I got this place by accident on Priceline. I was looking to get a simple 3 star on International Drive, but got upgraded here to Rosen Shingle Creek on the next road over- Universal Blvd.
Coming from New York, I'm sort of a spoiled world traveler, so when I got this place, my curiosity was peaked - as the reviews are so mixed. Well, I got to say- dollar-for-dollar (value), this is probably one of the top 3 places I ever stayed. I like Doral in Miami, but you pay thru the nose- triple the price! The Rosen property is beautifully manicured. Beautiful clean pools - 4 of them. The lobby is spacious and airy. With the tall glass windows, I'd like to experience a lightening rain storm here.
It's a shame this property doesn't get better reviews. Minus out the unreasonable idiots who gripe about the $16 parking and give negative reviews- and this place would be in the top 20 in Orlando.
The restaurants I believe are a bit on the high side, but the Oceola cafe offers a wonderful $18 munch buffet. Braised beef ribs, chicken- nice salad bar.
Last night- Angela (Annelka? Not sure of her name.), but she was very nice,and took the extra time to find us a king sized bed- given the hotel was crowded. A great experience overall.
