Where to stay pre cruise?

We are flying in from the uk and need a good quality hotel for 2 nights pre cruise end of feb. We have stayed at the hilton marina before but just for 1 night and did not have time to see fort lauderdale before getting on cruise. Not sure what fort lauderdale is like - we have stayed in Miami previously (Eden rock) and want a similar standard of hotel which is close to beach and shops. Would like to go to sawgrass mills as well if time allows or is there good shopping in the town? Lago Mar looks nice and also the Hilton beach but just need some guidance please.

I understand that the Doubletree Gallery One does a cruise package, it is close to the Galleria Mall which is very good, it's an upscale mall but seems to have many bargains.

i will be staying at the Gallery One for one night pre-cruise this week.

I picked it because it was within walking distance to the Galleria Mall and a Publicx grovery store to purchase wine. it also has a water taxi stop. Will take the water taxi in the evening to see the intercoastal waterway and have a nice dinner out doors at one of the many eateries.

Each roon has a living area, small kitchen plus bedroom and bath.
