Recently I had the opportunity to stay at a gorgeous hotel in Orlando, Florida – the Rosen Shingle Creek. To put it mildly, this property is huge and would make for the perfect place to stay should you be visiting a Disney park, Universal Studios or Universal’s Islands of Adventure, or if you are simply in town for a conference like I was. I enjoyed the Rosen Shingle Creek so much, I felt compelled to share this property spotlight with you. I think you will find it offers everything that one could need and so much more.
Rooms are available with double queen beds or single king beds, but there are also hospitality suites, executive suites, Grande and Presidential suites as well. The view from at least half of the rooms features the property’s stunning pools and golf course. All guest rooms come with:
- Complimentary high-speed WIFI and hardwired internet access
- 40” LED HDTVs
- Mini fridge
- Plush robes
- Coffee and tea maker
- IHome docking station and radio
- Caswell-Massey guest room amenities and more.
Family and Pet Friendly
The Rosen Shingle Creek is a family-friendly property complete with high-chairs in many of the restaurants, a kiddie pool, and even cribs and rollaway beds upon request in your room. There are also tennis courts, a basketball court, a volleyball court, natural trails, video game room and more to keep your entire family entertained.
The hotel also lets you bring your furbabies with you on your stay as long as they are current on vaccinations. At this time they only allow one dog per guestroom, however. At the time of this writing the pet fee is $150 for a maximum of 7 nights stay. You’ll be provided with a sign that says “dog in room” upon check-in as well.
Eating and Leisure Activities
As of October 2017, the property boast 15 dining options including Mexican, Italian and Japanese cuisines. There is a pool bar, a sandwich and salad shop, smoothie cafe and more. If you’re looking to sample several items in one sitting, I’d recommend the breakfast or lunch buffet in Cafe Osceola.
Leisure activities aside from lounging by the pool include playing a round on an award winning golf course, and spending time being pampered at The Spa at Shingle Creek.
The golf course was created in partnership with the Arnold Palmer Design Company, and promises to give players challenging greens regardless of your skill level. The Spa features all of the favorite treatments from massages to facials, mud wraps to pedicures, and more.
Rosen Shingle Creek is More Resort than Hotel
Short of needing to depart for a day at a theme park or whatever you’re in town for, Rosen Shingle Creek has pretty much everything you need on property to have a relaxing and leisurely vacation. When you’re ready to book your next trip to Orlando, I would highly recommend staying at the Rosen Shingle Creek. Give Ingenious Travel a call at 888.695.0321.
