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.

Food & Beverage: Millennial Chefs Lead the Way

Led by Millennial chefs, hotels continue to foster sustainability, sourcing and wellness within their dining rooms and banquet spaces, and by all measures, this is responsible for an increase in their revenues. In many hotels, the food & beverage division contributes 50 per cent or more to hotel sales and they are currently experiencing double-digit growth. As a result, hotel owners are allocating an increasing amount of square footage for F&B operations. The biggest area of investment is in catering, which is thriving due to weddings, social events and business conferences. Hotels are also investing in on-site market or convenience stores that offer fresh/refrigerated foods, and buffet concepts also continue to expand. Other popular food trends include a rise of fermented offerings such as kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, kefir and pickles - all to produce the least processed food possible, and to boost probiotics to improve the immune system. Tea is also enjoying something of a renaissance. More people are thinking of tea with the same reverence as coffee due to its many varieties, applications and benefits. Craft tea blending, nitro tea on tap and even tea cocktails are beginning to appear on some hotel menus. Another trend concerns creating a unique, individualized and memorable experience for guests. This could be a small consumable item that is specific to a property or event, such as house-made snack mixes, gourmet popcorn, macaroons, or jars of house-made jams, chutneys, and mustards -all produced and customized in house. One staple that is in decline is the in-room minibar which seems to have fallen out of favor. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
