We stayed at the Blackwell for 5 days for a swim meet. The hotel was very close to the stadium and pool venue (walking). AMY and Nick in sales were awesome(we had a large party). The front desk Zenie and Clay and Scott were exceptional. I had a lot of questions and extra needs for the group I was traveling...

Stayed here after one of the recent football games again and this is a great spot to stay when on the Ohio State campus. They also make a killer bloody Mary before the game. Would highly recommend. We have never eaten in the restaurant so I can't really comment on that. Thanks,

Many major American universities have a hotel on campus. The Ohio State University has The Blackwell. A lavish venue conveniently located amidst the forest of buildings that forms the OSU campus. After two days spent in this hotel, I have nothing but compliments to write. From the courteous reception to the exquisitely decorated room, from the succulent breakfast to the...

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 staff helped us out on many occasions during our short stay and made us feel welcome. The hotel is close to the airport and is located a VERY...

The Blackwell is one of the best hotels in which I have stayed. The rooms and all staff are exceptional and the location on the OSU campus is great, especially for its convenience to restaurants and shopping.

Stayed here for 5 nights over a football weekend and into week. Staff are beyond friendly, hotel is clean and professional. Used mezzanine level to do work for 3 days, had tables, chairs, business center and strong WiFi. Restaurant is solid too, not a huge menu but very, very good. 2 minute walk into Ohio Stadium and 10 minute walk...

We made the 9 hour drive to OSU to check out some grad programs with one of the kids, and figured we'd find someplace to stay once we got there. After finding the building we needed to visit the next morning, we saw the Blackwell across the street and quickly went on Trip Advisor to make a rezzie. The room...

I stayed at Blackwell for two nights in October 2016, for business. It's a good hotel, and I have nothing to complain about, but there is no character, or wow factor, which probably is not necessary for a hotel mostly for people who have business on OSU campus (like myself). I am happy with the hotel. Pros: (1) Clean, spacious,...

The Blackwell is situated in the middle of Ohio State's campus. It is convenient to all sporting venues and almost anything else going on at OSU. The rooms are large and well appointed. The Staff, largely made up of students, is attentive friendly and competent. It is a little over priced and parking is expensive but it is a fine...

Of all the hotels I've stayed (quite a few), this is most likely the best! Because it's the only hotel on the OSU campus though (as far as I know), it's just a tad overpriced because of it's location, but worth staying if doing business or pleasure at the OSU campus though. Rooms are large, hospitality is great, and love...
