Rosen Plaza Hotel, International Drive, Orlando, FL
A contemporary hotel in the heart of Orlando, the Rosen Plaza Hotel sets the stage for DDNA's 22nd Annual Education Conference.
Just 15 minutes from the Orlando International Airport and adjacent to the Orange County Convention Center, Rosen Plaza is home to more than 60,000 square feet of sophisticated and flexible meeting and exhibition space. DDNA will be meeting in the modern and elegant Grand Ballroom for our general sessions. You can visit with sponsors and exhibitors in the 12,500-square-foot Ballroom Foyer. There are an additional 22 meeting rooms, including the Regency Salon junior ballrooms, some of which we will be using for our break-out sessions. The ballrooms and the breakout salons are elegant and efficient thanks to a recent renovation project.
Rosen Plaza guest rooms have 32-inch TVs, laptop-sized safes, comfortable furnishings, and bathrooms designed to invoke the relaxing sensations of an upscale spa.
Relaxation at Rosen Plaza comes easily, thanks to a swimming pool area with a cascading waterfall and whirlpool, as well as a fitness center with cardio exercise machines and a full range of free weights. You will also have privileges at the Harmen-designed,18-hole championship Shingle Creek Golf Club just five minutes away.
Making an old favorite new again, the ever popular Jack's Place restaurant, home to the world's largest collection of autographed caricatures, recently updated its menu. Jack's Place, named one of Florida Trend's top restaurants in Orlando and Orlando magazine's Best Restaurant on International Drive, still serves up its famous prime steaks and fresh seafood, but now offers even more options, such as the hefty 16-ounce veal chop and mouthwatering sesame crusted tuna, as well as even more chicken, pasta, and vegetarian dishes, like the savory vegetable ratatouille and herbed cheese in phyllo. After dinner, nightlife awaits at the Backstage Nightclub & Sports Bar, which features a huge dance floor, live music on weekends along with DJs spinning Top 40 hits, six 50-inch flatscreen TVs for the ultimate high-definition sports, and an all-new recreation area with pool tables, darts, and video games. The hotel also offers a coffee shop, a large cafeteria-style restaurant, and a beverage/snack/sandwich/coffee convenience store. And there is always room service!
