“Great stay!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Great hotel. The beds are fantastic! Very nice place and great staff. Stayed for a wedding and all went well. Very near shopping and OSU campus. Central location and super rooms. Views of OSU stadium from rooms.

Stayed October 2012, traveled as a couple

I stayed at blackwell ohio recently, at room 512. The staff was impressive -very friendly and international bunch. They got me a charger for my malaysian phone and an adapter for my computer, and the beds and coffeemaker and topped up with chocholate on the bed to welcome me was plesant surprises.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. We ordered room service, and this was fantastic and not horribly priced (cost was average for this sort of hotel). We had one minor customer service difficulty... we booked a suite and were initially sent to a regular room instead; however, this was quickly rectified, and we had no issues from there. Valet was lower than expected; however, we don't really know the rates for the area. Overall, quite pleasant.

Overall, I thought the hotel was very nice, but maybe a little expensive for a weeknight in Columbus. The room was certainly updated, but showing a little wear. It had some little details and amenities in the room that might not be found in other hotels. Very comfortable bathrobes, towels, and beddings, and a nice chocolate left on the bed. Nice full-wall desk area for anyone bringing along a laptop for work, but I found the internet slow to connect to and slow-running once connected. Wifi access was free, which was appreciated. The lobby had a lot of OSU merchandise in plastic bins for sale, which seemed kind of tacky; maybe good for parents visiting students here.

At $17, valet parking was expensive and did not provide very polished service. Not very friendly or welcoming and provided no assistance with helping me get my items out of or into my car. In a rush in the morning, I called down to the front desk to request that my car be brought up. When I arrived downstairs, it had not been brought up yet, and I waited several minutes. There were no other people waiting for their cars, so it was not that they were busy with other requests.

Pulling up to the location at night, the lights shone so brightly on the silver signs that I could not read the name of the hotel, and I have perfect vision.

It is located at the North end of campus a block from the Horseshoe. So, it is convenient to everything on campus. The room was nice if fairly standard. In room coffee was Keurig (yeah). The staff was very friendly and helpful. One night they went around to all of the rooms dropping off ice and chocolates. Everything was clean and tidy.

Room Tip: Don't wear U of M colors if you stay there.

What an excellent hotel! Globally consistent customer service makes the Blackwell a standout. Jason & Andrew were fabulous in lounge! They always made me feel welcomed and taken care of. Adam was an invested supervisor at the front desk who made sure arrangements such as shuttle drop offs and pick ups were flawless. It is clear all staff is well trained to ensure their guests receive a high level of care. Everyone ranging from the cleaning crew to doormen were personable positive professionals. The accommodations were top notch as well! I highly recommend the Blackwell.

We stayed at the Blackwell during orientation at Ohio State University. What a great experience! The employees were very helpful. The food in the restaurant was very good. Couldn't wait to eat the breakfast buffet the next day. The staff gave us helpful advice on how to get around and showed us where to go on campus. Everyone was professional and courteous. Very well run by the college students! I was very impressed! I will stay there again when visiting for special events at the university!
