Just got back from a 3 night stay at the Epic. The hotel was great! Excellent downtown location that is close to Riverwalk and Brickell (you can also use the free Metro Mover). The hotel has a cool vibe, with two great restaurants. The 16th floor pool has a great view of the bay, is heated, and has a great atmosphere.
We had a 1- bdr suite, which was roomy and beautiful. The 5-6pm free wine tasting is a nice touch. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly – especially Aubrey at the front desk who helped make my birthday stay extra special. We will definitely being going back.
