OTO Development Opens New Hyatt Place Panama City Beach / Beachfront

224-Room Hotel is First Beachfront Hyatt on The Gulf Coast

USA, Spartanburg, South Carolina. August 02, 2022

The Gulf Coast's first beachfront Hyatt Place hotel is now open in Panama City Beach, bringing contemporary design and thoughtful service to the heart of the Florida Panhandle. Hyatt Place Panama City Beach/Beachfront provides an ideal location along one of the top beaches in the United States and one of the 10 most Instagrammed beaches in the world.

The 11-story hotel tower is developed and managed by OTO Development, part of The Johnson Group. Project partners include architect and design firm Bullock Tice Associates; interior designer P3 Design Collective; and general contractor Robins & Morton.

"We designed this hotel to allow guests to take full advantage of Panama City Beach's sugar-white sand and turquoise waters," said Corry Oakes, CEO of OTO Development. "Whether visiting for business or leisure travel, guests will appreciate the relaxed beach vibe, resort-style amenities and our signature Coconut Charlie's Beach Bar & Grill."

The arrival experience at Hyatt Place Panama City Beach/Beachfront is uniquely appealing, with a porte cochère that offers guests a stunning view of the Gulf of Mexico from the hotel's front door. Aesthetics are airy, light and energizing, with sweeping curtain windows and bold, geometric accents adding interest to the stucco façade.

With 224 thoughtfully designed guestrooms and suites - some with bunk beds to better accommodate young families - Hyatt Place Panama City Beach/Beachfront provides dedicated spaces to work, sleep and play to allow for a seamless transition from work to relaxation.

A swimming pool complete with a lazy river, hot tub and private cabanas are among the many elevated amenities guests can enjoy. The hotel offers conveniences including complimentary breakfast, a Cozy Corner sectional sleeper sofa, spacious desk and mini-fridge in every room, a 24/7 market and a well-equipped, waterfront fitness center allowing guests to get the most out of their stay. Gatherings of all kinds can be accommodated in the hotel's 1,316 square feet of flexible waterfront meeting and event space, which extends onto a covered balcony overlooking the Gulf.

"We're excited to welcome guests to the first Hyatt Place hotel in Panama City Beach," said Tyler Davies, General Manager of Hyatt Place Panama City/Beachfront. "Our beachfront hotel puts visitors in a perfect location, steps away from the white sand and clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico, offering an uncomplicated experience in a casual atmosphere."

Hyatt Place Panama City Beach/Beachfront is the third location to feature Coconut Charlie's, OTO's proprietary beach restaurant concept serving coastal-American dishes and handcrafted cocktails, with bar seating both inside and out. For those who want to venture beyond the hotel, Pier Park - a popular outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment destination - is only a short walk away.

Hotel Law: Legal Consequences

The pandemic provoked more than a global health crisis. It also disrupted world economies, financial markets and social systems on a massive scale. Naturally, there are legal consequences associated with this kind of severe business disruption and the issues will be litigated for years to come. In the hotel industry, there are several issues that are currently germane. One issue pertains to the legal obligations hotels have to re-hire employees who were laid off due to the pandemic. Lawsuits have been filed by former employees who claim that certain promises were made to them when they were furloughed, and they are suing hotels for breach of implied contract. Another major issue involves hotels suing their insurance companies for failing to cover their business losses due to the pandemic. Still other hotels have brought lawsuits against local governments for the strict restrictions that were placed on their businesses, chiefly restaurants and bars. These are just a few of the legal issues that will be addressed in the December issue of the Hotel Business Review.
