You want your people to get there from their guest room elevator, or at least via lobby.

But I get it - unless it's in bad disrepair, it may not be worth the price tag to build new. There's significant competition, though, in Embassy Suites, and in other hotels coming to Downtown (Alamite to have conference space as well, I believe).
Oh ok, I see what you're saying now. I'm only familiar to a certain extent with the conference center, so I don't know how the sidewalks between it and the hotel match up with the exhibition halls and other facilities. So, you may be right, it may not work to just slap a roof over the paths between buildings.
