This is one of the best hotels we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The EPIC in downtown Miami offers incredible service in a luxurious setting. It’s situated amongst the funky high rises of downtown, on the waterfront (and hence with beautiful with sea views), a close walk from Bayside Market Place and only 10 minutes away in a taxi from South Beach so we really did feel like we were getting the best of all holiday worlds.
The hotel itself is very modern - it’s super clean - and has great offerings including Area 31 restaurant and bar where we went on our first night (modern food, beautifully presented and beautifully tasting), wine hour every evening in the lobby (red or white wine served with an aperitif – you can’t beat it!), the pool (comfortable loungers, plenty of towels, water served to you throughout the day and of course if you fancied it (as we did!) cocktails and bar snacks too from the poolside menu)), a well-equipped gym and opportunity to join in some brilliant gym classes (with a discount of 10 dollars off your first class – a discount is also offered to a spa treatment we think but we didn’t take this up), the trendy Zuma restaurant (where we went for the Sunday brunch – unlimited champagne and amazing food for a fixed price per person) and a friendly concierge who gave some great advice about restaurants and things to do in the local area (we went to a superb Italian called Toscana Divino just a few minutes walk away in Mary Brickell Village) as well as in the rest of the city - we also went on the boat trip to see all the million-dollar homes on private islands at a discounted rate by way of a token provided by the concierge and Stone Joe Crab which was really good fun.
Above all of these wonderful things offered by the EPIC what made it stand out above all else to us was the fantastic service – the balance struck between friendliness, professionalism and efficiency was the best we have ever experienced. We can’t quite imagine how anyone would ever stay at this hotel and not think it to be amazing!!!
