Our last hotel is 5 minutes from the Venice airport where we will arise early Saturday morning for the long trip home.
Really a wonderful trip! - I couldn't have asked for a better companion for our adventures. Hope this will be the first of many travels for Rowan.

Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard by Marriott Venice Airport Tessera
Right next to the airport
We stayed for one night in this hotel when we had to take a flight next morning from the marco polo airport. Its right next to the airport, and they have a shuttle service every half hour which takes 3 minutes to reach the airport.
Lovely breakfast and friendly staff. The room was very refreshing, smelling grt and had all facilities from bath tub to dryer.
Its a good one if u are in a transit.
Helpful staff, 1/2 hour by bus to Venice
The bus to Venice stops right accross the street and is very inexpensive. It's about a half hour ride. The staff is very friendly and helpful and speak enough English to accomodate. Nice clean rooms (except the upper shelves seem to rarely get dusted), but the housekeeping staff never replaced our used coffee cups or the complimentary coffee, creamer and sugar packs. I had to get them from the front desk myself. They do not have rollaway beds or cots and we had to get 3 rooms for 5 people for 5 nights. If you are driving there, good luck, the roads are not marked as one might expect. If you are flying to Venice, the hotel is fairly close to the airport, and your cab ride shouldn't be too costly. Overall, we had a pleasant stay, and would book there again.
Great place near airport
Got a tip from a trip advisor member that this would be a good place to stay when departing Venice on an early flight. Once again TA is right!. This is a beautifully appointed hotel with a sleek modern style. I don't know the age of the hotel but it looks new, very clean. Didn't know what to expect when we saw the hotel from the outside b/c it is a plain red brick structure. When touring Venice, we stayed on the island, but this hotel is the perfect choice if you have a morning flight out of Venice. Located right outside the entrance to the airport and they provide shuttle service.
I stayed there for two days on a business trip.
The hotel is fairly new and it was very clean. The room was great, spacious and all the amenities you look for in a business hotel.
They also have a very nice restaurant and I had a great dinner there. The breakfast buffet had a great selection and the service was very good too.
Definitley would stay there again for business or a pre cruise.
Convenient Location - Free Shuttle
Our reason for flying to Venice was to board a ship for a cruise. We had already experienced disembarking a ship in Venice and schlepping our luggage up and down the many bridges, and in and out of moving water transportation. The decision was to not repeat the exercise on this trip.
I was delighted to discover that the Courtyard by Marriott was near the airport and provided a free shuttle bus to and from the airport. This property was closed for several months due to a major renovation and the results were beautiful. Our check-in was smooth and the staff very friendly. As typical with so many Europeans their command of English was at least a thousand times better than any Italian I could manage. The room was cozy, the bed comfortable, the bathroom was a good size and the shower water pressure was impressive. At the time of our stay the renovations to the pool and gym were not ready for our use. The Venetian plaster on all the walls was amazing work.
There is a restaurant on site and a hot breakfast costs 8 euro per person. We never noticed any noise from the airplanes and went for a walk in the neighbourhood in the late afternoon to get some exercise.
Our check-out was smooth and friendly. We walked across the street with our luggage and waited for the local bus (one euro per person) to take us to the Piazzale Roma in Venice where we boarded the ships shuttle bus to the port. The local bus from the hotel accommodates passengers with luggage as they have racks on which to place your bags.
PS - as we were sailing out Venice I did notice that some of the pedestrian bridges in Venice were now fitted with ramps to ease the hauling of luggage.
Good location/Great Value/Friendly Staff
If you don't want to pay the expense of staying on the island then stay here. Great location near the airport with a regular bus that takes about 15 minutes to get to Venice. (Rate is abt 100 euros).
For around 11 euros you can get an all day ticket that covers the bus journey to the islands and the ferry service.
Rooms are modern, clean and about (at least) twice the size of the typical european hotel.
The staff are very friendly especially Claudia who went out of her way to help us.
Great Choice Near Airport
I was unfortunately in Venice only for one night, and needed to stay near the airport, since I was travelling with a colleague who had a very early morning flight. The Courtyard turned out to be a wonderful choice. My room was extremely large by European standards, and was furnished with all the amenities I am used to from an American business hotel. The staff was accomodating. As other reviewers have mentioned, the best way to get to the city from the Courtyard is to take a public bus. I was a little leary of this, but it turned out to be very easy. The bus stop is across the street, the front desk sells bus tickets, and the trip in or out took less than 25 minutes every time. Overall, I was very happy using this hotel as a "base" where I could leave my luggage and valuables, and then visit the city without encumberences. I may have missed out on the ambiance of staying in Venice itself, but I definitely enjoyed returning to the comfortable room...
Great airport location convenient to get to island
I had just one day in Venice and a 6 am Sunday flight. I didn't book this place but business partner did. I found it a nice contemporary hotel with many amenities. Very comfortable and it was extremely convenient to get to the tourist area. The bus is 50 feet away, you just get off at teh last stop. On the way back take the airport bus- It was very easy. The walk from the bus drop off to the main St Mark square is lengthy but I found that isn't the place to be unless you just stepped off a cruise ship and are escorted by someone with a colored umbrella. The indirect route to through the city was the best part of the short stay. I saw several groups of travelers looking for their hotels wearing frustrations on their faces and generally not enjoying themselves. Back to the Courtyard. I would say it is cool and has standards of a North american hotel. If you have an early flight it is perfect. The shuttle will get you there in seconds. You are a few hundred yards from the airport and could walk there in a pinch without problem. speaking of problems they do have an exterior fire exit on the side of the building. It is this big metal thing which is screened by some trees. If it is windy the trees clang against the metal and sound like your neighbor is banging wire hangers together in their closet all night. I figured out all this moments before my wake up call at 4:15 am. Oh well next time do not take the room on the end or you may be sorry. overall I would stay there again. super convenient to the airport and no brainer to get into the tourist zone and back without having to stay in an old place with triple the price. Stay there you won't be sorry.
Great Hotel - defintely would stay again
Great Hotel, preferectly located close to the airport. shuttle service from airport which only takes 5 minutes to the hotel.
Staff were very friendly and helpful at all times.
Hotel was very clean, bedrooms were beautifully decorated.
As for getting into Venice it was perfect - there is a bus stop outside the hotel and a bus goes every 15 minutes into the city, and it take approx 20 minutes through the lovely country side. Last bus coming back to the hotel was around 12:30am.
Was so glad we were staying there when we saw loads of poeple arriving in Venice having to carry their bags over many of the bridges which was very difficult in the heat and the amount of tourists aabout.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Venice.
Use only as last resort
The highest hotel rate of our trip was also the worst. With an early morning flight, we decided to spend the night near the airport. We choose the Courtyard Marriott based on reviews -- and were extremely disappointed. A huge tour group arrived at night and banged their doors until midnight. Then power went out for 4 hours -- and all of us were left without any light (I stubbed my toe getting to/from the bathroom). The staff did not even apologise at the situation -- but were more than willing to take my money. I know that the tour group wasn't their fault but the staff could have acted more willing to address the problem for future visitors. Obviously, we will not be one of them.
