I have just returned from the Rosen Center,Orlando and I can only say it is one of the best hotels that I've stayed at.
I booked this as a wedding/honeymoon hotel over 12 months ago,so when I read the negative reviews I was understandably concerned.
The negative reviewers must have stayed at a totally different hotel because it just wasn't how they described it.
We had a lovely,fairly large pool view room.The bathroom was adequate for our needs,(my hubby moaned that there was no shaving mirror),but overall it was spotlessly clean with lovely fluffy
towels and no sign of mould anywhere.
The two double beds were clean and comfy and the bedding,carpets and furniture were of an excellent quality.
Perhaps I was lucky enough to stay in one of the better rooms but I really couldn't fault it.
The pool was lovely,as were the 2 hot tubs which were all well maintained every day.As this hotel primarily caters for the convention centre,due to it's close proximity,the swimming pool was deserted most days.
There are excellent restaurants,a great deli (staff really nice,Shirley the cashier in particular)and a really good atmosphere overall.
As a travel agent I would not hesitate to send my clients to this hotel and I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Orlando.

  • Liked — good location & excellent facilities
  • Disliked — nothing
  • Tips/Secrets — use the swimming pool on weekdays,you'll have it all to yourself!!

In general the Rosen Centre is a good quality hotel. My room was lovely.. modern, clean & spacious, with LCD tv on the wall & a pool view. It's location on International Drive is perfect for all the florida attractions inc sea world, disney, wet & wild & Universal studious. Fantastic restaurants within a 10 min walk. The Deli at the hotel was great for breakfast and lunch, large choice of drinks & hot & cold food available at very reasonabe prices. The pool area is very nice by day, however during the evening we liked to sit outside at the tables by the pool. We were horrified to see rats running around on several occassions!! We did notify the hotel but were not aware anything was done. One couple told us they had seen a snake in the pool the previous week.

I stay in many hotels all around the world and have no idea how anyone could ever rate this as more than a 1 star hotel...This is a very old and dated hotel, the only part of the hotel that is decent is the lobby, this is both the Rosen Plaza and the Rosen Center..

The rooms are stale, moldy, yes mold on the shower curtain, bedspeads and carpets..the airconditioners are window units, they leak water on the carpet and they cycle on and off with a bang....the furniture is the worse mismatch of garbage I have ever seen, nothing matches, its old and beat up..the metal headboard in my room attched to nothing and banged the wall when the bed moved..The pillows are awful and I am sure the beds and bedspreads are 30 years old. You can hear everyone in the halls, there are hardly ant electrical outlets and the bathroom, closet etc are just awfull..

The employees in the bar laugh about the cheap owner of these hotels, claim he is so cheap that you had better mark your towels and they dont change them, just fold them again...Ok I marked my sheets, sure enough they were the same...disgusting....

The buffet restaurant they add 15% !!!! for a buffet, Ok so I guess there is another example of this owner, gets that 15% from everyone and pays the employees little..

The front desk people look nice but what a bunch of idiots, lost my reservation ans several others in our group..also forget reserving a King size bed, wont happen they do not ever guarantee one , even if they promise you one...

Maybe some families like this hotel, gee soft drinks are only a dollar in the machines and the buffet was pretty good, but overall this hotel needs a retro in the worst way. I reported them to the health dept and they are going to follow up on all the mold, many people have reported on other web site respiratory problems after being here, actually my bus partner claimed he had trouble breathing in his room...

I can't believe the reviews stating that this hotel is sub-standard. The hotel is clean, the rooms are clean, and the experience is above average. All personnel encountered were friendly and more than helpful. Plus, for those attending conventions at the Orange County Convention Center, this hotel is one of the closest.

Just got back after another two weeks holiday, stayed July 2005. The hotel was just as good as the first time, friendly staff and excellent facilities. We used the Deli shop for snacks, sandwiches, pizzas and breakfast as well as trying the Cafe Gaugin for breakfast. The breakfast buffet was more expensive than your standard Ponderosa/Golden Corral prices but the quality of the food was in a class of its own. The eggs and sausages actually tasted like ones you get at home.

The pool area was for the majority of the time quiet, you could get a lounger at any time of the day. The hotel is mainly used for conference guests which was ideal for us, we prefer a quieter hotel. There are two jacuzzis which were very relaxing to sit in after a busy day at the parks.

There is a supermarket next door to the hotel which was handy to buy things like toothpaste, drinks, cookies, etc. Though drinks and cookies could be bought from the Deli if you wanted. There is a Denny's and a MacDonald's close by too.

There is a big multi storey car park which is just about 5 minutes walk to the lifts. There was no problem parking.

The rooms were clean and comfortable. Standard two bed room with tv and internet access (which you paid extra for). The rooms were quiet and you felt safe. The beds were comfortable.

Sea World is only about 5 minutes away, whilst Universal and Disney were about 15 minutes away. The hotel is situated at the South end of IDrive which is, in my opinion, the nicer end of IDrive.

Excellent hotel and I would recommend it.
