JES, this subject has been discussed at great length here if you do a text search (try Venice AND airport) but I'll give you a brief summary. 3 ways to go
water taxi-easiest, fastest (about 20 mins) & MOST expensive-about 85 euros for the trip regardless of # of people-will take you right to the door/dock of your hotel if it's on a canal

alilaguna-water bus 10euros/person see info at alilaguna.com about 1 hr 10 mins (makes stops before San Marco)

land bus to P. Roma then transfer to a vaparetto (local water bus) to a stop nearest to your hotel. cheapest option (about 3 euros/person for land bus) look on actv.com for info

JES: We just returned last night from our 5th trip to Venice. If you take the land bus, it is 3 euros, but it will cost you 5 euros for your trip on the Grand Canal. While you save 2 euros, you have to lug your bags from the bus stop to the vaperetto. If your hotel is anywhere near San Marco, it is worth the extra 2 euros for the views coming to San Marco and for only transferring bags one time.
