Beal House, a Tapestry Collection Hotel debuts in Fort Walton Beach

Beal House Fort Walton Beachfront, Tapestry Collection by Hilton has made its debut in the Florida Panhandle.

Located on Okaloosa Island, this six-story, 100-key hotel reopened following a down-to-the-studs renovation and a rebrand designed to merge the property’s new identity with the destination’s notable past.

The reimagined Beal House is owned and operated by South Carolina-based OTO Development, which is part of The Johnson Group. The hotel comprises 100 rooms—60 with balconies overlooking the water—all designed with clean lines, coastal touches and plenty of thoughtful conveniences like storage cubbies to stow all the gear travelers bring to the beach, the company reports.

Amenities include a fitness center, outdoor pool, library and on-site restaurant, The Remedy Coastal Kitchen + Bar, which specializes in “Coastal Fresh with a Dash of Cajun.”

OTO Development partnered on the Beal House project with Pond, architect and interior designer; Robins & Morton, general contractor; and Kaleidoscope Design Factory, art vendor.

The property is located less than 1 mile from the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Convention Center, the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park and The Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island. It is part of a strong drive-to market that’s popular with leisure travelers while also catering to military and government guests with proximity to Eglin Airforce Base, Hurlburt Field and private-sector defense companies.
