Rosen Centre


With more than 150,000 square feet of flexible meeting space connected by sky-walk to the Orange County Convention Center, the Rosen Centre Hotel is the perfect place to host your next event. From a simply stocked hospitality suite, to an elegant evening affair in the 35,000 square foot Grand Ballroom, the Rosen professionals will plan, prepare and flawlessly execute every detail with a personal touch. Include the 18,000 square foot Executive Ballroom and a 14,375 square foot Junior Ballroom, as well as 35 separate breakout rooms, and there’s something for every function at Orlando’s most versatile meetings hotel.

Named a Cvent Top 75 Hotel in the U.S., Rosen Centre offers an extensive selection of award-winning catering and banquet services to meet the needs of the most discriminating palate. This expertise has earned them the reputation as one of Central Florida’s and the country’s premier meeting spaces for everything from an intimate board meeting to corporate retreats for multi-national companies.

Rosen Centre’s commitment to culinary excellence is showcased by artisan breads and pastries baked daily, sauces and soups made from scratch, and premium, locally sourced produce, meat and seafood. Since everything is made in house, the catering team is able to accommodate specific dietary needs, including vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free or low-sodium. “Healthier menus have become even more popular – especially gluten-free. This is something we can easily respond to,” said Rosen Centre Executive Chef Michael Rumplik, who began his catering career at the age of 16 and has been leading the hotel to culinary excellence -- including multiple M&C Gold Platter Awards.

The hotel’s catering menus offer an extensive variety of creative and tasty, and sometimes playful options including stations from a Grown-Up Mac & Cheese Station offering an adult twist on a childhood favorite to a Chef’s Station featuring Deconstructed Lasagna where guests are treated to personalized pastas created just for them.  Plated dinners are elegantly arranged and include Hangar Steak with Roasted Root Vegetables, Arugula Pesto and Garlic Infused Olive Oil.


Local, fresh fare is always on the menu no more so than in healthy options including House-made Granola with Local Honey, Almonds and a variety of Oats and salads featuring Florida Heirloom Tomato Salad with Herbed Goat Cheese.  Lunch or snack breaks featuring Rosen’s Perfect Pizza is always a popular healthy choice. With more than 3 million slices sold to date, this low-fat pizza with a honey wheat crust was developed by founder Harris Rosen himself.

Have time to linger for lunch? Enjoy an elegant served three-course meal in the ballroom or a refreshing fruit and salad stations by the pool. Take an afternoon ice cream break, complete with custom made ice cream using liquid nitrogen. It’s magical to watch and delicious to eat!

Executive Chef Michael Rumplik relies on a globally diverse culinary team to enhance creativity. “We pull from everyone’s strengths and cultural backgrounds to allow us to offer an incredibly extensive variety of menus,” he said. From themed buffets and smashed potato stations to Sushi displays and Slider Bars, the options are endless. And don’t forget dessert, including house made Key Lime pie, cheese cake lollipops and chocolate fondue, to name a few.


The relaxed, Caribbean atmosphere of Harry’s Poolside Bar & Grill makes it a top choice for a poolside gathering with built-in theming, with space for 60 at a seated event or up to 200 reception style, and up to 1,700 when including the scenic pool deck. Full beverage service is available with premium liquors and tropical cocktails. For a true taste of Florida that will leave a lasting impression, consider hosting a private event at the Everglades Restaurant, where guests dine under the watchful eye of tropical fish and manatee sculptures.


Whether you are hosting 10 guests or 3,000, the catering staff treats each event with highest level of excellence in food preparation, presentation and service. With 1,334 guestrooms including suites, an on-site spa, expansive shimmering pool and convenient location, the Rosen Centre is the perfect choice for your next meeting.
