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.
ALL I can say is this hotel is more than accommodating...
its big.. comfortable and has everything you need to relax after a long day at the parks or at the convention center.
There are numerous cars parked right out front if u need a ride anywhere.. of course it will cost you..
we opted to just ride the I tolley for 2 $ which was right out front of the hotel to wet and wild and take the short 3/4 mile walk to Universal to save money.. Yes it can be done.. the last day it was raining.. and we hailed a cab at the park exit back to the hotel for a fare of 13.20$
There is an awesome Bar in the hotel numerous restaurants. coffee shops eve a deli
we opted again to walk 2 doors down to Dennys for breaksfast and saved even a bit more money
they had rental cars on site as well
the room was comfortable..
the pool looked great
we felt very secure..
and were VERY Happy with our stay.More

This is a convention hotel but we got such an amazingly cheap deal (obviously no conventions) that we would have been mad to turn it down.
1) Great position on International Drive.
2) Rooms as you would expect for a high quality hotel.
3) Due to the length of stay Rollaway bed and Parking was complimentary. Brilliant - thank you!!
1) Big swimming pool
2) Very reasonably priced shop that serves Pizza and Subs as well.
3) Starbucks coffee :-)
4) Room kept clean.
5) Great response time and friendly chap when our 11 year old locked the safe but forgot the number he locked it with 5 mins after getting in room.
We really had no reason to complain about anything.
Things to Consider
Sure the walk through the hotel to the car park is quite long but it's not an issue unless you are incredibly lazy!!
For us as a family the pool area lacked a bit of atmosphere as there weren't many other kids around. Kids were disappointed with this aspect but its not the hotels fault. Probably better hotels to stay in for families but only from an atmosphere perspective.
Would definitely stay again if kids were older but probably not until then.More

Getting nickel and dimed at the Rosen Centre Hotel
I booked this through hotwire. On arrival, there was a line at 10 p.m. a long wait. the room was okay. nice view. the services poor. I wanted to copy some forms in business center, there is a charge for even 6 minutes. even 2 star hotels allow you use of the business center with no charge for the computer.
room service prices were more than on the preorder form that you hang on the door for breakfast. the preorder form says $12.95 for The Club, which includes fresh juice choice of breakfast meats, eggs, bread and choice of drinks, such as coffee, hot chocolate etc.
I ordered because I had not placed this on the door handle outside the night before. My bill not including juice ( that was extra because I had not placed this outside my door, coffee was extra also which i did order). my bill including all the addons was over 25 dollars. what is wrong with this picture.
using business center for fedex cost me ten dollars, they provided me a box.
there was a band playing near the pool, I could hear it at 9 at night.
I will never stay here again. what a poor excuse for a 4 star hotel.More

When can we go back
I am in love with this hotel. The minute my family and I left my first question was when can we go back. The pool is absolutely amazing and I (as a ten year old) have very high expectations. Also room service is fast and amazing! But mt favorite thing of all is that they allow dogs in the hotel. This hotel is amazing and I reccomend to all people that are not allergic to dogs. :-)More

I booked this hotel on Hotwire. I was looking for a place near the convention centre. $60 a night for one of the nicest rooms I have ever stayed in. I only slept hthere so I don't know anything about the food but there are so many places to eat on International Drive it didn't matter. I did have ribs at the bar and they were excellent. Room was immaculate and express elevators to the top floors where I was. Only drawback is parking was $15 a night so I parked across the road in the restaurant car park. I will be back if I ever come to the convention centre. It was also the closest hotel to the South Hall where I was going.More
