Set just off Lincoln Road and one block from the sand, the Albion South Beach is a perfect example of the 1930s “ocean liner” architecture found in Miami. The building is bowed like a ship and has porthole windows. The art deco lobby is furnished in nautical navy and white against a red accent wall and two-story windows. An extensive art collection owned by the Rubell family (known for their connection to Studio 54) decorates the building.
Originally designed by Igor Polevitzky of Havana’s Hotel Nacional fame in 1939, the property was last renovated in 2005. With only 100 guest rooms, the boutique hotel pampers visitors with oversized pillows, complimentary Wi-Fi, cucumber-based toiletries and morning newspapers delivered to the doorstep. Dogs are welcome to stay for an additional fee. Guests receive VIP entry to many of the nearby nightclubs.
Portholes are carved into the side of the elevated pool where occasional shows are performed. The Repour Café is open for breakfast and lunch with the option to dine indoors or on the terrace and serves complimentary coffee and tea throughout the day. After dark, the bar stays open, dispensing handcrafted cocktails. There is also a modern, spacious fitness center on site, and guests can stroll a block to the beachfront promenade to walk, jog or bike with the best views in South Beach.
