Meeting planners hosting events at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando no longer have to lift a finger when they need some of their most pressing questions answered. They can simply say, “Alexa, Ask Rosen” to find out how many restaurants and bars there are onsite — 15 — or the size of the hotel’s largest ballroom — 95,000 square feet. Organizers can stay in-the-know with the new Ask Rosen skill for Amazon Alexa and created by Rosen Hotels & Resorts.
“We have something unique to offer planners in what we call ‘the Rosen Difference,’ qualities only an independent hotel company like ours can offer,” said Rosen Hotels & Resorts Vice President of Sales and Marketing Leslie Menichini, “like incredible flexibility, an unrivaled service standard, and continuous reinvestment in our properties, which includes creative new uses for technology, like our new, innovative Ask Rosen skill.”
In addition to Rosen Shingle Creek, the meetings tool — accessible via Alexa-enabled devices — is also available for Rosen Centre and Rosen Plaza. By using Ask Rosen, planners will have information at their disposal during the planning process — including stats and facts about F&B and amenity offerings, and distances to locations including the Orange County Convention Center and the Orlando International Airport — and will be better equipped to assist delegates with any questions once the event begins.
The devices are meant to help organizers cut red tape so they can focus on making their meetings memorable — which won’t be difficult at the recently revitalized AAA Four Diamond Rosen Shingle Creek. Planners will find 1,501 refurbished guest rooms and suites, as well as an updated grand lobby and onsite restaurants. New carpeting also now graces the hotel’s three ballrooms, including the column-free, 95,000-square-foot Gatlin Ballroom, the 60,000-square-foot Sebastian Ballroom, and the 40,000-square-foot Panzacola Ballroom.
In addition to updated interiors, Rosen Shingle Creek boasts a vibrant culinary scene, including onsite restaurants like Tobias Burgers & Brews, where attendees can sample specialty burgers and local craft beer in a cozy, pub-like environment, and Mi Casa Tequila Taqueria, serving authentic Mexican cuisine. Among the 15 restaurants, bars, and bistros, the luxury hotel boasts two AAA Four Diamond restaurants — A Land Remembered and Cala Bella. There’s also plenty for attendees to do in between breakout sessions and cocktail hours. Onsite, there’s an 18-hole championship golf course designed by the Arnold Palmer Design Co., a full-service spa, four outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, a nature trail, and more.
Not only will planners have the Ask Rosen skill to help guide them through their next event, but they’ll be supported by the Rosen Difference — a dedication to providing tailored, hands-on solutions for meeting planners.
