We stayed at the Rosen Centre for a week-long conference and had a pretty good experience except for the extrordinarily high per night cost ($251 w/tax). The hotel is well-located for the convention center but there appeared to be other options nearby almost as convenient but for less money and closer to more restaurants and entertainment options.
The hotel itself seemed clean with a friendly staff and the rooms were nicely appointed but the internet service is atrocious. It seemed to continuously cut out and the service was not wireless. Another person from our corporation faced the same issues and was actually billed for several seperate attempts to reconnect. When she discovered this and brought it to the front desk's attention, the hotel did remove the additional charges.
One of the nicest features of the hotel is a 24hr. snack bar/deli facility that has a nice selection of food and snacks at a reasonable price. The hotel restaurant was also pretty good. Try the french onion soup.
For transportation to shopping, hotels, and restaurants, there is a trolley (really a bus) service that runs back and forth along International Drive with a stop just outside the hotel. Be careful though when walking to the bus stop or over to the convention center because there is a lack of paved walks from the front of the facility to the street.
No big deal, but I was a little disappointed there was no shoeshine service available.
Rosen Centre is a nice place to stay but the value just isn't there.
