Located on 230 acres of garden grounds and nature trails, the Rosen Shingle Creek is the top luxury property in the Rosen Hotels & Resorts chain, which operates seven hotels in the Orlando area. Apart from pleasant walks, bird-watching, and seasonal fishing in Shingle Creek, the resort has a championship golf course, tennis courts, and four swimming pools. Its large, elegantly decorated rooms and numerous upscale amenities draws couples and families, but with almost half a million square feet of dedicated event space, it's also one of the largest convention hotels in the area. Combined with its convenient location near the Orange County Convention Center and the airport, it's a popular destination for business travelers. The immense Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress and the Marriott Orlando World Center Resort have many (or more) of the same amenities, but lack the high-end dining found here.
