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.

Valet for the hotel is $24 and Valet to go to the marina is "VIP" $50 which you must pay upfront before they will take your keys. I decided to get a quick service at the spa which they validate for.

When came back to valet to let them know I got validation, the manager "Angel" said the ticket was closed and I should not have agreed to the $50. So basically because I didn't understand the difference im out $50 which that HAPPILY took advantage of. These are the kind of people you're dealing with. Read less

Let’s be honest, Miami is not always known for good service. Indifference is often the accepted standard. The Kimpton Epic sets a new standard. I was pleasantly surprised with not only a gracious welcome at reception but also free wine hour glasses of wine. Front desk managers Luca Albisetti and Roger Murray were over the top helpful and provided a wealth of advice regarding dining options- a great value in these Covid times. My room was spacious and the view was breathtaking. The location of the hotel is convenient to many dining options and great for people watching. My experience was so great that I booked a room again on my return from the Caribbean 3 days later. Amazing in these times of impersonal service, Robert greeted me by name ( from memory) with a warm “ welcome back “. I will be back again for sure. Read less
