All of the above are pretty accurate. It's only a few miles from Old Town but traffic and people walking around will dictate how long it'll take. I personally chose to drive in the morning and park in the parking garage... More
All of the above are pretty accurate. It's only a few miles from Old Town but traffic and people walking around will dictate how long it'll take. I personally chose to drive in the morning and park in the parking garage before it got too full. Not very expensive to park for the day. There is a tour shuttle that can pick you up at the hotel and bring you to/from but you may get stuck waiting for other pick-ups and drop-offs.
