Rosen Shingle Creek

International Drive, Orlando

The hotel

This isn’t just a holiday resort, it’s a world in itself. For starters, there’s the 18-hole golf course and 4 heated outdoor pools. The Spa at Shingle Creek is perfect for a pamper, and there's fun for all the family with tennis, basketball and sand volleyball games galore. When hunger calls, head to one of the many restaurants and choose from a range of cuisines, or head out onto I-Drive for some classic American diners. Just a short drive from Orlando's best theme parks, you're never far from the fun. And once the day is done, head to your relaxing room for some down time before another day of adventure ahead.

Very tough week for ourr family. Came to Orlando due to my father in law in the hospital while still going through this horrible pandemic. Hubby and I decided to stay at Rosen Shingle Creek because we've stayed there four times in the past and always had a great stay. I called prior to ask about their covid-19 protocol and the receptionist answered all my concerns which made me feel at ease. From the moment you enter the building,your temperature gets checked, there's hand sanitizers all over the resort, you have to wear maskđź‘ŚHuge shot out and thanks to FD agent Crystal H who was so amazing from her warm smile and kindness at check in. Room was beautiful and very clean. Also, thank you FD MOD Miguel B for your understanding and giving us a Comp late C/O so my husband could spend more time at the hospital with his dad and didn't feel so rushed. Wished it wasn't such a short stay. Will be back soon. Oh, there margerrittas are a must try. So good! Read less

When my family & I arrived last night, the security guard at the front door checking temps was VERY rude to me for not having a face mask on coming through the door. After a very long drive to get here, my family and I headed down stairs to enjoy a nice dinner at one of the many restaurants here(which is the sole reason I chose this hotel ). To our disappointment, we found ALL of them were closed excepts for the burger place.... so we decided to eat there,...it took 5 minutes before anyone acknowledged us & seated us(they were not busy....3 other tables there and ample staff) After being seated no one ever acknowledged us again, no drinks, no food, not even a “we will be right with you”....nothing! There were at least four staff members “working” but only seemed one of them was actually working. We sat there 21 minutes(My wife timed it as a joke at first but....) with only four other tables in the restaurant & eventually decided to leave hungry without ever being spoken to. So, left without options, we went to the store down stairs to get something to eat from the deli. I got a Philly, my wife got a chx Cesar & my daughter got a slice of pizza.. the philly was dry and unseasoned, the Cesar’s chicken was cold and unseasoned(didn’t come with a fork, wife ate with her hands when we got back to room, and my kid hated her pizza after one bite and threw it away(and cried because she was so upset)🤬....luckily we bought a few snacks (chips & nuts for the trip tomorrow) so for my $100+ that I spent in that store , my family ate chips & nuts for dinner!!!! The cook at the deli was very nice and the only slightly positive experience so far..... I have stayed here before and had a great experience. I don’t know what’s going on here now or who is in charge of it but this place has fallen so far off of the mark. I also want to say that I have NEVER taken the time to write a bad review....EVER! but my experience compelled me to do so. I have paid for another night already & I am leaving here today regardless. I am genuinely & whole heartily disappointed. Room 4107 Read less

I love this place. We are in a grand suite and the room is huge! The property is gorgeous! Staff is super friendly and helpful. We are here on a cheer trip and they are very accommodating. The only thing I will say is that the suites should have a pull out couch instead of having to get rollaways but my kids don’t mind.

It has 3 pools and 2 hot tubs. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. Big clean rooms, everyone there is helpful. Many stores inside clothing , accessories to food stores. Free rides to the parking lot. Fantastic decorations for Christmas, they even had a workout room and a game room Its a good place to go to be pampered.

We were placed in this hotel by Virgin after our flight home from Orlando had been cancelled. The hotel is very dated, and a weird feeling as you first walk through due to the bars/restaurants at the front. We were there for 1 night, and 1 day before our flight back home and we couldn’t get out quick enough! We had early check in from Disney springs on our last day where they took our suitcases and we never received these back for our stay at this hotel, so as you can imagine all we had was our hand luggage and the clothes we were wearing back to cold rainy England. We had 5 in a party, 2 in 1 room 3 in another, we thought our little belongings we had with us would be safe in our room whilst we went for breakfast but we were totally wrong! As we returned from breakfast one of our rooms had already been cleaned, and one was in the process of being cleaned for the day, My father uses E cigarettes and kept them, the chargers in a sunglasses pouch, when we returned from breakfast they had disappeared, along with all of our iPhone chargers, and kindle! We asked the two cleaners who was in our other room wether she had moved them or picked them up and thrown them away by accident, They acted very strangely like they couldn’t understand us or what we were talking about! One lady then proceeded to leave the room strangely clutching on to her bag and walk along the corridor to another cleaner to hand the back over and then come back into the room and carry on cleaning. We immediately called the front desk and asked for managers or security as something was not right with the cleaners we had spoken too. We explained to the security and managers what had gone missing and the cleaners tried to dismiss us and say it wasn’t them, so we asked the managers to check their cleaning trolleys or bag for our missing items. The security were very reasonable and did not hesitate to have a look through, and we explained how one lady wondered off down the corridor, our missing belongings were then found in a bin in the corridor!! Not something you would expect to happen when you go for breakfast, after a stressful night of having your flight cancelled. I can’t believe airlines use this hotel for over night stays! Read less
