          Yes, taxis are available outside the hotel (down the street to the right a bit). Or, if you have a very early flight, the front desk can book you a taxi for a specific time (no extra cost).

          I don't know if the hotel has a laundromat,but, they probably have service to do a customer's laundry with a fee. It is located centrally, so there should be a laundromat in that area. The staff are very helpful.
