Stayed here for a hiring summit. A really nice hotel. Located in the middle of campus with easy access to everything. Valet parking was quick and very convenient. Housekeeping makes nightly rounds to see if you need ice or additional towels. Nice touch. Rooms are great for working and comfort. Front desk personal are friendly and helpful. Beds are comfortable...

Professional staff, very clean facility, very nice room. The only thing that could have been better was the valet was so busy when we were trying to leave, it took 40 minutes to get the car. I even offered to get the car myself, but they said no. Overall, a very nice, clean hotel right on campus.

Dark, fairly clean. Downside: It was the room with the wheelchair friendly shower. A nightmare trying to shower. Don't know why we got stuck with it. Neither of us are handicapped or in a wheelchair. Amenities were very nice. Bed was comfortable. The restaurant is the best thing about this place. Otherwise it is just basic.

Thank you for selecting The Blackwell as your host while in Columbus. There are times when the hotel is sold out that all guest rooms are utilized. This is a time when you received one of our ADA King Bed guest rooms. We are so glad you enjoyed the amenities and our bed, as this is in all 151 of...

Prime location on campus. Rooms are large with all the amenities. Only issue was the paper thin walls (at least on the 7th floor). Didn't like hearing the neighbors at 3 a.m. But besides that, the nicest hotel in Columbus.

Really great hotel, especially, if you have to be on OSU Campus. Makes that huge campus manageable. The rooms are clean, decorated lovely and very comfortable, However, it is their extra services that makes them a true gem--car service, valet parking, and Bistro 2010. I have used all of these services and they are all top notch. This was my...

Stayed here for a few nights while in town on business and pretty much all positives for the Blackwell. The rooms are large and well appointed. Having a robes to use was an unexpected pleasure, as was the nightly service which left fruit, chocolate, and bottled water. I found the staff, which were college students, to be very receptive and...

Great service; large, well-appointed, large room; and amenities a step up from the usual fare. Bed turned down and chocolate on the pillow when I returned. Extra down blanket in the closet. Convenient location to OSU campus destinations.

Excellent hotel, amenities and staff. The rooms are impeccably clean and the service is very prompt. The Blackwell observes green practices which is very important to me as a traveller. It was also quite fun to look out of my window and see all of the famous Ohio State University landmarks. I will stay here every time I am in...

The hotel room was really clean. We got the package that includes breakfast but it was never made clear that we could only get the buffet so we ended up having to pay for our breakfast since we didn't use the buffet along with the extra that we paid for the breakfast package. Also, there seemed to be no sound...
