This is the 3rd Rosen property I have visited, the others being the Rosen Center and the Rosen ShingleCreek. i stayed for 2 nights for business.
Hotel location: located across the street from the Pointe Orlando shopping center and the Orange County Convention Center, it is very conveniently located from Convention Center related meetings and only 20-25 minutes from MCO airport. Sea World is roughly a 5-10 drive away, but some of the Disney parks are probably 30+ minutes away.
Check-in: staff was polite and efficient.
The room itself: I had a standard room on the 10th floor that overlooked the front drive. Road and traffic noise, however, was not an issue. Though the hotel is older than say, the ShingleCreek, the room looked like it was recently renovated, including digital temperature control for the room, updated tile floor and granite countertop in the bathroom, and flat screen TV. Beds were a little too soft for my taste. The only issues were the air conditioner being a bit loud and some ants that found themselves a cozy den in the room's desk (see photo of one of these denizens). I'm guessing one of the prior guests made quite a mess eating or drinking at the desk.
Conference facilities and staff: we had no technical difficulties with our business meetings. Everyone greatly appreciated the use of Orlando-appropriate background music (think of mouse ears) for the Q&A parts of our meeting. Meeting meals had a large assortment of heathy and premium options (eg Odwalla juices).
Check-out:efficient. No issues with mystery charges.
Summary: a fine enough hotel for business meetings, especially those at the Convention Center. One the down side, It is not at the level of luxury as the ShingleCreek and is not all that close to Disney if you need to take a taxi to the parks. Would I stay here for business again? Yes. Would I stay here for vacation? Only if I received a phenomenal room rate; otherwise, probably not.
