I stay in hotels on business pretty much from Sunday through Thursday and I have got to say that the Epic Hotel in Miami is my favorite. The hotel staff always are warm and friendly and, simply, the best! Somehow they always make me feel as though I am an old friend just coming to visit, even when I haven't been back in months. My favorite thing about the Epic is the guestroom bathrooms. They are beautiful, clean and huge. I stay in a lot of 4-5 star hotels and I must confess the Epic bathrooms are the best! I love that one can take a luxurious bath and watch the flat screen TV through the open window into the main guestroom at the same time. I also LOVE the restaurant "Area 31". What can I say -- it is outstanding. The Chef is fantastic and the service is what one would expect from any Kimpton Hotel -- excellent. The pool deck is incredible with 3 pools and a gorgeous view of the ocean channels. And I am very impressed with the fitness center and the fact that I can take their yoga classes while I am staying at the hotel (for a small charge). All in all, I can't say enough about this hotel. The Epic Hotel is one of Miami's best kept secrets! Shhhh.
