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
i think that the amount of money spent at your hotel, the beach chairs would be more suitable than a folding chair. We attended a private event where the hotel security was rude and treated us poorly. In addition, we were scolded at the pool for having food purchased in your hotel but we weren't allowed to eat. We were told its from the outside since we didn't purchase it on the rooftop. Ridiculous. For all these reasons, we will not be back nor recommend anyone else.
The rooftop pool was amazing! Ashley was so great! She went above and beyond to makes sure from the second we stepped foot near the pool we had everything we needed from tasty drinks to fresh towels! Perfect spot for our stay-cation!
Emily was our manager and Chris and Mike were at the bar as well as Sam and Nicole. Everyone was excellent and friendly and definitely improved our stay. Thank you so much Allegria Hotel, we’ll be visiting again soon!
I booked this mon-wed getaway during Memorial day weekend and was so looking forward to it at this hotel. Check in was at 4pm, check out at 11am..so really it didn't even amount to 2 full days. No one made the bed, or emptied the trash., no water in room...only. one of two elevators worked and it took 15 minutes to get to the lobby or pool deck. They had false advertising...saying $5 prosecco among other specials at their bar, yet I was charged $12 because " the sign was wrong"... what can I say...a true disappointment that management didn't care that many visitors while I was there had the SAME experience. If you yelled and screamed and carried on, they comped some people It shoudlnt take that to have a nice stay or be listened to.
We stayed at Allegria Hotel near the end of May so, nice weather but still off season. The location couldn’t have better...oceanfront right on the boardwalk! The weather had not been the best during the few weeks before our stay which I guess is why the hotel was uncrowded. This worked out well as we were upgraded, without even asking, from oceanfront room to oceanfront two room, two bath suite. The suite was clean and attractive, the beds were comfortable and the view was fabulous. As an additional perk, the sitting room and the bedroom each had a 50” TV...flat screen, of course. One thing that could have been a problem is the parking. The hotel has no private parking lot so we needed to find parking on the street. We got lucky as someone pulled out of a spot right in front of the hotel as we got there but it did make me wonder, since it was an issue off season, what must it be like in the middle of the summer. They do have valet parking for $30 but didnt bring it up until asked so space may be limited in their garage. We did not take the dinner package but ordered a la carte at the restaurant on premises (partly because we didn’t want to lose our parking space to go to another restaurant). It turned out to be a good idea because we had a nice tasty meal for substantially less than the package would have cost.
One issue that bothers me is that they charge the same $36 “resort fee” even off season when amenities usually included (pool and beach access) are not available. All we got for the $36 were WiFi and a mediocre buffet breakfast. Another problem came up during checkout when it turned out that our MasterCard gift card was not acceptable for payment in spite of THREE separate assurances that it would be fine. It would have avoided an awkward and aggravating last impression of the hotel if the staff was advised of that policy.
