One night better to stay at FLL area hotel or beachfront?

My husband and I fly in to FLL about noon and have the remainder of the day to check out the beach. We leave the next day for a cruise. Is it easy to get from a FLL area hotel to the beach, or better to just stay at a beachfront hotel? We want to see the beach, shops, etc. We dont need to be at the port until 1pm the next day, so will want to be somewhere close to grab a late breakfast. Thanks

Depending on your budget I would suggest staying close to the beach at the southern end because that would put you a short journey to the port. Perhaps look at Marriott Harbour Beach, Lago Mar, B Ocean or if they are over budget the Best Western Oceanside, if you want central beach area perhaps the Courtyard Marriott. You would look at the hotels on SE17th Street closer to the port but a trolley ride to the beach.
