The Rosen Centre Hotel counts a huge pool, six restaurants, and a spa among its drawcards. Plus, it’s right in the middle of International Drive.
Rosen Centre Hotel has a great location on International Drive. A 10-minute ride on the free shuttle bus gets you to Universal Orlando® Resort, SeaWorld and Wet ‘n’ Wild. And Walt Disney World is within easy reach, a 15 minute-drive away.
The hotel itself is really big. It’s got a pool to match, six restaurants and a couple of bars. Venture out and you’re 10 minutes’ walk away from a large family entertainment complex.
Open daily from 5.30pm, this Everglades-themed restaurant has local 'Cracker' delicacies on offer such as Alligator Chowder and Florida Rock Shrimp. There are international favourites like grilled Angus steak, plantain-stuffed chicken and handmade butternut squash pasta on the menu too.
stayed here for 3 weeks and the staff were excellent and the room spotless. This is a huge Hotel and they are dealing with many people yet any inquiry was dealt with promptly and they made me feel very special and as if I was the only guest. Loved it and the closeness to all amenities cant faultMore

The Rosen Center Hotel
This place is huge. Many places to grab something to eat. Lots of elevators and a walkway directly into the convention center. The rooms could use better lighting but are spacious and bed was comfortable. Many places to eat nearby and a Walgreens across the street. This was a business trip paid for by my employer but upon check out I was charged $3.18 for Orange County Convention Center fee that I had to pay for out of pocket.More

Just Ok, AC in room was horrible, not my first choice
Typical large convention hotel. Decent place, but after seeing the Hyatt and Hilton that are close by also to the convention center I would have preferred one of those. I spent time in the fitness facility. It has a lot of equipment and was a decent place to work out. Had dinner at the fine dining restaurant, prices were high and it was just Ok, had the thai curry seafood, I do not recommend it. Overall the room was clean and the facility was clean, but just like I read from other travelers the air conditioning system in the room is horrible. It was soo cold not matter what I did that I am now going home a little sick from sinus issues. It's either tremendously cold or I have to keep it off. The thing is sooooo loud, its like having an evinrude boat motor by your head. There's also some kind of occupancy sensor control thing it appears for it on the wall, and I have not figured that out.More
I wish other people's reviews had contained the information below because I definitely would NOT have stayed at this hotel.
Air condition (especially in FL) is a deal breaker for me.
I checked in and noticed it was hot in the room even though it was set to 65 and the fan was "auto low". You can't change the fan to high or always on or anything. I left and came back and it was getting colder so.. yay. Then I left and came back and it was hot again!
I called the front desk and said my AC is obviously not working right. He said he would send someone to look at it and never did. :(
It then worked fine the first day. After that... NO.
Apparently, the hotel has MOTION SENSOR air condition units. They CUT OFF after you leave the room for a few hours and worse of all??? They cut off in the MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT and sweat you out. I tried throwing stuff to turn on the sensor but the only wait to get the AC to turn back on was to open the door.. and then it only lasted 30-45 minutes.
I had terrible sleep. I got woken up around 2 am because the noise when it kicks off is loud... and then woken up again in a pool of sweat. EVERY NIGHT FOR 4 nights.
Also, I was in town for the trade show... walking around all day long and then back across the street in 90 degree weather to come back to a room at that was 80 degrees is NOT COOL. Took at least 1 hour to cool back down.. and never was 65 degrees (I DO like to freeze myself out and think I should have this option!)
Overall, it's a dealbreaker for me. Any other nice things I could say about the hotel were ruined by the too hot room and the restless nights. Also, the uncaring response from the front desk. I assume they hear the complaints all the time,.More

Seemingly nice hotel, until I left with bed bug bites all over my body. Reported this to a manager, and did not even receive an apology. I would not recommend this hotel. I understand that hotels have these problems sometimes, but how they handle it really speaks to their level of customer service. I was very disappointed by how Rosen Centre management handled my problem.More
