Only hand-picked hotel suggestions, based on several recommendations:
Every traveller will find an adequate accomodation in Venice. The abundance of offerings includes high end hotels like the Danieli and the Cipriani, elegant five and four star places in traditional houses, budget accommodation with very good but sometimes very poor quality and very cheap and shabby places. The best is to follow recommendations by friends or other travelers in choosing your accommodation of choice.
In general you should decide in which part of the city you want to reside and find your accomodation in Venice. There is the main walkway circle where most tourist walk with a lot of offerings either directly on the walkway or right into a side street. You can stay on the broad and impressive Riva degli Schiavone, the walkway right on the waterfrontwhich passes the Piazza San Marco and offers a nice long walk towards the eastern part of the island. If you choose to experience the feeling of the local inhabitants in more silent quarters of the island, look around at the Cannaregio area in the northern part of the island or in the Dorseduro area in the southern part with the elegant and very charming Zattero walkway, from where you can watch the sunsets. Very charming is also the island Guidecca. If you need some more distance from the intense life on the main island, Lido de Venezia offers some distance, streets for nice bicycle rides and long sandy beaches.
Besides hotels, there are many apartments you can choose from, in case you would like to cook you own pasta at some time during your visit.
Be careful to choose well as the quality standards vary significantly. I have to say that we never were disappointed so far.
