It features elegant, minimalist guest rooms with custom-designed fixtures and fittings. Clientele and the local crowd gather at the mezzanine-level pool, which has portholes that allow courtyard strollers an underwater view of swimmers.

Maximo made our stay a great experience. Hotel is older, yet extremely conveniently located. Breakfast was sufficient and inexpensive. Staff is fantastic, accommodated our group in every way, provided conference room with a complete set up and projector and was helpful throughout!

We have stayed at the Albion multiple times over the past several years and have always been satisfied with our stay. The hotel is very centrally located, with easy access to the beach, shopping and multiple dining options. Staff are always helpful and friendly. Both the common areas and rooms are kept clean and are comfortable. The fitness center is a nice ammenity to have. Our only concern has been other guests behaving irresponsibly in the pool area, leaving trash in and around the pool(cups, cigarette butts, bottle caps, etc.) which lowered our comfort and safety level this trip. It would be helpful if hotel staff periodically monitored guest use for unacceptable behavior and took action. Looking forward to returning for a week in October. Thanks again for a pleasant stay.

Oh, goodness, where to start. It is old, feels like it would be difficult to get it really clean. The beds were very uncomfortable and had flat pillows. Curtains would not close to keep the light out. No blow dryer! That is just almost standard equipment in any hotel these days, isn’t it? Marijuana odor has permeated the halls and elevator. … Read more
Oh, goodness, where to start. It is old, feels like it would be difficult to get it really clean. The beds were very uncomfortable and had flat pillows. Curtains would not close to keep the light out. No blow dryer! That is just almost standard equipment in any hotel these days, isn’t it? Marijuana odor has permeated the halls and elevator. We were told we would have a water view but there was none. We were too tired to go down and complain about it. If you are going here to be near the action, party it up all night and get no sleep, this is a great place for you. I was told when I made the reservation (at a good rate because I booked in February) valet parking was suspended but there was a parking garage a couple blocks away for $20. I called ahead of time and they said it was still suspended and $20 for parking garage. We were about two miles away and called and were told there was a loading zone in front and we could park and drop our things. When we got there ALL THREE loading zones were full and we parked in the cab spot and were told when we went in we had to get out right away or get a ticket. We didn’t see any people in the lobby checking in that might belong to those three cars and, as a matter of fact one of the cars stayed parked there at least 6 hours and the hotel didn’t tag it or call police. Staff tagged our bags and we headed where we were told the parking was. When we got there they said it was only day parking and no overnight. We circled blocks and found two other parking garages, both full, before we finally found one 4 blocks away that was $25 for 12 hours on Fri, Sat, Sun so be prepared to pay $50 to park overnight. Walls are very thin and unfortunately we had the drunk group next to us screaming, fighting and slamming doors. We were woken out of a dead sleep more than once, called down twice and were told someone had already come up and talked to them. It didn’t stop them. They would quiet for a bit then escalate into another round of fighting and slamming doors. I don’t know at what point the hotel should be obligated to call police and eject people but I think one visit to the room is fair and then the6 should be gone (and I’m sure we weren’t the only ones calling because these people were out in the hall screaming several times) We did get a great recommendation for dinner and the man at the front desk was doing his best to be helpful when I griped about parking at check in. They all seemed a bit lost about what to do for our terrible night of no sleep and we were offered nothing. I just couldn’t get out of there fast enough. Read less

We stayed at the Albion due to its location for shopping. We were not disappointed. Great location. Checkin was efficient, room was good, everything worked, WiFi was consistent, Happy Hour drink was good. I wanted coffee at 6am and security walked me accross the road to show me where to get coffee and made sure I was safe - excellent service - thank you. We did not eat in the Hotel as we had so many options to choose from. The lobby is quirky and there is a nice oasis to sit and enjoy a drink outside. Our visit was short but we will definitely stay here again if we are travelling through MIami. Read less
