We arrived in Columbus after a long and trying day in transit. I'd read the reviews and expected something nice, but the Blackwell surpassed all my expectations. The hotel room was beautiful, with two work spaces - important as this was a work trip.
Both room and bathroom were spotless. Good facilities and an excellent selection of guest toiletries, tea, hot chocolate and coffee. Staff were pleasant and helpful, the hotel was quiet and the bed extremely comfortable.
The location was also very convenient - just next to the Columbus uni and close to lots of restaurants and other facilities within walking distance. The bistro was good with nice staff and a good selection of dishes and complimentary wines. A very pleasant experience.
If I ever return to Columbus, I will definitely aim to stay at the Blackwell again.
