Excellent stay! Free upgrade to celebrate Anniversary. Top notch service every time we have been here. Highly recommended. Worthy of the high ranking on Trip Advisor. They also offer free shuttle/car service to local dining/drinking spots.

If you are in Columbus, especially on or around The Ohio State campus, you must stay at The Blackwell. The Blackwell's accommodations and staff are first class. The Blackwell has a great restaurant, Bistro 2110 which has great breakfast and lunch buffets as well as a good selection on the dinner menu. The Blackwell has all of the amenities one...

The location is very convenient to the OSU campus, Horseshoe, and Schottenstein Center. We attended a concert at Schottenstein and it was a short walk from the hotel. The staff was wonderful and accommodating. Our room was perfect, especially the bathroom/tub. Valet parking was excellent. On the eighth floor, a snack bar was well maintained and provided nice snacks and...

I am an independent college counselor so I've been to a lot of college campuses and have stayed in a lot of campus hotels. The Blackwell ranks up there at the very top. Easy valet service and check in. Very well trained and professional student staff, who were helpful and knowledgeable. Lovely hotel, with a very nice lobby. Everything was...

Got in late and left early but was impressed by the friendly greeting and amenities. Many OSU students work here and the Buckeyes apparently stay here on game nights. My room was large, bed comfortable and I am always happy to find a big, fluffy robe in the bathroom. A lovely driver met me early to take me to my...

The Blackwell is my home away from home when I'm in Columbus and not staying with family or friends! The front desk staff goes above & beyond. I adore the blueberry goat cheese snack appetizer too! A+

Hotel is great, experience ruined by their policies on their airport shuttle. The Blackwell is under the impression that shuttles are not exempt from child restraint (car seat) requirements. Worst part, they waited until we were boarding to go to the airport at 7:00 am to tell us that we were tough out of luck and could not board the...

Thank you for letting us know about your experience. You are right, at 7am as you are boarding our shuttle is not the time to provide you with no options. I do apologize for this inconvenience. While we do have restrictions on providing transportation for a toddler without a car seat, other solutions should have been provided. We will certainly...

We needed 3 rooms & the hotel actually put us all side-by-side. The reservation desk & hotel staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The rooms are large & comfortable with beautiful views of OSU, wonderful beds, roomy bathrooms, Kerrigan coffee makers & luxurious bathrobes. Highly recommend!!

We were in town for a basketball tournament and wanted to be close to the stadium. This hotel was perfect. Close to both the football and basketball stadiums. Couldn't ask for a better location.
