A new Miami hotel has arrived on the scene — upping the ante in the competition for cool.
EPIC Hotel is in downtown Miami, where the Miami River meets Biscayne Bay. It takes full advantage of its waterfront location, with a private marina and rooms that offer dazzling views of the water and the city.
EPIC, with 411 rooms and suites, bills itself as a cool boutique hotel with the amenities of a resort. And the list of amenities is long: Private balconies in all rooms, flatscreen TVs, hydrotherapy air bath tubs, Wi-Fi and a complimentary, 24-hour fitness center to name a few. Plus, the hotel features a full-service spa, and two outdoor pools with a 15,000-square-foot wraparound pool deck and private cabanas — all on the hotel’s 16th floor, with sweeping views.
EPIC has services and amenities for guests of all kinds. Business travelers can take advantage of the hotel’s 24-hour business center, full concierge and business assistant services. Families will appreciate that in-room safety kits (with outlet covers, etc.) and cribs are available during their stay, and that the hotel offers lists of kid-friendly activities and referrals for accredited babysitters. And if you’re a pet lover, bring your furry friend along. EPIC is a pet-friendly hotel and even offers some services and amenities for pets.
The EPIC Hotel’s downtown location makes it convenient to business and leisure destinations. And if you don’t want to make your own transportation arrangements, the hotel offers complimentary car service to Brickell Business District and South Beach.

There’s a 40,000-square-foot spa, restaurants by internationally-recognized chefs including Alfred Portale of New York’s Gotham Bar and Grill, and the pool area includes six pools and ultra-luxe private cabanas (Wi-Fi, flatscreen TV, butler service).
