Stayed for six days at the Epic in early June 2013 and found it to be a very good hotel. Our double room was spacious and had a good-size balcony, wonderful for someone who likes fresh air. The room was on a high floor, so we had a nice view and Kimpton offers free Wi-Fi that was fast, unlike most hotels I’ve stayed at. There is an open-design bathroom with a full-size tub plus separate shower. On our first night, room service brought up a tolerable club sandwich but room service overall was good, particularly at breakfast. One hotel restaurant, Zuma, a London-based outpost, featured excellent sushi, but in an odd twist, was not able to charge the tab to our room. The hotel’s pool is also excellent but pool-side food service was extremely slow. Location-wise, the Epic is close to Brickell and most major downtown Miami convention hotels, a big plus. Highly recommended.
