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.
My stay at the hotel was a typical visit. The rooms were a tad smaller than I expected and they had an older hotel feel to them. I was most impressed after my stay. After I had flown back home, I realized that I had left two items locked in the room safe. I called security and they went to the room to check it out. They opened the safe, found my items and promptly shipped them to me. Thank you so much for being a person of integrity! I will stay here again!More
Went for a conference
Nice property. Went to check-in and was immediately given a room. I had fractured my foot, so they accommodated me with a room closest to the conference center. Room was clean and was cleaned while I was attending the conference everyday. The gym is pretty nice, but had to pay $15 to use it. That is a pet peeve of mine with hotels, it should be included. The pool was nice with plenty of chairs and towels available. A variety of places to eat within the hotel, with varying prices, which was also nice. However, if you want to venture out, you could walk about a mile and be close to tons of shopping and additional restaurants.More

Very Nice - Convenient
I typically don't stay at hotels that are "no-name" locations. I was booked here as part of a company meeting. This hotel is pretty convenient to everything. The rooms are nice and above average. The pricing is reasonable. The proximity of the hotel to the Orlando Convention center is great (actually a walkway that connects the hotel to the center). Also, it is close to tons of restaurants and even attractions like Universal Studios. If you have a business meeting or are attending a convention, it would be a great place to bring the family along - there would be plenty for them to do during the day. Also, the food choices are very good in the hotel and there are locations very close - even a Walgreens and McD's right next door in case you forget something or need some late-night snacks.More

Was in Orlando for 6 nights on business stayed at the Rosen Centre. Great place to stay, connected to the convention center, centrally located to Universal Studios, Point Place shopping and restaurants.
All the food was wonderful, ate there most of the week, The new pool bar Harry's makes you feel like you are on vacation, even during a hectic work week.
Rooms clean and good size.More

This hotel is ok. That is pretty much it. There are plenty of other hotels in the area that would be more dynamic. The only reason I would stay here is if I was going to a convention.
The restaurants are "ho-hum." No big deal. $15 for the entire stay to workout in the gym, which wasn't any different or better than any free hotel gym I've used before. Not a fan of that. They have Free Wi-Fi, but I couldn't open anything on my phone unless I turned off the hotel wi-fi, then I could use it great.
You can find better for sure.More
