I have to say my stay at this hotel was very unpleasant.. We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights at the end of our 3 week honeymoon and I was very disappointed! Had to complain to reception to change rooms the morning after we arrived because they had put us in an adjoining room,there was a family in the next room with extremely loud kids... Only to be told they had nothing better but rest assured the family will be checking out today.. the same thing happened the next morning!! The hotel was very grubby and could do with a good clean especially the front of the hotel as you can see by the pics! The only good thing about the hotel was it’s location!! Read less

I went for a weekend to Miami and decided to stay in The Albion Hotel because of the location but was more than satisfied with my stay and will be booking there again in the future.

We arrived earlier than check in time but the front desk still let us use the pool area without a problem, they also helped us book tours and answered most questions we had about the area. The room was just like the websie said, no mystery there. will defenitely recommend to anyone who is thinking about satying around the area. :) Read less

Stayed here for three nights after a fantastic cruise..... reported the smell of cannabis to a member of staff on day one who did nothing but laugh.... after working out which guest room it came from this was then reported to the manager. Twice. Even when the corridor was freshly filled of the smell and he was informed we had to sleep with a towel blocking the bottom of the door to stop our child being able to breathe it in... nothing has been done to rectify the situation, move us away from the issue or recompense us.... he said he would ask the cleaner to investigate it (but there was a do not disturb sign on the door constantly); I would suggest the management should investigate and take action before guests have to contact the police themselves. I am not knowledgable of the Florida drugs laws but am led to believe this is illegal activity that the management are now complicit in. On the day of leaving we spoke to another manager who said nothing had been put on the staff handover sheet and instead of asking which room the smell came from, he was only interested in my room number.... like I was making an unnecessary fuss. Police have now been advised. Read less

We are currently staying at this hotel with family and have informed the staff of the smell of cannabis along the hotel corridors. He laughed then told us he was shocked then walked away. They clearly know due to the amount of air fresheners they have plugged in and the fire door propped open. What a disappointment. Tonight’s smell is worse then… Read more
We are currently staying at this hotel with family and have informed the staff of the smell of cannabis along the hotel corridors. He laughed then told us he was shocked then walked away. They clearly know due to the amount of air fresheners they have plugged in and the fire door propped open. What a disappointment. Tonight’s smell is worse then yesterday’s by far. The previous guest in our room must have smoked too as it smells of stale smoke; despite the sign saying a hefty cleaning fine will be added if it’s noted. DO NOT BOOK UNLESS YOU WANT TO INHALE OTHER PEOPLES CANNABIS. Read less
