Hotel close to Venice Marco Polo airport and to Mestre rail

I will be taking a train from Trieste to Venice on a Friday afternoon in August to fly out of Venice really early on Saturday morning. It appears best to travel to the Mestre station as it is closest to the airport. I'm looking for a hotel easy to access from the Mestre rail station and also easy to get to the airport for an early flight. Any suggestions? I have looked at the Marriott Courtyard, Hilton Garden Inn and Best Western but am open to anything else closer.

A free breakfast may not be much use if the Saturday morning flight is 'really early'? Are you intending to go into Venice on the Friday evening? If not, I would just head for the nearest hotel to the airport. If you do wish to go into Venice you would be better staying near the Mestre train station as suggested above.

If you pick something close to Piazzale Roma, which is also near the Santa Lucia train station, just as easily reachable from Trieste as Mestre, it is very simple to reach the airport by the ACTV Aerobus which leaves there at 4:40am and reaches the airport at just before 5am, in plenty of time for any flight I have ever taken (the airport is just opening at 5am and even the earliest flights are still in full regime of check-in).

This way the evening, at least, you can relax and wander around Venice rather than be stuck in the rather seedy area around the Mestre train station, which is not an area I would wander around after dark unless I were with a large group of people.

So after reading posts maybe I should stay close to the airport or close to Santa Lucia. We spent 4 days in Venice last year so I'm not sure we will do much more than dinner there Friday night. Are there hotels really close to the airport. In previous years we have driven in and used a water taxi to get to an early flight. My flight to FCO is at 6:50.
