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.”
“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.”

“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 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.”

“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.”
