          I didn't see anyone having extra guests at the hotel. The lobby area is large and comfortable, so it would be a nice place to gather if the management agrees.

          Is there an airport shuttle? I've seen various reviews that mention a shuttle, but one said you have to pay for it. Does anyone know how much and how to arrange for it?

          Just call the hotel to send a taxi to pick you up. Might cost $30-40 but it's safer than getting a taxi outside the arrival area

          It's about 15 mins from the airport and taxi would charge $20 to $22. Enjoy your trip
