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.

Rooms and bed was very comfy and clean. Parking was like $27 a day. The pools was warm, clean and accessible. There are servers that come around and bar close by. The bathrooms were very well maintained by the pools. The resort is truly beautiful. We stayed on the floor that you didn't need to take an elevator (I think floor 3). Anyway, once you… Read more

Anyway, once you figure it out its not difficult to get around. Many places to conversate and hang out. I would recommend it! Read less

We stayed for five nights (March 2020). Nice hotel, nice area. It is a BIG resort. We were there during the night only, we pretty much left 7am and came back 9pm everyday. The lobby is really nice as well as much areas. Rooms are average for a resort of that kind/price. Free internet is limited to 10mbps, you have to pay for full speed, and receiving packages is also charged based on weight. PARKING: You have two options for parking (Valet $22 I think) and self-parking ($18 per day). We didnt expect parking to be charged for guests. Our daily rate (Hotwire) was below $80 per night plus taxes, so parking was very expensive based on the daily hotel rate we paid. Also, self parking is not right there, expect to walk. We read some negative reviews about parking prices as well. Overall good hotel resort if you dont care for parking and you plan on enjoying the hotel. Read less

In particular, they did a great job on the food. And that is not easy for such a large group. We were served breakfast and lunch buffets, cocktail receptions and a gala dinner.

What a fabulous hotel , hubby and I booked through Virgin holidays . Prices included parking and executive lounge and discounts in some restaurants. We could not fault anything. The staff , service and room was excellent, the grounds and pools were immaculate . The lounge was great soft n hot drinks from 6.30 am till midnight , breakfasting the lounge was fruit , bagels , cereal and pastries. We ate there every morning, 6-8 was canapés and they were amazing, you could get beer and wine and there was s charge bud light was $5 which was good . At 9 pm there we desserts . The pools were lovey and quiet and to say the hotel has a conference centre on it it never effected us, the only time it did was one morning when we booked a taxi but he was on time but he complained the road was busy. Overall the hotel is amazing it’s out of the way about so you need a car but it’s so peaceful , relaxing and I would return and highly recommended it 100% Read less

I am here for a business conference and this is a beautiful resort. The staff is friendly and helpful and they rooms are comfortable, clean, and modern. My main complaint is when my room was cleaned and toiletries were not restocked, so I had to call and wait for them to arrive, which took some time. To me, that shouldn’t happen at this type of resort. We were also told one evening by an employee at the Mexican Restaurant that there was no wait at the steakhouse. We had been working all day and were exhausted, but walked over to the steakhouse, only to be told we required reservations. We explained an employee told us there was no wait, but the maitre d laughed and no apology was given. That wasn’t the best experience. If given the choice, I would return. I just wouldn’t expect perfection if that is what one is looking for in a resort stay. Read less
