“Excellent hotel - Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

This is a fabulous hotel... excellent in comfort and location. Absolutely great food at both restaurants. Staff extremely polite. High end.. Worth every $$$. The Japanese restaurant on the ground floor offers magnificent Japanese cuisine. It melts in your mouth. The view of the marina and the boats with a fantastic sunset added even more beauty to our environment while dining! I recommend and can't wait to go back next year!

Room Tip: You want a high floor room with the view on the water. So beautiful!

I was there at the end of July due to an online promotional rate (approx. $230/night incl. breakfast). The small comfortable room had a great view on the Brickell strip. Breakfast was ok. Pool area was small and it's usually very crowded.... Had to wait long time to get the car. Expensive parking valet ($37/night + tax) was very busy with the underlying Japanese very popular restaurant Zuma.....decent gym with a modern equipment.... Beauty center also fine. I wouldn't pay more than $250/300 to overnight in this hotel.

Thanks for taking the time to provide us with some details about your stay. The view of Brickell really showcases how lucky we are to be in downtown Miami. Being able to take in the Miami skyline at night is one of the best parts of the view.

Our pool area can become popular since the breeze on the 16th floor makes everyone want to stay and relax all day. Hopefully between both of our pools, you were able to enjoy your time and benefit from the Miami sun.

We hope to welcome you back again soon for a more impressive visit.

The hotel looks very nice with the great pool area, the rooms are modern with nice touches, such as window to bathtub and nice balkony. There were a few shortfalls though. The safe and one sink were out of order, curtains need washing, housekeeping did not make up the room at all one day. The breakfeast is supposed to be free and they give you coupons, however, they charge you 10 $ per person per day for "upgrade", whatever that is (they should have explained at check in). All in all, our stay was pleasant, but i expected more based on the ratings and the price.

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed how modern our rooms are! The windows to the bathroom really allow you to take in the view from anywhere in your room. I would also agree that we have a great pool area. Being up on the 16th floor really helps stave off the heat while you sip on mojitos.

I am sorry to hear about your housekeeping experience. I will definitely be speaking with the team to address the problem and prevent this from reoccurring.

I would appreciate another chance to change your mind from “mixed feelings” to positive ones. Please feel free to reach out to me, Zachary, for your next stay. I will make sure that the experience is memorable.

We recently stayed at the EPIC Hotel in Downtown Miami. The hotel was beautiful, the staff very accommodating and the views were spectacular.
The room itself was very spacious and clean and well appointed. The location of the hotel is a short drive from South Beach.
We will stay here again.

This was my first stay at the Epic Hotel in Miami, and my boyfriend and I were excited to be in residence for a long weekend. The contemporary décor in the hotel is tastefully done and the location is just a short ride away from South Beach and other downtown shops and eateries. Our room was spacious, well appointed, and always cleaned thoroughly. And the staff at check-in, at the property's fabulous spa, and in their delectable sushi restaurant were always courteous, professional and helpful. Should we visit Miami again, we will definitely return to the Epic Hotel.

Had a great stay at this hotel for our anniversary. The room itself was clean and the view we had from the 25th floor was incredible. However the valet service in the evening is IMPOSSIBLE if you want to get in or out. This was a definite turn off for this hotel property, I expected a lot more.
