“I think this could be the BEST HOTEL IN MIAMI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

First of all I would like to say a Big thank you to all the staff, at this fantastic hotel, for making us all feel so welcome.
we stayed here for 4 nights from 3/02/14 x 2 rooms before going on a cruise out of Miami,
and we all felt sorry to leave the hotel to get the ship, as we were having such a good time
the old saying of location, location is spot on with this hotel
and there is nothing negative I could say about any aspect of this hotel .
it will be first port of call next time we sail out of Miami without doubt.
once again
thank you Epic

Thanks for sharing the great experience you had on trip advisor. Considering us as "possibly the best hotel in Miami", doesn't get any better for me.
Please come back soon, our great rooms and staff are here for you any time.

Everything about this hotel was amazing. From the minute we drove up and were greeted to the desk staff etc, it was the best experience. Not once were we not welcomed with a smile, friendly conversation, etc. The room was one of the most beautiful I have ever stayed in. We were on the 24th floor and had an outstanding view of our surroundings. The design and fixtures in the room were most unusal, relaxing and very upscale. I definately look forward to staying there again. I am a travel agent and hope to book my clients at this location.

Last year, after a stay at the Epic for the Miami Boat Show, I sadly wrote a very negative review about the Epic. The Kimpton Hotel Chain, hotels we adore, had just taken it over and had not had time to bring it up to Kimpton standards. Well, what a difference a year makes!! We gave the hotel another shot during the 2014 Boat Show and, boy, does it shine!! In every way.

We knew, right away, that things were different beginning with staff. The people we had praised last year were still there, doing a great job. The conniving concierge and the sneaky bartender were long gone!

Reservations, check-in, excellent advance rates for a downtown Miami hotel, lovely amenities were perfect. The double king room was spacious, clean and, as always, filled with those architectural details that distinguish Kimpton. The view overlooking the bay and surrounding skyscrapers is amazing.

No service was too small. The restaurants, Zuma and Area 31, were delicious adventures in cuisine and people watching, room service was prompt and delicious and concierge service got us a car and driver for the day on short notice.

It was a perfect stay -- I mean really....how often can you say that about a hotel?? Great to see the Epic transformed by Kimpton.

Room Tip: Ask for a water view looking towards the cruise terminal.

We stayed at the EPIC when we moved to Miami last year while we waited on our furniture to arrive. It was clean, modern and had great restaurants. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. We also had a lovely view of the Miami River and a little of the bay. We highly recommend the hotel.

I was truly impressed with the hotel. The ambiance was nice and the room was quite large. The view of the river and neighboring buildings at night weren't as bad as I thought they we would be. I highly recommend Epic even for a night stay.

Beautiful lobby, spacious rooms, delicious in house restaurant (Area 31) was incredible, heard that Zuma is even more so. Had a king view room w/ balcony which was perfect. Love the Kimpton chain, they are our "go-to" hotels when not staying at vacation rentals. Kimptons are consistently consistent and wonderful.

Service, setting, cleanliness, appointments, comfort, customer care, In-Touch membership are all exemplary.

Can't go wrong, highly recommend Kimptons and Epic at every occasion.

Green Features: Eco-friendly and recycle program is reassuring, promising and more reason to stay at this and any Kimpton.

First off i'd like to thank the G.M. Brett Orlando who has been quiet gracious and there for all my concerns. Working in the same industry but filling ships i truly do like when the service is just as good as the accommodations.

The first time i stayed at the Epic in Miami was in September and will be staying tomorrow night for Valentines Day with my girlfriend(which they assisted me with flowers etc). From the second you pull up to the lobby i could tell it was going to be a great time. Coming into the private elevators going up to my room the first thing i loved was the view, right in the heart of Downtown, and the view was amazing(across from the ViceRoy) and the waterway below. What i especially did like was the handwritten note Brett left in my room; I'm big when it comes to the small things.
Room service is great, room is great and look forward to going to Area 31 this time which i didn't have time last time as well as the pool area.
