Guests can enjoy two rooftop pools here
This hotel charges a $29 daily amenity fee
With a name like EPIC, this hotel has a lot to live up to. So what's the final verdict on this property? By all visitor accounts, it's very good. Guests love the hotel's trendy, fun atmosphere and give two thumbs way up for customer service. Accommodations here are not as funky as those found in other hotels that are part of the Kimpton brand, and that's because the decor is simply the hotel's surroundings; massive floor-to-ceiling windows and private balconies offer fantastic views of Biscayne Bay, the Atlantic Ocean and the Miami skyline. Guest rooms also feature honor bars stocked with treats and drinks, plus 55-inch Samsung smart TVs that can be controlled with your iPhone. Though you may be tempted to spend all your time in your room, travelers highly recommend visiting the two pools on the 16th-floor pool terrace and the in-house Area 31 restaurant. However, some caution that the $29 daily amenity fee, which covers in-room Wi-Fi access and a complimentary fitness class at the 24-hour gym, feels a bit pricey. If you're an IHG Rewards Club member, you'll have access to additional benefits like a $30 spa credit.

This massive Kimpton hotel is one of the more attractive options downtown and it possesses a coolness cred that could match any spot on Miami Beach.

Inside the self-proclaimed 'cosmopolitan boutique resort,' vaulted ceilings and glass walls create an open feel, and each of the 411 rooms and suites offers sweeping views of either the city or the bay.


Opened in 2009 by the Kimpton hotel group, EPIC is a luxurious Downtown hotel that attracts business professionals and leisure travelers who want to be removed from the South Beach scene.
