Transportation to and from airport:

Although there are shuttle services between the airport and hotel, they are limited at this time of year and are typically no cheaper than hiring a taxi or limo.  The following limos have been suggested as good options: Airline Limo or Atlantis Limo -  Their fares are comparable (between $63 and $67 one-way not including tip) and both can be reserved in advance.
