Rosen Hotels & Resorts in Orlando Announces Consolidation of Two International Drive Hotels

USA, Orlando, Florida. May 14, 2019

Rosen Hotels & Resorts has consolidated two of its adjoining hotels in Orlando's famed International Drive convention and tourist district, expanding amenities for guests and elevating the combined property with Rosen's award-winning service, the privately-owned hospitality company announced today. The 134-room Midpointe Hotel has become a 356-room property with the addition of 222 rooms at the former Clarion Inn & Suites at International Drive.

Acquired by Rosen Hotels & Resorts in late 2017, both properties are adjacent to the 1,334-room Rosen Centre, which features 150,000 square feet of versatile meeting and event space and is connected to the Orange County Convention Center via a covered pedestrian skybridge.

"Consolidating both properties under the Midpointe brand gave us a wonderful opportunity to combine services and deliver the extraordinary experience guests have come to expect from a Rosen hotel," said Harris Rosen, president and chief operating officer of Rosen Hotel & Resorts. "Plus, the location lets Midpointe guests enjoy the spectacular amenities of Rosen Centre while staying just steps away from the Orange County Convention Center."

Midpointe Hotel's name signifies its prime location midway between Orlando's famed theme parks and attractions. With recently enhanced guestrooms, it is an ideal hub for a convention or business trip or getaway. Conveniently located adjacent to Rosen Centre with its overhead pedestrian skybridge to the Orange County Convention Center's West Building, the hotel is across the street from the convention center's North South Building, just a short stroll from International Drive's shopping, dining and entertainment and just 12 minutes from Orlando International Airport.

Midpointe Hotel offers the perfect location to host all types of meetings and events from corporate gatherings, affiliate meetings due to its close proximity to the Orange County Convention Center, to a family event celebrating a special occasion. Flexible meeting space includes two meeting rooms and an executive boardroom.

Midpointe's 356 guestrooms include stylish patterned carpeting in muted gold tones complemented by soothing tan walls and bedding featuring crisp, white linens. Each guestroom features a mini refrigerator, a flat screen TV and complimentary in-room Wi-fi.

Amenities also include a fitness center, business center, two outdoor swimming pools, two hot tubs and complimentary parking. As a Universal Partner Hotel, Midpointe offers a lobby ticket desk for popular attractions and complimentary, scheduled shuttles to Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld Orlando and Aquatica (reservations required). There is never a resort fee.

Midpointe Hotel guests also enjoy access to the luxurious amenities of adjacent Rosen Centre, including a full-service spa and acclaimed restaurants, bars and lounges such as Everglades Restaurant, Harry's Poolside Bar & Grill, Café Gauguin, Banshoo Sushi Bar, Sam & Bubbe's and 98Forty Tapas & Tequila.

Sales & Marketing: Selling Experiences

There are innumerable strategies that Hotel Sales and Marketing Directors employ to find, engage and entice guests to their property, and those strategies are constantly evolving. A breakthrough technology, pioneering platform, or even a simple algorithm update can cause new trends to emerge and upend the best laid plans. Sales and marketing departments must remain agile so they can adapt to the ever changing digital landscape. As an example, the popularity of virtual reality is on the rise, as 360 interactive technologies become more mainstream. Chatbots and artificial intelligence are also poised to become the next big things, as they take guest personalization to a whole new level. But one sales and marketing trend that is currently resulting in major benefits for hotels is experiential marketing - the effort to deliver an experience to potential guests. Mainly this is accomplished through the creative use of video and images, and by utilizing what has become known as User Generated Content. By sharing actual personal content (videos and pictures) from satisfied guests who have experienced the delights of a property, prospective guests can more easily imagine themselves having the same experience. Similarly, Hotel Generated Content is equally important. Hotels are more than beds and effective video presentations can tell a compelling story - a story about what makes the hotel appealing and unique. A video walk-through of rooms is essential, as are video tours in different areas of a hotel. The goal is to highlight what makes the property exceptional, but also to show real people having real fun - an experience that prospective guests can have too. The June Hotel Business Review will report on some of these issues and strategies, and examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating them into their operations.
