Kimpton EPIC Hotel

Brickell, Miami

The hotel

Epic by name and epic by nature, the Kimpton Epic sits along the water’s edge, overlooking the glistening Biscayne Bay. Take a dip into one of the two rooftop pools, and sip on a cocktail in your private poolside cabana. Seeing as you’re set on the waterfront, seafood is a must, and you can dine looking out on the sea itself. In need of some me-time? Head to the spa for a treatment, or try your hand at a yoga class. And when the evenings roll in, head out and experience one of Miami’s cool bars, or retreat to your room for some down-time.

I have stayed at the Kimpton several times and have always loved it, but my most recent experience with the night manager Carlos has blown me away. This was the definition of first in class service, and I will be sure to be back just because of how amazing he made this trip. I booked a trip for my boyfriend for his birthday and after talking to Carlos, he gave me AWESOME recommendations and made sure we were well taken care of during our stay. We stayed in the water view suite and it was BEYOND imagination, so beautiful and even had complimentary champagne and cheesecake for his birthday, I’ve never experienced service like this and have told my friends and family they need to come here. Such amazing care for customers, thank you again Carlos for the awesome vibes and experience! Read less

My girlfriend and I came to the Kimpton hotel for my birthday, and at first we were decently happy with the room. We tried for days to get an upgrade to no avail, but luckily we stumbled upon the night manager Carlos. Carlos assured us that my birthday would be special. After wonderful conversation, he laid out a plan for us to move into a new room, and the next morning we received a call to move into a different room: a luxury suite with a complimentary bottle of champagne and a delicious slice of cheesecake. Carlos’s ability to make us feel taken care of was absolutely remarkable! This should be a textbook example in how to take care of a customer because now I will DEFINITELY be coming back to stay here, and I made sure to let all my friends know how awesome Kimpton and Carlos were. I couldn’t have wished for a better birthday! Thank you so much, Carlos!! This has raised my standards for hotels moving forward!! 🙏🏿 Read less

Had an amazing overnight staycation in one of the epic’s expansive suites with two balconies, full living room and huge modern bathroom. The hotel is clean and well-maintained, and the staff is friendly and attentive. Great location for walk to Brickell hot spots and short Uber ride anywhere else. Highly recommend!
