Default Venice transportation

I am hoping someone can give us advice on getting from the airport to our hotel in Venice. We are staying one night at the Best Western Olympia hotel pre cruise for one night. I have read about people movers, I assume are buses and water taxies but am confused on which we should use and how to get them. We are not much of walkers unless its a short distance. Also any advice on where to eat the evening we get there would be great. Since we are flying all night and land in Venice about 3:30 pm we want to stay close to our hotel if at all possible. Thanks for ANY advice you can give us.

There are several options, it all depends on your budget and patience. For the absolute least walking you could take a water taxi from the airport to you hotel. This is also the most expensive. There is a bus that comes into Venice not far from your hotel. I think there is a train though the walk would be a little longer. We took the water bus, different from the vaporhetto in town, there are a few different routes. Be sure they have a drop off point near your hotel. The closest would probably be Piazza Roma

this site has lots of good info on visiting Venice
Arriving in Venice

You could take the bus from the airport 3-4 Euro PP to Piazzale Roma then walk
Or a land taxi to the area
