If you’re looking for an opportunity to grow with a stable, dynamic and award-winning company that shares your values and commitments, then you have come to the right place. Since January 2010, Davidson Hotels & Resorts has hired over 95 veterans, and we currently employ over 130 teammates with a military background. As an active member of the National  US Chamber of Commerce Foundation program “Hiring Heroes,” we are committed to continue our strong history of hiring Armed Forces Veterans.

In the end, it makes a remarkable difference driving top line revenue and bottom line results for our property owners. It’s the reason why our property owners see us as a true value-creation company, not just a management company

We invite you to join us as we continue to set the standard in the hospitality industry.

It takes a Village to raise the hopes and dreams of a child suffering from a life-threatening illness.

undefinedToo often, children with life-threatening illnesses are forced to lead very different lives. Thrust uncontrollably into extraordinary circumstances that can rob them of the joys, innocence and simplicity of childhood. In the lives of these courageous children, normalcy takes a very different form; many times lacking smiles, laughter, joy and hope. Give Kids The World (GKTW) changes all that. Though not a cure for their medical condition, the extraordinary work performed at The GKTW Village does the impossible. It allows these children to escape the harsh reality of their world. To visit Orlando and stay in a whimsical, 70-acre storybook resort with their family. To visit Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld. To laugh out loud with newfound friends. Even to eat ice cream for breakfast. To simply experience the world, as they should—as a child. And when they return home, they take with them one of the most powerful forces on the planet – hope!

As corporate sponsor, we have joyfully and tearfully pledged our love and commitment to these amazing children, both through our volunteer efforts, as well as through long-term financial commitments to GKTW. It has been, without a doubt, one of the most important missions of our Davidson family. And we’ve all been blessed to experience the beauty of providing hope and faith into an otherwise dire situation.

As the highest-ranked charity in the nation, GKTW has now hosted over 120,000 children with life-threatening illnesses, and their families, providing a cost-free, weeklong stay at the Give Kids The World Village, including transportation, meals and tickets to Walt Disney World, Sea World and Universal Studios. It also takes a Village of corporate sponsors, individual donors and volunteers to make it all happen—of which we are extremely honored to be a member.

    I have been working at Davidson Hotels & Resorts full-time (Less than a year)


    When I was on the job search and asked people in the industry about Davidson I got a common response, "Davidson is a class company with great senior leadership." In my time at Davidson I have been blown away. I am consistently challenged and forced to think for myself to solve problems. The company culture is made up of hard work, delivering quality service, and possessing genuine care for co workers, clients, and guests. The review title sums up my experience at Davidson thus far and those traits are something I value tremendously.


    The lean team can sometimes lead to feeling overwhelmed. But, you can ask for help and getting hands on experience is fantastic.
