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.

It was an amazing time!! I had so much fun learning and dancing with her. She did a great job teaching me salsa. She taught me step by step how to dance to Celia Cruz. She offered shots of sangria in between each lesson. It was a great experience! So happy she asked me to do the activity!

My family took a five day trip to Miami and initially booked at another hotel and due to covid all amenities were not available so we left that hotel the following morning and booked with Kimpton Epic Hotel for literally a couple dollars difference and all amenities available including two restaurants, bars and pools were open. All rooms have balconies with great views. The hotel was beyond more than we can imagine, extremely clean in every area we encountered. Every Staff member was courteous and pleasant and made sure our needs were met. They did not do daily cleaning services due to covid but when we asked for extra towels and linen they were brought to us promptly. When we thought we had an air conditioning issue they were at our door within minutes to assure us it was in working condition. The hotel was in walking distance to convenient stores and restaurants as well as the Bayside area. We walked mostly every where we went. Took a Lyft only to go to South Beach. We ate a several restaurants but my son and I thought the best meal we had out of all was the breakfast at Area 31 restaurant in the hotel. Monica at the front desk as well as other staff we encountered were superb and I look forward to staying the next time we travel to Miami. Read less

This young lady named Monica did an excellent job of ensuring that every need that I had was met during this visit. There was not no request that she did not go above and beyond to attempt to help me. From finding information out for me to ship a package home.

This young lady named Monica did an excellent job of ensuring that every need that I had was met during this visit. There was not no request that she did not go above and beyond to attempt to help me. From finding information out for me to ship a package home. I used to stay there all the time when Kimpton owned the location And not and IHG. I was worried about the level of service because I haven’t been back in a few years. The service-level is still the same a PLUS 10. I really enjoyed myself I will try to visit again in December. It was Covid safe, it was extremely clean and everybody did a great job. Thank you Monica and staff see you soon. Read less
