I prefer using Protea hotels when I travel for business as the standard is acceptable for business travel. You know what you are going to be getting. However, on this occasion I was allocated a room that had not been made up. This is quite concerning as one would expect better.

It is always harder to coordinate the shuttle at the airport due to immigration, laugage and so on. Going back to Airport shuttle is quarter past/quarter to. They also have shuttle to Emperor place that is a cluster of restaurants and movie theatre. The Uber from Airport to hotels should be USD 7-8.
