What You'll Get
After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Today's Groupon offers respite from the chaos: for $149, you get a one-night stay in a beachview king room at the Allegria Hotel in Long Beach (up to a $329 value).
Located within walking distance of the LIRR, Allegria Hotel gives escapees from Manhattan's opulent island-prison a beachfront sanctuary complete with 24-karat amenities and luxury comforts. After modeling a plush robe or luxuriating in a scented soak in the limestone bathroom, take a stroll along the boardwalk, contemplate the naval battles of ghost ships from your ocean-view abode, or sleep away siesta time while swaddled in plush Egyptian cotton bedding. When hunger descends like a clumsy ceiling assassin, fill hollow stomachs at Allegria's chic Atlantica Restaurant, where executive chef Todd Jacobs nimbly conjures gourmet meals out of locally grown and organic ingredients. Once the moon comes up, explore Long Beach's convenient convergence of restaurants, galleries, nightclubs, and all-night fireplace stores.
The Allegria Hotel was named a fall getaway by Westchester magazine; although Yelpers give it a 2.5-star average, Citysearchers give it a 3.5-star average and TripAdvisors give it an average of 3.5 owl eyes:
- Redone in ultra-modern whites and glass, sandblasted dried-starfish-studded walls, and abutting the two-and-a-half-mile Long Beach boardwalk, Allegria Hotel, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, is heaven as conceived by its intrepid owner, real-estate developer Allen Rosenberg. Only 20 minutes from JFK airport, Allegria has become a big hit with international airline pilots. – Malerie Yolen-Cohen, Westchester
- The Allegria is a very nice hotel. The furnishings were very modern and also elegant. From the moment we walked in the quality was easy to recognize. The staff was very nice and accommodating and the rooms were spacious. The best part of our stay had to be the lounge. – Darbley07, TripAdvisor
