I stay in the Epic about once a month during my trips to Miami. The staff whether they know me or not are always fantastic and willing to go out of their way to accomodate me. 9 times out of ten i have an upgrade awaiting me when i arrive. the views from the hotel are fantastic and Area 31 and Zuma are hotspots. I would recommend this hotel and venue for business or pleasure and give them the chance to stretch for you and you will not be disappointed. If you by chance have to wait outside for a cab, there are always beautiful boats, cars and women to admire. some of the best scenery in all of Miami.
