Visited with my teenager for an event at the Orlando convention center. The location was super convenient with the covered walkway to the convention center. The room was adequate, but the A/C had a noisy vibration so we left it off most of the time. The rooms were otherwise fine with comfortable beds and the usual amenities. Carpet in my hotel room is not preferred, but the rooms were clean. The public areas were great! Affordable quick service deli counter in the lobby, along with a coffee shop and convenience store. Pool area was great. Staff was friendly. Minor issue with the alarm system not resetting for about 30 minutes after a drunk pulled the switch, so that was annoying, but overall a good stay. Would definitely return for convention center events. Recommended! Read less

Marlan from valet was great! Super personable and retrieved our vehicle quickly. Your hotel has a rockstar valet team. Thank you! I appreciated the restaurant on property; plenty of options. Especially the little gas station store where I was able to grab my soda.

With Hurricane Ian bearing down on us, our family looked to evacuate to Orlando and found a room online at the Rosen Plaza Hotel. In dire circumstances, you succumb to whatever is available, but we would never have guessed in a million years that we would have had the greatest hotel experience of our lives. It started the moment we walked in as the lobby attendant let us know that the hotel was not only adjusting our hotel charges, but also waiving our pet and parking fees to assist us during the crisis. Unbelievable! Then, a gentleman offered to get my husband a bag as he was struggling with some items. That Assistant Manager, Jay Finkelstein, worked incessantly over the next several days to make the evacuees feel safe, cared for and comfortable. They started by opening the buffet, so that people coming in from their travels could be fed. Even with food and supplies getting depleted around us, the staff put on their best smiles and strived to make evacuees feel warmly received. Even pets were accommodated when I saw them constructing two huge indoor stations for pet’s needs. I was impressed and mentioned to a staff member that they looked like real grass. She assured me that they were indeed. As we waited for the storm to pass over us, we found our room to be a clean and comfortable haven. I’m not sure Mr. Finkelstein ever got any sleep during our stay, as he continually floated among the guests to assist current ones and remember past ones by name. One thing that I know for sure is that we will never forget the kindness of The Rosen Plaza Hotel. Read less

We needed a different style of handicap room, and needed a hospital bed moved. The day manager, front desk, engineering staff, and bellmen quickly arranged a very complex move for us. We would definitely stay at the Rosen Plaza for our next meeting.
