The Amtrak Station is an Intermodel one which Greyhound,TRE and the Local Buses share. Plenty of cabs available as is Uber and Lyft if the weather turns nasty, or you just don't fell like walking.

google "Molly the Trolley" It is free, and I believe it covers the intermodal and the hotel......

I forgot all about Molly! Yeah, it does go right by there - but according to the most recent online brochure (Aug 2017) it's not free anymore, it says it's 2 bucks. Which I can live with.

I did not realize they started charging...sorry but it does fit the bill service wise....

You'll have the typical bus crowd (Greyhound and local transit) in and around the station but security is quick to roust out anyone that even looks like they may cause trouble. You will enjoy a very safe walk for sure.

I have a chance to take a later, cheaper ride to FTW but it gets there at 8:30, which is almost an hour after sunset, not to mention the station says it closes at 6PM; I don't know, but I would think that changes the equation dramatically. So I think I'll stick to the earlier ride. Got my hat and sunscreen handy if I'm up to the walk! Thanks again, all.
