“this is how they welcome us !!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

just checked in now.
and this is how they welcomed us.
saw around 10-12 cigratte buds in my balcony, you don't expect this from one of the best hotels in town. On top of that, I got a twin bed which wasn't discussed while i was checking in.

check in formalities were quick and reception staff were great.
hotel over all looks very good.

Our flight from Miami to London was delayed due to a technical problem, the ground crew took about 80 people to this hotel as they promised 74 rooms.We stood in a line at 4am for over 1.5 hours waiting for the very slow checkin staff to book us all in. We were made very unwelcome, no offer of seats or water. After 1.5 hours they said they only had 50 rooms. Why did they make us wait so long ? There were 3 staff behind the desk, one was more interested in talking to any passing female guest than helping us as a group. In the end after lots of shouting the remaining people were taken to the Conrad were we were made most welcome. I would not stay at this pretentious hotel.

Room Tip: Try the Conrad instead

The Epic has so much working for it. The location is ideal, walking distance to so many exciting places. The service is very professional and very friendly. The different restaurants offer high quality dishes. Tasty options!!! The spa and pool are wonderful options to feel better. Every area is well maintained and very new. In the rooms there is enough space. The beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are designed well and with luxury features. Every aspect of the Epic is in perfect coordination and harmony that a master hotel should consist of. Congratulations to it's employees and the people making the decisions in the hotel.

The only thing that this hotel is missing is the beach. Otherwise, it would be perfect! Great staff, great service, gorgeous spa (exhale spa) and a fantastic experience. We stayed there over a very busy weekend, and the service was just outstanding. I highly recommend this, especially if you would like to stay in downtown.

Definitely not worth the prices they charge. . .you feel like an anonymous person throughout your stay except for the pool attendants. My phone line didn't work the entire stay but despite asking for it to be fixed and an engineer coming once and saying it wasn't the phone but the line, nothing changed. I called for ice and after 30 minutes called again and was told to go get it myself. . .they claimed they called my room and left a message but I was in the room and there's no message. The tv got horrible reception and I was told it was the tv channel not the tv. The spa pretends it's completely separate from the hotel. . .you can't charge to your room. Definitely not returning here

Last year we stayed a week and it was amazing. This year we returned for 4 nights. Once again, the Epic did not disappoint. The desk girls are as beautiful and helpful as ever. They let as check in two hours earlier and let use the facilities. Will definitely return in 2014 to soak up Miami sun at Epic. Stayed in Room 2733. The view was better last year in Room 2708 - opposite side of hotel.

The hotel is nice and well located, nice views and great restaurant.
If you are not picky and like party stay here.
I checked in an our room was not done yet, indeed the cleaning ladies where just making the room. The remote dosent work

For me is the perfect get drunk and party hotel, but not a formal elegant and impeccable place.
