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
It's a nice hotel, nice modern rooms with a very nice bar/lounge area. The bathroom is were all of my issues are. First there is no lock on the bathroom door, this is always an issue for me. Secondly, the bathroom door is a pocket glass door and you can see through it. Yes the glass door is frosted but you can certainly see is someone is using the bathroom, there is no privacy at all. The shower had an overhead shower head (with very little water pressure) and there was also a hand held shower sprayer too, which was very nice. The problem with the shower is that there is no door, there is a small half glass divider. As hard as I tried to keep the water in the shower, I was not successful, a ton of water went all over the floor and I had to use two other towels to dry it up. The rooms and bathrooms are updated and look very nice. If the bathroom did not have these issues I would give it five stars.
Wedding Weekend stay. Bridal Suite great! View beautiful! Closet needed.
Most staff happy to help. Bed comfortable. Leslie and Jess very helpful with planning. Rooftop ballroom beautiful with ocean view.
Need to improve on numerous levels especially housekeeping. Towels should be replaced in bathroom after using. Housekeeping did not leave shampoo/ conditioner when used up.very disappointing. Most of the lobby staff is good. The coffee shop off lobby has excellent staff
