After long hours of searching online for hotels in Miami with exceptional views and a great location, we came across Epic Hotel.

Great rooms, beautiful hotel, fantastically pet friendly (the main reason I stay here). Just avoid room service (they never get it right -- haven't since htey opened), eat at one of the other local hotels for breakfast and lunch (again, they never get it right. Dinner is somewhat better than breakfast and lunch but why take the risk? The view...

The hotel is so very Miami. If only it were on the beach (this is why it falls short of 5 stars). Pool and lounge area are gorgeous, well laid-out, and fun. We loved the trendy ambient music that was piped in everywhere. The rooms were reasonably sized, very comfortable, decorated in soothing earth tones, and had balconies. Ours had...

Epic is a beautiful hotel in a great location and the service is second to none!! We had an ocean view room overlooking the pool and biscayne bay. Area 31 is a good restaurant, and the sushi at exuma is incredible!! Epic is centrally located in downtown and close to activities.
