We just came back from this wonderful hotel in Downtown Miami.
The negatives are the construction surround the hotel as well as the resturant/lounge that is being built in the lobby.
IT was truly wonderful to see a brand new clean 5 STAR hotel that deserve its rating. We have stayed in numerous hotels across US and seen many on tripadvisor.com and only to be disappointed. This one truly lilves up to its standard as #1 in the Miami area.
There are too many overpriced hotel in Miami South Beach Area. This is definitely a true alternative. The view to the Biscayne Bay was unbeatable. We also had a great wine evening reception. They GYM was the best I have ever been in. It is better than Intercontinental, Mandarin Oriental, Hyatt, etc, etc. Many treadmills, cross trainers, sitting areas. Above all, CLEANINESS IS THE NAME HERE.
The prices are also much better than south beach area hotels.
The concierge including OSCAR was truly helpful. He and the staff really go out of their way to ask and help whatever you need. EVeryone including the doorman smile and greet and ask if you need assistance. That is a rarity in America these days.
We always been weary about staying in KIMPTON HOTEL as most of their west coast hotels are OLD AND DESPERATELY need updating.
We will stay in EPIC AGAIN WITHOUT SECOND THOUGHTS when we visit Miami again.
FINALLY-----FREE COMPUTER AND FREE INTERNET in the room. THAT IS UNBEATABLE. NO CHARGE. COMPLEMENTARY alone with great morning coffee and tea.
TIPS: eat at South Beach but dont stay at overpriced hotel. It was radiculous how cheap (relatively) the food at South Beach is. They really work hard with breakfast and lunch specials. Loved the streetside style of eating. Also, taxis is a great way to get around. Not too expansive.
TIPS: USe miami tour company and go see Everglades with Gator Farm. You will see nature and the wild as it should. Say hello to SCARFARCE (the alligator ) when you go.
