Gave the Epic another try and I am so glad I did. The location is perfect for exploring the Miami area. Rooms are peaceful and comfortable. Staff were so friendly and attentive. There are two pools with plenty of lounging space. Nice workout room open 24/7. Yoga and other fitness classes are offered daily. Free internet for kimpton members. The location is ideal if you are interested in more than Miami Beach. Super convenient for the design district, Brickell, Coconut Grove, Key Biscayne. I suggest getting a room with a water view. This will be my new go to spot whrn visiting Miami.
