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 have stayed at the Allegria during the Winter during the slow season. It is the nicest hotel in the immediate area and I highly recommend it. The rooms are modern and generally clean. Staff is friendly and the breakfast at the hotel is great.
An overall excellent experience at the Allegria, the front desk staff was excellent, friendly, and offered great local recommendations. The rooms were clean and the hotel in great condition. We visited in the off season and got a great rate but the location to the beach and town, I can only imagine how fun the hotel is during the summer.
We had an enjoyable stop for a drink at the bar on the boardwalk. Allison was tending bar and she made a delicious drink and her friendly personality made us glad we stopped. With that beautiful view of the ocean...our delicious crab cake sliders and drinks.....we'll surely be returning on our next visit down to the boardwalk
Stopped by Allegria after the Polar Bear Plunge and it was PACKED! Despite the crowds, my server Nicole provided us with great service! She made sure we were fully able to take advantage of the drink specials going on, which were amazing. I had never been to Allegria’s bar before, but I will definitely be back!
I was at the Allegria last night with my sisters that I haven’t seen in years. We were debating where to go and decided to stay at the Alegría. Wendy was so welcoming, entertaining, and made us the most amazing drinks. We will definetly be going back to the allegria for future reunions.
