My first stay at the Blackwell,could not have been happier.the room was large with all the amenities.You are right in the middle of campus,bus service at your door,parking right across street.Staff very helpful.If you have business or other on OSU campus,this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms 228,229,&231 are next to exercise room,which is used very early in the morning.

We stay here whenever we have meetings at OSU. The rooms are nice and clean. The service is friendly and the food is fine. They have a nice shuttle service that will take you to various locations on the OSU campus and pick you up so it's not necessary to rent a car if you're just staying on campus. They will also arrange a van to take you to the airport. The hotel is attached to a conference center which makes holding meetings very convenient.

I stayed at The Blackwell for a four-night stay in March, 2014. I was attending a conference on OSU's campus, and this hotel seemed the obvious choice because of its proximity to campus. It turned out to be much more than close to campus! This is a really nice hotel! The rooms are clean and comfortable, and they provide more than the basics as far as amenities: shampoo and conditioner, obviously, but also a little shoe-polishing cloth, makeup remover, Q-Tips and cotton balls, a good hairdryer, much of the stuff you've got handy in your own bathroom. There was a nice Keurig coffee maker in the room. (I typically never use hotel coffee makers, because they're usually filthy, but this one was clean.) The beds are comfortable and plushy.

The service was excellent too. Our room was attended to multiple times a day, for cleaning in the a.m., then for a turn-down service at night. There is a shuttle that will take guests to and from the airport, but also to locations at a reasonable distance in town from the hotel. Not having to pay for multiple cabs was a nice surprise. Everyone on the staff (at least everyone I encountered) was courteous and helpful.

These may seem like little things, but all these little conveniences add up to a great experience. It was more than I was expecting, because this hotel is reasonably priced. (I'm a jaded Northeasterner and used to exorbitant hotel prices.)

I'd absolutely stay here again.

One of the best staffed hotels I've ever stayed at.The food was great with a wide verity to choose from.Parking was a breeze. Shuttle service made it easy to get around. Everyone who worked there would help you out , where to go what to do.

The Blackwell is a very well run, clean hotel. The room was very large and comfortable for a family of four. The bathroom had nice amenities and was spotless, the beds very comfy after a long car trip. The valets were helpful and the complimentary car service to the Union for our tour was great…no need to worry about parking. The only improvement would be the turndown service which we had requested in our reservation. They only left one chocolate for the whole family and no extra towels!

My wife and I stayed here on the night of our wedding. The staff was great and I had no problem checking in early and dropping off all of our luggage. The valet service was quick and the room was very comfortable, while still remaining high quality. If you are doing anything at OSU, this hotel is a great choice as it is in the heart of campus.

Based on the reviews you expect a nice on campus hotel: what you get is a whole lot more. The Blackwell can compete with any hotel in regards to rooms, cleanliness and the feel if it. Where it excels is in the quality of the service and guest experience. The staff goes out of there way to help you and to also to make you feel special: really quite remarkable and I was impressed, as you will be. The food is excellent and here again only out shined by the service. What makes it even more special are that most of the staff are students. If this is what the future of the hospitality industry looks like we are in for a treat. One last note, the text to valet service to get your car is wonderful, such a nice service. Well done to the staff and management of this fine property, look forward to coming back .
