When it comes to the perfect guest room, there are three things business travelers are looking for, according to Hotel Management’s guest rooms trends of 2018: functionality, simplicity, and technology. After a total renovation, all 1,334 guest rooms at Rosen Centre in Orlando, Florida, more than meet these goals. They are now more tech-friendly, connected, and comfortable than ever, giving your meeting attendees the ability to switch seamlessly between business and pleasure.
“We designed our new guest rooms to reflect the balance between form and function that is so important to our guests,” said Todd Frappier, director of sales and marketing at Rosen Centre. “Integrating the necessary technology in a calming, comfortable environment strikes that balance.”
Completed at the end of last year, the ultramodern renovation now showcases sleek and polished new furnishings, a calming color palette, and high-tech integrations to keep meeting attendees rested and recharged. They were updated to reflect the ultimate in spa-like calm and serenity — which is helpful after a long day of breakout sessions and networking events.
The guest rooms are painted a deep, rich teal, with touches of brushed nickel throughout the room, making it feel contemporary but cozy. Desks and dressers have been replaced with a streamlined, all-in-one desk-dresser combo, with matching pull-out ottoman. It provides a wide surface to spread out and get some work done in between events. Outlets and ports throughout the room make it easy to plug in anywhere and use multiple devices at once.
Meeting attendees will enjoy all of the easy-to-access technological integrations. Rosen Centre guests always have access to free Wi-Fi in their guestrooms and now can charge more devices all at once with the multi-outlet connectivity bar, which includes one Ethernet and two USB ports, located below a new wall-mounted 50” flat-screen TV. Additional outlets and USB ports are located on the desk lamps, headboard panels, and nightstand lamps. The king rooms also feature elegant chaise lounges with a convenient c-table, perfect for attendees that want to relax while getting some work done during their downtime.
With 150,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space and nine onsite dining options, Rosen Centre has the versatility and agility to work with planners to host any event they can dream up. The property boasts a 35,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom, an 18,000-square-foot Executive Ballroom, a 14,375-square-foot Junior Ballroom, and 35 breakout rooms. Event planners also gain that extra peace-of-mind with “the Rosen Difference” — an elevated level of service and dedication to the customer experience that only Florida’s largest independent hotelier can provide.
