I thought it would be great to stay at a hotel connected to the airport. However, unless you are in terminal B or C it is a hassle. They only had one bus operating and it has full so I could not get on. There is no way to make a reservation. The front desk was rude about it too. It is apparently the fault of the guests that there were too many who wanted to get to the terminal. Of course the hotels poor planning on having only 1 bus and no way to reserve a slot was blameless (note sarcasm here for those who don't know me).
So when a bus comes it is free for all to get a spot. People who are not aggressive certainly could continually get bumped as more people keep showing up and there is no bus entry management.
I had to walk a long way to terminal E toting 3 bags.
I recommend off airport hotels that are less expensive and provide inclusive parking. If you are going to deal with a shuttle why does it matter how close you are?
