J3 meetings have been at Emerald Suites for several years now. Although
it's cheap, we stay there because it's inexpensive. The web page you
quoted indicated that the guest was disappointed by not having access to
the shuttle. The ad this customer read is probably out of date.
Emerald Suites had a general-use shuttle several years ago, but they
discontinued it to reduce their costs. The J3 contract, however, gives
us access to their shuttle, so long as we schedule it in advance by a
few hours. For airport pickup, contact the hotel by e-mail and let them
know when you'll be arriving; they should pick you up without too much
delay. Instructions are in the "Transportation" paragraph of the
meeting notice (attached). If they won't pick you up, keep your taxi
receipt and the hotel will refund it.
