Sleighbells are ringing and Jolly old St. Nicholas is making his way to ICON Park! Holiday spirit runs aplenty at the Santa Workshop Experience. Your joyous celebrations begin as soon as you park. Hop aboard the Pearl Express Train as it transports families from the parking garage into a winter wonderland complete with your favorite festivities, which is really the ICON Park in brilliant disguise. Don’t forget to schedule your child’s photoshoot with Santa! This year, children won’t be able to get close to Santa, but his elves have really stepped in to create a totally safe atmosphere. With their magic touch and creative angles, your photos will look like your kids are standing next to the jolly old man at this year’s SANTAtized photo op. On Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., Mrs. Clause stops by for stories and cookie decorating with the kids (separate reservations required). Holiday spirit requires some energy from special drinks and sweets, so fill your tummies with hot or frozen chocolate drinks and gingerbread cookies, sold at The Wheelhouse Market Food Hall. End the night with an epic flight on the Wheel inside your own Christmassy capsule decked out in twinkly lights. Maybe you and your family can guess how Santa and his crew might fly through Orlando? It’ll be a Christmas to remember while keeping you and yours safe.

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.

To all lovely couples and awesome single people, we wish you a happy Valentine’s Day!
Each New Year, we resolve to improve by adopting a healthier lifestyle, but sometimes our best intentions are hard to keep while on vacation. This year, don’t let vacation be the excuse that lets you slide on improving your body, mind, and spirit. Keep your fitness resolution by sticking to these helpful tips.
Our property is less than a five minute drive from Universal Orlando® Resort, but why drive when you can walk? Sidewalks and crosswalks connect you to the theme parks and keeps your family safe from bustling traffic. The walk takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
Don’t forget your favorite wearable fitness tracker while visiting the parks. The latest editions of iPhone and Android have fitness tracking software, so keep your smartphone on you. By tracking your steps and calories burned, you’ll have a better understanding of your fitness levels on a daily basis.
Is a relaxing day at the hotel in store for you? Check out our 24-hour fitness center to meet your recommended 30 to 60 minutes of daily exercise. Swimming is also, without doubt, an effective way to burn calories. Swimming in our seasonally-heated swimming pool will relax joints and muscles worn out from high-impact theme park activities and still is an effective form of fitness training.
At Rosen Inn, we care about your health and want your resolutions to be successful.
Cheers to your health!
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!
Great place to stay
Great location, clean rooms, friendly staff and lovely breakfast. So affordable and beds are super comfy! Would definitely go back. Perfect for going to Universal, we were able to walk everyday. Staff were so helpful and pleasant. Cleaners came everyday and were very nice also.
Excellent stay, clean, close to Universal
The room was comfortable and super clean, check-in was fast and so was the check out. Friendly and smiley attendants and very knowledgeable of the area. Location, location, location: the room was very quiet and you are just by International Drive. Best price and experience in Orlando so far.
