“Trendy, Luxury and a Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

The Epic Hotel is a great value when you consider the spacious, modern designed rooms with large balcony overlooking downtown Miami, on the river. As with all Kimpton properties, the staff is trained in the art of providing a fantastic guest experience. Friendly, genuinely interested in you and making your stay the best it can possibly be.

I was able to get a 9 am check-in without having to beg or pay extra. Monica, the front desk agent, mistakenly gave me a room that had a table instead of a bed - scheduled to be used by lawyers working a trial. She was overly apologetic to the point of me being embarrassed. She gave me a $50 room credit and then sent a bottle of great Pinot Noir and appetizers to my room that evening. Totally unnecessary but very appreciated.

The property is immaculate with a world class spa and workout facility and a great pool on the 16 floor overlooking city, river and nearby buildings. Pool staff could not have been nicer, thanks Paola for keeping my hydrated!

Complimentary wine tasting in the lobby from 5-6pm adds to the overall value of staying at the Epic. If you are a lover of Japanese food, make Epic your next Miami destination. Zuma restaurant located on the ground floor overlooking the river serves the freshest and most creative sushi in Miami. A late night, trendy crown makes Zuma a great place to people watch while enjoying the fantastic food. If you don't prefer Japanese fare, you have a wide variety of choices within a short walk.

You can't go wrong by staying at Epic Hotel and if something were to go wrong, you are assured that the staff will make it right. I was there on business but would return for vacation.

Room Tip: City view or water view? Your preference but well worth the minimal extra charge for the water view...

Suitable for the young crowd. We were at an upgraded room with a beautiful view and a very open room design. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The hotel staff were helpful and friendly. We received coupons for a buffet breakfast served in a lovely room and terrace with a gorgeous city view. Fun place to be.

Room Tip: Both sides of hotel have beautiful room viewes

I spent one night in this hotel, I didn't thought it would be nice like this, clean rooms, friendly staff and located close to every important places.

The rooms was really clean, I had the one bedroom (river view), the breakfast was good, the in-room wifi is free whenever you sign up for Kimpton reward program.

The only problem was it is about16 minutes away from south beach by car.

I would really recommend this hotel to whoever like to visit Miami.

Coming back from the Key's we stayed at the Epic Hotel. What a wonderful stay. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The Bay view is breathtaking. Kevin at the Front Desk was very professional and offered us a bunch of information on the hotel and the area.
We had breakfast in Area 31. Natilie was our server. She made breakfast so enjoyable. Great service and with a smile.
Lovely Kimpton property. We will return.

This was just a wonderful review. We are so glad that your trip back from the Keys was fantastic. Between Nathalie and Kevin, you had some true all stars taking care of you. It sounds like you were able to enjoy our large rooms and the downtown Miami area. This is exactly what we love to hear.

Can’t wait to welcome you back again soon.

We had a great time here, the stay was too short but the amenities are great! Ask to borrow and bike and pedal around town we had a great workout and saw a lot! The housekeeping group was amazing as well! Wish we'd had longer to stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the water

We loved this review! Thanks for all of these compliments, we couldn’t be more flattered. The bikes really are an awesome perk. You get to take in all of Miami at your own pace and really enjoy the city.

I am also happy to hear how great housekeeping was. They take such pride in their work that it’s always wonderful to hear the guest feedback.

We look forward to spending more time together.

Thanks for such a lovely review. Our location really does have its perks. If you want to try something besides our great restaurants on property, there are so many in walking distance.

It sounds like you were able to enjoy the area and benefit from our rooms as well. We take great pride in their cleanliness, so we are glad you appreciated it too.

What can I say, except Kimpton does it right! I was in Miami for business and stayed at the Epic for my first time. I was given the corner room which I ask for in my profile and check in was a breeze. The room was clean with a balcony and an ashtray so we actually have a place to put our nasty butts. The bed of course was divine. I had set up a wake up call and slept right through it, but guess what, they came and knocked on my door! Thank you. I had a fruit plate and coffee delivered too and it was perfect and right on time. I slept too well and was treated like royalty. Way to go Kimpton because I am still a Kimpton girl!

Room Tip: I like the corner rooms I always get a good view.

We are ecstatic to head that you are still a Kimpton Girl! Your stay sounds fantastic and we are so glad that we could treat you like royalty. With beds this comfortable, it’s easy to oversleep. Next time you will just have to stay a little longer to enjoy them even more. It means a lot to hear such great feedback that travels the company so often. We look forward to another incredible stay next time.
