I'm trying to get a 'show desktop' shortcut to work, so I'm using 'hide all windows' shortcut to show the desktop. But after it hides the windows, I can no longer alt-tab through them, and I have to manually click on the unity bar to get back.

I would like alt-tab to switch through all of the applications open in my current workspace (including hidden ones)

From what I can infer, I think you have configured in such a way that minimized windows will not show in the application switcher.

Install compizconfig-settings-manager Install compizconfig-settings-manager and go to Ubuntu Unity plugin:

Ubuntu unity plugin

Navigate to switcher tab and check the option Show minimized windows in switcher.

Alt-tab setting
