“Stay the day before cruise :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Stay here the day before our cruise & we loved it! Our room was on the 22 nd. floor with a beautiful view of the bay. The room was very clean & the balcony view was breathtaking. Staffs was very helpful, no problem on getting a taxi to the cruise terminal.

Stayed August 2013, traveled with family

We were happy to stay in this area of Miami. We scored a great deal on expedia and loved every minute. Enjoyed exploring the area and the great restaurants near by. The hotel is beautiful..we relaxed by the pool and enjoyed the view from our room. Breakfast on the terrace each morning was perfect!

Top notch service, amazing food, great friendly knowledgable staff. The rooms were impeccable, the housekeeping staff was on point with making up the room. It was my first time at Epic and certainly not my last!

My husband and I stayed at Epic for a getaway, adult only weekend. We had an amazing time. The service was outstanding especially at the pool where we were truly waited on in 5 star style. The restaurant on site was outstanding as well. We would recommend this hotel for anyone looking to relax and enjoy Miami to its fullest

My husband & I stayed at the Epic for 2 nights last week & we could not have been happier. The staff was amazing! They made us feel so welcome & at home, every request we had was addressed immediately. The rooms were beautiful & clean. We travel often & we would certainly return to the Epic when we are in Miami.

In March of this year I decided to retire and travel around the US in our new 42' 5th wheel trailer. We were so excited to leave California and spend a good amount of our time down in the Florida Keys. We left in April and just returned last week in August.
While we were camping in Key Largo a few weeks, we decided to venture up to Miami for 2 days and visit some very close friends. Since we stayed at the Epic Hotel last year we thought we would give it a try again. To say the least we we so delighted with the staff and hospitality, the ambiance, the scenery, the room, the food and frankly everything about the hotel.
Our friends joined us one afternoon for lunch downtown and although they live in the area they had not had the pleasure of experiencing the Kimpton standards. When they drove up they were a little bit apprehensive about having their old toyota parked, after all they were amazed at the beautiful cars that were pulling up to the round drive. They were greeted by some very sweet guys that directed them into the front desk area. Once there, they inquired about waiting for us until we came down from our room, the front desk clerks were very impressive to our friends. While they waited they were offered something to drink. We even received a phone call from the front desk letting us know we had someone waiting. Wow, now that is service!
We will be headed back to Miami in March for a cruise and we will arrive a few days early to stay at the Epic. As well, we will be attending a few Giants games in the next month in San Francisco and always stay at a Kimpton property.
Keep up the good work Epic staff and we will keep coming back!!!

Room Tip: Over looking where the yachts park.
