  • Is the breakfast included in the final price? If not how do we go about reserving it? Also some sites state that you have a free shuttle within a 1 mile radius but your site doesn't mention it. Thanks

    Breakfast is not included and we would be happy to make you a reservation for our lobby bar and grill if you would like to call the hotel directly. We offer shuttle service to and from the airport only.
