It's probably going to need to be classified as a "hotel" for legal reasons, if anything.
Good point!

But it doesn't have to be marketed as a hotel. It could be marketed as a "lifestyle" like the W. :)

Thinking about it, it really fits the definition of "Resort" more than any of the actual resorts.

Resorts topic in Wikipedia said:
A resort (North American English) is an isolated place, self-contained commercial establishment that tries to provide most of a vacationer's wants, such as food, drink, lodging, sports, entertainment, and shopping, on the premises. The term resort may be used for a hotel property that provides an array of amenities, typically including entertainment and recreational activities.

"New construction for the project will include a two-story building and pavement areas, service areas around the
building, plus landscape berms. The facility will be connected to the DHS park from a bridge over the L-402 Canal.
The new bridge will be close to that of the existing temporary construction bridge over the L-402 canal into the DHS
Crescent surcharge area.

The facility will be connected to the DHS park entrance area from a bridge over
the L-402 Canal. The new bridge will be close to that of the existing temporary construction bridge over the
L-402 canal into the DHS Crescent surcharge area."

The site which cannot be named is claiming this is the entrance pathway to the land. Personally I am a little skeptical of this since it doesn't actually show it going all the way to the land. If they did this they would either have to hide a lot of back stage infrastructure or make this a tunnel.

It feels weird that they would do a walkway instead of some sort of people mover that would feel a little more in universe.

I've overlayed the image onto an overhead image of the area for a better idea of where everything lines up:

Doesn't that seem to suggest that the bridge would be at the other end of the hotel (to be "near" the current temporary construction bridge? What about a bridge here that connects to an area just to the west of the Millennium Falcon attraction? (an area where there doesn't seem to be much currently). WOuld also seem to be the shortest possible connection point between the hotel and Galaxy's Edge (which from an efficiency standpoint, would be ideal):

I also question if the area circled in the image below could be some sort of a station for a system to immersively take guests between the hotel and the park:

The bridge is the one shown in the plans that connects to the parking lot.

Item circled in that last picture is the chiller plant.
