What is best way to get there from the airport?

"Check the noise level in the rooms. It also depends on the weekday"
"None - all fine, with several thoughtful and useful additions."
"All rooms are good. On a Friday or Saturday night, group parties are popular - so, avoid rooms facing the courtyard."
"This hotel is an urban location . I suggest ear plugs if evening sreet niose is an issue."
"They are all good."
