I always stay here when visiting my son at OSU. I am impressed with the quality of the service and the comfort there. The accommodations are clean and quiet. The restaurant has good choices and the lounge area is comfortable.

Stopped by on a very brief trip to visit OSU with my daughter. We called ahead and let them know we would be arriving very late. When we got there, we discovered we had been bumped up to a meeting room suite. It was way too big for us, and I wonder if we got it because all the other... More

I've stayed at the Blackwell several times during the years my daughter was a student at Ohio State and it is always fabulous. The bathrooms are lovely and the beds, linens, pillows and towels are the best. Love the terry cloth robes, too. I sleep like I'm at home in my own bed, even though we had a queen and... More

We book a block of 10-15 rooms at the Blackwell every July while we are hosting/participating in a fundraiser at The Ohio State University. Every summer we are equally impressed by the clean, comfortable rooms and the attentive staff at the Blackwell. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else as the Blackwell has become one of the highlights of our... More

Everyone liked the bar. Being in the middle... More

We have stayed at The Blackwell several times and have been delighted with our accommodations as well as the knowledgable and friendly staff. My favorite thing is , there is no "hotel" smell when you enter the room! Very clean! The hotel is in walking distance of many things to do! The food is also delicious! Give them a try,... More

The Blackwell 'made' my trip to this college town. Great hotel and friendly, attentive staff. Do not miss out on the restaurant either. I never eat at hotel restaurants unless I have to, but not so here! I had most of my meals at the hotel bistro because it was so good. The baked goods for breakfast were truly amazing.... More

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.

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!!
