some of the most successful resorts in Florida and we look forward to elevating our performance in Miami Beach.”
