Rental car needed for downtown stay?

We are coming to Houston in August for the Jr. Olympics, flying into IAH and stay at the Hilton Americas downtown. I understand we can walk to the convention center from the hotel. We will be there 5 days. We don't want to rent a car unless necessary to get to restaurants (all day will be spent at convention center).

Is it feasible to walk to casual restaurants? Is it safe? Best airport shuttle?

Thank you!

..and, if you are looking for a great burger, etc on a weekday, head over to District 7:

It's a short taxi ride from the Hilton.
