ORLANDO (Jan. 23, 2015) – Orlando hotelier and philanthropist Harris Rosen, President & COO of Rosen Hotels & Resorts, received the Coretta Scott King A.N.G.E.L. Award at the 32nd Annual Salute to Greatness Awards Dinner presented by The King Center in Atlanta. The King Center, formally known as The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, was established in 1968 by Mrs. Coretta Scott King. The awards ceremony took place on Jan. 17, 2015 (in observance of the late Dr. King’s 86th birthday) at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Atlanta.

The awards event recognized just four honorees. The Salute to Greatness Award, one of the King Center’s highest honors, was awarded to former President Bill Clinton, the 42nd president of the United States, and to Bernard J. Tyson, chairman and CEO of Kaiser Permanente. The Coretta Scott King A.N.G.E.L. (Advancing Nonviolence through Generations of Exceptional Leadership) Award was given to Harris Rosen and to Aidan Thomas Hornaday, founder of the Aidan Cares Foundation. The award is given in honor of and in keeping with the spirit of the late Coretta Scott King and recognizes a youth or young adult and a youth organization/initiative which exemplifies exceptional leadership in the areas of peace, social justice and nonviolent social change. The honor was established and awarded for the first time in 2013.

Rosen was being recognized for his more than 20 year commitment to the Tangelo Park Program, a three-fold educational community service initiative within the once drug- and crime-ridden Tangelo Park neighborhood of Orlando. In 1992, as Rosen was planning his seventh property, Rosen Shingle Creek, he was struck with an overwhelming sense of gratitude for his many blessings and decided it was time to give back to his community. By 1993, he had created the Tangelo Park Program, a personally funded concept. His innovative program provides free preschool for every two-, three-, and four-year-old child living in the neighborhood and a full community college or four-year college, or a vocational or technical school scholarship for every graduating high school senior. In addition, the program provides a Neighborhood Center for Families where parents can take parenting courses and obtain counseling and other resources to help them become positive role models for their children.

When Rosen created the Tangelo Park Program, the community’s high school dropout rate was 43 percent higher than the national average. Not long after the program began, high school graduation rates soared with an almost zero dropout rate. To date, more than 280 young people have now attended college or vocational school. “I am so honored that the Tangelo Park Program has been recognized by The King Center and I am truly humbled to receive an award given in the spirit of Mrs. Coretta Scott King,” said Rosen. “I will be happy to accept the honor on behalf of the Tangelo Park community and especially all of the youngsters who have worked so hard over the past 20 years to better themselves through the gift of education.”

Established in 1968 by Mrs. Coretta Scott King, The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change (“The King Center”) has been a global destination, resource center and community institution for over a quarter century. Nearly a million people each year make pilgrimage to the National Historic Site to learn, be inspired and pay their respects to Dr. King’s legacy. Both a traditional memorial and programmatic nonprofit, the King Center was envisioned by its founder to be “no dead monument, but a living memorial filled with all the vitality that was his, a center of human endeavor, committed to the causes for which he lived and died.” That vision was carried out through educational and community programs until Mrs. King’s retirement in the mid-1990s, and today it is being revitalized.

Celebrating more than 40 years in business, Rosen Hotels & Resorts comprises nearly 6,500 guest rooms at seven Orlando hotels: three convention properties – Rosen Plaza, Rosen Centre and Rosen Shingle Creek, as well as four value-priced leisure properties – Rosen Inn International; Rosen Inn, closest to Universal; Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando; and Clarion Inn Lake Buena Vista.

ORLANDO (Nov. 14, 2014) – Orlando’s Rosen Shingle Creek is proud to announce that it has earned Three Palm Status in the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Green Lodging Program. The award-winning hotel has been designated a Two Palm property since 2008.

The voluntary initiative designates and recognizes lodging facilities that make a commitment to conserve and protect Florida’s natural resources, offering designations at four levels. The program’s environmental guidelines allow the hospitality industry to evaluate its operations, set goals and take specific actions to continuously improve environmental performance. To become designated, facilities must conduct a thorough property assessment and implement a specified number of environmental practices in five areas of sustainable operations: Communication and Education (Customers, Employees, Public); Waste Reduction, Reuse and Recycling; Water Conservation; Energy Efficiency; and Indoor Air Quality.

“We at Rosen Shingle Creek are proud to be named a Three Palm property and to demonstrate that environmental conservation and protection is not just a passing trend but a real priority for all of us at Rosen Hotels & Resorts,” said Leslie Menichini, VP of Sales and Marketing, Rosen Hotels & Resorts Convention Properties. “We started this process before DEP’s program began, and we plan to continue our efforts, exceeding the state’s standards, because it’s a cause to which we are deeply committed.”

To earn Three Palm status, the 1,501-room convention and leisure property implemented several new programs and practices, on top of its existing energy-saving policies. Among them, its staff gives tours to college students and groups, speaks at outside conferences to promote green business practices, and promotes green meetings to incoming convention groups. The hotel provides a “green suggestions” box at the associate cafeteria and has dedicated an environmental section in its facility newsletter, as well as enrolling in Green Destination Orlando, a hospitality advocacy committee. Additionally, Rosen Shingle Creek instituted a reduced packaging policy, uses refillable containers instead of single-use packets/containers, and prints all advertising, educational and promotional pieces on recycled paper.

In terms of facilities, the hotel installed photo sensors on toilets, urinals and faucets; installed tap flow controllers with auto shut-off; and uses final rinse water as pre-rinse water for subsequent cycles in its Milnor Tunnel energy-efficient washing machines. Rosen Shingle Creek uses biodiesel from used cooking oil, an onsite renewable energy power source, and conducts periodic thermal imaging to look for leakages. A daily inspection of laundry exhaust vents, grounds equipment and vehicles keeps the machines running efficiently. The hotel uses LED exit lighting and programmable thermostats for HVAC, and also provides preferred parking locations for guests and staff driving fuel efficient vehicles. Rosen Hotels & Resorts is committed to conservation efforts in all its properties. The associate medical center, Rosen Medical Center, A Place for Healing and Wellness, was built in 2012 according to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certified standards as outlined by the U.S. Green Building Council. In 2007, Rosen Shingle Creek, along with its sister properties, Rosen Plaza and Rosen Center, were among the first 50 properties – the top one percent in Florida – to receive One Palm designation. All three properties achieved Two Palm status the following year. The 800-room Rosen Plaza and 1,334-room Rosen Centre have retained their Two Palm lodging status.

Orlando’s Newest Luxury Hotel Recognized for Quality, Guest Service

ORLANDO (June 22, 2007) – The American Automobile Association (AAA), one of the country’s most respected authorities on travel and hospitality, has just awarded Orlando’s newest luxury hotel, Rosen Shingle Creek, with its prestigious Four-Diamond Award rating for 2008. The 1,500 room hotel, which opened Sept. 9, 2006, is one of Central Florida’s premier leisure and meetings destinations with more than 462,000 sq. ft. of meeting/event space. Situated on 230 pristine acres at the headwaters of the Florida Everglades, the breathtaking Spanish-revival style architecture evokes images of Florida’s first grand hotels at the turn of the century, while offering guests the ultimate in modern day convenience, service and hospitality.

“We are thrilled that AAA has recognized our vision, hard work and commitment to guest service by awarding Shingle Creek with the Four Diamond award,” said Harris Rosen, President and COO of Rosen Hotels & Resorts. “AAA’s trusted reputation as a travel authority brings an added peace of mind to our guests that they have chosen only the best accommodations during their visit to Orlando.”

To be considered for approval and rating by AAA, hotels and restaurants that meet AAA members’ basic hotel and restaurant requirements must first apply for an evaluation. If the application is accepted, an AAA evaluator will visit the establishment. Evaluations are unannounced to ensure that AAA professionals experience a hotel or restaurant just as a guest would. After a thorough inspection is conducted, establishments that meet AAA’s criteria become AAA Approved — indicating their ability to provide a quality experience for members. Next, each AAA Approved hotel and restaurant is assigned a AAA rating of one to five Diamonds, indicating the level of services and amenities provided.

According to AAA, the Four Diamond Award status, which was awarded to Rosen Shingle Creek, means that the property is “upscale in all areas,” with “accommodations (that) are refined and stylish (and) the physical attributes reflect enhanced quality throughout. The fundamental hallmarks at this level include an extensive array of amenities combined with a high degree of hospitality, service, and attention to detail.”

Rosen Shingle Creek boasts the onsite Shingle Creek Golf Club, an 18-hole, par 72 (7,228 yards) championship golf course named by Golfweek as One of America’s Top 40 New Courses for 2005, and One of Central Florida’s Top 10 Toughest Courses by Orlando Business Journal. Enhancing the course’s appeal is the Brad Brewer Golf Academy, which offers lessons and corporate/team building events. Brewer was recently named by Golf Magazine as a “Top 100 Teacher for 2007-2008.”

The hotel also offers twelve dining/lounging options, including fine dining Italian restaurant, Cala Bella, and the classic steakhouse, A Land Remembered. From late-night munchies at the 24-hour 18 Monroe Street Market to a poolside ice cream or evening cocktail, guests need never leave the spacious hotel to ease a craving.

Recreational activities abound at Shingle Creek, with four swimming pools, the 13,000 sq. ft. world-class Spa at Shingle Creek, with nine treatment rooms and a state-of-the-art Fitness Center. A video arcade and onsite babysitting facility keep kids entertained while parents dine or enjoy an afternoon of golf or spa treatments. Outdoor activities such as basketball, sand volleyball, tennis, nature trails and fishing offer plenty of ways to soak up some Florida sunshine.

When it comes to in-room relaxation, Shingle Creek has the corner on the market with spacious, 436 gross square foot guest rooms. A 32” flat screen TV with NXTV connectivity and in-room high-speed Internet connectivity keeps them plugged into work or personal e-mail. Plush robes, designer linens and first-class toiletries add to the environment of complete rest and relaxation. Those seeking even more space may choose to stay in one of the hotel’s 139 guest suites, complete with a beautifully appointed mini kitchen area, including a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker and serving/bar area with granite countertop.

Although Shingle Creek is a vacation unto itself, many come to Orlando specifically for its legendary theme parks. Just 10 minutes from Sea World and Universal Orlando, the hotel is a Destination Universal property, which means guests can purchase discounted tickets in the hotel lobby and enjoy complimentary scheduled transportation to both parks. The hotel is just a mile from the I-Drive tourist area and approximately 15 miles from Orlando renowned attractions.

#1 – The course begins with a 417 yard (from all the way back) Par 4, which has a slight dogleg to the left. Hitting towards Shingle Creek, the tee shot requires a slight draw to a wide fairway guarded by a water hazard on the left. A good drive should leave the player with a mid-iron to a green protected to the left and long by the sand. A nice easy starting hole

#2 – This intimidating Par 5 can play 559 yards from the back tees and will challenge even the longest of hitters as a water hazard closely guards the right side of the driving area. A good drive will leave the player a generous lay up area between 4 bunkers on either side of the fairway. A long hitter does have a chance to hit the green in two shots by running the ball up through the approach, but does have bunkers surrounding the rest of the putting surface to contend with. After a good lay up, a wedge can be played to a smallish green-sloped back to front. Ideally, the player will want to keep the ball short of the pin leaving an uphill putt.

#3 – One of the tightest Par 4’s on the course is not long at 399 yards but demands a tee shot in the fairway. The fairway is shaped with willow and cypress trees to the right along a lake and bunkers left. A conservative play off of the tee may be prudent (perhaps with a fairway metal) as any decent tee shot in the fairway should leave only an 8 or 9 iron into a green. Pay attention! This hole is very pleasing to the eye. Don’t let it distract you from performing the task at hand.

#4 – The ideal tee shot on this straightaway 540 yard Par 5 is hit at the 27-story Peabody Hotel. Two large fairway bunkers frame the tee shot along a generous fairway. Few players will have a chance to go for two on this hole but, if they are inclined, numerous cypress, magnolias and a waterway that protect the whole left side of this hole may gobble up an over aggressive shot. Most players should consider laying up to the right leaving a short pitch to a two-tiered green sloping from the player’s right to left. Played conservatively, this hole could offer a great birdie opportunity.

#5 – Easily the most difficult Par 3 on the course the fifth can play from 222 yards from the championship tee to 107 yards from the forward tee. The subtly sloped green is guarded right by a huge bunker short, sure to catch any miss-struck shot. In addition, water with a steep bank protects the entire left side of the hole. The difficulty in hitting the green with a mid to long iron is in that the green is somewhat shallow and two bunkers are placed long. You must control the spin of your ball to have a birdie putt. Take a Par 3 here and walk quietly to the next tee.

#6 – This straightaway Par 4 is the longest on the course and can play up to 475 yards from the back tee. Oak trees frame the tee shot left and right. Also, four fairway bunkers on the right and grass bunkers to the left guard this fairway. Even a good tee shot should leave a long iron into a green that is open in the front but has well placed greenside bunkers both left and right. The green is large but does have a ridge running through the middle of it forcing the player to be below the hole for a makeable putt.

#7 – This Par 3 will play 159 yards from the regular tees that has no sand bunkers and a green with subtle slope from back to front. This hole does have numerous grass swales that guard the front of the green and will make it difficult to run the ball up. Make sure you take enough club as chipping from these grass swales could be challenging.

#8 – This 387-yard Par 4 could surely put a lump in any player’s throat. Water guards the entire hole to the right with one HUGE fairway bunker strategically placed on the left in the landing area. The player should consider using a shorter club for accuracy because being in the fairway is a must. A good tee shot would leave a short iron into a green that is heavily guarded by four bunkers. The back-right hole location may be additionally challenging, as the player must carry their second shot over water and sand to get the ball close.

#9 – The front nine finishes up with a 433-yard dogleg left Par 4 that looks benign – but isn’t. The tee shot sets up beautifully with a bunker at the end of the fairway as a perfect target. In addition, a 3 pot bunkers and a water hazard stretch down the left side of the landing area, sure to grab an over aggressive drive. The prudent play is to the right center of the fairway leaving a mid to short iron back over water which cuts in front of the green. The player must not only deal with clearing the water but must also confront a large bunker that wraps around the green short and left. Notably, the green has four levels and is easily the most sloped on the course. The player must put the ball on the proper plateau to have a make-able putt. Watch your speed; three putts are not out of the question.

#10 – The back 9 gets off to simple start with a short Par 4 and a wide fairway. The perfect line off of the tee is the 24-story, Rosen Centre Hotel. The player is challenged to carry two grass bunkers with the tee shot that frame the fairway. A good tee shot will leave a short iron into a deep but narrow green. You better score well on this hole, because the course is about to get much tougher.

#11 – This Par 4 can play as long as 418 yards from the back tee. The tee shot is guarded by three large fairway bunkers to the right, and trees on the left. A tee shot in the fairway is a must, to hit this shallow and wide green, which is nestled between 4 bunkers. In addition, a pond guards the green – short and left.

#12 – From the back tees this Par 5 is 599 yards with a waterway running down the left of the hole from the landing area past the green. The fairway is wide but the water left is daunting. Tiger Woods would have a hard time hitting this green in two, so a lay up shot will be required by most players. The lay up area is about 100 yards short of the green and is framed by two large bunkers on the left. The green runs away from the player left to right and is guarded by a cavernous bunker. You won’t be able to run this one up!

#13 – This slight dogleg left Par 4 has no bunkers, BUT the tee shot demands accuracy as the fairway has waterways both left and right. The second shot will be played most days with a middle iron as the hole can stretch to 400 yards from the Tour tees. A quality iron shot is required as steeply sloped grass bunkers surround the green. If the player can hit the green he will be rewarded with a reasonable birdie putt on a relatively flat green.

#14 – You’re heart will be thumping as this is the most eye-opening tee shot of the day. Eleven fairway bunkers stare you in the face on the tee at this 448-yard Par 4. These bunkers are deceiving as they are intimidating but are easily carried with a solid strike and the fairway width is extremely generous. A good tee shot will leave a middle iron for most players into a large green guarded by six deep-faced bunkers and a canal to the right.

#15 – The first par 3 on the course can play up to 197 yards and plays downhill to a very wide and deep green that may have numerous hole locations. There is a canal that guards the green short and a lake over the green may catch the player who takes too much club. Bailout to the right if you are lacking confidence!

#16 – This slight dogleg right Par 5 will play less than 500 yards from all tees and offers the best chance for a birdie on the back 9. The fairway is protected by a lake on the right but is nearly 45 yards wide. This hole offers even the most novice of players the opportunity for an eagle putt as the approach allows ample space for the ball to run onto the two-tiered green. Our finish is very difficult so take advantage of this one!

#17 – This beautiful Par 3 can range from 220 to 137 yards. The view of the Resort behind the green frames the hole brilliantly as Mr. Harman has guarded this putting surface with a large bunker long, in addition to more sand and a water hazard on the right. The green is sloped from the back right to the front left, and favors a fade, as the bailout area is short and left. What a view!

#18 – Playing 443 yards from the back tee this dogleg right Par 4 demands accuracy off the tee for a good angle into the green. The fairway width is generous but is protected by three large bunkers that will make the approach shot difficult as the green is long and narrow. A good tee shot should leave a mid iron into the green although an approach left or long will find sand or water. An approach shot short or right will find a large bunker and create a challenging up and down. Accuracy is a must on this hole.

The design objective was to make the play “fair” while keeping it an exceptional test of skill. To accomplish this goal, Harman incorporated undulating fairways, interconnecting waterways and a backdrop of dense oak and pines into his design. The effort has clearly been deemed a success. The course has been ranked as one of the toughest courses in Orlando, according to the Orlando Business Journal. It also received the prestigious “Gold Tee” award from M&C magazine, “Greens of Distinction” award from Corporate & Incentive Travel magazine and is home to one of the top 100 pro shops according to Golf Business magazine.

Brewer is consistently named by Golf Magazine as “One of the Top 100 Instructors.” Group programs, discounts, and preferred tee times can also be arranged for hotel guests and convention attendees.

The Soothing Spa at Shingle Creek

For a more rejuvenating retreat, there’s the full-service, 13,000 square foot Spa at Shingle Creek, featuring nine treatment rooms and an amazing menu of soothing services, as well as a state-of-the-art Fitness Center. The spa has been developed not just as an amenity for leisure and business guests, but is a destination unto itself, a one-of-a-kind spa experience rooted in the area’s rich history, the surrounding landscape and the traditions of Florida’s indigenous people.

The Spa at Shingle Creek’s Creekside signature treatments draw on the restorative powers of the area’s indigenous fauna and are reflective of Rosen Shingle Creek’s Florida roots, incorporating citrus and cedar scents. Additional services such as the Ocoee Body Mask and the Calusa Cocoon incorporate aspects from their namesake Native American tribes. Spa packages include 2-hour, 1/2 day, Full day, Signature, Girl’s Getaway, Wedding and Teen Packages.

Like the rest of Rosen Shingle Creek, the architecture and interior design of The Spa at Shingle Creek was developed in harmony with the natural surroundings, incorporating dark woods and a palette of rich earth tones that are a reflection of the lush vegetation and even Shingle Creek itself, headwaters of the Florida Everglades.

Also available is a state-of-the-art Fitness Center with cardiovascular equipment and free weights.

Adventurous Activities

Guests looking for recreation of another sort will have myriad options to choose from. Nature fans will likely want to venture out and immerse themselves in the fantastic Florida surroundings. The hotel’s robust eco-tourism offerings include nature trails for hiking, walking and birding, plus fishing all against the magnificent backdrop off the legendary Shingle Creek.

More outdoor fun takes place on our two-lighted tennis courts, sand volleyball court and swimming pools, including a lap pool, family pool, kiddie wading pool and adult quiet pool. Several hot tubs are also available.

Those who desire something more laid back and indoors will gravitate to our high-tech video game room featuring the latest arcade games—open late at night for serious gamers.


No hotel of this caliber would be complete without an incredible selection of dining options. Rosen Shingle Creek is no exception. From fine dining to poolside munchies, every dish is sure to delight.

Two fine dining restaurants were developed to satisfy two decidedly different tastes. For those in search of a quiet evening, a hearty cabernet and a succulent steak, A Land Remembered Steakhouse will satisfy that craving. Named after Patrick Smith’s revered novel, immortalizing Florida’s rich history and landscapes, this restaurant is being talked about as the area’s newest legendary steakhouse, located in the Golf Clubhouse. Cala Bella™ (“Beautiful Creek”) provides a decidedly different, yet equally impressive menu. This elegant Italian bistro is the hotel’s signature restaurant, boasting a magnificent private dining room (seats up to 30), a brilliantly stocked wine cellar, and presentation cooking bar where individuals can comfortably dine alone or enjoy the chefs’ companionship as well as their culinary delights.

Guests in search of a more casual dining experience need only head over to Café Osceola & Osceola Bar. With its Spanish revival décor and stunning views through floor to ceiling windows, this buffet restaurant, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, is an excellent choice. The new Tobias Flats & Watering Hole features a delightful take on flatbreads and unique recipes for lunch and dinner, while Banrai Sushi is open for dinner featuring traditional sushi, signature rolls, specialty sakes and inspired cocktails. In keeping with the Rosen tradition, the 18 Monroe Street Market offers guests a 24-hour restaurant with quick snacks and quick-to-order meals available for dine-in or take out. Smoooth Java™, located in the main lobby, is the destination of choice for anyone in search of superb coffee, smoothies or pastries. And if all these options still aren’t enough, Rosen Shingle Creek also provides 24-hour in-room dining service.

For guests looking to quench their thirst, Rosen Shingle Creek offers several choices. Bella’s Quiet Bar, located within Cala Bella, is the ideal setting for a before or after dinner drink. Headwaters Lounge™, in the lobby, is centrally located and offers a great environment for gathering with friends, colleagues or even clients. Cat-Tails Pool Bar & Grille is pure paradise—a place to kick back, relax and enjoy a frozen concoction, an ice cold Rosen Hotels & Resorts’ Alligator Drool beer (the company’s own micro-brewed signature libation) or even a bite. Speaking of frozen treats, The Creek Ice Creamery serves double scoops, sundaes, and yes, more than thirty flavors.

“At the end of the day, it’s all about the service,” Harris Rosen explained. “We’ve incorporated every comfort and convenience we could think of, but if a single guest thinks of something that is missing, our team will move mountains to satisfy that guest’s needs. That’s the real mark of a Rosen property.”


While Rosen Shingle Creek may be Harris Rosen’s crowning glory in terms of his hospitality career, he has become renowned as much for his philanthropy and good will as his guest rooms and spas.

Rosen, a 1961 graduate of the School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University rose through the ranks of the hospitality industry, working along the way in senior management for the Hilton Hotel Corporation and the Disney Company in California before coming to Central Florida to start his own company. Upon arriving in the Orlando area, Rosen almost immediately began setting roots.

While growing from 256 rooms to more than 6,300 rooms, the company that bears his name has remained, unwaveringly, a standard-bearer of service, reflecting the influence of Rosen’s early positions at such esteemed properties as the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.

Throughout his career, Rosen has believed that his role is not just to conduct business in the community, but to invest in it. Toward that end, 1993 was a milestone year; for that was the year he started the Tangelo Park Pilot Program.

“My pledge was that every two, three and four-year-old would be able to go to preschool at no expense to their parents,” Rosen explained, “and that for every youngster who was accepted to a public college in the state of Florida, we would pay his or her tuition, room, board, books, and travel.”

Desde su creación, el programa Tangelo Park ha proporcionado más de 200 becas universitarias, y las tasas de deserción escolar pasó de 25% en 1993 a sólo el 6% en 2004. Rosen también ha donado más de $ 22 millones a la Universidad de Florida Central para la creación de una escuela de clase mundial de gestión de la hospitalidad y de involucrarse en proyectos tan diversos como "Agua para Haití" y "El Programa de la estatua de bronce" en Bethune-Cookman Colegio. Después de cuatro distinguidos décadas en la industria de la hospitalidad, Harris Rosen ya no es simplemente un hotelero; que es, de hecho, un modelo a seguir.

Desde Cattle Barons de convenciones: Rosen Shingle Creek Honores Historia del Área Mientras Que atienden a los huéspedes de hoy

Kit de prensa

Upon visiting the new AAA Four Diamond Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, most guests first find themselves entranced by a magnificent hotel with an astonishing 462,000 sq. ft. of meeting/event space. They are amazed by the hotel’s exceptional array of high-end amenities, including a luxurious 13,000-square-foot Spa at Shingle Creek and the award-winning Shingle Creek Golf Club. But those who look a little deeper will discover something even more intriguing. They will discover the hotel’s roots—a tribute to the glory days of the Florida frontier, an homage to the area’s spectacular natural landscape, and even a reference to the golden age of luxury hotels in Florida.

The Importance of The Creek. The History of Its Name.

Rosen Shingle Creek rises majestically from a spectacular 230-acre parcel of land, boasting a quintessential Florida landscape. It is this land that, literally and figuratively, provides the foundation for the hotel.

Harris Rosen, founder and president of the award-winning Rosen Hotels & Resorts, elaborates, “It all started in about 2000, when I began to seriously consider developing a new hotel property. We investigated a number of sites in Central Florida and finally honed in on one. What we liked most about this particular spot was its location and the fact that it was a lovely wooded site with many trees—pines and oaks—and wildlife.” Rosen says that he fell in love with the site instantly and decided on the spot to purchase it, but it would be several days before he could take a closer look at the land he had acquired.

“A few days after the purchase,” Rosen continues, “I took a helicopter flight over the site and viewed it from a different perspective. In the air, I discovered a little stream meandering through the property on the eastern most border heading due south. I asked the helicopter pilot if he knew anything about this little stream and he said, no. When we landed, I began to make inquiries about the little waterway and discovered, much to my surprise, that it was actually Shingle Creek, the very headwaters to Florida’s famous Everglades.”

Soon, Rosen discovered more about the history of the region. He learned that, long before businessmen and vacationers began venturing to this area, the land surrounding Shingle Creek was home to the Seminole Indians before being claimed by settlers in the early 1820s. In fact, it was this group of hearty pioneers who discovered that the area’s abundant cypress trees were not only beautiful, but also useful in the construction of their new homesteads. These settlers harvested the trees for building material and transported them down the creek to be used primarily as roof shingles. That, of course, is how they came to call the pristine waterway, “Shingle Creek.”

A Growing Community—In the Late 1800s.

The first settlement in the region emerged just east of the creek, adjacent to a military trail that served as the first travel route between present day Sanford and Tampa. At first, the settlement, also called Shingle Creek, was home only to the sawmill where the shingles were made. But growth was inevitable. The first trading post was built at a low water crossing point just steps away from where Rosen Shingle Creek sits today, and, over the course the next few decades, a thriving community emerged with active commerce along the lush, cypress-lined banks. When the Shingle Creek settlement peaked in the early 1900s, it included a train depot and general store, as well as the first church and post office in Osceola County.

Anxious to learn more about the harsh life of Central Florida’s early pioneers, Rosen picked up Patrick D. Smith’s novel, A Land Remembered. The book made a deep impression on Rosen.

“So precious is Patrick’s book,” Rosen says, “that we have dedicated our entire Shingle Creek Hotel to it.” In fact, the novel, which tells the story of how, over the course of three generations, the MacIvey family lifts itself from dirt-poor Crackers to wealthy real estate tycoons, can be read as a striking parallel to the life of Rosen himself, who emerged from a childhood in the poor lower east side of New York City to become the successful hotelier that he is today. Rosen Shingle Creek’s signature restaurant “A Land Remembered” is named after the novel, and Rosen dreams of one day forging a 140-mile wilderness trail from the creek all the way south to Lake Okeechobee. “And,” Rosen says, “we shall name it The Patrick D. Smith Trail, in honor of the author of the most wonderful book, “A Land Remembered.”

Renaissance of A Region.

In addition to memorializing the region’s rich history and hearty pioneers, Rosen was committed to showcasing the area’s natural beauty, as well.

When he first purchased the 250 acres of land along the Shingle Creek, Rosen marveled at the abundant native flowers and plants, and he envisioned making these natural wonders a focal point of the hotel inside and out. Rich with dense oaks, towering pines and majestic cypress trees, this site, Rosen felt, captured the essence of Florida’s natural magnificence. After donating 20 acres to the University of Central Florida for the Rosen College of Hospitality Management, Rosen committed to emphasizing the natural beauty of the area everywhere possible.

All along the property, guests can walk amongst native plants and vegetation, including lady palms, bamboo, pygmy date palms and more. Inside, the guest rooms are decorated with original framed photographs that depict the meadows, streams and flowers of the Shingle Creek area. These breathtaking images, which capture a wide array of species including Pink Irises, Crown of Thorns and Air Plants, were captured by Garritt Toohey, who at the time was Vice President of Rosen Hotels. (Toohey has since retired.)

Rosen Shingle Creek’s ballrooms and meeting spaces further reflect the importance of Florida’s natural wonders in the concept of the hotel. Each room honors the state’s magnificent lakes, rivers and landmarks with names like Wekiwa, St. Johns, Suwannee, Butler and Sebastian./p>

Today, more than a century after the original settlement was established around Shingle Creek, this remarkable waterway and the vibrant region that surrounds it are again the epicenter of an enthralling community.

“I wanted to create an enduring legacy with this hotel,” Rosen explained. “A legacy not just to me or this company, but to the Florida I know and love, to the original pioneers who believed in the potential of this area and were true survivors. Rosen Shingle Creek embodies the spirit of the real, authentic Florida in every regard.”

Rosen Shingle Creek-Comenzó con una visión, que terminó con una obra maestra

Kit de prensa

Cada aspecto de la nueva AAA Four Diamond Rosen Shingle Creek-desde el Mediterráneo florece a la forma en la fachada parece perfectamente enredado en los alrededores tropicales-fue diseñado para ofrecer a los huéspedes de convenciones y de ocio una experiencia sin igual. Al Rosen Shingle Creek, cada detalle arquitectónico es un reflejo de la época de oro de los hoteles de Florida, mientras que el hotel en sí incorpora casi todas las comodidades modernas imaginables.

"Mi visión era crear un hotel que rivalizaba con los hoteles legendarios este estado es famosa," declaró Harris Rosen, fundador y presidente de los galardonados Rosen Hotels & amp; Hoteles.

Uno de los aspectos más emocionantes de Rosen Shingle Creek es la forma en que el diseño mejora la calidad de la luz que entra en casi todos los espacios públicos.

Otro detalle llamativo es la entrada a la torre del hotel, que presenta una de 80 pies por 80 pies puerta cochera adornado por una fuente de múltiples niveles.

El hotel también dispone de vestíbulo transporte secundario junto a la monumental "Rotunda", que sirve como punto de referencia para los clientes que vienen de la torre del hotel de los grandes salones de baile. Este espacio impresionante, con sus techos de varios niveles forradas de madera, se eleva más de 70 metros de altura que incorpora capas de ventanas clearstory.

Estas diseño extraordinarias ideas jugar hasta la luz natural, la utilización de las características de diseño dramáticas para mejorar la acogida experiencia-no se producen por casualidad.

Rosen Hotels & amp; Resorts ha tenido una relación de larga ejecución con Arquitectos HHCP sede en Florida Maitland,. Estas dos entidades prominentes de Florida Central han colaborado en otros cuatro proyectos, tres de los principales hoteles hoteles. Y los resultados han sido consistentemente excepcional.

Tom Hurley, uno de los socios originales de la empresa de 31 años galardonada arquitectura antigua fue el diseñador jefe de Rosen Shingle Creek y proclamó que "todos los proyectos que hemos trabajado con Rosen ha sido una experiencia maravillosa. Pero éste, en particular, sabíamos tenía el potencial de trascender todo lo que habíamos hecho juntos antes ".

Debido a la increíble alcance de este proyecto, Rosen volvió hacia otro socio confiable para la contratación y construcción-Welbro Building Corporation.

El equipo entendió temprano en la escala del proyecto en el que estaban trabajando.

Ese viaje le dio al equipo la oportunidad de profundizar realmente en lo que imaginaban para este nuevo proyecto. La idea de Rosen era un tema del Mediterráneo ", un renacimiento italiano con connotaciones árabes", dijo Hurley. "Por lo tanto, tomamos esa idea y desafiamos a nosotros mismos para que sea tan bueno como podría ser."

"La primera vez que imaginé el Rosen Shingle Creek, me puse mis metas altas", explicó Rosen. "Estudié los hoteles que yo siempre había admirado. Examiné los hoteles de renombre, con sus historias coloridas, reputaciones envidiables y nombres muy conocidos. Y decidí que mi próximo hotel, este hotel, tiene que ser de ese calibre ".

Al regresar a la Florida Central, el equipo realizó estudios en cuatro sitios diferentes antes de decidirse por la propiedad Shingle Creek. Pero una vez que este sitio en particular se hizo disponible, Rosen sabía que era ideal. La historia y la geografía de la tierra se fundieron a la perfección con su idea de rendir homenaje a colorido pasado de la Florida.

"Lo que más nos gustó de este lugar en particular," Rosen elaborado ", fue su ubicación y el hecho de que era un sitio boscoso encantadora con muchos árboles-pinos y encinas-y la vida silvestre. Me decidí por el lugar para comprar estas tierras ".

"A los pocos días," Rosen continuó: "Yo tomé un vuelo en helicóptero sobre el sitio y ver desde una perspectiva diferente.

Hurley acordó que el sitio sería ideal.

Mismo Rosen publicó numerosos retos para el equipo de diseño. Él inició la discusión de la creación de un salón de baile sin columnas masiva. El reto empujó al equipo de diseño para pensar más allá de la tecnología de la construcción ordinaria y empujado, también. El 95.000 pies cuadrados de salón Gatlin resultante es uno de los mayores salones de baile sin columnas en los Estados Unidos.

Rosen Shingle Creek también incluye tres salas de reuniones de la firma que ofrecen a sus clientes acceso a una gran zona de césped exterior que se utilizará para eventos especiales. Una de estas reuniones, incluso cuenta con una terraza superior que se utilizará para eventos cóctel pre-función de lo que los huéspedes pueden entonces descender una escalera monumental al banquete a continuación.

"Esta es la tercera (aquí es donde decimos tercero y me preguntaba sobre el número) gran hotel de convenciones que hemos diseñado con Rosen, así que obviamente hay una relación fuerte allí", dijo Hurley.

Rosen se siente de manera similar sobre el trabajo con HHCP, "En primer lugar, estos tipos son los arquitectos de clase mundial, con experiencia, con conocimientos y lleno de grandes ideas.

Hurley comentó que una cosa que hizo que el proceso único para su equipo era cómo Rosen permitió a varios miembros del personal del hotel se involucren-y no sólo en el nivel ejecutivo.

"Creo que lo que me sorprende más," Hurley llegó a la conclusión, "es qué tan cerca el final Rosen Shingle Creek es a los dibujos conceptuales originales. El personaje ha verdaderamente permanecido igual ".

Mismo Rosen se hace eco del sentimiento: "Yo sé que me puse mis metas altas cuando por primera vez imaginé este hotel. Pero lo que nunca podría haber imaginado es que el producto final superaría en realidad mis expectativas. Nunca he estado tan orgulloso de un proyecto comercial como lo estoy de Shingle Creek ".

Mientras Rosen Shingle Creek continúa acumular excelentes críticas, su éxito puede ser fácilmente remontarse a una cosa-el proceso de colaboración. Como Hurley y Rosen ambos reconocen, este logro es un reflejo de todos los miembros del equipo de llegar a la mesa con una visión compartida y valores comunes y siendo dirigido por uno de los equipos más importantes de hospitalidad en el mundo.

El Spa en Shingle Creek - Inspirado por los nativos de la Florida, vigorizante para los clientes actuales

Kit de prensa

From its architecture to its cuisine, Florida’s unique personality bears the unmistakable influence of the Spanish and Native American people who have called this popular peninsula home. Likewise, the AAA Four Diamond Rosen Shingle Creek draws inspiration from and pays homage to these original Floridians, especially in the signature style and services of the 13,000 sq. ft, nine-room Spa at Shingle Creek and Fitness Center.

The Spa at Shingle Creek has been developed not just as an amenity for leisure and business guests at the 1,500-room hotel. It is a destination unto itself, a one-of-a-kind spa experience rooted in the area’s rich history, the surrounding landscape and the traditions of Florida’s indigenous people. Like the rest of Rosen Shingle Creek, the architecture and interior design of The Spa at Shingle Creek was developed in harmony with the natural surroundings, incorporating dark woods and a palette of rich earth tones that are a reflection of the lush vegetation and even Shingle Creek itself, headwaters of the Florida Everglades.

While searching to develop The Spa at Shingle Creek’s unique personality, Rosen Shingle Creek’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing Leslie Menichini immersed herself in the history of Florida’s Native American people. What she discovered was that the cultures of the Spanish and Native Americans were greatly intertwined in Central Florida and throughout the state.

By the late 1600s, the Spanish had set up a chain of missions extending westward past Tallahassee, where the Apalachee Indians were settled. While the native groups died out fairly quickly after the arrival of the Spanish, many of their traditions lived on, and a few of their names were passed on through oral tradition and eventually written down. In an effort to honor these early Floridians, the hotel decided to name the spa’s nine treatment rooms after the Native Americans. Today, those rooms are called Sabacola, Sawokli, Tawasa, Chatot, Timucuan, Apalachee, Seminole, Cherokee and Tocobaqo. These names are Native American tribal names or titles of important chiefs or village leaders.

The hotel found this research so inspiring that he even encouraged his team to develop treatments and services that reflected Central Florida’s Native American History. Two of those services are the Ocoee Body Mask and the Calusa Cocoon. “Ocoee,” Menichini says, “is Cherokee meaning ‘place where the passion flower is found,’ and we thought was an ideal name for a rejuvenating spa treatment.”

The Calusa Indians were often referred to as The Shell People and utilized shells as tools, weapons, art, and jewelry, and also incorporated algae, seaweeds and oils from the sea into tribal ceremonies believing in their healing properties. That was the inspiration for developing the Calusa Cocoon, a relaxing and hydrating body treatment incorporates restorative oils, a warm body wrap and hydrating mini-facial.

The Spa at Shingle Creek’s signature treatments draw on the restorative powers of the area’s indigenous fauna and are reflective of Rosen Shingle Creek’s Florida roots, incorporating citrus and cedar scents in the signature salt scrub, body lotion, body butter and body spritz, while indulging guests in the warm, woodsy feel of nearby Shingle Creek. In fact, these same cedar and citrus scents are also found in Rosen ShingleCreek’s in-room amenities including shampoos, conditioners, lotions and body wash. The Spa at Shingle Creek’s signature treatments include:

  • The Creekside Citrus and Cedar Body Revitalizer—A purifying cleanser, a stimulating exfoliation, and energizing moisture treatment that soothes and softens the skin. This full body treatment leaves the skin luminous, supple, and revitalized.
  • The Creekside Citrus and Cedar Body Revitalizer—A purifying cleanser, a stimulating exfoliation, and energizing moisture treatment that soothes and softens the skin. This full body treatment leaves the skin luminous, supple, and revitalized.
  • The Creekside Citrus and Cedar Fitness Facial™—This high-performance treatment, exclusive to The Spa, utilizes botanical and aromatherapy-based products. Each facial is customized, leaving guests looking and feeling fantastic.
  • The Creekside Citrus and Cedar Manicure—This deluxe treatment includes an exfoliation that leaves hands soft and smooth, but also invigorated.
  • The Creekside Citrus and Cedar Pedicure–This treatment utilizes energizing oil, salts with mineral and essential oils, followed by a massage with hydrating body butter and a light mist for additional moisture and refreshment.

Menichini describes The Spa at Shingle Creek at Shingle Creek as an oasis. “The warm atmosphere and personal attention,” he says, “transport guests into a calm, relaxed state. There is a transformation that takes place here. Stress is relieved and inner beauty comes to the surface.”

In addition to the signature treatments, The Spa at Shingle Creek offers an eclectic and enticing menu of services that range from the sublime to the exotic. Guests can even choose from eleven distinct massages, including:

  • The Native Creek Stone Massage, combining a healing human touch with hot stone therapy. Native Americans believe that the body and soul is one with the earth. Heated basalt stones are placed on the body in a pattern representing direction, color, animals, and life cycles for body balancing.
  • The Creekside Citrus and Cedar Massage, a full body and scalp massage, which incorporates White Cedar, Spruce and Lime oils to deliver an unforgettable experience.
  • Aroma Soul Massage, a luxurious treatment that combines the therapeutic benefits of touch and smell.
  • Mother-to-Be Massage

Also available to overnight or day guests is a full menu of body treatments, facials, nail care, hair and salon services, and a 3,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art Fitness Center. But Menichini is especially excited about The Spa at Shingle Creek’s many packages. “These packages are a terrific way to immerse yourself in the full spa experience,” she says. “They are a great way to sample a variety of treatments and pamper yourself from head to toe or escape for an afternoon if your spouse is in business meetings.”

Spa packages include 2-hour, 1/2 day, Full day, Signature, Girl’s Getaway, Wedding and Teen Packages. The Spa at Shingle Creek’s most popular package is the six-hour Creekside Citrus and Cedar Signature Experience, which includes a massage, facial, body revitalizer, manicure, pedicure and spa lunch. “Our wedding packages,” Menichini exclaims, “are also sure to be tremendously popular. Few things bring a wedding party together like a morning at the spa.”

Menichini says that The Spa at Shingle Creek was always envisioned as one of the hotel’s gems. “The Spa at Shingle Creek plays a vital role in the whole hotel experience,” Menichini says. “But what’s most exciting is that our spa offers services that are only available here. Like every other aspect of the hotel, our signature services, are a reflection of the history, geography and natural beauty of this part of the state. Only at Rosen Shingle Creek can a guest indulge in an Orange Blossom Facial or Cypress Salt Glow. These are one-of-a-kind experiences.”

Menichini is also quick to point out that The Spa is not just for women. There are many services specifically developed for men, whether to relieve stress, rejuvenate sore muscles after a long day of golf or simply for the pure indulgence of a great massage, facial, manicure or men’s pedicure. The Spa features Sonya Dakar products for men and women.

Looking back on the evolution of The Spa at Shingle Creek, Menichini expresses how thrilled he is with how it has evolved—from the vision she and his team shared with Harris Rosen, president and COO of Rosen Hotels & Resorts, to the reality that it is today. “The spa is far more than an amenity for guests. It will be a destination unto itself and a hit with locals, too, because of its intimate size and the personal attention that each guest receives.”

Occupying a 230-acre site along Shingle Creek, the headwaters of the Florida Everglades, the 1,500-room Rosen Shingle Creek offers 462,000 sq. ft. of meeting/event space, championship golf and an array of nature-focused activities, including hiking and seasonal fishing.

Rosen Shingle Creek is the newest addition to the Rosen Hotels & Resorts group, which currently owns and operates seven award-winning properties in the Orlando destination market. The Shingle Creek Golf Club opened for play in December 2003. For more information about the Rosen Shingle Creek, please visit or call (866) 996-9339.

Guests Find Culinary Excellence Around Every Bend At Rosen Shingle Creek

ORLANDO — While most guests are initially drawn to Rosen Shingle Creek for its luxurious appointments, its turn-of-the-century Spanish revival architecture, and Rosen Hotels’ reputation for impeccable guest service — not to mention its highly acclaimed championship golf course — the hotel’s diverse array of full-service and convenience dining options and the culinary prowess of its skilled chefs quickly turn an already incredible stay into a truly unforgettable experience.

With twelve dining and refreshment choices ranging from a fine-dining Italian bistro and a classic steakhouse to a 24-hour NY-style Market and an ice cream parlor, guests seeking a truly relaxing stay need never leave the walls of the grand facility. “At the end of the day, it’s all about service,” Harris Rosen explains. “We’ve incorporated every comfort and convenience we could think of. Whether our guests are in search of a quiet evening to enjoy a hearty cabernet and a succulent steak, a fine-dining bistro experience, or that unique signature libation, the restaurants and watering holes are sure to please.”

And, says Rosen, if by chance a guest is looking for something not offered at Rosen Shingle Creek, the staff will move mountains to satisfy that guest’s needs — the real mark of a Rosen property.

Ensuring the hotel makes its mark on the Orlando area culinary scene is Executive Chef Jorge Oliveira, a 14-year veteran of the Rosen family of hotels and hotels. Chef Jorge received his culinary degree from Johnson and Wales, where he focused on French and Northern Italian Cuisine. He began his career with Hilton Hotels in Dallas, training under a Master Chef in one of its large convention hotels and ultimately completed the Hilton Hotels management program. Prior to joining the Rosen family, he was a chef at Hilton hotels in Las Vegas, Atlantic City and Chicago. Now at Rosen Shingle Creek, Chef Jorge designs Florida-heritage inspired culinary creations that reflect the hotel’s “authentic Florida” theme.

Among the tastefully appointed and deliciously tantalizing dining options under Chef Jorge’s direction at Rosen Shingle Creek are:

The Calusa Indians were often referred to as The Shell People and utilized shells as tools, weapons, art, and jewelry, and also incorporated algae, seaweeds and oils from the sea into tribal ceremonies believing in their healing properties. That was the inspiration for developing the Calusa Cocoon, a relaxing and hydrating body treatment incorporates restorative oils, a warm body wrap and hydrating mini-facial.

A Land Remembered

After reading Patrick Smith’s rich historical novel “A Land Remembered,” chronicling the dogged determination of three generations of Florida pioneers, Harris Rosen decided, “So precious is Patrick’s book that we have dedicated our entire Shingle Creek theme to it.” The cornerstone of Harris Rosen’s dream hotel is his high-end classic steakhouse, which brings to life what Smith so artfully penned — the rugged spirit, natural beauty and colorful history of the state in an era when cotton, cattle and citrus were its prime industries.

In keeping with the hotel’s tribute to the Florida’s natural environment, A Land Remembered steakhouse, opening in May 2007, will be located in the Shingle Creek Golf Club House, nestled among dense oaks and pines along the picturesque Shingle Creek. Inside, rich, dark woods are accented with brass fixtures while artwork by Native American artists adorns the walls. Artifacts from the pre-Civil War era will evoke the imagery of Smith’s novel.

When it opens in this year, this all-American steakhouse is certain to secure legendary status with its unforgettable menu of prime cut meats and other American favorites paired with robust side dishes. Hearty and flavorful meal starters will include Jumbo Lump Crab Martini with mango pico, cilantro oil and micro greens and Grilled BBQ Prawns with jalapeno bacon and apple relish. Sure to be favorites from the grill are the De Soto Double Rib Stuffed Pork with black mission figs, apricots, corn bread & roasted chillies with apple jack pan jus, Lamb Tequesta dry rubbed with roasted garlic, stoneground mustard, cilantro and mint and the 10 oz Filet Mignon with roasted garlic and fried green tomatoes. An extensive wine selection promises the perfect companion to any entrée.

Masterful selections from the grill include Cala Bella Lamb with rosemary-minted marsala; Fontina Filet, boasting proscco -stewed beans and fontina fondue; and San Giovanni Chicken Involtini. Chef Jorge’s involtini, or “wrapped bundles,” deliciously combines tender chicken breast, prosciutto and fresh mozzarella with a fragrant garden pesto.
