These hotels are extremely convenient if you plan to spend most of your time exploring Venice, because they're only a few meters from the Lido Santa Maria Elisabetta vaporetto and airport-boat station.
They're also handy if you're departing or arriving by ship at Venice's Marittima cruise terminals. (Alilaguna's Linea Blu airport boat offers direct service between Lido S.M.E. and Marittima.)

Many of its 22 double and triple rooms have views of Venice and boat traffic in the Lagoon.
Belvedere (3 stars)
The Belvedere is directly across from the ACTV and Alilaguna waterbus piers.
It has 30 rooms, and Wi-Fi is included in the rates.
Pets are welcome (with no extra charges) at this popular 60-room hotel on the Lido's waterfront.
Rooms include singles, doubles, triples, and quads.
The following hotels are a few minutes inland from waterbus station on foot.
They're located directly on the island's main shopping street, the Gran Viale Santa Maria Elisabetta, which runs directly from the boat stop to the Lido's public beach over level ground.
For a memorable taste of early 20th Century glamour and style, book a room or a suite at the Ausonia & Hungaria, an historic hotel that opened in 1907.
The hotel's façade is covered in mosaic tiles, and much of the furniture in the public rooms is original. (The spa, which offers Thai massages, is a 21st Century amenity.)
This 54-room hotel is in the heart of the Lido's business district, in a location that's busy in the daytime but quiet at night. It has a comfortable lobby, a bar, and private parking.
The waterbus station is only two blocks away.
For value, it's hard to beat the Hotel Cristallo, which is only a few minutes on foot from the waterbus stop on the Gran Viale Santa Maria Elisabetta.
Don't let the 2-star category fool you: The Cristallo has an elevator, many of the air-conditioned rooms are quite large, and rates include free Wi-Fi. Be sure to try the croissants at the breakfast buffet, which are excellent by Venetian standards.
(Tip: If you visit the Cristallo for three days or longer during the summer months, you'll have free access to a private beach club nearby.)
