I'm overnighting in mid September at the Hilton Phoenix Airport from a flight from the UK.
Looking at the maps there doesn't seem to be much near the hotel, and Tempe seems the nearest place. Maps say that it is about 3 miles to walk to somewhere like Mill Ave.
I'll be due to land (all being well) about 5.30, so expect to be at the hotel by 7. At my walking pace 3 miles will be about 45 mins.
First question is, would walking from one to the other at night be safe and if so will it be worthwhile or am I better off spending the evening at the hotel bar lol?
Second question is the same for the morning (though swap the bar out and put the hotel pool in!) Given the time difference I'll probably wake early but would be expecting to leave the hotel about 11ish?
I'm not adversed to getting a cab but quite like walking and seeing the local area. I did look into trying to hire a bicycle but that seems to have been a non-starter.
If the general advice is I'm too far away and better off enjoying the hotel, thats fine.
Many thanks in advance.
