Unfortunately I have no idea but suggest you check directly with the hotel as they must have such questions all the time.

It is also possible to walk its about 10 mins but there is substantial construction currently at the airport building a novotel hotel next to the terminal and this can add time. Shuttles are free and a lot easier 😀
