The Rosen Centre Hotel counts a huge pool, five 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 five-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 two relaxing whirlpool baths.
And with five 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.

Location is the highlight
I stayed here for a week while attending a conference at the convention center. The best part is that it is across the street from the convention center. You can't beat the convenience. Also I had no issues with the Wi-Fi at the hotel and found the complimentary service to meet my needs. The rooms are dark and very standard. Although the hotel says it was recently renovated, I did not find that to be true. It certainly seemed quite used and the pillows barely had stuffing left. Additionally I was in shock that they charged for use of the gym facilities. Overall I would not stay if I returned for a personal trip, it is adequate for business meetings which require close proximity to the convention center.More

It started with about a 10 minute wait to get into the parking garage area. The staff were checking ID's and reservations which caused a line of people. We had to wait in line several times when coming and going from the hotel. Upon our long trek from the parking garage ($15 daily fee) we arrivad at the check in desk and found that our request for adjoining rooms couldn't be accommodated. The clerk said she could get us rooms "right beside each other." When we lugged our 3 kids and all of our luggage up to the 8th floor only to find out that our rooms were actually around the corner from each other. We went back downstairs and were again assigned two rooms "right beside each other". Again we drag our 3 kids and luggage up to the 8th floor. The rooms were again not right beside each other. They were on the same side of the hallway but were seperated by about two feet of wall and not side by side as we requested. I definately feel that when you book on a site like Expedia or Priceline, you get discount service. If do think if we booked directly through the hotel and paid full price we would have been accommodated with no problem. The hotel is not bad by any means but I don't think fully served it's purpose for our family. It would probably be better suited for guests with business needs as it is right across the street from the Convention Center. I've stayed at very nice hotels so the money isn't the issue, it's more about the value and I just don't think you get as much for your money here. The room was average, small, and kind of cheesy. It's definately not high end or modern. The beds were not what you'd expect from a 4 star hotel-just average. You don't even get a robe. Definately not a 4-star experience. I noticed there was mold behind the toilet tank. The faucet in the tub leaked for hours after you turned it off. There are granite counter tops in the room but the granite piece on top of the air conditioning unit was cracked in one of our rooms. There was also a lot of traffic and noise in the hallways after midnight that woke both me and my husband up. The kids liked the store in the hotel that sold pizza and icecream and the pool which was large enough to not feel crowded. There was a gentleman playing steel drums and singing poolside by the bar which was a nice touch. Again, the hotel wasn't bad but I won't be staying there again and definately won't be booking any more rooms through Priceline.More
The pool bar and grill was our favorite hang out
Of all the meals we had while in orlando for 5 nights, the Rosen Centre Pool bar and grill was as good as anywhere else we went in town. Don't pass it up thinking there are better options elsewhere, its worth checking out for one night. We took the advice of TA contributors and got a room on the 21st floor. We had some wonderful views and a king size bed. We ended up with a wheelchair accessable room so the bathroom included a very low sink and no door on the shower. The result was very little counter space and not enough places to hang up wet towels so they ended up on the floor. I don't have many gripes about the Rosen Centre. In general it was a nice hotel, quiet and clean. The gym cost $15 per room for our visit but it was a very nice faciltiy. If you call housekeeping they will bring you bath robes. The housekeeping was odd. They didn't leave us any soap or shampoo until we asked and then they left us like 5 bars. They also didn't give us a bath mat. The A/C system in our room was kind of loud and it took a while to figure out. It ran too cold or too hot. that's one area that needs some updating. All in all I would go back there during the next convention event I attend.More

Very convenient location
Attended a convention and stayed at the Rosen. It is very convenient to the Orlando Convention Center. Check in was friendly and quick. The room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant handled large crowds for breakfast and the food was good. Overall, this was a positive experience.More
Well maintained, beautiful hotel
Had a conference in Orlando. Stayed at the Rosen Centre was very pleased with every aspect. Clean, updated rooms. Varity of dining options. Only complaint was you have to pay to use the business center. At least when I was there you did. More
