    The staff was super friendly, Free unlimited wifi, and free laundry. And the room was super clean and nice. And free airport transfer. And it's only 5 minutes by car to the airport, you can walk but it will take 30 min walk.

    Get the airport shuttle The folks who run the shuttle also manage the hotel. They are great people. Do not use a cab. They are expensive

    If there is no public transportation within walking distance, take the complimentary shuttle to the airport, I'm confident that there are buses making scheduled runs to the city center...check the airport website.

    They do not start the airport shuttle service too early, maybe 8 AM. They arranged a 4:30 AM taxi for me. It showed up on time and only cost about $7 (USD) with tip.
