Two nights in Miami before cruise

I am taking two teens on a cruise in March 2011, and need a hotel for two nights in Miami. I could rent a car for the two days, stay anywhere in the area and drive to the beach.

Or, I could stay quasi near the Royal Caribbean port and use taxis. Any recommendations?

ps.. no car needed.. within walking distance to shops and restaurants, the beach... (not sure of the weather though).. the hotel caters to families and is the best in the area for that.. there is a fun bowling alley, shopping, movies, museums, parks, zoos, and attractions all nearby if you want to do any of that.

Loews is a killer spot. Great rooms, spa, eats, service, and just a couple of blocks from the Ocean Dr. mix. It is a big time resort, so make sure your pockets are full of $5 bills for tips. If your looking for a more budget friendly spot at the beach, take a look at the Courtyard Miami Oceanfront. Good for families, right on a great beach, and more casual. Its also an easy taxi ride to the cruise docks.

Stay on South Beach & you won't need a car; everything you & the kids want will be within walking distance. Cab will be $32 flat rate + tip & about $25 from SoBe to port.
