In 1970, Harris Rosen joined Disney Company as Director of Hotel Planning; he was instrumental in the development and planning of the Contemporary Resort Hotel and the Polynesian Village Hotel. Thirty-nine years later he earned an induction into the Central Florida Hospitality Hall of Fame.

He purchased his first hotel in Orlando, Florida, the Quality Inn International, now known as the Rosen Inn International in 1974 and according to, his early method of attracting guests was to “hitchhike to the Northeast, visiting one motor coach company after another, asking them to name their price. He came home with contracts for guestroom rates as low as $7 a night. This commitment to occupancy instead of average rate has become a tradition.”

Attendees at the 2016 American Lingual Orthodontic Association Lingual Congress in late April will have the pleasure of visiting another jewel in his crown – the Rosen Centre Hotel, which rises 24 stories over International Drive and boasts more than 100,000 square feet of meeting space and fine dining restaurants. A Skywalk connecting the hotel with the Orange County Convention Center constructed in 2011 will provide visitors’ passage on April 29.
