The Blackwell is wonderful. It is well decorated, modern, comfortable. Honestly, one of the best parts was the extensive free coffee and tea selection in the room. The toiletries were also great. The shampoo, conditioner, and lotion smelled amazing. But more than anything, the staff was incredibly welcoming and helpful. Your room key envelope even folds out into a map of the Ohio State campus. This place is a class act.

The Blackwell is nothing but quality! From the staff and the little amenities they provide it makes you feel like royalty! I have never been in a cleaner. . to the point the wine glasses sparkle hotel! Highly recommended for the price you will have thought you discovered a rare gemstone!

Room Tip: We looked out to the stadium side. . so for all OSU fans you can go to sleep smiling at the home of your Buckeyes!

I travel extensively for business - across the US & Internationally and was incredibly impressed with the quality of service, professionalism of staff and attention to detail and comfort I experienced in the room. This was the best night's sleep I have EVER experienced in a bed that was not my own. I would prefer the Blackwell over any five star hotel I have stayed in and highly recommend it.

Overall, I had a great experience at the Blackwell. I only stayed one night on business and arrived late and left early, so I didn't get to explore the hotel much. However, the staff were incredibly nice and helpful, and the room was large, clean, and fairly modern. I imagine it's not as convenient as other places to Columbus at large, but a clear choice if you want to stay basically on the Ohio State campus.

This is the first time that I stayed at the Blackwell and it will not be the last. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I did not expect the turn down service. The Bistro was excellent as well - both service and food. On future stays in Columbus, I will be staying at the Blackwell.
