We just got back from Florida where we spent a week with 3 year old. After extensive research we decided to stay in Hotel Boulan at Miami Beach. Its one block away from the beach, hotel provides umbrellas and chairs, they have a pool in on the roof with beach beds and comfortable baldachin- type beds ( everything is guarded so kids can't really run away).
The pool does not have a bar- so the ( young) crowd is not that much interested staying there- so the pool area is quiet, clean and pretty private.
Almost every room has a balcony- some of them patio.
The main thing is : a room. The room was about 700 Sf with full kitchen, big dinning tables, washer and dryer ,( that came very handy after every day at the beach!) two TVs ( one in the living room one in the "bedroom" , cable, two bathrooms). Its really an apartment .
Although the entire hotel has a modern design and is nor designed for children, it is children friendly, employees are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is included in near by " Charles St NYC " restaurant ( don;t expect much expect for the tasty fresh pastries , fresh squeeze OJ and Lavazza coffee)
The hotel entrance is across the park, literately next to the Museum, Public Library, and blocks away from Miami Symphony Orchestra.
There is a small deli ( Ocean Deli) right around the corner, and Wallmart is 2 blocks away.
I think this hotel is still a hidden gem as it is relatively new. They are near by Richmond, Reighly, Loews, Ritz Carlton....
Also if you do a booking through hotels.com, orbitz, etc.... you will probably get around $50 off-the room-price per day
