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.

Family holiday booked through Thomson, stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks from 1-15th August 2014. Bedroom was lovely, two double beds, very comfortable with great pillows!! It had a flat screen tv, mini fridge, safe and a coffee perculator (no kettle but you can get hot water without putting in th coffee bag), 5 drawers in main room, wardrobe with shelve and room for shoes (not enough hangers tho but sure if we had asked we would have got more), the bathroom isn't the biggest, but the sink is outside the main bathroom with shelving underneath with a good powerful hairdryer, (don't waste valuable weight in your case with your own dryer) the bathroom has a low bath but still room to partially lie in it, the shower was powerful, there is also a shelve area for your bits and Bob's. Our room was cleaned everyday with new towels great service. Air con is a bit noisy but easy to switch on/off. We were on the 10th floor with great pool views and had an ice maker and drinks machine on each floor. Every odd floor has laundry facilities at $1.75 for both washer and dryer, enough to wash and dry one full load and took approx 45 min to wash and 50min to dry. The room has plenty plug sockets and I took my hair straighteners (British) and they heated just fine. The hotel was busy with conventions and full although we never ever felt that it was full due to the vast space it offers. The pool and spa are fantastic and Harrys Bar was great too, speak to David the waiter as he is a total gentleman and nothing was any trouble. Reds Deli is a fantastic takeaway/shop with great pizza for $10 for a large one! Plenty for 2 adults and 1 teenager. They also sold lovely coffee, and all your snacks, fruit bowls cereal and wine too. We didn't venture in the main restaurant Everglades, but did go into the other one, buffet was lovely and priced ok, wine was dear but that's to be expected in a hotel. Car Park is a few minutes walk through the hotel and you can park in the open car park or garage, we parked always in garage to stop car from being so hot! As we booked through Thomson and was there on holiday we had complimentary parking, so that saved some pennies. But I emailed Erica Hunt just to confirm as Thomson couldn't Confirm it. Just a few minutes walk from the hotel is Walgreens, great wee supermarket that has absoulty everything you need from great cheap booze, food and medical items (contact lens box as I forgot mine!), If your there for a while get a discount card we saved quite a bit every time we shopped there. Around corner from there is Dennys restaurant, good breakfast (enough to share as plates are huge!!!) Good dinners too. This hotel is easy walking distance to pointe Orlando (25min) and is in a great location from all the parks. I would highly recommend this hotel to British tourists looking for that more quality hotel. Nothing negative about this hotel, best hotel I've stayed in yet. Thank you Rosen.More

Walkway to the convention center
We stayed here for a Minecraft minecon exhibit that our kids attended. The hotel is your typical Convention center type hotel. Very big and impersonal. There is however a nice outdoor pool. The main reason to stay here is that you have a direct and easy walkway to the convention center. More

Attended a conference at Orlando Convention Center and stayed here Aug 5-9. Check-in was a breeze, staff very pleasant. I like that there's a Skywalk to Convention Center from hotel. Room was nice and clean, great view of Orlando. Housekeepers were pleasant and friendly. Ate breakfast one morning (egg/cheese croissant, potato cakes & coffee) at Red's Deli and it was good. Ate dinner buffet one night at Cafe Gauguin. I normally do not eat at buffets and will continue that practice. The fish was dry and some of the other items (meats & veggies) were not to my taste. Even the desserts were not to my liking except for the ice cream. The other two items I did like were the salad bar and the mashed potatoes, I could have just eaten those and been completely satisfied. The restaurant staff was very pleasant. Red Lobster, McDonald's & Walgreen's within walking distance. I would stay here again.More

Great Convention Hotel
Just completed a five day convention at Rosen Centre Hotel. Hotel very well set up for conventions which makes it most convenient for those attending. Hotel rooms, convention room/banquet room, breakout meeting rooms, several restaurants, small convenience store all centrally located. You did not need to leave the hotel unless you wanted to. The 24-hour convenience store has a deli/grill area which I used often. Prices were reasonable for the area and the quality of food was good. All hotel staff were most pleasant and willing to assist. My room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. The bed was very comfortable and I slept well at nights. The hotel has a nice pool area but I did not make use of those facilities. Within a short walking distance of the hotel is a Walgreen Drug, Denny's, Red Lobster, McDonalds and IHOP.More

They took good care of us
I was a guest at the Rosen Centre for a week-long conference in August 2014. Transportation to the facility was quick and efficient via the Mears Shuttle. The hotel is approx. 12 miles from the airport and we were there in about a half-hour (ours was the first stop - you may have a different experience). While waiting to check in, one can enjoy a glass of ice water from the stand in front of the guest service counter. My room was on the 20th floor and I enjoyed a sweeping vista of Sea World (even-numbered room). The room was great. Air conditioning was really good, not too loud and kept things nice and cool - so much so that I found myself setting the thermostat to 72 degrees. The bed was very comfortable, and a back ache that I had been suffering was gone by the end of my visit. My accommodations were clean throughout. There was plenty of hot water for showers and pressure was adequate. Wifi was free for our convention attendees as it had been negotiated with the hotel. For a fee we were given the opportunity to upgrade to a higher speed but what was provided gratis met my needs. I ate most of my meals at Cafe Gaugain and Harry's (the deli). Food in the cafe was excellent and the portions were huge. I had the penne pasta one night and couldn't finish it. Our convention planners arranged for a 20% discount in the Cafe and adjacent Everglades Restaurant. I never got to the latter, but the discount was appreciated nonetheless. As good as the food was, sometimes it was nice to go off the reservation and enjoy a meal at Red Lobster, situated behind Walgreens (which also was great to have nearby for those things I neglected to pack). The fitness room at the spa on the first floor was well-equipped and a good value at $15 for unlimited use during my stay. I really appreciated the presence of washers and dryers on the odd-numbered floors near the elevators. It was $1.75 to wash ($3.50 for a larger washer) and $1.75 for an hour of drying time. This was a true value enhancement. The only issue I encountered, and it wasn't a tremendously big deal, but something of which one should be aware, is that they keep it really cool in the hotel. Now I'm from Alaska and I like it cool rather than warm, but even I had to break out the North Face jacket I brought at the last minute so as to achieve a level of comfort. It was espcially cold in our grand ballroom meeting venue. I suppose that, in retrospect, that was a good thing as it kept people awake. We asked to have the temperature raised a little but that request was rejected. So if you will be staying here - be forewarned. As a Hilton Diamond, I had planned on staying at the nearby Doubletree and just walking back and forth every day. But the thought of a ten minute hike in the high heat and humidity prevalent in Florida in August made me change my mind, and I am glad I did. The Rosen Centre was a fine place to stay, and they took good care of our group.More
