Downtown Miami’s Kimpton EPIC Hotel is getting a major renovation, which will include the lobby, hotel rooms, and pool area. The whole shebang will be ready in time for the fall and winter tourist season. Check out the press release, and remodeled guestroom photos, below:
Situated in the heart of Downtown Miami, with unparalleled views of Biscayne Bay, Kimpton EPIC will be fully reimagined with Miami-inspired elements, while maintaining its beloved sophistication and high-end feel. The finishes, furniture, and amenities will be acutely refined, and elegantly minimal with an organic sensibility. High-impact artwork will evoke several elements including the natural components of the Earth while speaking to the Miami landscape and personality in a modern and abstract manner. Renovation highlights include:
Upon arrival, guests will experience a different approach to minimal and sophisticated elegance in the hotel’s reimagined lobby area. Hues in wheat, gray and white, with a layer of soft harbor blue, offer a modern and high-end beach palette in the arrival and reception area. Black and bronze metals, woven linen, marble and custom hardware featured throughout will exhibit the luxurious feeling that Miami evokes within.
Travelers will love the driftwood-inspired slatted headboards, wood-look tile flooring throughout the guestrooms, marble base table and chairs and private patios with custom furniture, all overlooking Biscayne Bay.
Art featured within the guestrooms has a local sensibility, with a specific focus on highlighting Miami’s flourishing art scene.
Two EPICally detailed suites – a Hospitality and a Presidential, both residing on the corners of hotels 30th floor, with wrap around balconies and sweeping views of the city lights, the bay, and ocean – will each feature curated, one-of-a-kind furniture, collected art and various functional considerations for entertaining and hosting.
The high-end sophisticated feel of the property will extend into the hotel’s expansive 16th-floor pool terrace as well, with new European furnishes and a clean and modern color palette that has playful touches for an energetic pool vibe. Guests will enjoy new daybeds, sofas and dining areas, making the terrace the perfect space to lounge both day and night.
As with all Kimpton properties, the approach is a bespoke design. Virtually all furniture, lighting and artwork are custom and proprietary to the hotel.
The hotel’s redesign, expected to be completed by the end of September, is masterminded by the talented in-house Kimpton design team under the helm of Ave Bradley, Creative Director & Global SVP of Design, and Diana Martinez, Senior Design Director at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants
