Kimpton EPIC Hotel

Miami, Florida

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.

The Kimpton Epic is one of my new favorite finds, as they are the complete package. During Covid, there are limited services in most hotels, and this hotel finds a way to make it all work. If you need an additional refrigerator, they bring it. Hot water heater for tea, they bring it. Extra towels, shampoo, or any other amenity, and its there in your room quickly. The rooms are fantastic and stylish with tons of charging outlets, and with spacious balconies that allow you to soak in the great location downtown. (And to allow fresh air into your room, which is a great thing during a pandemic.) The pool area is great, and the spacious layout of the entire hotel makes you feel secure during times when space is a necessity to staying safe. The quality that puts the hotel over the top for me though is the absolutely superlative staff. I need to name them because over the course of multiple stays over the past months, they were the difference of me staying safe and comfortable and I'm certain many guests feel the same. Gabriel, Robert, Melissa, Donovan, Monica and the rest of the staff, thank you for how patient, understanding, helpful and caring you are to all of your hotel guests. Read less
