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.
We have stayed at the Rosen centre for 2 weeks (16th-30th Oct) and had the best time!
Close to Universal, Disney, Seaworld, all the yummiest restaurants (carrabbas and charley's steak house recommended!) and shopping centres on international drive; this hotel is ideally located. No need to get a car for the full two weeks as the itrolley is all you really need (17 dollars for 14 days) and the hotel arrange Disney transport for 17 dollars return.
We had perfect weather for the duration of our stay and the pool area is great. The staff are brilliant and will always help. The house keeping staff are so friendly and the vacation desk staff next to the coffee stand are an amazing help.
Definitely consider this hotel when staying in Orlando!! More
Great place, but pricy
i stayed here for 5 days during a recent conference. It is very close to the West end of the Orange County Conference Center. This made the room very easy for walking back and forth. The room was very basic, nothing special. It had a small fridge, but a microwave would have been nice for warming up leftovers.
I ate at the Pizza/deli restaurant and the food was cheaper than the conference center and tasted good. I had little contact with staff at the hotel after checking in, but found everyone helpful and nice. I would certainly recommend the Rosen "chain" as I am impressed how well they take care of their employees. More
Convenient for OC Convention Center
This is a nice property located across the street from the West Pavilion of the orange county convention center. There is another Rosen property adjacent to the east pavilion. The hotel has most of what you would expect from a fairly high priced property. The property has a large nice pool area, excellent workout area, good beds, excellent desk and housekeeping staff, decent food service and a good Wi-Fi. It is also convenient to a Walgreens and several decent restaurants.
The one sketchy thing about this property is that you can't really get a cab unless you call it yourself. The hotel has private car service waiting at the front of the hotel, but these are not cabs with meters. These are very high-priced private car service drivers. If you need to show up somewhere in a shiny black SUV or a black Lincoln town car, then this probably won't bother you. But if you just need to get to the airport, you will pay a lot more and not get there any quicker.More

GREAT HOTEL CLOSE TO EVERYTHING
This is a great hotel in Orlando. The hotel is not far from everything you need a short ride to Universal Studios as well as shopping at the near by pointe. Millers bar down the road is also great when in the middle of shopping. There is loads near by including a Mcdonalds and a Walgreens as well for anything you might of forgotton.
Hotel is lovely pool area is clean and quite a few beds as well for people. The hotel rooms are modern and American and the toiletries that are free in the room are excellent.
The deli inside the hotel is also excellent and can get some delicious food espeically when in a rush.
Nice grounds, but I expected more...
We came for a large conference (with my spouse) and our room had two beds (asked for a king). We stayed the first night there after we were told a king would be available the next day. We packed up our room with the double bed and had the staff take our luggage to the new room with the king bed...only to find out it was a smaller room without a tub. The front desk agreed to switch our room back to another room (with two beds). The third room was supposed to have been cleaned but there were still items in the room indicating housekeeping had not done a very good job. There were dirty bar glasses on the table, a courtesy packaged of toothpaste opened left near the sink, the toilet seat was up, a small amount of trash still in the trash can, the toilet paper roll was down to a few squares. The bell staff called to service the room, but I was assured it was cleaned. Today, as I write this review, it's almost 3 pm and I have not seen housekeeping.
Great pool, but not staff to service you. Great bar but way understaffed. Food in the dinning room was good but not that hot. Disappointed for the price.More
