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.

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!

Really nice hotel in Brickell area of Miami. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We hung out at the pool most of the day when we checked in. Nicely laid out pool chairs and couches. We camped out at the oversized comfy outdoor chair that my boyfriend and I could both fit on. The wait staff for the pool restaurant were on top of it and we never waited long for service. The rooms are very nice and clean and modern. Our room had a decent view of the bay. Overall a great experience and we’d definitely stay here again. Read less

The true meaning behind “all that glitters isn’t gold” starts with the EPIC HOTEL. This hotel gets a one star because negative doesn’t exist on Trip Advisor. If you value peace and privacy regardless of the price, please go stay at The Ritz Carlton or The Four Seasons. My boyfriend stayed at this hotel 3 nights and I stayed one of those nights… Read more
The true meaning behind “all that glitters isn’t gold” starts with the EPIC HOTEL. This hotel gets a one star because negative doesn’t exist on Trip Advisor. If you value peace and privacy regardless of the price, please go stay at The Ritz Carlton or The Four Seasons. My boyfriend stayed at this hotel 3 nights and I stayed one of those nights with him. One of the nights that I happened to be absent, ALEJANDRO who works the Front Desk at Epic Hotel gave a random stalker, a totally unauthorized person the key to my boyfriend’s room around 4:30am-5am. This person valeted their car by sweet talking their way through the entire time, went in, got a key, WENT UPSTAIRS to his room and decided to just hang out in the room while he was asleep!!!!! A complete psycho was let up to the 18th floor that night due to the negligence of the staff at Epic Hotel. This person could’ve caused major harm. To top it all off, the hotel was very unapologetic even after the entire security staff and cops were contacted up to the room. At check out, they still left some unauthorized charges on the bill AFTER the fact. This hotel is a complete joke and privacy was completely out of the picture on that particular night. Ladies & gentlemen, do us ALL a favor and stay somewhere that actually trains their employees through safety protocols. Read less
