This 1930s' Art Deco hotel gained new life after a 2005 renovation by the Rubell family, best known for its Studio 54 connection. For a while, the venue's mod design and surprisingly low rates made the Albion one of the best-kept secrets in South Beach. But a decade later, the hotel needs a bit of TLC and rates are not always such a bargain. The 100-room boutique property still retains some advantages over the local competition, though, including a sunny courtyard pool, a hipster cocktail lounge, and relatively spacious rooms. Be prepared to pay stiff tariffs for breakfast, valet parking, and beach chairs.
