“Convenient to the Convention Center”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Hotwire describes it as a 4* hotel on International Drive South. It's really an annex to the Convention Center. The pluses - the rooms are very comfortable and the lobby has a lot of things going on. The negatives - long hike to parking, hot water isn't really and the noise of slamming doors is very disconcerting.

My advice - avoid, unless you want to be at the Convention Center.

This hotel is nice if a little dated. It has a really good location close to all theme parks and walking ditance to International Drive Dining. The pool area is cute and as a family with little kids we appreciated the convenience store fast food option in our rooms after long days at the parks. A word of warning: a lady in the concierge desk told us a couple of half truths in order for us to purchase our Disney Park Tickets from her and earn her comisson.

Stayed here while attending a business meeting in the hotel. Excellent meeting facilities and staff really worked hard to meet our needs. Excellent in-house AV support.

Hotel rooms were clean, up to date, and well equipped. Elevators were sloooow.

The hotel is within walking distance of the Orlando Convention Center and literally dozens or restaurants on International Drive.

The hotel is in a great location! It's within walking distance to Bahama Breeze, Howl at the Moon Piano bar, Senor Frogs, Maggiano's, and many more restaurants. It's also within a short drive to Magic Kingdom and other Disney amusement parks. The pool was nice, the rooms were clean, and the staff was friendly.

Rosen Plaza - have stayed there 3 times now, and have had 3 different rooms. It's a comfortable, above-average hotel with a few quirks, most positive. The good news: restful, traditional decor, comfortable beds, wonderful public spaces, imaginative food options (including a most excellent convenience-store-cafeteria-grill-thingy that is open until the wee hours), and good location for restaurant hopping. The bad news is that the hotel's A/C system seems to have a mind of its own; I'm pretty sure it's hooked up to a motion detector to prevent its running when a person is out of the room. Problem is, if you are not a restless sleeper it can turn itself off,too. I have to have a very cool room at night or I don't sleep well, and this problem has kept me from getting restful sleep. Sure, the room will cool down fairly quickly after you start moving again, but the constant cycle of warm-up and cool-down is hellish for me. Also, the A/C system doesn't seem to do much towards dehumidifying that moist Florida air. I generally do not look forward to staying there just for that reason. Still, those who are not bothered by the A/C issue will be hard-pressed to find fault, except for that somewhat bizarre CEO-worship thing that has been noted by other reviewers.

Room Tip: I'd recommend asking the management if there's some way to deprogram the room thermsotat to...

Stayed at the Rosen Plaza for a night as the Hilton was fully booked. The location is great, right across the street from some really nice restaurants, and just a short walk away from the convention center. Rooms are comfortable, but a little dated in appearance. There were also some weird nail polish stains all over the carpet. The wi-fi is free, which is a nice touch. Overall, great value for money. Wherever you turn at the Rosen Plaza you will notice the ongoing worship of the founder Mr. Rosen. He's on the cover of the in-room magazine (8 page spread inside, complete with baby pictures), or on the TV in the hotel lobby, giving interviews on a constant loop. That's really unnecessary and makes the hotel look like the founder's pet project.

Downsides - the car service, I know these guys are not hotel employees, but they scam travelers and that's unacceptable.
