Between the Airport & Gare Saint-Jean there is a the Navette Shuttle
that will take you between the two for €7.20 (takes about 1/2 hour).
2 hotels I have stayed at near the station are:-
- All Seasons on Rue de Tauzia (pretty much opposite the station) &
- Ibis on Quai de Paludate (about 400m from the station near the river - I dragged a bike in a cardboard box between there & the station OK without damaging either myself or the bike).
Both of them seemed OK with bikes. I was at All Seasons with a group & we had use of a room as an impromptu workshop to get bikes ready to go. At the Ibis it was just me & my bike in a box but they were happy to store it in a locked room for me. I don't know if either could organise a bike box but...
...A Google search
gives various bike shops including Holland Bikes
just along the Rue de Tauzia from the All Seasons. They might be able to sort you a box, especially if you contact them in advance.
