Just returned from an amazing 3 nights. October is considered off season, so the lobby and bar areas where not crowded, actually practically empty on Thursday night. It livened up a little bit on Friday and Saturday. The lowes by contrast was a hustle and bustle on Saturday morning when we walked in to check things out. But let's face it, you come to the Ritz for service, pampering and peace. And they cannot be beat! Everything was just perfect, as expected. Location was the best in south beach, as you are on Lincoln Road.
"Great hotel.If only I could make coffee in my room"
The Epic is stylish and you pay for it. The staff are excellent, the public spaces are lovely, and the hotel dining room is imaginative and first-rate. The rooms are ample; the pool area and bar drinks are great.
Just two quibbles. No in -room coffee machine! The free coffee offered in the lobby is pretty bad, and the nearest Starbucks is three blocks away, and a pot of very nice room-service coffee is nearly sixteen bucks. .
Also, I could hear occasional noise from the room next door. Not a big problem but in a hotel of this quality it's worth noting.
Stayed for one day, and was clawing not to leave the next day. the service was excellent. The building was clean, historic and up to date with all of the amenities.
The SPA was amazing. Ask for Vanessa, she does a great Deep Tissue Massage.
Sunday brunch was exquisit. So many options, so little stomach. I will be back.
My husband and I stayed here for in August for our 5th wedding anniversary. We live in Miami so the commute was close. The hotel is beautiful inside and out! We drove up to the valet, but they just looked at us and keep on helping others which was rude. I had to get out the car to figure out where we had to park or what we had to do which was inconvenient. After all that was said and done, check-in was easy peasy, and we ended up upgrading to a suite for a small fee. Our room was modern and beautiful! We had the Miami Spice dinner at their restaurant 15th & Vine. Food was amazing! Very small servings for the price but it taste very good! We had a few vouchers for free drinks which we used for breakfast the next day. Breakfast was included in the hotel stay but because we had vouchers, we were able to order anything we wanted. Breakfast was the best! We stayed only for one night but we would definitely stay here again although it is a bit pricey!
The website and pictures do not do this resort any justice. Request a courtyard villa (those rooms were recently redone) and they are fabulous. One of the best lodging experiences in miami bar none---just like your own littel oasis, but close enough to the action---however, you will not want to leave.
