We had a weekend visit to Ohio State University to see out godsons. The Blackwell has an ideal location to campus, very easy for us all to meet up.
The pluses outweigh the minuses. Although the rooms were clean, they had the wrong sized dust ruffles in the bed. I thought it was just our room, but we checked and other rooms had the same problem. It not only looked bad (they literally were hanging uneven all around), but it gave the feeling of being "unclean". The hotel would be wise to invest in bedding that was simple and well fitting.
The staff was truly wonderful! They were friendly and warm, and went out of their way to be helpful. Definitely got us past the ugly rooms!
There is a shuttle to and from the airport, which was helpful. We asked to use the shuttle for another drop off that was aprox 10 minutes away. Frankly, they could have charged us a fee and we still would have used it. Instead, we had a grumbly driver complaining that we are out of the way. We tipped very generously, and were under no obligation to do so. The hotel would be smart to make the shuttle available for local transit with a fee so the staf were a little happier about doing it.
The restaurant was good. We had a very nice brunch with 10 of us seated quickly and given the same great service we had at the hotel in general.
Overly, a nice stay. Im not a snob, but the hotel isn't cheap for the area, and the aesthetics should be fixed. The great staff made up for it.
