nice hotel on beach near nyc

I am staying in NYC over Christmas week and would like to spend the following week at the ocean. Rather than flying across the continent to known stomping grounds of northern California, perhaps there is a nice comfy, beautiful place to stay on the east coast which is somewhat easy to get to and from. There must be such a place! Any clues?

Are you looking for someplace warm, or just someplace on the ocean? Warm will require flying south to Florida or similar.

Yes, the ocean in the Northeast is absolutely frigid at that time of year, and beaches are often frost-covered.

If you want to stay on the Beach, Your best bet is Atlantic City, NJ

There are no Hotels on the Beach in NYC that I am familiar with

(There are a few on Fire Island on Long Island, but Im sure they are closed for the Winter)

Thanks for your replies. I was actually thinking north somewhat near nyc, like maybe on long island landmass, but it is sounding like it is a no go. Hmm... more work for the Thinking Cap.

There are some hotels on the beach in northern Monmouth County New Jersey, but wouldn't recommend spending a week that time of the year....cold! possible snow! not nice to be outdoors.

Atlantic City is not a very nice place to be unless you are really into gambling.

The Allegria Hotel in Long Beach (Long Island) is on the oceanfront and near a train to NYC.

What are you expecting to do on a beach n ithe northeast at Xmas time?? There are hotels in Montauk on the ocean like the Panoramic View or in Spring Lake, New Jersey across from the beach, but this is out of season, cold and sort of deserted.

Even with the very cold weather, it is usually made even worse by breeze/wind off the ocean making it feel even colder.

Long Beach in winter is absolutely frigid. And depressing. Don't.
