Rosen Inn

International Drive, Orlando

The hotel

The Rosen Inn is just a mile from Universal Orlando Resort™, perfectly located for fans of thrill rides like the Incredible Hulk Coaster® and Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™. If you are a non-driver, the hotel operates an excellent complimentary scheduled shuttle service to select theme parks. The Palms Dining Room provides a great value breakfast buffet for families, Shogun Japanese steakhouse serves delicious cuisine and Sakura Sushi Bar featuring freshly-prepared sushi rolls, nigari and sashimi served in an intimate setting. For an early evening reviver, The International Pub is on hand with a suitably global array of cocktails and American cuisine. Nearby attractions include the I Drive 360, Madame Tussauds wax museum, and Pirates Adventure Dinner Show — an experience well worth checking out.

I was never able to stay here. The hotel knowing allowed me to book, knowing that the hotel is not open. I am fine with the practice as long as I am informed in advance. Otherwise, this borderlines on being a bait and switch technique. I will never stay at another Rosen owned property due to this. It would be one thing if the hotel they were… Read more
I was never able to stay here. The hotel knowing allowed me to book, knowing that the hotel is not open. I am fine with the practice as long as I am informed in advance. Otherwise, this borderlines on being a bait and switch technique. I will never stay at another Rosen owned property due to this. It would be one thing if the hotel they were moving me to was nicer and closer to the where I wanted to be, instead it is an inferior property (my opinion) and further away (fact). On top of this they wanted to charge me the same price. Not going to happen. My opinion, stay away. I do not stay at properties that cannot deliver what they promise in a booking, especially when I am getting an inferior room at a longer distance at the same price. For that price, I can stay at a different hotel closer to Universal for where they were going to put me. Read less

Great location and very helpful staff, we decided to walk after getting the bus the first day and walking only takes 20 minutes to Universal. Close to all bars and restaurants, breakfast is good, reception staff are great but the tour booking desk are pretty set on up selling holiday home exhibitions to get you cheaper tickets to shows, instead of just booking what you want so we just avoided that desk. All shops for ponchos and drinks are right next to the hotel. Very comfy beds and house keeping staff are great, always came back to a clean room after a long day. Read less

Once again we chose this hotel stay in March 2020 due to its closeness to Universal. Unfortunately we did not get to Universal due to the park closure due to the Coronavirus!! Also our trip was cut short by five days as British Airways changed our flight departure to an earlier date due to Coronavirus. Our stay at the hotel was pleasant, room and bathroom clean and tidy. The room was cleaned daily. The only negative for the room was the noisy airconditioning. Breakfast buffet was available each day. There was plent of choice with a plentiful supply of coffee and orange juice. All the staff were helpful and friendly from reception to the dining room. We used the pool area each day which was clean and tidy, with plenty of sun loungers and towels. Read less

Stayed here after a horrific experience at a sister property, the Rosen Clarion Inn at LBV. The staff here, contrarily, was courteous and polite, informative, friendly, quick and efficient! Everything guests deserve at check-in. Sis working the 3pm shift was perfection, way to represent:) Regret not getting her name. Rooms are internal, which is a huge plus for safety and atmosphere for myself as a woman. Hand sanitizer readily available at front desk, as well as COVID19 policies on display were exemplified, not just posted. Restaurant closed due to safety and snack store freshly (full and fresh food) packed and kept open 24 hours for guests. Free, gated parking, wifi. Clean and inviting rooms. Lost 1 star after housekeeping knocked early, I notified front desk, and security came up to still try to enter the room. *eyeroll* Whatever. With a few upgrades and slightly tighter organization, this property has the potential to outshine their competition by miles. Read less
