Davidson Hospitality Group was founded in 1974 under the name Flautt & Mann Properties. Throughout the 1980s, the company began to acquire and develop larger and more complex properties throughout the Southeast region. In 1991, the company changed its name to Davidson Hotel Company and set its sights on developing a nationwide presence, transforming into a highly-focused, full-service operator specializing in the upper-upscale to near-luxury segments. In 2011, Davidson changed its name again to Davidson Hotels & Resorts to accurately reflect its changing portfolio. In 2016, Davidson launched Pivot as its lifestyle division, in 2019, it launched Davidson Restaurant Group and in January 2021, the company launched Davidson Resorts.
