You might consider the South Beach area which is the southern 2 miles or so of Miami Beach. Miami Beach is a separate city and a short cab ride from the Port of Miami. Stay somewhere north of 5th Street and south of 22nd Street and you can walk to tons of places to shop, drink, eat and enjoy the beach. A taxi cab ride to MIA airport is fixed at $28 plus tip and takes less than 20 minutes or so.

Know that "Miami Beach" has it's own forum on this web site as you consider what hotel to stay at.
