Allegria Tweets Back: First we have the Allegria Hotel responding to my roof top adventure post via twitter:
Allegria Hotel (@Allegria_Hotel)
I thought that was kinda cool and good PR. I am somewhat amazed by the comments from those who don’t understand the power of selling drinks. In my post I wrote how the Allegria should have had a server working the rooftop. My reasons were the following:
- Drinks bring in a ton of money for the hotel, employees and Long Beach (taxes). Alcohol is what keeps most places in business!
- Being asked if you want something makes you feel like you are being taken care of (people like that stuff).
- Being asked if you want something makes you feel like you’re being watched. (Instant hotel security).
It’s as simple as that! I like this hotel. I stayed there. I’ve eaten there several times. I don’t live near it, so I can’t complain about the parking situation, but I do think Allegria Hotel is an asset to Long Beach, whether you like it or not.
Parking Meter Poll: (Read – Do You Want Parking Meters In Long Beach?)
As of now (July 25rd, 8:30am) there have been 144 responses and I am very surprised by these numbers:
I guess the polls are still open. I will send these results to Jack & the gang by the end of the week. If you haven’t voted yet, please do. The poll has an IP address filter, which only allows you to vote once per location. That is, unless you’re smart enough to change your IP or create a proxy. In that case, vote away.
