Not only did they pick me up from the airport and drop me off, they also had hourly shuttles to downtown restaurants and other attractions. We had to reserve rides an hour in advance but it sure beat the $25 cost of the can ride. They will also pick up from downtown. I would stay here for this service alone because the bus rides (which I also tried) are a bit challenging in winter due to some unpredictability in schedules (since buses get stuck in snow also) and even the nearest stop is about 2 block away. The hotel had a reasonable hot breakfast every morning and the business services computers and printer worked fine for printing boarding passes. The Christmas decor in the hotel was nice and they also had a fire-pit and some chairs at the back for ambiance and to sit around and chat. The room was very well setup and spacious. The bed was comfortable and I slept well for four nights. The people who checked me in did not mention the shuttle to downtown - that would have helped. After fighting the buses the first couple of days, I decided to ask and then I found out! Although on one of the bus rides I met a great driver who shared some interesting stories with me.
