The Allegria is a sleek nine-story boutique property on West Broadway, a beach- and boardwalk-fronting strip just five blocks from the train station. Outside, the look is simple, with windows all around and moody accent lights that illuminate the exterior at night. Inside, clean minimalism and ocean views reign; think white-on-white furnishings, sand-hued hardwood floors and a lobby that’s fresh a 2013 renovation.
Bed and Bath
The 143 guestrooms are elegant in their simplicity; sandy wood furnishings, crisp white linens and pebble accents augment the hotel’s beachfront vibe. The limestone bathrooms come with rainfall showers and cushy bathrobes, and many rooms have floor-to-ceiling French windows that open out onto the Atlantic. In-room amenities include mini-fridges, free WiFi and flat-screen televisions.
The Atlantica restaurant is popular with the locals for its brunch, seafood buffet nights and boardwalk views, but it’s pricier than most of the area’s restaurants (appetizers are around $20; entrees $40). If you’re looking for something more casual, the adjacent L’Onda Lounge offers outdoor seating and live music, plus wine, beer, cocktails and small bites. The rooftop pool is on the small side, but it has plenty of room for sunbathing and overlooking the expanse of beach below. There’s no spa, but there’s a well-equipped fitness center on the eighth floor.
In the Area
Pack in some beach action with surfboard rentals from local favorite Unsound Surf or beach cruisers from Local Cycles. The local restaurants and bars are clustered on Park Avenue, with options ranging from standard sushi at Himawari to German beer and sausages at Currywurst Company. Finish the day at the beach with self-serve frozen treats from Tutti Frutti.
How to Get There
All area hotels were booked. We did not know what type of hotel we were going to and we were very apprehensive. The hotel was beautiful and they had the most outstanding staff. We were greeted by smiles by hotel desk Ithalo and Devin. Christian the bartender went out of his way to make sure we got something to eat, even offering us his own food. The next day while waiting for our flight we had great service and conversation with Alison, who made our wait more bearable. We loved the area and plan on taking a trip there in the summer. Thanks for the great stay and service.
The Atlantica of Allegria Hotel is where we had our breakfast. At first glance, I loved the beachy ambiance there and the view of the broad walk and the sea. The brunch however, is very average. It's a hit or a miss. I loved the Octopus but I found the Crunchy Calamari tacos to be very average. I liked the Salmon but I hated the freshly squeezed juice. All in all , a good place to hangout with friends or colleagues before heading to the beach.
We loved our stay at the Allegria from check- in to check- out we were treated like VIP Guests. Nick Dandrea was a total delight to deal with- Very caring and always greeted us with a big smile! Mona at the front desk also could not do enough for us! The rooms are big, beautiful and spotlessly clean. The Hotel actually smell good! Best location, easy access to the LIRR which makes it easy to get to NYC. Loved the Bar and breakfast buffet. Great for kids, half a block from a Play park, right on the boardwalk- lots to do. We cant wait to come back- I would give this Hotel 10 stars if I could! A big thank you to Nick Dandrea for making this trip so very special!
We checked in for a wedding- and we were taken back by how stunning the hotel was. I mentioned it to Nick the desk clerk and without hesitation - we were upgraded to an ocean front room. The room was magnificent- modern/luxurious and the view was breathtaking. I get up every morning early, and I went to the lobby to see about a water bottle. I was met by the desk clerk, Ithallo and asked about water. He gives me 3 bottles of water and he was an absolute pleasure to speak with. It’s a little after 6 am and this man was full of pep, energy, so polite and you can tell he loved his job. I cannot say enough good things about the hotel and their staff. We will be back.
The hotel is beautiful very clean. Check-in to check-out friendly, helpful staff, Rooms have fabulous ocean views. Bar makes good cocktails. Little pricey but well worth the extra money.for the accommodations.
