This is a lovely hotel. I stayed at the Hyatt across the street the first night and switched to the Epic for the rest of my stay. No comparison. Newer, nicer, friendlier and overall a great hotel. I stayed on the club level and the food quality far exceeded my expectations. One evening the meal served was fresh Mahi mahi, fresh salmon and fresh snapper, along with salads and an open bar. would definitely stay here again in Miami and I will try one of their other hotels when I have the opportunity.
