          Hi, how far is the hotel from the international convention center? Is it safe to walk from the convention center back to the hotel at night? Is it safe to catch a taxi from the convention to the hotel at night? Much appreciated!

          I would suggest that you use a taxi. Won't recommend the walking. The streets do tend to get quiet and it can be an insecure feeling to walk. You do tend to find vagrants around, which can be intimidating.
