We have just arrived home from honeymoon after spending our last 2 nights in Miami. I have never written a review online before but this is definitely a time to do so. As soon as we walked inside the smell in the lobby was horrible, the girl at front desk was nice but seemed so bored in her job as did most of the staff! The bar was all boarded up and shut down and there were signs in the lobby seating area saying no food or drinks allowed so was not an inviting space. We then got in to the elevator which was almost pitch black, was so dodgy and not clean! We then arrived in our room, in fairness it was the cleanest part of the hotel but it was still questionable in a lot of areas. The cleaning staff were very friendly and in fairness I think the place needs a good face lift that it wasn’t their fault the rooms were dusty and the carpets stale! The pool area was good and it’s in a great location but that is the height of it! There was also a lot of noise from the street at night! Read less

Arrived to a cold welcome at front desk after travelling from Ireland via a Cruise. This was the last leg of our holiday and we were looking forward to exploring Miami. However like previous reviews we were disappointed that the Albion Hotel refused our 2 night accommodation which we pre paid through our travel agent. After an hour waiting on the front desk manager to explain the reason why our booking was refused. He expressed that this was not his problem and we should contact our travel agent as the hotel claimed to have contacted our travel agent. Eventually we had to walk out of the hotel with 4 large suitcases and look for alternative accommodation. I still do not understand why the Front Desk Manager( A) did not offer us a room which we were willing to pay for, (B) recommend a alternative hotel in the area. This was poor customer service on his part and also after returning home we discovered that the Albion Hotel did not contact our travel agent. After a confontation in the lobby in front of other guests it was clear that our room was cancelled so the Albion Hotel could get a better room rate. We hope to return to Miami soon but will not book this hotel as they are more interested in money than customer service. Read less

We had a prepaid reservation through Expedia. When we arrived at the hotel, the manager informed us they could not accommodate us with no explanation. They sent us to a hotel half a mile away with none of the facilities available at Albion. The replacement hotel was much below the quality of the Albion.

We reserved and paid for a room with Getaroom.com. When we arrived at the hotel, we were told they did not have our room as there had been a mixup. Getaroom was great and found us a better room and hotel elsewhere
