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.
