We asked our travel agent to put us into this hotel (based on TA reviews) as they had bkd us into a very poorly rated hotel in South Beach and as we were staying 3 nights pre cruise we didn't want to stay in a dive. On arriving at the hotel after travelling for 17 hours we were professionally and efficiently greeted at Reception and informed that we had been comp upgraded to a jnr suite and this was a wonderful surprise. The room was very large, extremely comfortable, had wonderful views from the floor to ceiling windows, and it was very well furnished with a corner couch, large flat screen tv, balcony, full PC with comp internet and we even had our own little goldfish (who we called Albert!). We also received comp vouchers for continental breakfast and what a wonderful start to the day sitting on the terrace overlooking downtown Miami. The only carparking at the hotel is valet and this costs approx $30 per day but we had no problem paying this as space in the area is at a premium and the service by the valets was very good. The hotel offers comp coffee in the morning from 6 to 9 am and also all guests are invited to attend a wine hour from 5 to 6 pm every evening - both are wonderful and unexpected touches that the hotel does not necessarily need to offer to it's guests. We didn't eat in the restaurant but did order room service one evening and although the choice isn't extensive, the quality,quantity and cost of the meal we chose was excellent. The location of the hotel is easily accessible following the very good directions provided on the hotel's website and there are many restaurants and bars in Mary Brickell Village which is a 15 minute walk from the hotel. All in all we very much enjoyed staying at the Epic and would have no hesitation in staying there again if/when we are next visiting Miami.
