“The best concierge ever!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

As advertised, the hotel has nice views, a wonderful in-house restaurant, cool lounge spaces and bar. Still the best thing about the place was the service, and most especially the concierge Glen. From the day we got there he was so helpful with giving us information about where to eat and shop and how to get around town. We were expecting a package which was to arrive the morning we were to check out. Glen was on the phone with them all morning, tracking it down like his life depended on it. The package arrived after we left for the airport, and he hopped in a cab and brought it to the terminal for us! The best service and customer care ever. Thank you Glen.

Excellent service, excellent rooms, and great views. The staff goes over and above to make sure every need is met. We enjoyed the food and the ease of access to South Beach. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Miami.

We stayed at the Epic after returning from a cruise. I can not say enough good things about this hotel. We have stayed at other Kimpton properties, but this one was the best so far! The lovely lady at check-in said they would be the best, but I wasn't totally sure. She was 100% correct though. The room was huge and upon check in we were upgraded from a city view to a water view. It was the perfect ending to our vacation. The Kimpton-Intouch benefits are also fun (raid the minibar) and I love the wine hour in the evenings. We also enjoyed a lovely dinner outside at their restaurant, Area 31, which was also outstanding. I can not wait to return to Miami so I can stay at this hotel again!

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are thrilled our staff, especially Jeniffer, made your honeymoon at EPIC unforgetable. It is great to hear that you were upgraded to a luxury suite with stunning views, and received a complimentary bottle of champagne, to celebrate in style. Thank you for dining at ZUMA restaurant.
We are looking forward to your next visit, definitley next year for your first wedding anniversary.

We love this hotel. My husband and I love to drive to Miami while visiting family in West Palm Beach and stay at this hotel, just for a night. The people at the front desk are just so helpful and wonderful--they truly want to make your stay perfect. We were upgraded to a better view instantly---why shouldn't a hotel upgrade you if they have the availability? More hotels should do this!

As for the room, it was perfect, spacious and clean.

Unfortunately it was very windy so we didn't exactly enjoy laying out by the pool but the employees at the pool was very helpful as well.

I plan to stay at the Epic everytime I'm in Miami--no reason to go elsewhere.

Thank you for your amazing review. We are sorry to hear that the windy conditions kept you from tanning at our pool area. Even sometimes the weather in the ´Sunshine State is not so picture perfect. However, we are thrilled our staff made it up, went out off their way and took good care of you. We are happy you enjoyed your upgraded and spacious room. We love to have you back as our guest.

The staff here is impeccable. I came by myself for a single night for the Masquerade Motel music festival in March (during Ultra). My initial hotel overbooked and I was left without a room during a time when every hotel is booked! I frantically called every hotel in Miami and was very fortunate to have called Epic and was told that I received their last available room as someone just cancelled a few minutes earlier.

I am familiar with Kimpton hotels but from what I came across....WOW! Gorgeous property in downtown Miami. Beautiful rooms that I couldn't have asked more from. Looking forward to the next time I can visit this area and this hotel!
