Orlando's Rosen Hotels Offer Shelter from the Storms

Orlando's Rosen Hotels & Resorts has announced a special rate for the 2007 hurricane season - just $49 per night at four of its Orlando properties: Quality Inn International, Rodeway Inn International, Quality Inn Plaza, each centrally located on International Drive, or the Comfort Inn Lake Buena Vista, near Walt Disney World. The discounted rate is valid for evacuees of a tropical storm or hurricane anywhere in Florida and will remain in effect as long as the warning is in place. The rate will be offered for as long as necessary for those who are displaced by a storm.

The $49 nightly rate includes a room with two double beds, an in-room microwave, mini-refrigerator and coffee maker. Children age 17 and younger stay free with parents in the same room; extra persons are $5 per night. Family pets are welcome at all four hotels for an additional rate of just $10 more per night. Rates do not include tax. This offer is not valid at Rosen Shingle Creek Resort, Rosen Plaza or Rosen Centre hotels.

To book this special hurricane rate, evacuees may call ROSEN HOTELS HURRICANE HOTLINE AT 866-224-5377 (local & toll-free long distance) and ask for the Rosen Hurricane Rate, or visit www.rosenhotels.com and www.orlandohotels4less.com. These four Rosen hotels offer a "No Questions Asked" cancellation policy. In the event that a guest is unable to travel to Orlando due to an active named storm, he may cancel his reservation up to 4 p.m. on the day of arrival without incurring a late cancellation fee. Rosen Hotels & Resorts' severe weather policy is available online at www.orlandohotels4less.com/weather.aspx.

"When Florida families are threatened by a tropical storm or hurricane, we want to offer them a home away from home," said Harris Rosen, President & COO of Rosen Hotels & Resorts. "We know that evacuating from a storm can be emotionally, physically and financially taxing, so we want to do everything in our power to help those families in need."

Located more than 45 miles from the Atlantic coast and more than 75 miles from the Gulf coast, Orlando's inland location makes it a primary location for sheltering coastal residents and visitors when a storm is approaching. Additionally, the Orlando community puts a tremendous effort into emergency preparation in terms of visitor and resident safety.

Over the last 34 years, Rosen Hotels & Resorts has grown from 256 to more than 6,500 rooms, approximately six percent of the total guest rooms in Central Florida. Today, the Rosen family of hotels, which include the new Rosen Shingle Creek, the award-winning Rosen Centre and Rosen Plaza, and four leisure properties in the Orlando tourist corridor, including the Quality Inn International, Quality Inn Plaza and Rodeway Inn International and Comfort Inn Lake Buena Vista, remain committed to providing outstanding value for all guests.
