Madrid - October 12, '18 national holiday problems?

We have a package that includes a night at the Melia Madrid Princessa for one night leaving October 12. Will this be a problem getting to the airport for an 11 am flight since it's a national holiday? Any tips? Thank you. It can't be changed and we have a driver for the airport.

Public transport will be operating on a Sunday schedule, grocery stores will be closed (as they do on Sunday).

Otherwise everything else will be working as usual (on a Sunday)

This will definitely not be a problem. The Melia can easily book a taxi for you. Leaving the hotel at 8:30am will give you plenty of time to make your flight.
