HK Airport Express Shuttle Bus - hotel to station?

Hi,
Going to HK in a few days. Planning to take the H2 Airport Express Shuttle Bus from Hong Kong Station to City Garden Hotel where we are booked.
My question is - can we also take the AE shuttle bus from the hotel to Hong Kong Station? Where do we get the bus schedule and arrange for the ride?

Thanks a lot!

On arrival and going to your hotel is easy but I normally take a cab to the station as there are no fixed schedule for the bus and there's a possibility that the bus will be full.

The H2 shuttle every 20 minutes. It departs the HK station from 6:12a to 11:12p, and should arrive at the City Garden perhaps 20 minutes later. You don't and you can't arrange for the ride. Just show your boarding pass or e-ticket itinerary showing you're flying that day.

I honestly don't know if the shuttle is any different from the one on the Kowloon side, but we took the shuttle FROM our hotel to Kowloon station and it was no problem at all. You just wait on the street corner where the bus stops. We waited about 10 minutes before the bus showed up. Painless, plus it was great checking for our flight (and therefore dumping our luggage) at the train station.

Thank you all for your replies.
I'll see what I can find out from the shuttle bus counter on our arrival. If it's too much hassle, we'll take a cab.

I've returned from my trip to HK. We had no trouble at all getting to ride the AE shuttle bus from our hotel to Hong Kong Station. Apparently these buses stop at all their designated hotels to check if any guests want a ride. The trips to and from Hong Kong or Kowloon Station run like clockwork, so you can just arrange your schedule accordingly.
