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.

well, i stayed here the last week of Feb 2015. in a double room for 4 nights. staff were very friendly, the room has everithing you need, TV, Wifi, small Fridge, confortable beds, etc. i was able to swim at the pool, to get some food at the store and even to have a drink at the lobby bar. besides staying at a 5star hotel, location is another quality, located in the middle of the international drive, great of luxurious restaurants and places and just 10mins away from Universal Studios and Shopping Mall. so, if you can afford it, TAKE THIS ONE NOW!!More

Can't go far wrong.
This is your typical US chain hotel. If you are a business traveller you will understand - lavish architraves adorn the room, ornate lamps and columns etc. etc. The bed was comfy and the sleep was good. This isn't a new hotel but it clean and comfy. Our room is $235 USD per night which I think is expensive but not unusual for the location. My air conditioning controller is malfuctioning and trying to drop the temperature to sub zero but I can live with that. I got the room on the quite side with a great view of the air conditioning units. It is what it is and I think Mr Rosen does a fine job.More

Ruined Our Entire Trip!! BUYER BEWARE
We booked rooms in this hotel MONTHS before arriving, called a few days before our arrival to RE-confirm our accommodations, and to request adjoining room with an associate that was also staying there. After traveling all night, working the entire next day, I went to check-in and was told "sorry, you're being bumped to another hotel. You booked through a third party company (i.e. Travelocity, Orbitz, Priceline - take note!) and we don't have to honor those reservations." I was stunned! We ultimately had to pay hundreds of dollars in extra costs as a result of having our plans, appointments and hotel room expectations turned upside-down. The manager even asked that I not get upset! Imagine that. Not get upset after booking, paying for, and confirming a hotel room that wasn't made available as they confirmed earlier. The manager said they overbook all the time and it's their standard practice because they expect that some people will cancel or not show up. Buyer beware, you're confirmations mean nothing and this hotel smugly boots you out when the need arises and it works for THEM.More

Harry's Pool Bar
On the first night that we visited this bar within the Hotel, there was a steel band playing by the pool area, which made for a really good hip vibe. The band were very good and added just a finishing touch to our drink, listening to a live band, rather that piped out music from speakers. The bar itself resembles a beachside bar, you can either sit inside in the air con, or sit outside underneath an awning by the pool. They also serve food, which again can be eaten inside or out, this looked very nice and smelt great. You can watch the chefs preparing and cooking the food. We ordered a 2 pints of Bud Light and 2 cocktails, a Calypso and a Martini based cocktail all for $36.17.More

1 Night stay then charged $900+ a week later
Booked a room thru Priceline the day I was set to arrive. All billing went thru Priceline and my credit card reflected this charge. When I checked in, I gave the front desk my credit card for incidentals (as is normal when checking in). Checked-in approximately 10pm and was leaving the next day. Next morning, woken up by housekeeping at 8:50am. Checkout is 11am. I hadn't put a do not disturb on the door as I've never had to prior to 9am. Activated the do not disturb and housekeeping knocked again at 10:15. Basically making me feel rushed to get out the door of a room I had paid for. When I checked in, I confirmed with the front desk that I did not need to come back down to check out as they had express checkout. So I left, dropped my keys in the slot and was on my way. Now, a week later, I look at my credit card statement and there is a $920 charge from the Rosen Centre Hotel. Naturally, this came as a shock to me as I stayed in this hotel less than 12 hours, had booked and paid thru Priceline and had zero incidentals at the hotel. First thing I do is call the hotel. Person at the front desk looks at my account and says they aren't showing any charges so it isn't on their end. I explain that, no, this is on their end as the charge is from the Rosen Centre Hotel. She then states billing and credit card processing isn't open today (Saturday) and therefore I won't get a response until Monday. I then ask for a manager. The front desk manager then comes on the line. I explain the situation. She then repeats what the front desk person told me. I again explain that this is unacceptable and I need some resolution. She then states I should take this up with my bank and simply dispute the charge. She also said that she is just the front desk and they do not deal with credit cards. This shocked me as you cannot check into a hotel without a credit card on file and they are responsible for all charges. She said she would take my number down and email the credit card and billing department for a callback on Monday. I then ask for her manager. She said she is the manager. When pressed, she said she had another manager who was in the hotel. She said she would have him call me back. I asked to hold. She was reluctant and then put me on a brief hold. She came back and said he was not available and he will call me back. Basically, I got nowhere with the hotel outside of "call your bank and dispute the charge". So I then got to spend the next 45 minutes on the phone with my bank going to various departments to cancel my credit card as I'm now concerned it was compromised thru Rosen Centre and then wait for the fraud department. Overall, I would not recommend this hotel due to extremely poor customer service. Rooms were standard for what they were. Housekeeping was pushy and made you feel like you had to be out.More
