“Too cool for school”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

Like many things in Miami, this hotel seems aimed at young people with lots of money. I guess young people in Miami have lots of money. In my town, not so much. Anyway, this is a really nice hotel, but as a khaki and polo shirt middle aged guy, I definitely felt like I did not belong here. Too old, too khaki. It's been a long time since I stayed in a hotel where the whole vibe made me feel unwelcome, but this one did.

Lobby is spectacular, room was very nice, loved having a balcony, and my view was sort of toward the water. So it was definitely an upscale experience. Just a little more upscale than I'm used to. If the hotel dining is not to your taste, there are several nice restaurants within walking distance.

Room Tip: Not sure there's a bad room in this place.

Its pleasure to be here in 2013, The beautiful sea of miami is reason to come here. And This place is good enough to serve the most good quality of food and dine on your stay. I am grateful to spend my vacations at Kimpton.

Room Tip: Book it when you find good price. Normal rate is 400 USD per night.

Stayed for one night prior a cruise with our 2 kids. One bedroom suite club level was perfect for the 4 of us. Room design is great and it's well maintained. Highlight of this place is service. Staff members go out of their way. If I only had one complaint, it would perhaps be temperature! Was tough to get the room to be cool as it appears the air conditioning stops when you leave. And the pool... We were there in March and it was a bit on the cool side. Not sure if it heated or not. But these are small things. We thoroughly loved our stay. And will return!

If sleeping is a priority you might want to rethink this hotel as its next to a major freeway and lots of road noise all night long. I would expect them to mention such a big issue. Front desk offered to move me to another side of the hotel but only If I paid for a second room

Unfortunately we and my family choose to travel to miami in the Ultra Party weekend. Wrong decision. The prices are absurdly expensive, @ $550 per night when usually would be 200. Very nice hotel in downtown Miami, good restaurants close. Be back but paying the right price

Great rooms and great restaurants, located downtown Miami. It's the perfect place if you want to be around Brickell, more new restaurants are opening in the area just 10 min walk. The valet parking is very slow so be ready to wait. Zuma restaurant is amazing and you can dock any size boat next to the hotel, negotiate with the dock master before you arrive if not you will get killed with the price.

Room Tip: Most rooms are suites. Its a very modern and new hotel.

This is my second stay at the Epic this month and I haven't been disappointed. A great option in downtown Miami, it offers all amenities one would expect from a top notch hotel. Staff is great, rooms spacious and modern. Views from the top floors are awesome. Room service fast and delicious. I definitely recommend this hotel!
