I just stayed at Aura to sleep from 12 AM to 6 AM, between a very long layover. The shuttle bus to the airport in the morning was very convenient, but during my trip the last bus came at 10:30 PM. (So I paid $25 for a cab because I was traveling and didn't have phone data to use Lyft - airport wifi wasn't good enough.) The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Just call them and check the free airport shuttle bus schedule if that's a major factor for your trip.

Waited 40 minutes for the shuttle to arrive. Staff was OK. Were going to find a nearby restaurant for dinner but didn't feel safe in the neighborhood so decided to order in.
