Have heard very good things about the Palms, its in a great location. With budget no issue then I would take my pick of Eden Roc, Fontainebleau, Miami Beach Grand (further north than south beach if you get my meaning- youll need to taxi/drive to South Beach) or the Loews.
I would give the Ritz Carlton a miss- Key Biscayne is a drive out from everything. The beaches are amazing, the area is lovely, but its out of the way. The first 3 hotels are all in the same run on Collins Ave, right on the beach, lovely hotels.
The Loews is in South beach, perfect location, lovely hotel and pool, but it is a huge hotel. It is a little impersonal, but that doesnt bother me at all.
Have fun choosing!
Edited to add that I would avoid Coconut Grove if Cocowalk is still under construction, which I think it is looking on Tripadvisor. For us Cocowalk was the main choice of restaurants and shops in Coconu Grove. We turned up there 2 years ago, to eat at the Cheesecake Factory, and the whole mall was being demolished.

We stayed at Miami Beach a few years ago and loved it.

Most welcome. Glad to help on here in some way. DH and I got married on Miami Beach at the Miami Beach Resort (15 years ago...). Its right next to The Grand Beach, Eden Roc, Fontainebleu. I love the area, its not within walking distance of restaurants, but the area is lovely. I wouldnt recommend the Miami Beach Resort now for the sole reason that it seemed dated when we went in 2 years ago, and you may have a healthier budget than that. But, I personally would have no qualms about staying there (wish we had the last time instead of the Fritz - you can enter your own rhyming nickname here- Hotel on South Beach!)
Im very jealous, would love to go back soon!

We stayed at the Delano on south beach - another 5 star - great location- loads bars restaurants around - but the pool is smaller than looks on website. Drinks $20 a small beer at the pool! Very trendy - felt quite old - young glamorous people around pool putting their pictures on Instagram etc!

Wel loved the Kimpton Surfcomber. Free drinks in the reception area every afternoon for guests and right on the beach. Close to loads of great restaurants. The rooms were compact but clean, parking is valet and offsite so you would need to factor the pricing in. We would absolutely return!
