“Fantastic Accomodations”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Probably one of the nicest, well situated hotels I've stayed in for a while. The rooms were exceptionally comfortable, staff helpful, and the free shuttle very handy. I'd stay here again anytime if in Columbus.

Room Tip: Every room is a winner!

Very comfortable beds and pillows, the staff were so friendly and helpful. There was little extras they left after cleaning our room, which was nice. The bistro for breakfast was amazing. The in house granola and buffet was delicious! I loved that the manager came out and spoke to us, and gave us that personal connection. No complaints here!!

We recently booked 2 rooms at the Blackwell for 1 night. Definitely a nice hotel with good service and comfortable rooms. The hotel also provided complimentary shuttle service. They drove us to Huntington Park for a baseball game and picked us up afterward. Only complaint is the parking. They charge an expensive fee for parking in their garage. Not much in the way of options for parking. Other than that we enjoyed our stay. Breakfast at the hotel was very good too with good service.

Had an occasion to stay at the Blackwell Hotel on the campus of the Ohio State University. Had walked by the property on many occasions on my way to Ohio Stadium, but never had never stayed there. Our experience as guests of the hotel in late July exceeded our expectations. Our check in was seamless, with eager valet service and courteous front desk. The room was great with very nice bedding.

Spent one night here because reviews were so positive. They were right. We had a room with two queens, two work stations, and even a live plant! When's the last time you stayed in a room with a live plant? Although we were at the very end of the hall which was a long, long walk, we not disappointed.
We had dinner and breakfast in the hotel's restaurant. Breakfast buffet was not to be missed. Plentiful delicious food.

Room Tip: Just remember to ask where your room is in case you have mobility issues.

I stayed at the Blackwell during my sons orientation at OSU. The staff could not do enough for us and went above and beyond ! From pick up at the airport to drop off on departure day every staff member we encountered was pleasant and helpful and full of information about OSU and Columbus.

We pulled in to this Hotel about midnite after a very long drive. Staff was so very nice. Went to our room and it was spotless, well appointed, and we had received turndown service. We had been put on the executive floor, so in the morning, there was a big serving area at the end of the hall with bagels, pastries, juice coffee and tea. This are also has snacks available in the afternoon. All the rooms have coffee makers, and are given a morning newspaper. Housekeeping did a great job cleaning and replacing the wonderful soaps etc. They thought of everything you could possibly forget! The staff at the hotel are extremely friendly and accommodating. I would never expect this right on a college campus. The location is terrific. If we go back to Ohio State, this is definitely where we will stay.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are great, you may want a view of the stadium.
