“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

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.

I am a Gold Marriott Rewards member and rarely stay at other properties. My job booked a block of rooms here and required that we stay here due to a conference. So glad they did. This place was super nice. The hotel accomodations were nice and swanky. The hotel staff was unbelievabley caring and concered. The doormen where the best. Always willing to give recommnedations on were to eat, drink, and party. The pool and restaruant are on the 16th Floor and this place has the best happy hour I have ever been to. It is a short walk or $5 cab ride to Mary Brickell Village which has all the bars, restaurants, and shopping you could want. Spent many nights there. This hotel is right on the water downtown and is at the start of the Brickell area. I would stay here again most definitely. This place is impressive. can I come back I already miss it.

Booked a Kimpton In Touch Last Minute Deal at the Epic for the July 4th weekend and was treated to a great stay! Had a Club Level Waterview room #2905 on the first night and moved to a great Cityview Junior Suite #2920 the second night. I actually like the city view room better because of the great view of downtown Miami and the Miami River. The Club Level is fantastic with great food and drink throughout the day. As a Kimpton Inner Circle member, I stay at many Kimpton hotels around the country. None better than the Epic! Special thanks to Front Desk Manager Anna for taking great care of me. I will be returning this weekend to celebrate my birthday. I know it will be an Epic weekend!

Room Tip: High floors with city views are great

Recently stayed at the Epic, just got home today and I already miss it. Beautiful hotel, beautiful location, beautiful people. The food at area 31 was excellent. The pool was very nice, fun crowd. Carlos and Ashley down by the pool are very friendly, we enjoyed talking to them. Our suite was very nice, room 1801, good view of the pool, bay, and city. Can't ask for much more. Carmen at checkout was very pleasant, should of got her number lol. Overall great time !! If you are young this is the place for you!

I have recently stayed at the Epic Hotel in the past two months twice and can honestly say the service was excellent , the pool was beautiful , the pool side service was simply perfect and the view just simply amazing. We were fortunate to rent a cabana both times and it's a total must for anyone thinking of visiting Miami or simply want to take a mini vacation away from work. In three words : Its simply Amazing !!!!!

Just returned from five days at the Epic for a fabulous girlfriend get-away. Perfect combination of sun, pool and city delights. Hotel service was exceptional starting with Mauricio and Eduardo welcoming you at the front door, continuing with Emily and Michael meeting your every need at the front desk. Food and drinks at Area 31 (delicious and great views) were enjoyable especially when served by Leslie. Nothing better than lounging at the pool with Carlos serving and setting up. Top this all off with the BEST massage at the remarkable spa with Jose.

WOW, all these compliments, I don’t even know what to say! I can’t wait to tell everyone how impressed you were with your stay. It sounds like you had the chance to really experience so much of what EPIC has to offer: Area 31 restaurant, wine hour, and a pool with a view of all of downtown Miami. I love how you call it a “perfect combination of sun, pool and city delights.” I couldn’t agree more.

We all look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
