nice hotel near Ft Lauderdale airport but also near beach?

Hello. Do any of you have a recommendation for a nice moderately priced hotel to stay at for 2 nights? We will be leaving from Ft Lauderdale airport pretty early in the morning so we don't want to have a far drive or risk of huge traffic jams. Maybe 15 or 20 minutes would be great. On the other hand we will be staying for 2 nights and don't really want an airport hotel, would like something near the ocean or a nice location to stay at. We will be driving into Miami Beach, just want to be looking around at scenery and sights and such, we like to walk on the beach more than sunbathe. Like to have restaurants and shops a reasonable distance but don't need a party scene or clubs. We were thinking Ft Lauderdale as closest to the airport but we can really stay anywhere as long as we can get to the airport quickly in the morning. Any thoughts on a good place to stay?

The Sheraton Yankee Clipper or the Sheraton Yankee Trader - one is on the beach the other is across the road from the beach and about a 20/25 min drive from the FLL airport. Check their website to see if they offer shuttle service to/from FLL airport.
