“Nice option near Orlando Convention Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

I am currently staying at the Rosen Centre Hotel which is next to the Orlando Convention Center. I resembles an older Las Vegas hotel, furnishing a little dated, but the rooms are clean with modern flat screen TV. Rooms are large and quiet, seems to have good sound insulation from other rooms. Request a higher floor to take advantage of nice open views of the pool and surrounding area. Similar to a run of the mill Marriott but on a larger scale with plenty of suites to host break out meetings as well as many restaraunts in the hotel (food was average).

I stayed at the Rosen Centre for the Agilysys Insight users conference. Everything about the hotel went smoothly, the rooms were nicely updated, and included nice amenities like in room safes, and small fridges. The banquet food service was very smooth as well, they kept things moving and had nice selections in both their entrees as well as their hors d'oeuvres. The scheduled meals and breaks were always on time which is nice when you have a full day of seminars. We did eat at the Everglades restaurant, which could use an update, the large animal statues of native Florida wildlife, didnt go very well with the $40 steaks on the menu, or the upscale look it has from the lobby area.

I travel around 60 days a year for business/pleasure and would certainly put the Rosen Centre on my short list of Orlando convention hotels worth staying at.

I was in Orlando for three days for business and our meetings were held in the Rosen Centre at their on-site meeting space. This was my second stay at this property, however my last stay was over five years ago.

Overall, the Rosen Centre is a decent upscale business class property, clearly catering to business people and conventioneers. Leisure travelers would also be happy here. One point to be aware of. There is also a “Rosen Plaza” hotel about ¼ mile away on I-Drive operated by the same company. So make sure that you know the difference and end up at the right property when arriving.

Right next door is The Peabody Orlando which is another deluxe business class property that I have stayed at multiple times over the years and it makes a good comparison to the Rosen Centre, especially if you are trying to decide between the two. If the Peabody Orlando is a 9.5, and it is, the Rosen Centre is a solid 8-8.5, which is still very good in my mind and considering the fact the rooms are sometimes ½ the cost of the Peabody the Rosen Centre is a real alternative.

Overall, the Rosen Centre is clean, modern, well kept. The staff seemed friendly and my room was modern, clean, fresh and well appointed. While not the most elaborate, the pool area is nice and should suit most everyone. The lobby bar is a typical large convention hotel lobby bar and should meet most needs. There is an on-site conference and meeting center so lots of business folks are out and about. While I am sure that children are certainly welcome, you don’t see a lot of them.

If budget doesn’t matter, there are few business properties in my opinion that beat The Peabody. But if you are looking for a great alternative with 85% of the same amenities and level of service, and for up to half the cost, the Rosen Centre is a high end business class property worth considering.

Room Tip: They all seem to be fine. Nothing really to see from the higher floors as Central Florida is flat w...

Attended convention at OC CC. Rosen just across the street, very convenient. Bell staff really all the staff most friendly. Room very clean and just updated and done so nicely, no bathtub up to the ceiling redo, all new tilework, tub and flooring. nicely done. could use a few more amenities, like newspaper, etc. If they have a program for loyalty I was not aware of it. But room was nice, good view of city and cc. Bell staff prompt. food service very prompt and food good. Great open late deli-store for all the things you like to have in your room or if you forgot something , medicines, even wines. Also good casual dining and fine dining onsite. Very comfortable environment for families or woman business traveler alike. All my requests were done cheerfully and promptly. Check out their bag program. I checked my US Air always heavy bag , went off to the last day of my convention and then just jumped in town car to airport -great service. I never had to deal with lugging a heavy bag around the whole check out traveling home process. Great unique service! My one suggestions is a few more business amenities and could use more tv channels.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms have good view of convention center and Orlando skyline. Long hallways so if you...

Located right in the midst of restaurants and the hub-bub of International Drive, the Rosen Centre is a great location for food and entertainment choices! Our room was clean and very comfortable. However, the bars in the lobby only had TV's and no music. It would have been nice to return to the hotel for a nightcap with a guitarist, pianist, even recorded music to listen to ... instead of sports on TV. And this was a Friday and Saturday night. The parking fee of $13 per night is fairly high, especially since the parking garage was truly a hike to the lobby My considerate husband dropped me off at the entrance, parked the car, and then returned ten minutes later having had his exercise for the day! The atmosphere is more conducive to conferences and company groups, although my concerns may likely have been shared by those guests as well.

My husband and I came here on dec 10th to 24th 2012 for our honeymoon. We were absolutley thrilled with how good the hotel looked. For us, we would class it as posh, but we didnt feel out of place as there were other holiday makers there, but majority was business people.
The hotel is right on International drive, with a Dennys, Mc donalds, walgreens, and a couple of other restaurants right next to it, and a 5 minute walk to Pointe Orlando where there are tens of restaurants and shops and a cinema etc. . . and all the way down international drive there are so many restaurants and craxy golf etc. The Hotel is also next to the convention centre which is huuuuuge! probably why i would say it is more a business hotel, but it really didnt matter to us. The back of the hotel is very close to and looks over to Sea World and Aquatica. We asked when booking the honeymoon we be put on a high floor. We were put on the 22nd floor, and i believe there were 24floors overall, andwe were overlooking international drive and the rest of florida! Views were amazing! We had two double beds in our room, a dressing area and bathroom. TV was flatscreen and had plenty of channels to choose from. we also had the availablitiy to order films to our room. The room also came with a fridge, coffee machine and a safe which you didnt have to pay extra to use. The staff were very friendly, rooms always tidied and clean to a high standard. the beds were soooo comfortable too.
There were a couple of restaurants in the hotel itself, which we didnt actually use as we were out everynight, but they looked very good. there was also a pool which was quiet.
The bus system was very reasonable. We used the I-ride trolley, this trolley literally just drove up and down international drive from about 7am til about 11pm. We paid $18 dollars each for unlimted use for 2weeks (about £12) and the trolley wasnt on a timetable, you just wait at the stop for it to come, on average every 20min. It was perfect for us as we bought the Orlando Flexi-plus ticket which meant we were using Wet and wild, sea world, aquatica, bucsh gardens, island of adventure and universal studios. The trolley stopped right outside wet and wild, sea world and aquatica, and getting off a certain stop on international was only a 5-10min walk to unversal and island OA, and busch gardens was free oraganised travel to the park as it was an hour away.
We also done discovery cove which is next to sea world, although we got a taxi there as we got there very early and the trolley doesnt stop right in the resort, we only paid about $7/8 to get there, then we got the free shuttle to sea world once we finished there and hopped on the trolley again.
If you do stay here, we were recommended not to use the posh black taxis that wait out the front of the hotel as they dont run on a meter, they charge what they want. You are better off booking a taxi which the hotel were happy to do for us.
Overall we do recommend this hotel, if we were to go again to orlando, we would definitely stay on international drive again and would would consider using this hotel again if the price was right etc... but its always nice to try other places so we'll see! Hope this has been helpful ;)

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor for amazing views! I remember reading in the hotel magazine that you can see Di...

We booked this hotel 7 months in advance (booked in June for January visit). We guaranteed the room with a credit card for late arrival as our flight wasn't arriving until after 5:00 pm. We arrived at the hotel around 7 and were told that our reservation was canceled that day. We were told that check-in time was 3:00 and that they gave us a "grace period" until 4:00. When we showed them the printout with our confirmation number, credit card info, guarantee, etc., they didn't apologize. They just said that they couldn't hold the room past 4:00 and then gave us an $8 cab voucher. The cab driver said something along the lines of "they do that when the hotels are all full and people want rooms for a week". We only booked 3 nights. So, traveler -- beware. We have never had this experience before.
