The Hotel Ca' Formenta is located where Venice's main waterfront promenade meets the Via Garibaldi, a wide pedestrian street that angles inland from St. Mark's Basin.
The three-star, 14-room hotel is no more than 10 to 15 minutes from the Piazza San Marco on foot, and the setting is especially magical after dark when you can walk along the water and watch the lights of passing boats.
As you leave the Alilaguna Linea Blu and ACTV waterbus pier, turn right and walk toward the stone bridge.
Cross the bridge and continue past the Museo Storico Navale and the Hotel Bucintoro.
Cross the next small bridge.
Bear left into the Via Garibaldi, where you'll see the Hotel Ca' Formenta in the row of buildings on your left.

Take the Alilaguna Blue Line airport boat from the cruise basin to Arsenale. (The price will be about half of the airport fare.)
Follow the directions above.
Leave the terminal by the main doors and walk to the wooden bridge.
Cross the bridge and walk a short distance to the vaporetto station.
Take the No. 2 vaporetto (water bus) in the direction of San Zaccaria.
Get off at the Zaccaria stop, turn right, and walk along the waterfront until you reach the Via Garibaldi. (You'll need to cross five bridges, but otherwise the walk is over level pavement.)
