Tag: Florida

June marks the start of Florida’s rainy season, the time of year where thunderstorms roll in almost every afternoon and drive everyone indoors. These downpours, while intense, are usually brief and rarely last into the evening. But just because you have to head for cover, that doesn’t mean the fun stops entirely—there are plenty of fun indoor activities around the city that will provide much-needed respite from the rain.

Indoor Mini-Golf

Although most mini-golf courses are outdoors and exposed to the elements, there is a hidden gem located at the Artegon shopping complex, just across the street from the northernmost outlets on International Drive. Putting Edge is a glow-in-the-dark indoor mini-golf course, complete with black lights and music to jam to while you putt around. If you’re still looking to kill some time once you finish, there’s a movie theater right next door (and some pretty great movies coming out this June). //link parenthetical to June Movies blog

Bowling

Another great indoor activity that is perfect for spending a few sheltered hours in the afternoon is bowling. Some of our favorite spots are Kings Dining & Entertainment on I-Drive and Splitsville at Disney Springs. While the mere mention of the word “bowling” may call to mind images of pale fluorescent lighting, stale pizza, and pitchers of flat soda, you can rest assured that these places are contemporary and fun, with delicious food that competes with many of our favorite local restaurants.

Arcade

While certain activities become less exciting as we grow older, few things are as ageless as the excitement of stepping into an arcade with time to kill and some game credits burning a hole in your pocket. Whether you are racing against your friends, dominating your siblings on the air hockey table, or beating your family at Skee-Ball, few things are as distractingly fun as an arcade trip. Nowadays, there aren’t so many stand-alone arcades—the closest on I-Drive would be Dave & Buster’s, the combined arcade/restaurant. Other local favorites include Main Event Entertainment (bowling/arcade) and Andretti Indoor Karting and Games (go-karts/arcade). Even the Rosen Inn also has an arcade game room onsite.

If you are looking for a luxurious way to avoid the storms, you can’t beat taking those afternoon hours to pamper yourself at one of our spas. Both the Spa at Shingle Creek and the Spa at Rosen Centre offer a variety of massages, facials, and other relaxing services that will leave you feeling right as rain. For more information on services offered, please visit www.spaatshinglecreek.com or www.spaatrosencentre.com.

In preparation for Spring Break, we’re summing up exactly what sets us apart from other area hotels and laying down the facts. If you’re considering Rosen Inn, you know value, comfort, and convenience of location are all a shoo-in.

1.When Harris Rosen purchase the Rosen Inn, it was named International Inn and only had 251 guestrooms. A building expansion in 1979 brought Rosen Inn to 315 guestrooms.

2. Want to enjoy a great dinner and drinks? Our new Shogun Sakura Sushi bar, located next to the International Pub, serves freshly made sushi. The two places combined hosts TWO happy hours: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Shogun Sakura and 10 p.m. to close at International Pub.

3. No need to travel far from the hotel for late night snacks and emergency needs. Our Lite Bite Mini-Market & Deli is open 24/7. Purchase can be made at the front desk after midnight.

4. Spring break in Orlando should include a trip to a theme park. At Rosen Inn, you can drive the 2-mile distance to Universal Orlando® Resort in less than 10 minutes or you can walk the paved way in just over 30 min, that is, if you haven’t already booked a seat on our complimentary shuttle service to the theme park.

5.During Spring Break, sleep is for the weak. However, did you know Rosen Inn features Simmons Beautyrest® pillow top mattresses? After a long day of fun at the theme parks, it’s hard to resist our comfy and cozy beds to recoup from the fun-filled day.

International Drive hosts a wealth of activities that alone or combined create perfect dates and adventures for any taste and any day of the year—regardless if you’re spending a romantic evening with your sweetheart or hanging out with your friends.

The way to some people’s hearts is through the gift of a delicious meal. International Drive is home to many restaurants including some of Rosen’s own culinary delights. Rosen Plaza’s Jack’s Place and Rosen Centre’s The Everglades are two of our fine-dining restaurants serving incredible dishes like our prime New York strip steak and broiled Florida grouper. Our sister property Rosen Shingle Creek, located minutes away on Universal Boulevard, is home to A Land Remembered and Cala Bella—both proudly hold Four Diamond status. If you’re looking for something a bit more family friendly, Shogun Japanese Steakhouse makes it’s happy home right here at Rosen Inn.

What about memorable activities and adventures? Share a romantic sunset view of Orlando from the Orlando Eye at IDrive 360 where you can let your love soar 400 feet high as you spot all the local theme parks, Downtown Orlando, and beyond. Maybe your romance involves a little friendly competition, which goes well with mini-golf at one of many locations along International Drive. There’s also bowling at Kings Orlando, a retro bowling alley.

What if you’re with friends and not out on a date? Group activities are abundant around our hotel. Challenge friends to a friendly battle at Hard Knocks—laser tag at its finest. Or save the world at Mindquest Live. Once the sun sets, assemble the squad at Club 39 at Rosen Plaza to dance the night away.

To all lovely couples and awesome single people, we wish you a happy Valentine’s Day!

Theme parks definitely highlight any visit to Central Florida. The first time you walk into a theme park, all you probably want to do (and only have time to do) is ride the rides. After you’ve tackled the roller coasters and other thrill rides, is it worth visiting the parks again? Yes it is! Theme parks are usually packed with hidden treasures easily missed during first visits.

If you’re looking for fresh thrills for your second (or third) trip to the parks, here are a couple of ideas for your return visit.

See the shows. This includes stages shows, street shows, and parades. Some theme parks have a nightly fireworks display or sendoff shows that you might have overlooked or missed during the first visit.

Stage ride photos. Rides tend to take photos on big drops. Plan a pose for a hilarious group photo. Search for funny photo ideas online. However, use good judgement and keep it clean. Offensive photos are often not made available for purchase.

Participate in scavenger hunts. Some parks have their own scavenger hunts; some are created by theme park enthusiasts and posted online. Hint: Universal Studios® has a Minions Scavenger Hunt.

Interact with characters. Characters at the parks will usually play along with you. (Just be nice and keep it classy for the children.) Silly poses with superheroes and famous characters make for the most memorable pictures.

Check out the bloggers online who discuss where to find each theme park’s hidden treasures and what other fun activities exist for you to enjoy. We hope this blog helps sparks some ideas and research. Now get out there and make some great memories!

Kon’nichiwa! (Hello!) Do you and your family crave a little more than the average sit-down dining experience? Shogun Japanese Steakhouse, located in our hotel, brings much more than a meal to the table. It is not uncommon for our guests and visitors to leave with a new favorite hot-spot, or shall we say, “hot-teppan,” a word play on the teppanyaki cooking method used by our Shogun chefs. Be astounded as they display an entertaining show of flips and tricks with a little side of humor while cooking for you and your family. Shogun Japanese Steakhouse is perfect for group dinners and gatherings as well. Give our specialty yum-yum sauce a taste and let our chefs serve a dinner to remember. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to dinner. Coming soon: Shogun will have a new sushi and sake bar!

Imagine a horizon filled with world-famous roller coasters and theme park skylines including the spires of Hogwarts Castle of Harry Potter™. That’s what you’ll get at Rosen Inn. It’s fair to say our hotel features unique views you won’t find anywhere else in the world. Hotels across the globe have views and vistas all of their own such as a high rise overlooking an urban-city scape, to the countryside of a bed and breakfast, to even part of a twisty rollercoaster shooting out and above a theme park landscape.

Sight is the strongest of our conscious senses. What you see reacts with how you perceive the world around you. That being said, Orlando is sure to bring fun and excitement to your eyes.

What other views can you expect to see from our guestrooms? Every guest gets a panorama view of our grounds and pool area. Some of our guestrooms also have great views of International Drive’s sparkling night-life and—newest to the Orlando skies—The Orlando Eye. The Eye is a view you won’t want to miss as it lights up the area in various colors.

Give yourself and your eyes the Orlando vacation they need with the various sight and vistas offered at Rosen Inn. Ask your reservation specialist for a room with a view.
