The weather in Xi'an is as below.

I think that unless you want to spend 2 days on Terracotta, you do not have to live in a hotel there.
Any hotel is very convenient for tourists to visit Terracotta, for most of tourists go there by 306 bus which will take you no more than 40 minutes for single trip.
