I am sorry for waiting so long to reply to my own thread. I stayed in the Hilton Molina Stucky for my Venice stay. It is almost directly across from cruise port. They have hotel shuttle which takes you to St. Marks every thirty minutes; and my wife and I jumped on the Vaperreto to cruise port. I believe it was 3E from hotel to cruise port. About a five min ride. Sorry I took so long to answer. BTW; we went on 14 night cruise May 2015.
