My husband and I stayed here for our fourth wedding anniversary. We got a fantastic rate online that included complementary valet parking so we got a great value for a 4.5 star hotel. Upon arriving, they gave us a voucher for complementary breakfast and had complementary champagne in our room celebrating our anniversary. We requested a room on a higher... More

Another great Kimpton experience. This hotel is extremely luxurious and has a very modern feel. Cool lobby and very attentive staff who are ready to help with whatever you need. Rooms are good size with outstanding bathrooms. Only negative is the TV which seemed dated and was not HD. Nice large balcony and good views of the water. Zuma restaurant... More

As a car lover, my enjoyable stay began with the entrance area full of Ferraris, Bentleys, and Rolls Royces and continued with the friendly valets, and prompt easy check-in. I arrived a little early, but my room was readily available. I was on the 27th floor in a king bed room. The room was relatively quiet, had a great view... More

As always I booked this hotel on the basis of the reviews on tripadvisor. I had a fairly good idea of what to expect, and my expectations turned out to be quite accurate. If not 100% accurate its because the hotel turned out to be even better than I thought it would be. We arrived in our rental car in... More

A free upgrade is not the only way to impress me, but I must say that it certainly helps win me over! That was my introduction to the hotel so it certainly began on a high note and didn't stop there. First, the location is impressive. Right on the water yet in the Brickell area (downtown Miami, the financial district).... More

Hotel is awesome. Staff is phenomenal. Room is luxurious. Great Balconies that have great views of the city. Great Pool! The ONLY thing is it's a 20 dollar cab ride to South Beach.

I've stayed at both this property and the JW Marriott across the street for 4-week stays and the Epic gets the edge. The rooms are quite comfortable, not as plush as the JW, but the functional balconies are just wonderful. The pool area is well designed (and serviced).
