The Allegria Hotel is a chic 143-room boutique delivering a dose of Miami style right on the Long Beach boardwalk. It draws both trendy Manhattanites looking for a convenient beach getaway and business travelers attending corporate events on-site. Big rooms have light, airy decor, plush beds, and sleek limestone bathrooms; some have beach and ocean views. The restaurants serve gourmet organic cuisine and tasty cocktails, and in nice weather Atlantica restaurant opens its windows right up to the boardwalk. Hurricane Sandy hit Long Beach hard, decimating the boardwalk and flooding the hotel lobby, but the hotel is fully operational and repairs are underway on both fronts.
