Connecting Router to a wireless hotspot

So heres the deal, im moving into an apartment that provides internet via a wireless hotspot (is PW protected and has WPA2 protection). I would like to be able to connect a router to it and then wire my printer, Media server and Roku device to my router.
im guessing I will have to somehow bridge my router to the wireless hotspot. I would like the ability to then broadcast my own wireless network from my router, and have my mobile devices connect only to my router, which is in turn connected to the internet via the hotspot.
anyone recommend a specific router for the job? can use the mfg firmware or be open source firmware, doesnt matter to me.
I currently have a Netgear WNDR3700 and a spare WRT54G with DDWRT.
below is a visual diagram of what i'd like to accomplish
