For early-morning departures from Venice's Marco Polo Airport, we recommend any of these hotel options:
A hotel near the Mestre Railroad Station on the mainland. (See listings.) From the station, the inexpensive ATVO "Fly Bus" has frequent departures to Marco Polo Airport, and the journey takes only 17 minutes.
The Best Western Titian Inn Hotel & Residence, a three-star hotel within 900 meters (about 0.6 mile) of the Venice Marco Polo Airport terminal. You can park your rental car if you have one, and a restaurant is nearby. Also convenient is the Courtyard by Marriott Venice Airport, which is about 900 meters from the airport terminals. (Note: We recommend these hotels only if you have a car, since there's no real advantage to staying on the outskirts of Mestre unless you're planning to drop off a rental car or park at the airport.)
Other good choices that aren't too far from the airport include Dream, Agriturismo Il Melograno, B&B Airport Venice Diego 2, and La Noghera. (These are most practical if you're going to the airport by rental car.)
If you're a little more adventurous and are willing to pay close attention to the Alilaguna boat timetable, another possibility is also worth considering:
Again, you have several convenient choices:
ATVO airport bus from the Piazzale Roma. The blue express coaches normally start running at 5 a.m. and take 20 minutes to reach the airport departure terminal.
A car taxi from the Piazzale Roma. Figure €30-35 for the fare and 15-20 minutes for the trip.
A water taxi from your hotel, which shouldn't take more than 20-25 minutes but can easily cost €100 or more. (However, you'll need to walk from the pier to the terminal when you reach the airport, which can take 10 minutes or so.)
For early departures, we do not recommend the Alilaguna airport boat, because the trip will take longer than a bus, car taxi, or water taxi, and you'll waste valuable time walking from the Alilaguna and water taxi piers to the terminal after you reach the airport. (Exception: If you're staying on Murano, the airport boat is worth considering.)
We also do not recommend relying on a vaporetto (water bus) to reach the Piazzale Roma if you're leaving at the crack of dawn. You'll save yourself hassle and worry by staying near the airport or the Piazzale Roma. (If your departure is at a more reasonable hour, you can stay anywhere and take the Alilaguna airport boat to Marco Polo Airport.)
If you're departing from Treviso Airport, which is about 25 km or 16 miles from Venice, you can book a hotel near the Piazzale Roma and catch the Treviso airport bus, or you might want to spend the night in Treviso's attractive town center (for example, at the Hotel Continental) and take a taxi or local bus to the airport. (See more Treviso hotel listings.)
