We have stayed at this hotel several times while visiting our son at OSU. It's immaculate and beautiful and never disappoints. Very convenient to everything in and around the campus. The breakfast buffet is alway delicious.

We stayed here while taking our granddaughter to a concert at Nationwide Arena. We have stayed here before while attending a concert at Schottenstein Center. You can walk easily to Schottenstein Center, and it is a 10 minute drive to Nationwide Arena. You are right on the Ohio State Campus, so it couldn't be more convenient for that purpose. The... More

The Blackwell was very clean and the room was quite nice. Comfy bed, clean bathroom and spacious. Very nice location, with self parking available in the adjacent garage. Breakfast in the bistro was nice as well.

Our flight had been delayed so we found ourselves looking for a hotel after midnight. We were unfamiliar with the area, but it seemed pretty secure. The girl at front desk was pleasant and checked us in promptly. The bed and pillows were comfortable. We were surprised to find the room had a Keurig coffee maker. The hotel was well... More

very nice facilities, with many nice touches - a very good attempt at a high-end hotel. However, they have a ways to go. Nicely appointed coffee station with many options, including tea. Linens and bath supplies are nice and they have plenty of hot water. Service is not as expected, though I appreciate that many are students. Waken up twice... More

Excellent location near OSU campus. Clean, fun! My husband and I stayed one night and walked back from our restaurant through the old Victorian homes, campus, and eventually to the hotel. Great to hear the OSU band practicing when we arrived, great NOT to hear it when we were ready to retire for the evening. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there... More

I went to Columbus for a conference, I stayed at the Blackwell on the OSU campus. The Blackwell is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The beds are like any other hotel, a little firm for me. This is not a criticism, just a fact of life. The staff... More

Stayed here for the first time back in 2014 when our son came to Ohio State for orientation. Whenever we visit, we always stay here and are not disappointed.

Wonderful stay at this property. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was hot, wifi was good. The location of this hotel is great. Lots of things to do very close by. Staff was friendly. My room had a fantastic view overlooking the city. Food was pretty good as well.
