This was our third stay at the EPIC. The property is beautiful with a great pool on the 16th floor. The staff and the associated service are world class. Many of the rooms have outstanding views of the Bay or the City. Situated in the Brickell section of Miami, you have no need for a car, and can walk to... More

We stayed at the Epic (club level) for three days in Mid-May after spending the previous days in South beach. We contacted Epic ahead of our schedule to confirm a couple of special requests and the Resort Manager, Jacqueline Ploettner, was exceptional in responding quickly and confirmed all our requests. Jacqueline and all the staff we had contact with in... More

The Hotel has every amenity you can think of. Our room was so beautiful - huge bed - bathroom with open window to the room - the decor was modern, sleek and comfortable. Our balcony had a breathtaking view of the canal towards South Beach. When my husband saw the room, he said - honey, I feel like Paris Hilton.... More

Great city get-away. Location is perfect because you have an easy route to 95. The pool area is very polished. Bar has a great selection of rum. Breakfest is very nice on the balcony. Very tasty and relaxing.

I was here on a convention in January 2011 and reviewed it then. This time around, brought the hubby. With some trepidation, I was wondering whether my recollections and expectations of the " fabulosity" of the hotel would be dashed as I had repeatedly told my husband he would love, love, love it. I didn't have to convince him at... More

This is the second time we have stayed here, and the only place we will stay. They are so attentive to your needs, they remember your name, and well, just "Kiss your Butt". The rooms are beautiful, Food is great, Spa wonderful. If you have the opportunity to stay here it is well worth it. "B" you are the best!

We arrived slightly concerned having two young children in tow to this trendy city escape, but these fears quickly vanished as soon as we had handed over our keys to the valet and made our way to the dedicated check in for club level guests. Although we cant compare to the standard rooms, i would whole heartedly recommend upgrading if... More

Having been to South beach many times (The Delano) my wife and I opted for something a little less club scene-ish to get away and relax. I never stayed at a Kimpton property before and wasn't even aware of the EPIC Hotel until I happened upon a nice package deal on travelocity. We planned this trip with 1 day notice... More
