    I'm guessing about 3 miles or so. We took advantage of the complimentary hotel shuttle, but from what I recall, their last pick up is around 6 pm or so, so we took an Uber back. Was a lot easier that way.

    We also did not have a handicap room, but they probably have at least one. I would call to check though, just to be safe.
