This is my third time staying at the epic!
Water view high floor is the only way to go, otherwise pick another hotel by the water! If you can get the above room type then you will be thrilled with is hotel! The staff is very friendly and overall the service is great! They are truly pet friendly, no additional charges at all.
The mimosas at Area31 are amazing! Reserve ahead and do not miss dining at Zuma! Killer restaurant in the lobby of the Epic! Seriously one of the best meals we have ever eaten!
I love the Kimpton hotels in NYC and the epic rates up there with them. Clean large well laid out rooms. Pull out couches in all the suites... The 01 room on the corner have huge balconies that overlook the water... So great!
