Just returned from cruise, had to wait 8 hrs for flight. So decided to get a day pool pass $20 best move ever the hotel is amazing/immaculate presented. The pool area was perfect just the right size with two lovely pools, and enough sun beds and seating area. The use of the sauna and changing rooms was the best I've...

This hotel is average at best. I attended a conference there recently. Property has a good location, however request water view, otherwise you'll mostly be viewing the high rise next door. Comfortable rooms, not ready till 4:00 pm, with some rooms without balcony furniture, at least on side without view. The worst buffet I've experienced in some time at a...

Tim G: Thank you so much for submitting your feedback for us! I am very disappointed to hear you were not completely comfortable throughout your stay. You deserved better than that. As much as availability plays a role in our rooms being available before check-in time at 4:00pm, better communication at check in could have probably avoided a lot of...

Epic has a great location in Miami and has a very cool vibe. I had a room over looking the Port of Miami as well as Biscayne Blvd. The lobby is very cool and the wine tasting at night is a nice touch. The room was a good size although be careful as the noise from the bar on a...

I had high expectations for the Epic. But the staff was not as friendly as I'd hoped for a Kimpton property. The gentlemen at check-in was awesome, and I'm sure it was clear that I was excited to stay there. The housekeepers were also the nicest people I encountered. The guy at check-out though was a completely arrogant when I...

We stayed at the Epic for a few days before we went on a Caribbean cruise. The hotel in a excellent location and has excellent facilities. From the moment we pulled up and checked in, the service was exceptional. Firstly Sonny the bell person was brilliant. Then we received just as helpful and friendly service throughout the hotel. We had...

We stayed there only one night, but the hotel felt like some road-side motel built vertically. We asked for a quiet room, and our room was on the South side of the building near the Western end facing the draw-bridge. Every car that crosses on Brickell Avenue made a VERY noisy ROARing sound as it crossed the bridge. Insist on...

Stayed at the Epic and loved the hotel. The location is amazing, the service was more than great, and the ameneties are wonderful. The pool area has a wonderful view of downtown Miami and South Beach and both restaurants (Zuma & Area 31) are really good.

The hotel is in a central location with city and water views from everywhere. The room wasn't ready upon arrival so we had a wonderful lunch on the 16th floor overlooking Miami. The service was excellent and the food amazing! We had every fresh tuna dish imaginable and one was better than the next. Once our room was ready, we...
