Venice Airport Hotels
Where to stay for easy access to Venice Marco Polo Airport.
Still, if you have an extremely early flight, you can pick from several hotels nearby: the Courtyard by Marriott Venice Airport (4 stars), Annia Park Hotel Venice Airport (4 stars), Antony Hotel (4 stars), Best Western Titian Inn (3 stars), or the Hotel Gronda Luganare (2 stars).
All five hotels are less than a kilometer from Marco Polo Airport, and a hotel shuttle will get you to the terminal at the crack of dawn in less time (and at considerably less cost) than a taxi ride from central Venice or Mestre.
If your departure hour is more reasonable, a better strategy is to choose a hotel in Venice near the Piazzale Roma, where the causeway from the mainland brings buses and taxis into the historic center. From the Piazzale Roma, it's only a 20-minute trip to Marco Polo Airport via frequent airport buses, but you'll still be able to spend your last night in the city proper.
The Piazzale Roma also has special ATVO buses that connect with Ryanair and Transavia/Basiq-Air flights at Treviso airport, and it's convenient if you're transferring to or from the Venice Cruise Terminal by cab.
If you'd rather be near the main tourist sites and your flight doesn't leave too early, hotels within easy walking distance of the San Marco Alilaguna airport-boat stop are convenient. Alilaguna water buses connect the city center with the airport in 70 minutes. (Allow an extra 7-10 minutes for the walk between the boat pier and the departure terminal at the airport.)
On the following pages, we've linked to hotels that are convenient to public airport transportation and land taxis. (Of course, if you're willing to spend €110 or more for a private water taxi, you can stay at just about any hotel in town.)
