Delivering hospitality, creating value...every customer, every time.

Davidson Hotel Company is a full-serivce hospitality company providing management, development/renovation, acquisition, consulting and accounting expertise for the hospitality industry.   Founded in 1974 as Flautt and Mann Properties, the company initially grew through its management of small, mid-scale hotels located primarily in the Southeastern U.S.  Throughout the 1980's, the company began to acquire and develop larger and more sophisitcated properties throughout the region.  In 1991, the company changed its name to Davidson Hotel Company and embarked on a truly impressive evolution.  Throughout the 1990's and into the present, Davidson has grown into a highly-focused, full service operator in the upscale and upper upscale segments.

Davidson's strength is creating asset value through operational efficiencies; strategic renovations, re-branding and repositionings; and top-line revenue growth.  Davidson's successful repositionings have hinged on its abilities to perform renovations on time and within budget, providing a high quality experience for the customer and asset value for the owner.  In addition, Davidson has developed a unique operating system, powered by a proprietary technology platform that allows owners, property teams, regional teams and corporate staff to monitor revenues and expenses in real-time.  Labor management, forcasting, revenue and sales modules allow for extensive oversight such that support can be directed to any level of the property operation.

Davidson has provided management services for some of the country's largest and most sophisicated institutional owners.  These institutional owners have sought out Davidson due to its exceptional track record.  Due to its longevity in the hotel industry, Davidson has gone through several economic cycles and understands  the dynamics of a changing world.  Davidson prides itself on its ability to remain highly entrepreneurial in order to ensure efficiencies and profitability for its clients in any economic environment.  Resulting from Davidson's unparalleled success in creating asset value, both institutional and individual owners have sought out its expertise to provide management services on a third-party basis.  Accordingly, Davidson has been able to leverage its industry relationship in bringing value to other assets, much as it has done in creating value for its own properties over the last three decades.

Davidson owns and/or manages independent and branded hotels in gateway cities and high growth markets around the country.  Davidson is a preferred operator under such brands as Hyatt, Westin, Sheraton, Marriott, Renaissance, Hilton, Embassy Suites, Doubletree, Hilton Garden Inn, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Radisson.  Davidson now ranks as one of the 10th largest, independently-owned management companies in the industry, yet still remains highly committed to providing individualized service for each of its owners.
