Surrounded by a flock of buttoned-up business hotels, EPIC breaks the downtown mold and offers a leisure oasis sky-high above Miami’s glistening Biscayne Bay. As the only hotel in Miami with direct marina access, EPIC ensures unrivaled style with “a coolness cred that could match any spot on Miami Beach” (Lonely Planet).

Dock yachts up to 900 feet before heading into the dramatic, modern lobby with 26-foot ceilings and luxe glass walls. Guests will undoubtedly feel the buzz of EPIC’s über-popular Zuma upon arrival, ranked #1 on Zagat’s “50 Best Miami Restaurants” list and featured on Thrillist’s “21 Best Sushi Spots in America.”

Score a reservation before arrival or kill time waiting for your table at EPIC’s complimentary nightly happy hour, offering a unique way to mingle with other guests. Top seafood dining also awaits at Area 31 on the 16th floor, along with the hotel’s sprawling leisure deck complete with two infinity pools and a pack of sundrenched cabanas overlooking the bay. For some late-night entertainment, guests can head over to Lilt Lounge, which serves up uniquely crafted cocktails and live music Tuesday-Saturday nights.

“Epic” views continue in guest rooms, with floor-to-ceiling windows and sizeable balconies in every room. Luxe sink-side amenities offer another unexpected treat and help tide guests over before bookings at the 12,000-square-foot on-site Exhale spa.

Enjoyed Most: The pool was wonderful. The breakfast was fabulous. Also we had dinner at the restaurant Zuma which was awesome!

Enjoyed Most: Friendly staff. Modern room was excellent. Ended up with a great view of the bay. Clean well designed hotel.
Other Comments: The "waterview" rooms should state whether partial or full view of the water. 18-20th floor right over the pool can hear everything outside (DJ on some days). For $40/night valet parking needs improvement

Enjoyed Most: The location and views
Other Comments: The service was excellent!
Jaime Jul 25, 2015 Stuart, FL, United States
Enjoyed Most: Beautiful hotel, wonderful continental breakfast with fresh fruit and an optional hot breakfast buffet for only $9 extra with the breakfast voucher. Gorgeous view of the bay and the 16th floor pool area from our room's balcony
Other Comments: Was disappointed about the $40 nightly parking fee but everything else about the hotel made up for it.

Enjoyed Most: Comfortable bed. Friendly staff.
Erica Jul 20, 2015 Boynton Beach, FL, United States
Enjoyed Most: The hotel was amazing, we had a wide balcony. Pools were shaped very cool. Breakfast was included and plenty. The best view.
Other Comments: Somebody said they paid $45 for two mohitos. It was too much. There was not that much action at night at hotel. Parking chaotic but I would go back for sure.
Irina Jul 20, 2015 Boca Rato, FL, United States
Enjoyed Most: I enjoyed the beauty of the hotel. The room was awesome, modern, and spacious. We appreciated the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. In the evening, the live music in the lounge was a treat. The location was walking distance from the bayside which is a plus. Also, we were able to get a mini-fridge and microwave (on request) which was necessary for our family.
Other Comments: I wish hotel valet parking was not so expensive ($39). We stayed the night of 7/3/15 and there were many, many valet employees but I only recall maybe two bellmen to help with luggage to the room. I'm not sure why there were not more bellmen as it was a busy weekend.
