“AMAZING!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2010

This is one place you will not be disappointed. We stayed for one night prior to boarding a weeks cruise, and before we left we booked a weeks stay for when we returned from the Cruise. The staff were fantastic and a special mention to Brent & his colleagues on the front desk, and Rueben who were great fun and provided an excellent service. On our first nights stay it was our wedding anniversary, and after being out by the beautiful pool area, when we got back to the room a bottle of champagne had been left for us wishing us a happy aniversary - such a lovely surprise. For our weeks stay we had a beautiful stylish suite with fantastic views and an amazing bathroom - Kimpton Hotels really have thought of everything here from the toiletries, to the bath robes to the furnishings. We got to know one of the maids, and as she knew we were leaving on her day off, she left us a lovely handwritten note to wish us a safe trip home - its little things like that that make this a fantastic place to stay. The pool staff also deserve a mention as they were very attentive, and again never too busy for a chat. The pool area is fantastic, and whilst we there we had the pleasure of watching the World Cup on one of the many flat screen TV'saround the pool area. I don't think we came across any member of staff who didnt smile, or provide excellent customer service. Thankyou so much Epic hotel for making our stay so memorable and special - we will definately return

We got a great deal 3 nights for the price of 2 saved $500! Got a free room upgrade 2319 is an amazing room and worth requesting get a water view but didn't pay extra for it!

Minor gripe would be $40 a night for valet. But if you can afford $500 a night for a suite then you can't complain.

the only problem it is the location, epic hotel is in the downtown Miami, nothing to do, need a car.

Stayed at Club level .. Good food presentations and drinks throughout the day and evening. . Well worth the extra. It is the staff here who make the difference.. Everyone is obviously very proud of the hotel and so sets the standard for others to follow. The pool is gorgeous with very fluffy towels and yet again great service with a smile . We dined at 31 but we were a bit tired so only had a small helping but the food was good and the staff were all superb. If you want an hotel that is just a little bit different ,immaculately clean with great views and spacious rooms . This is for you. I will definitely go back and recommend to others.

Service: It was beyond outstanding and truly 5 star. Every and any request was honored. The staff made sure that everything was perfect. Ask for Bruno or Bonaldo from the concierge staff.

Room: Very trendy furniture. Beautiful views from the ocean view. The city view was better at night due to the miami skyline. Everything was clean. Large bathrooms wtih his and her sinks.

Location/Amenities The only downside. The hotel is located within the miami business district. So you will need a rental car to get around. Like all hotels in miami parking is expensive: $32 dollars per day. Pool, gym, and spa were all excellent.

Likes: I highly recommend paying for the club level rooms (floors 29-30) which give you access to the club level lounge. The lounge has a seperate concierge staff, has a full open (free) drinks. It also serves 5 meals per day including a continental breakfast, and lunch, wine hour, etc...

Dislikes: The location can be tough if you dont have a rental car.

Simply put, FINE accomodations in Miami (except for the "complimentary" Continental breakfast). Spend the bucks if you are hungry and eat some fine food. This is not a budget hotel, expect and receive the finest.
It can be a bit noisey between doors...etc. they are thin... I'm splitting hairs here because, the the service, pools, bath, and beds make you forget all about that.
Highly Recommended

I was able to stay at the Epic for one night while my husband worked in downtown Miami. All I can say is that I was spoiled for the one day I stayed there. The pools are gorgeous. The hotel itself is gorgeous. The room is too die for. You are walking distance to Bayside Marketplace for some shopping and dining.
This hotel definitely has the WOW factor. The only downfall was the gym, I used it on Saturday morning and they say its a temporary gym but its very small and gets filled up quite fast.
Also there is a complimentary happy hour between 5 and 6, they served red and white wine, definitely take advantage of that.

All in all a wonderful stay.
