I stayed here while attending a conference but am familiar with the Disney area.
The hotel is located just across the street from the Downtown Disney area. There is a walkway to the street and a short walk from there to the main area but most people will probably drive. The rest of the Disney area is accessible by driving or via the Disney bus system which stop at Downtown Disney all day long.
The hotel used AT&T for internet and this was included in a resort fee. I did have problems connecting one evening and called the 800 number and they weren't able to resolve it but said it should be working by morning. It wasn't working in the morning but another call got a quick result.
The hotel was built in the 1980's and did show a bit of wear. In my room, the entry door did not close on its own. I happened to be riding in the elevator with a security guard and mentioned it and he said it common. There was more than one occasion when I had been in the room awhile before realizing that it was still open. The sliding door to the balcony took a lot of effort to open/close.
The area is convenient to both Disney and a number of restaurants and shops in addition to Downtown Disney although at over a mile, further than most people will want to walk.
The hotel has a pools, game room and even a Disney store.
