“From the first stages of site searching and negotiating with your Sales staff to the final goodbyes by the bell staff, this program was 5 star! Our Sales Manager was thorough and always well versed regarding the property and very prepared regarding the client! They stayed with the process long after the sale had been made and provided a continuity that was greatly appreciated.

The Convention Service team was phenomenal! They spent many hours absorbing the intricacies of this program in preparation for the group. This dedication was rewarded with a flawless program. The staff, at all levels, were superb and had a fantastic attitude. Once on site, your entire management team were very hands on and were there for all major functions and involved in solving any challenges that were presented.

Chef and his staff were incredible in preparing culinary delights for almost 2,000 people. Their presentation, whether plated or on buffet, was a work of art! The attendees all raved about the food!

The entire hotel rose to the occasion and provided service and quality that were amazing. I have been in this business for over 20 years and this was one of the best programs I have ever operated, due in no small part to your hotel and staff. You have an excellent group at the Rosen who operate in the truest sense of a very complete team. Both C. R. Bard and Trinity Ventures, Inc., found the partnership with your property to be mutually rewarding and a fantastic experience.”

– Deborah G. Burner, President
Trinity Ventures, Inc.

“As an Events Manager, I cannot possibly shine as bright as I did last week without the enormous tasks executed by your team. As I’ve said before, I still believe your team sleeps at the hotel! They were always there ready to help me and each team worked very well with each other and stepped in without delay on any request I had for them. From the banquet managers to the A/V team, to even the folks responsible for keeping up the bathrooms, everything was 5 star across the board!

If we go to Orlando again, it will definitely be the Rosen Centre!”
