I've never stayed in a hotel like the Epic. For one thing, it is both a hotel and a residence. I'm told that's very common in Miami, but I'm not familiar with that business model. Secondly, it's cool and hip, and has a very modern design. You'd never mistake it for a Hyatt or a Marriott -- which isn't to say anything negative about those hotels; just saying that the Epic in Miami is unique.
We only stayed one night, the night before boarding a cruise ship. The room's design is unique and elegant. Check-in, check-out and bell service were very good. View from our balcony was terrific.
We did have to really work to find a place to have a cocktail at 4:00 PM. Upon check-in we were told that there is a Wine Hour beginning at 5:00. There was confusion surrounding that, as well. Being from Las Vegas, we're not used to having to hunt to find liquor!
The hotel was very clean and close to the Port of Miami, so I would recommend it for people needing a hotel the night before your cruise.
