I'm a big fan of Kimpton properties. This one is a bit different from the typical Kimpton (which is often an older property redone to be an interesting place at something of a "value' rate)-- the EPIC is new, high end, full of "beautiful people" (who maybe have had some work done and maybe shouldn't be showing quite so much skin!). As a result, the experience is different-- this is "luxe" on a large scale with a lot of celebrity "wannabes". The pros here are: fantastic pool areas on the 16th floor, good gym/spa, wonderful views of the city and the water (we paid a bit of a surcharge to get to a really great junior suite on the 27th floor). The cons: the hotel was extremely full during our visit (due to a convention and the Miami marathon) and frankly seemed to be straining, and the place ain't cheap (at least this weekend). The elevators weren't working right, lines at the checkout and the front desk were long etc. All in all, the experience wasn't as "intimate" as the smaller hotel Kimpton experience. I was also of two minds about the restaurant on the property (Zuma-- very popular, very loud and seemed to have a bit of a "cooler than thou" attitude).
