We stayed at this hotel for a week, my partner was working at an exhibition at the convention centre across the road. The hotel was good, the rooms were clean and the beds were really comfortable. The location is fantastic, right across the road from the Convention Centre, across from a shopping area with lots of great places to eat. There is also lots of public transport available round the hotel with the I-Tram and the local buses.
There is free wifi throughout the hotel however the TV stations are only American, so not good if you need BBC world service like I do. The bar is ok but the restaurant isn't great. I would recommend using the coffee bar and deli for supplies, especially breakfast and lunch.
The hotel also has a great concierge team who can sort out trips and have lots of discount vouchers for attractions and restaurants.
Be careful with the disney shuttle though, it only drops you off in one place and the disney area is enormous and you need to get their internal buses which, when there is traffic, can take over an hour to get from Downtown Disney to the shuttle pick up.
The hotel pool is ok, the sun only hit it from about 9am when we were there and the pool itself felt like it could do with a better cleaning system. They're also building a bridge from the hotel to the convention centre which means the work men look down into the pool area and make the odd comment. It was also really noisy around the pool with the bridge work and the renovations to their gift shop. However there was a band and BBQ on the Saturday we left.
There's also a hotel gym and the club Backstage which is supposed to be good but was closed when we were there.
