Perfect Location for Ohio State Events!

Posted Dec 3, 2016
Pros: Room Cleanliness, Exceptional Customer Service
Cons: n/a
Location: Ohio Stadium, restaurants, downtown Columbus.
This was our first time staying at The Blackwell and it will not be our last! Our entire stay was impeccable from the customer service, to the cleanliness of our room. The hotel is located a VERY short walk to Ohio Stadium which made it a perfect choice for an Ohio State game day weekend. The hotel has many amenities that are not even offered by the larger named hotels. Unfortunately the hotel was sold out for the weekend so we had to move hotels half way through our trip to Columbus. We moved to a large hotel and were completely dissatisfied wishing we were still at the Blackwell. The room wasn't large but more than met my high standards of cleanliness and amenities. They offered a complimentary airport shuttle and a town car for short distances. I will definitely stay here again.

Club atmosphere on campus

Posted Dec 2, 2016
Pros: Functional room, warm.
Location: Jump onto freeway to be in the Short North in minutes, or cruise the campus bars and shops.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blackwell. It was fun to walk the Oval and to soak up the OSU atmosphere. Attentive staff, pleasant surroundings, a nice change from the typical corporate style.

Great location with valet parking and bell boy to take care of all your luggage. Very clean not just in room but entire hotel. Great Bistro in hotel with delicious food. Overall definitely a step above your regular hotel. Worth the extra money.

Great hotel on campus

Posted Nov 21, 2016 on Orbitz
The hotel was excellent. It was clean and had all of the great amenities you would expect. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. My only negatives were that the towels were really scratchy and not soft and the bed was really really soft. If you like your bed that way and want to sink into pillowy softness then you would love it. If you have a bad back like me and prefer your bed to be firm, you will not get that here...at least not the bed I had. Otherwise it was excellent and I really enjoyed my stay!!!
