You know that feeling you get when you have a first-class ticket and you watch everyone in coach board the plane worried that they have to sit next to the mom unconcerned/ unfamiliar with any form of discipline with her kids. Do you know what I mean , the rude brat throwing whatever they can get ahold of at you. Even worse they have the misfortune of Being seated next to the guy that thinks that he doesn't have to wear deodorant, and he gives off that smell that makes even his shirt want to throw itself in the trash just avoid being on him. I digress, so you're in first class and you catch that look of envy they have that you're comfortable, smiling, & drinking some wine or champagne in you're oversized seat. Well that's the exact when I got to the entrance of this hotel, more surprising was the fact that the employees gave off that same level of service. This is one of the nicest hotels I stayed at on I drive and I would give you the four or five star rating but aside from the pristine landscape and the amazing layout of the pool, and even the great restaurants they have on site the most welcoming part of my stay was my visit to the deli where I met Blondy. London is the guy that worked at the deli and he was beyond the, dating not only did he asked me how I was doing he also assisted me with finding anything I was looking for and if they didn't have it there he told me where I could find it he also assisted me with food choices and even a check out he was beyond kind to me to top it off I went outside for a cigarette and he let me use a lighter cuz I didn't have one so I wouldn't have to go ahead and purchase a lighter or run back upstairs for one( of course the lighter was returned). I guess I shouldn't have said that I degress since it seems like that's the theme of this review what I want to say or highlight most of all is that Blondy can best be described as the epitome of customer service, he treated me as if I were a family member or a great friend I would definitely suggest hiring more like him or at least putting him in a training position because that's a skill that most people don't have. Thanks again Blondy, you're awesome! Read less

Where do we start? One of our first weekend getaways was at this beautiful hotel perfectly located between the theme parks. So it was fitting that we returned here on December 30 as we prepared for our wedding on January 2. We normally book our reservations through an online source but from check in to check out we are always treated like a four-star high-paying guest. Ever since our wedding we return to the Rosen plaza at least one weekend a month because we enjoy the location so we can visit the theme parks the beautiful well appointed rooms and of course they’re amazing hot tub! On many occasions we have been greeted by LIZ at the front desk who I think now knows us by name José The rest of the bartenders all know our favorite drink an ice cold Alcatraz craft beer and the local craft cider their lobby bar not only carries well-known namebrand but are also committed to keeping a local flair with local wines and local craft beer! The security is present but not overwhelming the hotel always makes a family feel safe however if you have never stayed on a Rosen property you don’t understand the difference that the Rosen employees are not your normal hotel employees. From The front desk to the maid service the bell stand to the lobby attendant everybody seems to truly love their job and love to serve people. On one occasion I actually had to get up and go to work early in the morning as I was wiping the sleep out of my eyes walking to pick up my car I noticed Mr. Rosen in the lobby when I asked the valet if that was really him he said yeah he comes here all the time... I admire this because this is exactly what Walt Disney used to do in his parks to maintain the quality assurance Something very similar this morning happened to me I was walking back to my room and this gentleman in a suit thank me for staying at the hotel He asked me about my stay we had about a 20 minute conversation and I shared my thoughts and appreciation for the staff and everybody at the hotel he then introduced himself as Jay the assistant general manager It blew my mind because I have stayed at many hotels around the world and never seen an owner or upper management walk the hotels and greet guests the way that people do within the Rosen hotel chain is a local I not only Appreciate this but appreciate their commitment to the community their employees and each and every guest who walk through the door! I highly recommend any of the Rosen properties this happens to be our favorite! Read less

The room was always clean and presentable upon my return in the afternoon. The service in the hotel bar was great as well as the pool bar. We never felt rushed and the bar server was quick to add we are able to get snacks at lite bites and bring into the bar area.

Outstanding and above-and-beyond is the only way to describe how the Rosen Plaza team were with our 200+ conference held there for 3 days February 2020. I would HIGHLY recommend as an event venue of any kind.

Stayed for 2 weeks over Christmas. The good: Hotel is well located away from the noise and hustle of international drive but close enough to nice places at the end of the drive. The hot tub and heated pool was a great bonus. The food served at main breakfast area was an excellent value for money as 25% discount can be used. Shop on site was helpful couple of times, also getting 25% discount. The bad: Noise, noise and noise. If you are a light sleeper stay away from here! I suffered terribly for both weeks, even when using earplugs. The walls are made of rice paper! All rooms are interconnected, meaning zero privacy and zero noise isolation. Floor's occupation annoying...loud families with loud kids, loud drunks etc. Awful. Staff uninterested, unwelcoming and impersonal..especially at the front desk. Cleaning was a massive hit and miss, most of the time a miss. Apparently the hotel has high standards and rigid training in place - did not see any evidence of either for the both weeks we were there. Overpriced drinks in the bar, happy hour included cheap nasty cocktails and some rubbish beer served in plastic glasses. The amount of single use plastic used at this hotel is shocking! No environmental consciousness whatsoever. We kept our towels hang and yet they were changed, despite of plastic sign saying if its hanging we wont change it. No gifts to guests over Christmas..nothing at all. This hotel is incredibly impersonal and the word hospitality means absolutely nothing. We were / are massively dissatisfied and disappointed with our stay, we had many issues at the beginning and under no circumstance will we ever stay with this orlando chain. We do not recommend this hotel, the other large and well known hotel chains will be our safe choice next time to ensure we get the standards we are accustomed to. Read less
