“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

We stayed at the EPIC when we moved to Miami last year while we waited on our furniture to arrive. It was clean, modern and had great restaurants. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. We also had a lovely view of the Miami River and a little of the bay. We highly recommend the hotel.

I was truly impressed with the hotel. The ambiance was nice and the room was quite large. The view of the river and neighboring buildings at night weren't as bad as I thought they we would be. I highly recommend Epic even for a night stay.

Beautiful lobby, spacious rooms, delicious in house restaurant (Area 31) was incredible, heard that Zuma is even more so. Had a king view room w/ balcony which was perfect. Love the Kimpton chain, they are our "go-to" hotels when not staying at vacation rentals. Kimptons are consistently consistent and wonderful.

Service, setting, cleanliness, appointments, comfort, customer care, In-Touch membership are all exemplary.

Can't go wrong, highly recommend Kimptons and Epic at every occasion.

Green Features: Eco-friendly and recycle program is reassuring, promising and more reason to stay at this and any Kimpton.

First off i'd like to thank the G.M. Brett Orlando who has been quiet gracious and there for all my concerns. Working in the same industry but filling ships i truly do like when the service is just as good as the accommodations.

The first time i stayed at the Epic in Miami was in September and will be staying tomorrow night for Valentines Day with my girlfriend(which they assisted me with flowers etc). From the second you pull up to the lobby i could tell it was going to be a great time. Coming into the private elevators going up to my room the first thing i loved was the view, right in the heart of Downtown, and the view was amazing(across from the ViceRoy) and the waterway below. What i especially did like was the handwritten note Brett left in my room; I'm big when it comes to the small things.
Room service is great, room is great and look forward to going to Area 31 this time which i didn't have time last time as well as the pool area.

I decided to book a room for the night since we were having a romantic dinner at the hotel Zuma. The hotel is gorgeous, the service is top notch! We asked for a late checkout and it was no problem. The door key even worked after check out time. There is a great happy hour on the 16th floor by the pool. Valet was very courteous and professional even when it was a madhouse. This is our first visit to this hotel and being Miami locals it will not be our last! Loved loved this hotel!

This is the second time I've stayed at the Epic and both experiences have been excellent. A nice clean and modern feel to the hotel. Great views of the Miami River opening up onto the Bay. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. The outdoor bar on the 16th floor is a great place for a cocktail.

The Epic Hotel is modern, accessible, with first rate amenities. We stayed at the Epic Hotel before our Celebrity Cruise. Epic is ultramodern from the grand foyer right up to the room. We had a bright light filled room with a bay view framed by high rise condos and yachts. Ashley greeted us at the desk with a warm smile and enthusiasm to ensure we had a good experience. When she learned it was my birthday, she sent us a wine toast. On Ashley's recommendation we had lunch at Area 31 the roof top restaurant. The Area 31 food was delicious. We had seafood, salad, and wine. The 3 for 1 lunch deal was wonderful. Natalie F, our server gave us great recommendations and attentive, but not intrusive service I predict Natalie and Ashley will one day run the hotel. Klimpton Hotels are distinctive. This was our second Klimpton Hotel stay. We stayed at the Klimpton Hotel in Washington, DC, another gem. We will be back to the Epic Hotel Miami.

Room Tip: Ask for room 3006 to have a great bay view.
