About

Davidson Hospitality Group

Storied Hospitality

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.

Hospitality, Specialized

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.

Diversity is Our
Competitive Advantage

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.

An Ownership Mentality

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 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.”
