Known as much for philanthropy as he is for hotels, Harris Rosen is adding to his namesake resorts with the newly re-branded Rosen Inn Lake Buena Vista.[Read more…]
Hey Savers, we found another great discount for our guys and gals in uniform. The Rosen Hotel and Resort group is offering 50 percent off rack room rates, and food and beverages for anyone in the U.S. Armed Forces for the rest of this year. After reading all the details, this has to be one of the best offers going for our military personnel.
The Rosen group is offering this at four of their Orlando properties:
Quality Inn International
Rodeway Inn International
Quality Inn Plaza
Comfort Inn Lake Buena Vista
The first three are located on International Drive while the Comfort Inn is near Walt Disney World.
I went online and actually looked at the rates for the Comfort Inn. I was able to book a seven-night stay for less than $300 during the Forth of July weekend! That’s a great price. I have worked at some Disney resorts that charge more than that just for one night. If you combine this discount with the some of the other military honors that are being offered at some theme parks, you can save a lot of money.
You can get these great rates by calling 877-224-5377 or visit orlandohotels4less.com/military.
Thanks again to all our great military personnel and I hope you can take advantage of these great offers.

Last week, we attended the grand opening of the new Banshoo Sushi bar at the Rosen Centre hotel on International Drive and were treated to a sampling of the sushi and sashimi that are now regularly available there.
The Rosen Centre hotel is located across from the Orange County Convention Center on the southern end of International Drive. The new Banshoo Sushi bar blends in nicely with the upscale but relaxed atmosphere of the hotel. Its walk-up, open-air design allows guests to grab their sushi on the go, taking it to the nearby lounge, poolside, or even back to their rooms. Or, for those who have already called it a night, sushi is also available via room service.
I had a chance to sample several pieces from Banshoo’s menu at the opening. Now, I don’t eat sushi regularly and when I do, it’s usually something simple like a California roll. So, you may ask, why am I writing a report from the opening of a new sushi bar? Well, I suspect many Orlando visitors are in the same position I am, either having tried very little sushi or have simply never wanted to try it at all.
The offerings of the Banshoo Sushi bar include six sashimi and seafood presentations, nine Nigiri sushi and sashimi selections, 12 sushi rolls and daily chef specials. As a sushi novice, I found everything I tried at the opening to be nothing but fresh and full of flavor. The signature HaRo Surf & Turf (lobster, lump crab, sea scallops, sirloin beef, sweet eel sauce, micro greens, and black & white sesame seeds) blends land and sea successfully, with both tastes offering something unique and distinct.
