I made a reservation in November 2019 for January 2020. My card was charged. I was to be refunded as I cancelled the reservation within days of making it. I’ve called your reservations department numerous times and sent multiple emails. No response. My next call will be to the Florida Attorney General. This needs to be addressed immediately!!!!!!!

A very comfortable destination hotel in Miami Beach. Our room was spacious, well-appointed and secure. The decor was classic Art Deco with modern touches. The pool is fabulous and secluded! Didn't visit the bar here, but it looked friendly and cozy. Would stay here again!

We booked the Albion hotel in south beach Miami as an ‘upgrade’ to the standard hotel as the Virgin Holidays advisor told us it was a nice hotel. There is nothing wrong with the Albion, however there is nothing right about it either. The hotel markets itself as old world 1930s Art Deco style. If that means it smells, it’s dark, it’s shabby, it has poor service and does not live up to the hype, then it’s spot on. We booked two twin rooms for 3 nights. We actually booked standard rooms with a request for twins. This was supported by emails from virgin holidays stating that this would be fine. On arrival the hotel had ignored the request and told us little could be done as they were fully booked. We had doubles and that was that. On arrival the hotel smelt.. a cross between a wet dog and a damp gentlemen’s barbers shop. There are two small lifts for 100 rooms and during our stay only one worked. We never found the stairs! This meant for long waits. The rooms were ok. Rough plaster must be the 1930s style plus missing shower curtain and sockets coming off the wall in the bathroom must also be from the bygone era the hotel us going for. The super fast broadband was also akin to dial up speed. The rooms are also so so dark even with all the lights on.. To be fair, the hotel was clean and the rooms were cleaned well daily. The shower was warm and the toilet worked, even if the toilet seat was not actually attached. In summary if your expectations are low and you enjoy back packing and hostels, the Albion will be like 5 star luxury. If you are expecting a hotel befitting of a decent holiday company, then you will be very disappointed. Pay a few extra dollars a night and stay somewhere nicer! Read less
