Default Advice - where to stay in Miami with family

Going to Miami second week on July with the family and the boat to cruise around for a few days and then head to Hawks Cay for a few days. What hotels are nice in Miami along the beach, north of South Beach - nice beaches, good value, nice pools, etc.

Want to take the kids around stiltville, the cruise ships, intercoastal, Maimi River etc. My oldest was a baby the last time he went anywhere down there by boat.

Also, they still have the big launch ramp down in Coconut Grove by Monty Trainers?

Thanks, any advice would be helpful!

My mother in law stayed at Loews on Miami Beach a couple of years ago and liked it.

The Fountainblue has been redone and opened and i believe they are seeking families or atr least have family themes.
Some nice places on Key Biscayne also.

Coconut Grove and you will be right across from Bay.
The Mutiny Hotel and Dinner Key Marina is across the street and just minutes from Stiltsville.
Here are the links

Joe:

If you're gonna be on the boat, the Marriott at Biscayne Bay has the marina on the water at the hotel and is nice and kind of central to everything. Just a thought. Its hot in July! Don't turn off the A/C!

Best Regards,
