EPIC, a Kimpton Hotel, is further proof of the tourist scene blowing up Downtown. Located on the banks of the Miami River, in the midst of the city’s banking district, the hotel is a popular choice for financial wheelers and dealers. Guest rooms—all of which have balconies, some with city views, others waterfront—are big, and keep things uncomplicated with neutral tones and natural wood furnishings. Unsurprisingly, the hotel’s Area 31 restaurant has become the go-to destination for power lunches. And even the most moneyed of travelers appreciate a good freebie: complimentary morning coffee and tea and an evening wine hour are included.
