I was curious about the location so I looked it up. As you said, it looks very walkable according to Google Maps, street view shows a clear sidewalk under the freeway, and the walk is only 4 minutes. As shitty as Tucson is for pedestrians, they clearly deliberately made an easy path between the hotel and the convention center, which actually makes sense for a change.
Like weather-wise or walking paths? There are definitely some streets that are a pain to walk on because of the lack of sidewalks, but there's usually at least a wide strip of dirt to walk on on one side of a busy street.
But this heat will murder the fuck out of people if they're not careful.
Walking paths. Gotta bear in mind that I'm from a city that was built for pedestrians and there are few places you can't get to safely on foot, so my perspective is a bit skewed.
