The Rosen Centre Hotel counts a huge pool, six restaurants, and a spa among its drawcards. Plus, it’s right in the middle of International Drive.
Rosen Centre Hotel has a great location on International Drive. A 10-minute ride on the free shuttle bus gets you to Universal Orlando® Resort, SeaWorld and Wet ‘n’ Wild. And Walt Disney World is within easy reach, a 15 minute-drive away.
The hotel itself is really big. It’s got a pool to match, six restaurants and a couple of bars. Venture out and you’re 10 minutes’ walk away from a large family entertainment complex.
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.
As always, it's a great hotel and wonderful place to stay! I would recommend it to anyone especially nice because I had a seminar there the next morning. My room was overlooking the pool and staff is always friendly!More

Perfect Orlando Base!
We've stayed at the Rosen centre around 5 times over the past ten years so I thought it was about time I wrote a review for this fantastic resort! Firstly this place is huge and it's also really well kept. I'm very particular with hotel rooms and the standard rooms are great. Nicely furnished, spacious, with a fridge plus tea & coffee facilities. The bathrooms are small but perfectly adequate and although there are more luxurious hotels you can stay at, as a couple in Orlando (Hilton, Hyatt, Waldorf, Ritz etc) this hotel has many plus points which more than compensate. Don't get me wrong the rooms are great but they don't compare to some of the grander brands. It really depends what you're looking for and how long you are staying - I'm trying to be both constructive and rounded in my opinion! So with regards to the facilities, this is where I think the hotel more than compensates. There is a fantastic shop and deli which is great for snacks, sandwiches and breakfasts. A sushi bar, coffee bar, a couple of great restaurants - one casual and one fine dining, as well as the gorgeous poolside Harry's
Bar. This was a new addition to our visit last year and it was fantastic! Food was wonderful and very reasonably priced. The pool area has had an overhaul too with new furniture and paving - looks amazing - and most nights there was live music or Caribbean steel drum music which felt really tropical! Close your eyes and you could have been in the Bahamas! It never gets that busy either which was nice.
The location of this hotel is also great with a Walgreens, Denny's and Red Lobster just next door. We used the Walgreens a lot for supplies - it sells everything from cereal to flip flops plus it has large pharmacy section so it's very useful.
Pointe Orlando, which has lots of great shops, bars and restaurants, is only a 20 minute walk away and universal studios is a 10-15 min car journey away, Disney is around 30 mins away by car. The hotel also has
a shuttle bus service if you don't have car hire. The foyer is very grand and large and the staff are pleasant. I wouldn't say overly so, but accommodating never the less. There's a real mix of guests from business travellers to couples younger and older and not too many kids I'm pleased to say - It's definitely a more adult resort. The hotel hosts a lot of functions and conferences too so there's always something going on with frequent hustle and bustle. All in all this hotel is the perfect Orlando base with so much to offer at a superb standard. Just shop around to get a good deal if booking direct.
Excellent Stay, Excellent location
There for a conference. Very nice hotel, friendly staff, clean, excellent location. You can catch a Trolly bus right in front of hotel. It rained and was cold so didn't get to swim in the pool but was clean and looked beautiful. I would definitely stay here again.More
Traveling with Tweens
Two night stay December 11-13, 2015.
We had one night booked on Priceline and needed to add an additional night. We arrived and the front desk was able to make accommodations for us in spite of being almost at capacity. We never had to change rooms which was a blessing traveling with two kids.
The room was clean and the mini fridge was perfect for stashing drinks and snacks. We were participating in an event at the Hyatt across the street and ALWAYS felt 100% safe travelling back and forth between properties even after midnight.
The Deli was well stocked with light healthy food in addition to basic convenient store items. We enjoyed seeing Santa on the main floor and interacting with guests of all ages.
The pool bar staff was delightful and attentive. As was Ms. Carol in the spa. She provided an EXCELLENT massage and body scrub. The steam room, changing room, and spa facilities were clean and perfectly stocked.
I was even impressed with valet retrieving only my sunglasses from my car for me when I forgot to take them with me.More

Check-in was fine except only double beds were available, no kings. Room was on 18th floor. Elevators separated by upper/lower floors. No wait problems with elevators. Fast. Self-parking in parking garage in the rear is $15 daily (lengthy walk back to the lobby), valet parking is $20. Hallways seem narrow with low ceilings. Clean though. Room was standard with two double beds. TV was small but worked OK. Refrigerator. Tub shower and toilet separate from single sink area that had a small storage surface. Low ceilings. Everything was clean. Housekeeping responded well to requests. HVAC was the type under the window. Worked OK but was VERY noisy when it kicked on. Work desk with comfortable chair and two 3-prong outlets. Complimentary Ethernet connection Wi-Fi, with option to upgrade speed for additional fee. Have to call for info on using wireless. Complimentary Internet speed seemed fine for Internet use. Curtains were somewhat balky to open/close, and blackout curtains did not stay closed. Main positive for the hotel is that it is directly across the street from the convention center and is on International Drive, a main road with everything you need, including a Dennyâs, Red Lobster, and Walgreen a few minute walk from the hotel.More
