We spent an amazing week visiting Miami whilst staying at the Epic. We arrived to find we had been booked into a room with twin beds but were quickly moved to a room with one large king and with a better view off the bay on the 26th floor. The hotel provided a cot for our 4 month old which looked a little old but did the job. The room and bathroom were both very spacious and the decor looked very new and clean. I thought it was well located for town and only a short drive to south beach and other main attractions. Overall a great hotel! Very impressive.
Only minor issues are;
1. My husband's credit card was blocked on suspicion of fraud by the bank. Instead of leaving a message in our room asking us to contact reception or calling us to advise that this was the case, they simply locked us out of our room and we had to go to the front desk to find out the problem. Quite annoying when you've booked to stay a week with a baby, so hardly a candidate for "doing a runner"! Also, arriving back to your room with multiple bags and a tired baby, last thing you want to do is then go back down to reception.
2. The restaurant was closed for refurb so limited food available....simple sandwiches and crisps...but they were tasty.
3. No option other than valet parking at $40 a day and then they expect tips on top of that....but then guess it is a big city so probably should expect it.
Other than these minor issues, the service was generally very good. We also had a couple's full body massage at the spa which was very good!
