The Rosen Centre Hotel counts a huge pool, 5 restaurants, and a spa among its drawcards. Plus, it’s right in the middle of International Drive.
This place is seriously big, but size isn’t everything – it also has a great location on International Drive. Pointe Orlando’s complex of bars, shops, and restaurants is a 5-minute drive down the road, and thanks to a nearby shuttle service, the parks are within reach, too. Universal Studios Florida® is 10 minutes away, while Disney clocks in at a 20-minute drive.
Back at the hotel, there’s a big pool surrounded by palm trees and sunloungers. It has a laid-back vibe, and 2 relaxing whirlpool baths.
And with 5 restaurants, foodies will be spoiled for choice. Local specialities like oak-smoked scallops sizzle at the fish à la carte, while families prefer the buffet restaurant with its big booths. The new Caribbean and Cuban restaurant, called Harry's, can be found poolside. And there’s even a sushi bar, where guests can eat sweet shrimp sashimi and sip on a cocktail.
To top it all off, there’s a luxurious spa that pampers guests with reflexology, aromatherapy, and hot stone massages.
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.
Its been eighteen months since my wife and I had a holiday so we booked through thomson a trip to Orlando.We liked the reviews on the Rosen Centre hotel so thought we would have a crack at it.First of all the location is great.Its just a few minutes walk from a great selection of shops and restaurants.The staff are very accommodating and nothing is too much trouble.
We tried most of the restaurants in the hotel itself and the food was great.
The pool area was stunning and several nights a week there was live entertainment so imagine enjoying a cocktail watching the sunset listening to fantastic music.
The rooms were clean and we had a breathtaking view of the orlando skyline at night.
I thought I would be a bit cheeky before we left and asked if the hotel could offer us a deal on the parking as $15 a night adds up over two weeks,so imagine my surprise when we got there and we were told there will be no charge for our parking for the whole time we were there.
I cant praise the Rosen centre hotel enough for our stay.It was truly the holiday of a lifetime and I hope we can go back someday.More
Great stay and conveinent location
This place is great. The rooms are clean and the staff was super nice. they have lots and lots of selections of resturants in the building. It was super close to all the shopping and theme parks i waanted to go to. Just be aware the self arking in the back is a long walk to the lobby. This place in enormus! I was so tired one night i just didnt have the energy to walk that far so I jsut paid for valet. The valet people were so nice. The only reason I cannot give 5 stars was because of the soap gave me an irritation on my skin, like it was to abrasive so i would suggest having your own soap. But other than than just great!!More

its location near the Convention center is ideal, but you feel the hotel is ageing and not much is being done to upgrade the standard.
The door are thin so the room is noisy from any noise coming from the corridor.
The aor conditioning sysyem is a large unit inside the room, blowing air loudly so it is impossible to sleep with it ON.
The bed is soft as if the mattress was out of shape after too many years of service, and the pillows are big and soft too.
Hopefully the staff is good and providing a good service.More

BEST VACATION EVER
We stayed at the Rosen Center on International Drive, Orlando FL from Oct 8 thru 13. We had stayed at the Rosen Shingle Creek Inn two years ago. Beautiful hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We were close enough to Disney and Sea World. Parking is not free unless you book it thru certain sites which was the case our first time there. We did the valet parking this trip and it was well worth it. Didn't mind paying a little more. Would go back again and recommend it to our friends and family.More

Great stay again
Just got back from our 2 weeks at the Rosen Centre and we have had another great stay. When we booked the holiday we asked for a high room overlooking the pool as you can also see the parks. We were please that when we got there they gave us a great room. 21st floor with a great view of SeaWorld, Epcot etc. We did have a bit of a problem the end of the 1st week were they had to do work around the pool area. We could not use the pool or pool area for a few days. I asked at the front desk if we could use the Rosen Plaza and we were told that they were having the same work done there. The Manager came down to see me to explain what was happening and said that he could send us in a taxi to Shingle Creek just a few minutes away if we would like that free of charge. We agreed to that. Shingle Creek to very nice and big. The manager was very professional the way he handled the situation and couldn't do enough to help us.
The hotel is always very clean with very helpful staff from the ladies who clean the rooms, staff in the shop right up to management.
One of the reasons I like this hotel is that it is used by Americans using the Convention Centres. We like a hotel were the locals use.
I look forward to staying at the Rosen Centre again next year.
Thanks for a great stay.More
