This review is biased because I stay at the EPIC Kimpton in Miami all the time, in fact whenever I am in Miami. I have stayed at many different hotels in Miami, and I keep coming back to the EPIC. The Mandarin Oriental in Miami is also excellent but almost always considerably more expensive. I have done the rounds in Miami, so believe me you will struggle to beat the EPIC. There are some issues like the hotel getting so popular the valet drop off hotel arrival area is turning into a circus and I have suffered very poor service (previous visit) in the understaffed bar area, but these are not (yet) deal breakers and I will be back at the EPIC again next week!!
