          It is better to get a proper consult from hotel itself as some hotel may allowed pets to stay too.

          We have an 0620 hrs (6:20 AM) international flight from Ataturk the morning we check out. We will each have a large suitcase and a roll-on, so I am fairly certain that we will need to use a Taxi rather than the subway. What time should we plan on leaving the hotel so as not to have problems reaching the airport and processing tickets and security? How long does it take for the taxi to travel from the hotel to the airport?
