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 stayed there about 4 nights and had a great experience! The room was very clean and housekeeping was consistent and thorough. The food was also great and a wonderful location. The bed and bedding were so comfortable and I had an amazing view from my balcony. Great experience all around! I would definitely stay there again!

Awesome experience. Stayed here five nights, fam with three teenagers and two rooms. Pool scene great, zuma is onsite and one of best restaurants I’ve been to. Robert at front desk was a huge help when dad of the year didn’t have New Years plans until New Year’s Eve and when our flight home got cancelled. He’s a keeper. The only thing I would say… Read more

The only thing I would say they need to do is pool staff should pick up empty cups rolling around everywhere when they were doing nothing. I’d stay here again. No question Read less

My friend and I have never stayed near Brickell and will definitely be back to the Epic. Outstanding service from the drive, bellmen, and front desk. Layla the front desk agent was extremely helpful and very nice. She was able to suggest some upgrades and we gladly accepted because of her awesome customer service.
