“I had the most wonderful time of my life, ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

From the first minute I entered this beautiful, incredible, wonderful hotel until the very last second I "had" to check out, I felt like "Cinderella". I was treated like royalty starting with the email I received from the Concierge, Sonia Hoffmann, who personally asked that Monica Maksylewicz, Room Controller, attend to my every need and desire as I had been an accident several moths ago and I required a "special needs" room and special services. Monica's impeccable attention to making sure my room was perfect for my needs as well as getting me this most remarkable room on the 28th floor with the most magnificent view of the Miami River just look my breath away! Monica's warm and personal attention to every detail and her special in-room heart-felt touches were amazing and truly appreciated. Having said that, all the rest of the staff was so professional, kind, friendly and efficient from my room service orders that quickly arrived with the most delicious food, to the wait staff at the beautiful Area31 restaurant that each night masterfully waited on me and served me the most delicious and unbelievably presented food prepared by their masterful Chief. I must mention at this point that the Restaurant Managers, Damien and Bobby did every thing in every way to make my dining experience most memorable and extraordinary! In addition, I had the most relaxing, in-room professional and therapeutic acupuncture session with Luciana G. and a most wonderful in-room professional, therapeutic fabulous massage with Nanci B. Honestly, they both are the very best at their profession and I greatly appreciated their special attention to my needs as well. If I could give this hotel and its incredible staff ten (10) stars I would as it and they truly deserve it. The Epic hotel and its staff is so superior in every way. I sincerely mean this and wish to thank each and every one from the bottom my heart!

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the Miami River are magnificent!

The hotel is dirty. Especially the bathroom. We were checked into several rooms before we finally settled for the 3rd room. Yet the bathroom feels dirty. Bedsheet wasn't changed today. Towels are not clean. Regretting I paid for 3nights. There's nothing epic about this hotel. It's not worth it. Pricy hotel for terrible service. The air conditioning also didn't. work well
It was fixed after the second call
I'm currently not enjoying my stay.

The customer service was off the charts! They are so friendly and kind! Service, view, food, pool, location, spa ....everything was amazing!!!! I was blown away by the customer service at this hotel. Every staff member went above and beyond to ensure our stay was memorable. From the door to front desk, to housecleaning and pool attendants. They spare no detail and if you need anything you can ask and they will help. They gave us a free bottle of wine and took there time explaining everything they had to offer.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the Miami river side

Truly one of the best places I have ever stayed with a magnificent view of Miami! I had a water view on the 24th floor and really enjoyed the view of the city from my room and from the balcony. The staff made me feel welcome and made my experience at the Epic one of a kind. I was also able to dine at Area 31 while staying at the Epic and the service there exceeded my expectations! Highly recommend for anyone to stay at the Epic! I will definitely be back soon!

Our room was on the 28th floor with a great view of downtown Miami and the boats passing by. The breakfast is great and has a lot of variation. Pay 9 dollar extra so you can try the hot breakfast as well. They also change little things every day (different kinds of fruit etc..). The pool area is peaceful and quiet. They aim to give the guests the best service possible.. you have to go and experience it for yourself..

I was blown away by the customer service at this hotel. Every staff member went above and beyond to ensure our stay was memorable. From the door to front desk, to housecleaning and pool attendants. They spare no detail and if you need anything you can ask and they will help. Special touches like daily wine hour for guests, not charging for water, excellent room service and smiles from everyone make this my new favourite in Miami. Special mentions to Alex and Ashley at the pool- they made our day fun and relaxing and we felt welcome from the second we sat down at this very beautiful pool among all the beautiful people.

Well jeez, I’m blown away by this outstanding review! Thanks so much for taking the time to praise our entire staff! We really try to focus on the details so that you can enjoy yourself on property, and it sounds like you did. Wine hour is always a favorite; it’s just the perfect way to watch the Miami sunset.

I will definitely be passing your compliments onto Ashley and Alex at the pool. They certainly know how to take care of our guests.

We are all excited to have you back with us soon!

I am in the customer service industry and my job is to drive Engagement among my team in order to enhance Customer Service. I have to tell you that the Epic was EPIC! It takes a lot for me to say that but I have to give credit where it is due. My husband and 18 month old son we're on vacation and had a not so great experience at a Key West hotel. Well, an angel must have told the team at the Epic hotel to make up for it cause they surely did!!! From the extremely courteous Valet (I wish I knew his name-blue eyes that recommended Rosa Mexicano for dinner) to the great check in experience, to EDUARDO the bell hop to VANESSA from Room service who SPOILED MY SON WITH FRESH MADE COOKIES AND A TOY to the great young lady at Area 51 (originally from New York)..... IT WAS PHENOMENAL. I had 2 of the best nights, showers and experiences I have ever had. The attention to detail and the team's ability to anticipate our needs to the cleanliness and gorgeous room..... I am a Epic fan forever.
THANK YOU EDUARDO, VANESSA and all for making our vacation a success. I have told everyone I know to come to your hotel.

Room Tip: Get any room, they were awesome.

I am truly speechless. Your warm compliments have made my day. I am so glad that you had a chance to make a personal connection with so many people on property. Vanessa and Eduardo are true assets to ensuring that personalized experience. I will let them know your fantastic feedback!

It means a lot to have such positive compliments from a customer service expert. We strive to deliver this experience to every guest during every stay. To be honest, we received some angel mail about your experience in Key West and knew that you deserved a phenomenal couple of days with us.

I look forward to welcoming you back!
