Those New York minutes can add up pretty quickly to, well, a lot of stress. The constant ping of your cell phone, the social engagements engagements every weekend, and the seemingly never-ending pile of work don’t help either. But at the Allegria Hotel, we’re experts in leaving the city behind and taking the time to enjoy the finer things in life. Although we’re only an hour away from Manhattan, our atmosphere is worlds away. So leave your phone in your room, forget about those unanswered emails, and go out and enjoy the beauty that is Long Beach. This is the Allegria Hotel Guide to Unplugging from New York City.
If you’re joining us on a Friday after work, drop your bags off in the room, and head straight to L’Onda Lounge. Every Friday and Saturday we have live music from popular local artists from both Long Beach and New York City. From singer-songwriters to rock ‘n’ roll and jazz, there’s always a good selection of music. And the view of the Atlantic can’t be beat.
One of the best things about the Allegria Hotel is its right on the beach. You wake up, and look out your window, it’s there. You walk downstairs, and you’re on the beach.

Long Beach is a city that’s filled with history. Developed by William Reynolds, the Coney Island Dreamland mogul, the city of Long Beach garnered its reputation as the summer retreat from the city from the very beginning. With its lush gardens and spacious homes, Long Beach maintains much of that same vibe today.
