The main reason to chose this hotel is its location on OSU's campus. The rooms are large and in good shape (pretty new). I have stayed there a couple of times, and every other time for some reason I seem to end up next to some rather noisy folks in the adjacent room. This is not helped by the fact... More

Spent a most relaxing and enjoyable week at The Blackwell. What made the stay excellent was: 1. Comfortable rooms. 2. Outstanding housekeeping staff--your every whim catered to immediately. 3. Super fast valet service. 4. Wonderfully responsive supervisory staff, namely Eric Hyre. It all filters down from the top, and in addition to flawless service throughout the hotel, I inadvertently left... More

Our children gave us an anniversary package which included one night's stay and concert downtown, with transportation provided by the hotel. Because of all the extra little perks they got for us we were able to stay on the higher floors--fruit in room, and just an incredible room at that! Remember this is, as another reviewer has said, a posh... More

If you want "posh", this is the place to be. There were very nice amenities, including a Keurig. It was very convenient to stay here during our daughter's orientation at OSU. However, we were in Room 202 which was right next to a conference room. At 5:00, a man was talking very loudly on a conference call. At 10:10 p.m.,... More

Whenever I come to Columbus, I love to stay at the Blackwell. An immensely attentive and friendly staff assists with every need! The beds are extremely comfortable and the work area is well set up. Can't wait to actually be able to score a room here for an entire weekend when there is a home football game! One can dream....

We stayed at The Blackwell recently while our daughter had her orientation at Ohio State. The Blackwell has an excellent location, you are right on campus! Room was very clean, staff was very kind and helpful and the fitness room is honestly unbelievable. There is equipment in that fitness room you'd usually only see in a gym! There is not... More

Thank you for the wonderful comments regarding your recent stay. We are so glad you enjoyed our fitness center and while we do not have a pool onsite, we do have access to OSU's famed McCorkle Aquatic Center, located blocks away from the hotel. You simply need to stop at the desk for a pass and it can be charged... More

I stayed here while my daughter was at orientation, perfect location for meeting up with student, stayed alone and wasn't concerned about safety at all. Room wasn't ready when I arrived at 3, but they quickly had a room within 15 minutes. Valet service was very fast and loved that they used the text system for requesting your car.

My son was married at this hotel. I stayed on the executive floor. The room was very spacious and well appointed. Plenty of outlets and connections for WiFi, phone charging, etc. Breakfast food and snacks were available on this level . I hosted a brunch the following morning at Phahl Hall .

Very good hotel, on OSU campus. At Ohio Stadium, business college, near everything on north campus. Excellent beds, fine service. Marred by poor refrigerator, no microwave. Further from the medical buildings, but THE place to stay for THE Ohio State University.

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us recently. For future stays, I would suggest our stadium view suite, which features a king bed, pull-out sleeper sofa, kitchenette area with full sized refrigerator and microwave and a dining/meeting table for 6 people. We look forward to your return visit to The Blackwell! More

The Blackwell is kitty-corner from Ohio Stadium, where OSU graduation took place. Spent the weekend at this very conveniently-located and very well-managed hotel. Friendly and helpful staff throughout. Nice, spacious, well-appointed rooms. Called to the restaurant to see about a table Sunday morning --- staff could not have been more helpful as they explained that it would be over an... More
