Blocks spelling Holi-stay

Now more than ever we realize the true value and freedom of a vacation. We dreamed about it while we were stuck at home for months (or what felt like a year to some of us). As we wait for the worst to be far behind us, we look forward to the glimmer of recovery. So we start to plan for when we can travel. What better way to slowly get back to normal than to plan a safe vacation close to home.

Welcome to the Tropical Paradise at Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando

Consider staying at a hotel that cares about your safety. Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando provides daily housekeeping, fresh linens and towels, and use cleaning products designed to kill germs and viruses. Along with these housekeeping practices, the hotel has purposefully created an atmosphere of relaxation.

Your new home away from home has wonderful features that make this the hotel you’ll want to retreat to for the weekend. Having stayed indoors for such a long time means we need some natural vitamin D. What better way to revitalize yourself than to spend time in the sun? Here, three sparkling swimming pools welcome you to a poolside retreat, each nestled in a relaxing tropical landscape. Bring a good book, sun tan lotion, and then kick back and relax.

Stay at home orders probably also forced us out of our normal exercise routine. The fitness center, located next to one of our swimming pools, is ready to help you jumpstart your normal workout routine.

Driving Tour of Orlando and Surrounding Areas

Lake Eola/Downtown Orlando

The hub of the City Beautiful deserves at least one day. This area is great for an easy walking tour during which you should visit some of Orlando’s favorite bars and restaurants. Even a quick trip to the Orange County Regional History Center would probably be fun for certain readers.

College Park

Head out on the road to one of our hidden gems. Literary buffs probably know of this place already as Jack Kerouac’s former home is here. Bordering Downtown and College Park are the Orlando Science Center and the Orlando Museum of Modern Art. We recommend the Science Center for families with curious kids and the art museum for adults. College Park has an amazing amount of lakes, most with beautiful and peaceful walking paths around them. Rent a bike for the day and explore nature at a leisurely pace. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, you’ll have an eclectic selection of restaurants to choose from including Les Petit Pleasures (French bakery), Taste (Caribbean), and Paxia Alta Cocina Mexicana & Tequila Lounge (self-explanatory). There’s also a fine assortment of local shops and boutiques to explore.

Winter Park

Head east towards the famous Park Avenue where you can easily spend a luxurious day shopping high-end stores and dining at first-class restaurants like Bosphorous Turkish Cuisine, Boca Winter Park (farm-to-table-fare), Garp & Fuss (American gastropub), Croissant Gourmet (French bakery), Proper & Wild (vegan and vegetarian), as well as a great local selection of cafes and wine bars. We also recommend visiting the Winter Park Playhouse, a 501(c)(3) theater company that serves the local community and schools by promoting enrichment through the performing arts.

International Drive

Right outside of your hotel’s gates are midway attractions, entertaining museums, incredible dining, and shopping galore. Even across the street is a shopping, dining, and entertainment center—Pointe Orlando. Should you go, check out BB King’s Blues Club or Improv. Or catch the latest movie at the Regal Cinemas. Pointe Orlando is also home to the quirky attraction WonderWorks. Further down the strip are ICON Park™ where you’ll find the Observatory Wheel, SEA Life, Orlando’s Madame Tussauds, and other bars and restaurants. Need to shop for new summer clothes? Head to the north end of International Drive for mega savings on globally popular brand names at the Orlando International Premium Outlets.


There’s more to the south of us than Walt Disney World. There are eco-tours on airboats through pristine wetlands, wild times at Gatorland, hot air balloon rides, frequent classic car shows, and the Island Grove Wine Company at Formosa Gardens to name a few family-friendly activities. It’s reasonable to stay away from crowds at this time. Kissimmee offers a lot of small group gatherings.

Back at Home Base: Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando

We mentioned a few things at the beginning of this blog that you can enjoy at the hotel. Other things worth mentioning are fine dining at Jack’s Place at Rosen Plaza next door, pillow top mattresses in your guestroom, and the great selection of movie channels on your flat screen HDTV. Above all is the high level of quality service you get when you’re our guest. Our service to you is part of our legacy. From the moment you check in to the time you check out, we work hard to make sure your stay is as memorable as possible. Experience it for yourself by clicking the orange button at the top of this page.

This reboot of a familiar holiday classic sees Benedict Cumberbatch taking up the mantle of the eponymous Grinch in a story that is sure to warm the hearts of kids and adults alike during the colder holiday season.

You can feel it in the air, the season of love is here and flourishing at Rosen Inn Pointe Orlando. Let us take you on a romantic journey of what it’s like to be a couple at our hotel for a weekend.shutterstock_336756848

Before checking-in on the big day you call in advance to finalize arrangements. You add, “While we’re at it, may I have chocolates and champagne sent to my room, too?” Of course we oblige as we have a slew of extra amenities for you available at any time.

On arrival, you and your sweetheart are greeted by a friendly front desk clerk who checks you into a room that you’ll just love. The walk to your room is serene as you pass through a lush landscape of roses and tropical flowers. You’ve made it to your home away from home, but it’s different…and better. Your guestroom vista opens to the world-famous I-Drive skyline filled with dazzling lights and architecture abundant. The view leaves you both in awe. It’s the perfect backdrop to a romantic getaway. There’s so much to explore and experience just steps away from the hotel, but for now the bed calls you both for a comforting and sound night of sleep.

Wake up with your partner to a fresh, hot breakfast at our buffet featuring many favorite items. You choose what you want; feel free to create a veritable Valentine’s Day feast. Fueled and ready for the day, you’re now ready for a romantic adventure. There’s so much to do, but just a walk across the street awaits Pointe Orlando. Here you can treat your sweetheart to a movie date at the gigantic Regal Movie Theater, or a friendly game of laser tag at Hard Knocks. There’s comedy and live music if you want to pace your romance to a different tempo. Pointe Orlando is a great place to have a romantic dinner, but don’t forget that there’s a plethora of fine restaurants on I-Drive. Whatever your heart desires, we’re sure the perfect option is nearby.

The day is winding down, and you and your beloved head to Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando’s Zebra’s Bar for a nightcap. With karaoke four nights a week, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to serenade your date with his or her favorite tune. Finally, it’s time to turn in, and, Voila! There’s one more surprise waiting for you both. Delicately decorated and thoughtfully presented are the chocolates and champagne you ordered—“turndown” service unlike any other.

Romance is in the air at Rosen. We hope to see you and your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day.

Vacation planning usually comes with a great deal of questions. Does my hotel have this? Do they do that? There are questions that come up more often than others, so let’s answer those questions, which may answer any that you have.

Transportation: What are my options? For the convenience of our guests we provide free shuttle services to Universal Orlando® Resort, Wet ‘n Wild®, Aquatica®, Discovery Cove®, and SeaWorld® Orlando. Disney shuttles are available for $17 per person, per round trip. Reservations for both shuttle services are required. Our guest service desk is available to assist with other transportation options such as taxi services and passes for the IRide Trolley, which regularly travels the length of International Drive. Car rentals are also available through Enterprise Rent-A-Car, which has a station at Rosen Centre Hotel, our sister property.

Online Orders: Can I send my packages to the hotel? Yes! We are pleased to receive orders on behalf of our guests. We ask that they not be sent more than one week prior to guest’s arrivals. There is a fee associated with this service that usually starts at $10 per package weighing 49 pounds or less. Any packages over 49 pounds will be charged based upon weight. Packages must be picked up by the guest whose name it was delivered under. Photo ID is required for pick up.

Amenities: What’s in a guestroom? Guestrooms have coffee makers, microwaves, mini refrigerators and free Wi-Fi. We provide coffee and cups for the in-room coffee makers. Guestrooms also include an electronic safe in which guests can store valuables. These safes are designed so that you can create your own personal pin codes for access. Guests also have control over the air-conditioning units in their guestrooms.

If you find that you have more questions about our property, you can find most answers on our website under the About tab on the Hotel Fact Sheet page. Or you can reach out to us by filling out the Contact Us form on the homepage.

Theme parks provide an intangible thrill. For some of us, it’s a thrill and memory we’ll never forget. From childhood when we took our first steps to meet Mickey Mouse for the first time, to squeezing our parent’s hand all the way up to the top of the highest roller coaster drop; our experiences at theme parks are some of our strongest memories.


It’s no secret that Orlando is one of the world’s top theme park destinations, so go prepared to make the most of the experience. Bringing our own children for the first time to one of our beloved attractions or experiencing a theme park for the first time ourselves is quiet a whirlwind. We’ve listed a few travel tips to make your excursions to the theme parks the best possible.

Purchase tickets before you go. This should ensure you’re getting the best price possible.

Ask our Guest Relations about complimentary transportation options, shuttle schedules, and their favorite theme park features. (Hint: We offer complimentary, scheduled shuttles to Universal Orlando® Resort, SeaWorld®, and Wet ‘N Wild®.)

Designate a meeting spot for all large groups and family members. Kids may want to get lost in theme parks, but parents don’t want to spend their time looking for their kids.

Head to the parks early. Arrive early and avoid the mid-day crowds. While everyone is basking in the heat of the day, take an extended lunch outside of the parks or head to your hotel for an afternoon nap.

Once you’re re-energized and ready to take on the rest of the theme park, go back in the evening for some of the most specular night time shows and firework displays.

The most important tip of all, have fun and make some of the best memories!

The fantastic views and vistas surrounding Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando are truly spot on and place a visual “cherry” on top of your Orlando vacation. Next time you visit, ask for a guestroom with a view. Not sure what you’re looking for? Here are some ideas:

To our east you have the delightfully weird upside-down house called WonderWorks®. This building lives up to its name as it adds just the right amount of amusement and charm to a street already teeming with lively activity. Guestrooms in line with WonderWorks® offer a great view for someone who wants to keep their vacation fresh and fun.

South of our hotel is Pointe Orlando, the shopping plaza with which we share our name. This beautiful outdoor mall with its copious restaurants, shops, and entertainment becomes a view to behold at night. It lights up marking a sight to remember. Guests who want to see the brimming nightlife that’s constantly in action on I-drive will enjoy this particular vista.

Of course, the views of I-drive aren’t the only things to look forward to. The lush landscapes around any of our three glistening swimming pools are panoramas anyone can enjoy. Even at night, the light blue water shimmering through the air makes for the perfect send off to a good nights’ rest.

It’s hard recommending any one sight in particular, but if there’s one thing we know for sure, we have just the view for you.
