Davidson Hospitality Group Appoints Seth McDaniels as Vice President, Openings & Transitions

Leading Hospitality Management Company Expands Corporate Team, Poised for Continued

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. May 11, 2021

Davidson Hospitality Group announces the appointment of Seth McDaniels as Vice President, Openings & Transitions. In his role, he will be responsible for directing all new build openings, acquisitions and dispositions across company verticals, including Davidson Hotels, Pivot and Davidson Resorts.

McDaniels joins the team from Hyatt Hotels Corporation, where he served as director of openings, transitions & brand experience, overseeing pre-opening and transition budget development while creating and implementing all lifestyle brand operational standards. He held a similar corporate role with Two Roads Hospitality prior to Hyatt's acquisition of the organization in 2018. During his combined four-year tenure, he successfully transitioned, opened and dispositioned 25 properties while managing 28 new build projects. Previously, McDaniels was general manager at The Epiphany (now Nobu Hotel Palo Alto) in Palo Alto, California, where he oversaw all operational departments and stewarded the success of the property - which led to being named #1 hotel in overall service scores in the former Two Roads portfolio. He also held several leadership positions with Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, including The Goodland in Santa Barbara, California and EPIC Hotel in Miami, Florida.

"We are very happy to welcome Seth to the Davidson family," said Davidson Hospitality Group Chief Operating Officer Pete Sams. "Seth's experience as an operator, particularly in the lifestyle segment, will be highly valuable as we are poised for continued expansion within each of our verticals. His detail-oriented, nuanced approach combined with his dynamic leadership skills will foster a highly productive and seamless environment for our new and transitioning properties."

McDaniels received a B.S. in Hospitality Management from Florida International University, Chaplin School of Hospitality Management.

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key


Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
