In the heart of downtown, Kimpton's pet-friendly, freebie-heavy Epic Hotel has 411 guest rooms, each with a spacious balcony (many of them overlook Biscayne Bay) and fabulous modern amenities—Frette linens, iPod docks, spa-inspired luxury bath products—that match the modern grandeur of the trendy common areas, which include a super sexy rooftop pool. The hotel caters to business travelers and groups, but its association with the young and fun Kimpton brand ensures
a steady intake of pleasure-seekers. The 16th-floor pool area comes to life seven days a week, especially during the complimentary wine hour at 5 pm. Area 31 is an elegant, delicious seafood restaurant also on the 16th floor, flying high with an advanced concept of sustainable cuisine. A second restaurant, Zuma, is Miami's hottest London invasion—just brace yourself for some of the city's longest wait times. The hotel also has a full service marina and the fabulous Exhale Spa.
