Taxi or Uber/Lyft.

How much luggage, and how many people? You can get within two blocks by public transportation (airport train line and switch at Jefferson Station to the Market Frankfort subway line to get to 5th Street) but generally a car ride is easier and there may be little cost difference. Bottom line, if you’ll have luggage, take a car.

Go to the hotels website and they will have a route planner

You don't need a route planner. They will tell you what has been suggested here. A taxi is a fixed price of $28.50 plus $1 for each additional passenger and a tip. Non surge Uberx would be about $30. If you are one or two, Uber Pool is around $20.

Taking the Septa airport line into Philadelphia and then onward to Jefferson Station and walking to your hotel would be about a 45 minute trip. Uber/Lyft/Taxi about 15 minutes as you'd be on Interstate 95 for most of the trip and barring any accidents would cover the 10 miles pretty quickly.

Yes around $30 plus a 20% tip. It's well worth it.
