Davidson appointed to operate Hotel Bella Grace in Charleston


US: Davidson Hotels & Resorts has been appointed by development company Three P Partners to operate Hotel Bella Grace in the Ansonborough neighbourhood of downtown Charleston.

The 50-room luxury boutique hotel blends preservation with modernisation, nearby to the vibrant dining and retail scene of Upper King Street and just a half block away from Marion Square and Charleston Gaillard Center.

Hotel Bella Grace is the latest addition to its Pivot Hotels & Resorts lifestyle and luxury division and marks Davidson’s first property in the Charleston market.

Senior vice president of Pivot Hotels & Resorts, Albert Smith, said: “Hotel Bella Grace has soul and charisma, bridging nearly 200 years of history and architecture. We are honoured to have the opportunity to continue the story of this extraordinary hotel.”

Having opened in August 2018, Hotel Bella Grace connects guests with both the deep-rooted history of Charleston and the modern present through its historic and contemporary design, artwork and architectural elements. The hotel’s design aesthetic, guest service and custom-designed guest rooms are reminiscent of a small flat like a French pied-à-terre.

Most guest rooms have offerings of modern, built-in kitchen amenities and intimate living rooms making Hotel Bella Grace an ideal “home away from home” for an extended stay. Other amenities include personal concierge service, evening turndown, Illy Coffee service, a fitness centre and complimentary full breakfast at The Delaney House, adjacent to the hotel.

Three P Partners principal Chip Patterson said: “Pivot has demonstrated success in managing time-honoured properties such as Florida’s iconic Don CeSar and Hotel Viking in Newport, Rhode Island. We’ve found a perfect partner in Pivot to strengthen the hotel’s bottom line while enhancing its authenticity and lifestyle experience to maximise the potential of this asset.”

Officially unveiled in January 2016, Pivot Hotels & Resorts has grown its portfolio of luxury lifestyle hotels to more than a dozen by partnering with property owners and investors that share its vision and values.

Some of the iconic hotels in its management portfolio include: The Don CeSar in Florida; Hotel Viking; The Camby, Autograph Collection in Phoenix; Hotel Zachary in Chicago; and the recently opened Bakers Cay Resort in Key Largo.
