Rosen Shingle Creek was built intentionally for meetings and it shows. There is ample, well planned meeting space and moving between break outs, general session and evening events is a breeze. Our production team loved the single level move in and the large loading docks and the technology infrastructure is fantastic. Their built in registration desks have great lockable space behind them and good visibility and access to other spaces.
Their staff treats each other, and their clients like family. They are warm, friendly and highly capable and working with them was truly a pleasure. We had lots of tight turns and last minute requests that they handled flawlessly and always with a smile.
Their food and beverage team is great and very innovative. We had to customize most of our menus to allow for budget issues and they met the challenge without compromising quality. The food was very, very good and our attendee feedback reflected as much.
The guest rooms are clean and nice. I would not consider this a luxury resort, but that wasn't what we needed for our sales meeting. The amenities are standard and the soft goods feel a little dated, but the group rate we secured was exceptional for such a nice product.
For the large sales meeting that we hosted, this property was perfect. I would return with the same kind of group again and again. I did not give the hotel five solid stars, because I feel like it is a little too convention friendly for a smaller, high end meeting. They do, however, have a spa and golf onsite and partner with great DMCs that could bring something special to their space or deliver high end offsite events.
Bottom line: amazing hotel for a large group with the best staff in Florida.
