Rosen Centre Hotel
Ranked #137 of 342 Hotels in Orlando
Reviewed October 28, 2007

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.

Stayed 6 nights for a conference held at this hotel. I was upgraded to a top floor room by the conference host (with privileges to use a VIP lounge). While one might presume this would be one of the best rooms in the hotel, it was not impressive. The furnishings were on the old side and there were minor problems (one of the phones not working, a sink stopper that was stuck, and a bathroom light that took 30-60 seconds to turn on). The _very_ poor internet connection was a major disappointment. They charge $10 per night (which was waived for our conference). But it never worked reliably, was unclear how to navigate through the menus to get the service started, and was very slow at times. This was most disappointing for a business trip. I called the number they gave to handle internet problems. They helped, but the service was unreliable (and unusable) within 12 hours. On the other hand, the bed was comfortable for me, the view was great, and people did to try to help. However the non-working phone was never fixed and the internet problems persisted all through the week, making accessing the internet in the room very difficult and frustrating. This hotel does not have technically competent help. The working table is tiny and the wicker chair requires a pillow as a cushion.

Just returned from a week in the Rosen centre. More than happy, all staff most pleasent and helpful, prices of food less than expected, excellent maid service. Large clean open areas, pool wonderful. Only negatives, lighting in room a little poor, would have liked a brighter main light instead of table lamps, rooms clean, large but basic. Would definately stay here again.

Gorgeous hotel couldn't of asked for more. We stayed here last year and i hadn't posted a reveiw but after seeing some of the bad reveiws i wanted to put my thoughts down.

This hotel really is lovely. The pool was warm and clean with plenty of sun loungers and always stacks of clean pool towels. Staff frequently came out and tidied up. The hot tubs are fantastc. You could near enough guarentee you would get one to yourself. They were so warm and just what you need after a long day at the parks.

The restraunts and Deli and good value for money with plenty of choice for whatever you fancy. The Deli did the most tasty hot dog!!!

The rooms are clean and the bed very comfy. The air conditioning was very good and not as noisy as some describe. Maids came and cleaned every day and did a really good job. On our last day we left some things in the room, the maid chased up to us with the things. The staff were very good and dealt with any questions ASAP.

The location is also brilliant, you aren't right in the main strip but at what i call the nicer end of I Drive. The main strip is in easy walking distance though.
I would reccomend this hotel to anyone.......We are CERTAINLY going again.

I had booked this hotel a year in advance, from looking at the reviews I became a bit worried as last year my family and I stayed in the Best western movieland, which was a total night mare, but how wrong you could be. My family and I stayed for three weeks in August 07, this hotel reach our expectations by far.

I don’t know where these people got there ideas from but the Rosen centre was by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in orlando. The pool is large, and very clean it was also very quiet and relaxing….. The rooms are spacious and clean. The maids came early every morning, if your wish was not to be disturbed all you had to do, was put a privacy notice on the door, maids would call back at a later time…… towels changed every day. The beds were nice and comfy. The view from the 15th floor was out of this world. We could see the length of international drive…… the landing was elegantly decorated with a display of flowers on the table…lifts did have a bit of noise coming from them but, it didn’t disturb any sleep…….i suppose that depends on which part of the hotel you had your room…….

The lobby, reception and bar are all incredible. What a wonderful deli for great food or just a coffee. We even got to try out the gym; it was small but enough machines in there to do that work out…. Also a great tennis court……….The staff couldn’t do enough for you, which made the whole stay even better.
We would defiantly return to this hotel. I would recommend it to anyone……

This huge hotel was probably within the modest price range of the convention I am attending. It is not lavish, but it is quiet and acceptable in all areas. The "convention food" was actually better than average. Also, there are several restaurant choices, including a deli/take-out (salads/sandwiches/pizza/wine/snacks) that is open 24-7. The pool is huge. The rooms are nice size with average/basic appointments, but they are definitely clean. The lamps in the rooms are very very dim. Surprisingly, you have to pay for Internet service (wired), but it is not a ridiculous amount. The self-park lot/garage is a very, very long way from the lobby. The staff is pleasant. Unless you are expecting something special, you will not be disappointed with this basic hotel.

I stayed here for two nights for a convention being held at the hotel.

Lets start with the positive. The staff was friendly, the a/c in the room worked well, pool was nice and the conferance facility was excellent.

However I won't stay here again. The beds are HARD as a rock and were very uncomfortable!! When we checked into our room we had no t.v. or internet service....over 7 hrs later (after midnight) and two techs later we finally had both. Then we learned that it cost $10.00 a day for "basic" internet service!! There was also no wi-fi anywhere in the hotel! For a "convention" hotel catering to the business traveler I found this hard to believe. The lighting in the room was also very low...it was very hard to do any work after dark as the poor lighting caused eye strain. The rooms were just average (like a days inn). Any Hampton Inn I have stayed at was better than here. I will not stay here again!
