Rosen Shingle Creek

International Drive, Orlando

Virgin rating

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.

I always had a great experience in Rosen shingle before but this time was a completely different experience. At greeting the sales person was not very friendly. When asked for a nice room they gave me a room with filthy carpet, unclean bathroom and the hall way was wet. When I requested to change my room they stated all their rooms are like this . I told them I stayed here before and they are not . I asked to speak to the manager and initially the front desk person said she was the manager, when pressed she went to the manager, Brett Warren, who did not rally care. Management who does not care trickles down employees who does not care . When I complained they didn’t even apologize and gave me another room saying it’s upgraded, it was the same room with a view of the roof down stairs. The elevators were wet, teenagers in the hallway screaming and making noise and people in the pool making noise until one am. I understand the hotel was busy, but the hotel has over 1000 rooms they should know how to handle a large capacity. I will not come back to this hotel . Orlando has many beautiful hotels that you can choose from stay away from this one if you what a 4 star experience. Read less

First and last time here Had a queen suite. Mattress and pillows should have been replaced a Long time ago! AC on and off all night and made so much noise Restaurants were extremely,y high priced and only some of the were worth the price. Many hotels offered shuttled from airport not there.

I placed this reservation online and was not aware, nor was I told during check-in that I would be charged $28 plus 6.6% for parking. This is ridiculous. I have stayed at many other resorts in Orlando and never had to pay for parking. I will never stay or recommend this establishment to anyone.

Consider another resort. I have stayed here several times, and this property is in a downward spiral. I was attending a conference, and I understand some events are uncontrollable. However, hospitality and customer service are neither. I arrived early, at 8 am, and was told check-in was at 3 pm. I left my number and requested that I be notified… Read more
Consider another resort. I have stayed here several times, and this property is in a downward spiral. I was attending a conference, and I understand some events are uncontrollable. However, hospitality and customer service are neither. I arrived early, at 8 am, and was told check-in was at 3 pm. I left my number and requested that I be notified when my room was ready as is standard in every other hotel, except this one. While watching many other guests check-in, as I had no special accommodation, I rechecked at 11 a.m., and again at 1, and again at 2... my room was not ready, apparently, and I had also not been contacted even after having left my number every time. I returned at 3 pm and my room wasn't ready. I was charged full price for every night. I finally checked again at 4 pm because I hadn't been called, and my room was finally ready. Not a single member of the management team reached out at any time during my stay. Yes, the reservation system did fail for a second day in a row, and they were doing their best, regrettably poorly. This would not happen at a Gaylord property. The internet suffered a major outage during the conference for a prolonged time, and when I finally arrived home and reached out to management via email, it was met with, an "oh well, we hope you stay again." I am not planning on staying again with so many other properties in such close proximity. Read less
