Sorry I don't know but I can tell you that it's a very short ride to the airport - 10 minutes tops (although I did not do it in rush hour).

I would not stay at this hotel ever again. It's the worst experience. We stayed 7 hotels in our 3 week vacation and the worst was this hotel. Run down, noisy, room is dirty looking. Filthy.
