We stayed for 3nights (late May 2014). First time in Downtown Miami area - can't fault EPIC at all; wonderful hotel, comfortable and luxurious rooms and exellent pool deck. We were lucky enough to have a room looking out onto the water/pool and made the most of our balcony.
Not our first 'Kimpton' experience and certainly won't be our last.
Breakfast in the hotel restaurant was very good (reasonably priced) and was novel to sit on the outdoor terrace and enjoy the morning sunshine.
Mary Brickell village is a short walk away with plenty going on at nighttime.
Overall an excellent experience which comes highly recommended.
