Dear Lourdes,
The purpose of this letter is to commend you for the wonderful service we received during my daughter's wedding. I was very impressed by the overall performance of all events together: food, decoration, staff, service, and the honesty of your Security Staff. The day of the wedding my niece inadvertently forgot a ring in the ladies room that had a deep sentimental value, as it used to belong to my deceased mother.
Around 5:30 am we went looking for the ring among other things at the Ladies restroom to no avail. My sisters and I spoke to your security agent, Mr. Travis as soon as I provided him with the description of the ring he informed us that one of your staff, Sandra, had found the ring and submitted the same to the Lost and Found Department. He went to get it and after requesting a full description of the ring, he gave it to me and asked me to sign a form as proof that the ring was returned to the rightful owner. It meant a lot to me.
I want to take this opportunity to Thank You and your staff for the wonderful customer service, professionalism, honesty and integrity of your personnel, also want to let you know that Nelson, assigned to my table, gave us and the rest of our guest a delightful service all night long.
Rest assure that any future events that my family or friends need to have in a prestigious hotel, the Epic Hotel will be the first on our list.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 954-818-5847

Sincerely,
Martha Hernandez

Our wedding at the Epic turned out to be much more than I ever imagined. The staff (from the planner Lourdes and all of the front desk and day of staff, etc) were all so great and helpful throughout the whole process and day of. The food was delicious and the venue is so beautiful. We also all stayed at the hotel and had such a pleasant experience. Everyone at the Epic was a pleasure to work with and we were all so happy with everything.

I can't even begin to express the gratitude I have for every single person that made our big day absolutely amazing (Lourdes Ramos- Epic Hotel wedding planner; Vivian Colls Flowers; Alain Martinez Photographer; Alex & Ulyses-Videographers from In the Ring Productions/Hitched Wedding Films, Adrian-DJ from EMG Entertainment). We were absolutely thrilled with our venue choice. Everything went off without a hitch, and Lourder Ramos was always around to make sure everything ran smoothly. After all the planning and changes we made along the way, everyone was extremely flexible and accommodating, and we had quite literally the perfect wedding. People always tell you they had a great time, but it is not that often that you have multiple guests tell you that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Lourdes Ramos was fantastic and delivered on every single thing that she said, while being very flexible to all of our last minute requests. This was the best day of our lives, and if I could give them higher than 5 stars I would. I would recommend them, and will to anyone who is looking for a wedding venue, without hesitation. Thank you all so much for being so amazing. You remember your wedding day for your entire life, and we will always look back on our day as pure perfection!

I have to preface my statement with letting you know that I am extremely detailed oriented and have a discriminating palate and love for great service. Choosing Epic to host my recent nuptials was by far one of the greatest decisions we made. Compared to the Four-Seasons, Fontaine Bleu, and Intercontinental, the Epic gave us the biggest bang for our buck. The catering manager and waitstaff were extremely attentive all the way from the tasting through the end of the event. I was further more impressed with their willingness to accommodate my every request and their intuitive service approach, that other venues are typically know for. I highly recommend that all brides and grooms, brides and brides, and in our case, grooms and grooms consider Epic. Know that this recommendation is not being written with a light heart, or with any subjectivity. I know a good deal when I see one and EPIC will deliver on every level.

She was very patient and accommodating to all of our needs! The Epic Hotel is a beautiful venue, but Lourdes is what takes the experience over the top! Thank you, Lourdes, for everything.

The reception at the Epic was amazing. Everything from the attention to the view were fantastic.
They took care of every little detail and accomodated each and every one of our wishes.
First of all the lobby to the hotel is so beautiful that you enjoy the place since you walk in. Not to mention the pool area for taking pictures, so beautiful with the city view as the background.
The cocktail and the reception ballroom looked beautiful. And the food, wow!. The wedding consisted of 140 guest and all I have received is praise about the venue.
I highly recommend this venue if you want everything perfect for your special occassion.

Choosing the Epic was one of the easiest choices in my wedding. From the minute I saw their advertisement in a magazine I knew I wanted to have my wedding there. The ballroom is absolutely stunning from the ceiling to the floor. The mother of pearl wall was gorgeous and made quite a statement as did the glass blown lights to the floor to ceiling windows showing the bank of america tower! The food was delicious, even better than the tasting. The service was amazing! They had a private server for the bride and groom who was there every second getting us drinks and food. Lourdes was very responsive in her emails and very professional as was the entire hotel. If something happened that shouldn't have, they fixed it right away. Great venue for a great price!!

There is so much to comment on the Epic hotel, where do I even start? First and foremost, I would like to thank all of the staff at the Epic. Ivette Perez, the social events manager, is a true professional. Unfortunately, I was unable to have my wedding reception at the Epic because the health department was investigating the hotel’s water filters, two weeks prior to my event. Due to this issue, Ivette had my event relocated to the Mandarin Oriental at no additional cost. Given that the Mandarin Oriental is a five star hotel, I was confident my wedding reception would be executed as planned. This was a hard transition for me, because everything had been originally planned at the Epic hotel. The food at the Epic was amazing. I tried it at my tasting. The staff was great as well. In conclusion, the Epic had no fault in my wedding reception relocation. They truly made the relocation as smooth as possible. I highly recommend the Epic Hotel for their professionalism.

Thank you to The Epic Hotel team, including Lourdes (the Catering Manager) that was an absolute dream to work with. The many changes, phone calls and anxiety i had during the wedding process all subsided as she took care of my every need from the day we booked the venue to the wedding day. Her friendly and upbeat personality made wedding planning at The Epic a blast.

The wedding day was unlike anything I have ever experienced, from the valet to the concierge, everyone took such good care of me (the bride) and our family and friends. Anyone with special needs were accommodated and the ceremony, which we held on the lawn, as well as our poolside cocktail hour, and reception was a perfect 10. Our guests have been calling us since the wedding and all the keep saying was that the service was top notch and the venue was incredible. We couldn't be any happier with our choice, and of all the venues in Miami that we looked at, this was the absolute best value. Thank you Epic team for the most "EPIC" event!!!

Best wishes always,

My experience with this vendor was great. Any questions or concerns I had were taken care of so I didn't have to worry about anything on my big day. I was very happy with the service and how I was treated. My big day was awesome and memorable. My husband's favorite part was that we had our own butler during the reception and his drink was always available to him where ever he was throughout the night! :) I also like that my guests enjoyed the food and still talk about it till today!

Where to even begin... First of all, Lourdes Ramos is an absolute pleasure to work with. She not only understood my needs, but my mom's as well, and learned very quickly how to work with both of us. She is extremely professional and timely. She held my hand through the beginning of the planning process since I did not have a planner at the time.

Fast forward to the big day, and EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT. The service was magnificant, and the food was amazing. Everyone has complimented me for the amazing food (including the hors d'oeuvres) that we served. The view from the Metropolis ballroom that night was spectacular with the Miami Tower all lit up in the background. The room itself is definitely of the prettiest ballrooms I saw in my search process, with the gorgous Mother of Pearl wall, Downtown View, and neutral carpet and scheme. The cocktail party by the pool was perfection.

I do not recommend booking a wedding here around Ultra (which we did, before they extended to a second weekend). However, truthfully, the Ultra-goers had no negative impact on us (only a little the night before when I wanted to sleep).

Lastly, the only thing that I had always been worried about was the crowded lobby/valet. But that day, everything was smooth and easy, and athe feedback I've gotten was that the valet was on its best behavior.

The Epic did an AMAZING job at my wedding!!! It was truly a pleasure working with everyone on their team. Everything was flawless!!! The catering was GREAT. All my guests LOVED all the food and beverage (bartenders and drinks... to be specific ;) lol), the service was phenomenal and everything was done so neatly, professionally, and in a timely manner. I really cannot express in words how PERFECT it was. They put in a lot of hard work to put everything together and it was a job well done! Couldn’t have done it without them! Hope to work with them again in the future.

Where can I start?? What brought me to the Epic first of all, was the reasonably priced packages. It included everything from the chiavari chairs and silk pintuck linens (in wide variety color of choice), a custom fondant cake with 3 well known famous cake vendors, automatic premium liqouor, and beef tenderloin at the cheapest package!!!

From the moment I walked into the hotel itself, I automatically knew that, this was the place I wanted to host my wedding. I love the grandeur of the hotel entrance and the pristine lobby and high ceilings, it was perfect. Once I met with Ivette, in which I called probably 10 min before arriving and she accomodated my last minute meeting, she took me to the 14th floor and already I was in love. The foyer is gorgeous and perfect to host a cocktail event. With dark expresso wood walls, marble floors at the entrance, and modern sofa lounge seating available, just gorgeous. It flows perfectly with the ballroom, there is no need to walk through a long hall in order to get to it. Now what really sold me was the ballroom itself; not too large, beautiful hanging ball lamps, huge floor to ceiling windows with views of the Bank of America building, and a gorgeous wrap around balcony for smokers, like my hubby, and non smokers to enjoy! This ballroom does not need any major transformation, the room itself is beautiful, with a mother of pearl wall and dark expresso wood walls; in other words, you don't need to spend an arm and a leg decorating, just add flowers and uplights, and your done!

I booked immediately with Ivette and they were flexible with deposit and payments. They did not require full 50% up front, just to reserve the date. I think depending how far away it is, they can work with you. Ivette was very helpful with choosing vendors and other questions I had along the way. She does get a little busy sometimes, so she has an assistant named Christy, who is just as helpful. The food tasting was amazing! Although I wish they would let you choose a little more hor'dorves to try, although I did not have one complaint about the ones we tried. I was a very relaxed bride so I did not require attention at all moments, nor did I bombard Ivette with a thousand questions. So planning at the Epic was a breeze.

Wedding day: I was able to get a gorgeous 1 bedroom suite to accomodate myself and my girls to get ready. We were 15 of us in the room (including make up artists, hair dresser, etc), and were comfortable! I would suggest to try to get this room because it will make your day so much more special. Room service was extremely attentive to all my girls requests as well! Before heading to the ceremony, I took some gorgeous pictures with my girls around the lobby, the hotel employees were aware and would help along the way with blocking some hotel guests from interrupting pictures. Back from the ceremony, my hubby and I were taken to the residency side of the Epic to avoid having passerbys interrupt our photos. The manager of the building came to us and asked if we wanted to take photos at their penthouse suite, and the photos came out absolutely gorgeous!!! That was very nice of them to allow us to do that.
Ivette followed us through and it was so much fun. Once we were done, she took us the back way into a meeting ballroom she set up for us to unwind with our drinks and a platter of our hor'deovurs. This was also a room set up for me to change into my second dress.

During the reception the service was outstanding and extremely attentive, not only to us, but to all our guests as well. They picked up after every meal and did not leave any plates after a while. My guests also told me that during the cocktail, the servers would be attentive of their drinks and brought them refills once my guests would finish. They also said the hor'dorves were in abundance and there was never a moment that they weren't offered a different dish.

I never tried the food because the hubby and I were all over the place saying hi to people, etc. I truly wish we did eat because till today everyone raves about the food.

Another great thing is once the reception was over everyone headed downstairs to the River Lounge (a beautiful venue) to keep the partying going. It was a great change of pace and perfect for the young people who want to stay up all night.

Cons: My 2 only complaints about the night were;
- I originally had a table seating layout that would have a table on the far right corner of the ballroom (facing the windows from the back wall). I tried to explain that I did not want that table there because it was a horrible spot and you could not see the rest of the room from there. I thought it was taken care of, but the table was there, and I was completely embarrassed when my guests asked jokingly if we didn't like them.
- I had planned for the curtains to be closed only at the beginning of the reception when my guests were being seated and to be opened during the middle of my first dance and kept open the entire night, but for some reason, they closed it after awhile (I believe bc the bank of america building lights shut off, but I did not care about that). I wanted them open till the end of the night. Because they were closed, alot of my guests were confused and kept walking to the foyer to use the balcony from there, that had no view of the city. So I was upset about that.

Other than those two complaints, I had a wonderful time. The hotel is brand new and beautiful and I would recommend it to everyone. All my guests keep raving about everything! I also love that they think I spent a bunch of money on everything because the food, drinks and venue were amazing!!

Hi E,

And yes it was a fabulous and beautiful wedding!!!!. Unfortunately, the hotel does not participate on any Reality Shows but you could still have the opportunity to be featured on a magazine if you photographer submits the images. It was a great pleasure working with both of you. Hope to see you soon again!!!!
