We visited Miami in August and I have been meaning to leave a glowing review ever since. We arrived here from the UK after 10 days in Orlando so we could relax and see another side of Florida. The location of the Albion is superb. It is on the doorstep of South Beach as well as all of the shops and restaurants on Lincoln Ave. the location is fantastic and offers value for money compared with the 4*/5* hotels which surround it. A friend of mine who is from Miami recommended we stay in this area and we are so grateful for the advice as many hotels recommended by Travel Agents are reasonably priced and 'on the beach' but MILES away from the action - be careful! The staff were very friendly and polite so we felt welcome. The pool is a very good size too and there were many sun loungers if you wanted a day away from the action. One thing I noticed about a lot of hotels nearby was the lack of swimming pool so this is a bonus - a central hotel with a pool! The cocktail bar is well worth a visit, too. It has an old-fashioned chemist lab/apothecary feel with some of the best cocktails I've had. the prices are a little high-end but no higher than you'd expect to pay in a decent cocktail bar in a major UK city. We paid about $15 a cocktail which is about £8/£9 (August 2013) and worth it in our opinion. We stayed in a King room and got a very good deal via Booking.com so it's worth keeping an eye on prices at different times of the year and snapping up a deal when you see one - we looked at prices when we returned home and they'd increased quite a lot. There was plenty of room so I cannot complain about this - I gather from other reviews that some rooms are a lot smaller and so we'd book a King room again next time. yes, the walls are quite thin and you can hear quite a lot but to be honest, you don't go to Miami to sit in your room and it wasn't enough to annoy us or stop us visiting again. All in all we had a great time. You'd be hard-pushed to find a hotel of a similar standard in an outstanding location for the same price. we are hoping to visit again in a couple of years.
