Wow 400 € seems like a lot for one night at a best western, even in Venice. We stayed at a Westin property close to San Marco and on the Grand Canal for about $450. It was a couple of years ago but it was also June. The trick is to minimize the number of bridges between your hotel and where you hit the island. A private water taxi might cut this to zero but will come at a cost, about 100€.
