Rosen Hotels Offer Meeting Discounts
Meeting planners can shave 3 percent off their master account for new meetings booked and consumed before May 31 at any of the three Rosen Convention Hotels in Orlando, Fla., management has announced. The "Save a Little Green" program applies to the Rosen Plaza (see photo), Rosen Centre and Rosen Shingle Creek.
