This experience was that of the best. My room was super nice and the hotel appearance was very nice. The staff at the Blackwell was fantastic. I will stay at this wonderful hot next time I am in town on business.

I had to travel to Columbus for upcoming medical reasons and was booked into The Blackwell by the company in charge of my medical stuff. I was a little leery of staying at a hotel on a college campus, but it was amazing! All of the room amenities were top of the line, the staff was excellent, the restaurant was superb! The rooms were quiet and the bed.... oh, the bed... it made for the best night of sleep I have had in a long time. Valet service was nice and friendly also.

We stayed at the Blackwell while visiting the Ohio State Univ. campus. The price was really reasonable and the amenities were amazing. Everything was immaculate, the staff was courteous and knowledgeable. Besides just having the complimentary shuttle to pick up from the airport, they also would drive guests to local restaurants and other establishments. We would love to stay there again.

The Blackwell has oversized rooms, extremely comfortable beds and great service. My only complaint is that there are no vending machines on the floors so if I wanted a coke I had to ask room service to deliver which meant the price if a 12 oz can of coke was extremely high!

When I found out that this hotel was basically on the campus at Ohio State, I was ready to not enjoy my stay at all. It was a long few days of travel and finding out that The Blackwell was on the Ohio State campus, for some reason, put me in a foul mood. I was ready to find something wrong with the service or the facility. I'm usually a pretty positive and upbeat guy, but I just wasn't ready to enjoy staying here. All that being said, this place was fantastic. It was absurd how every need seemed to be anticipated, every face was genuinely smiling, and all of this in a very well appointed room at an excellent value. It was almost disturbing that these guys did so well...everyone really knocked it out of the park on this one! I'll continue to not like the Buckeye sports teams, but will go out of my way to stay at this hotel again. Great job to all of you at The Blackwell.

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.
