We had one of the ADA suites on the 8th floor. Very clean and luxurious hotel, and the staff was very friendly and professional. We were fortunate to be there during nice weather, and it was really sweet to be able to walk around the campus and still be close to where we were staying. In the past, we've stayed... More

The Blackwell is the only hotel on the Ohio State campus. The condition of the hotel is excellent and the decor is current. Although we did not have reservations, the staff was extremely nice and helpful. The room was comfortable and quiet. I would definitely stay there again if we are visiting campus.

The Blackwell is a great place to stay on The Ohio State University campus. The location, cleanliness and helpfulness of the staff go beyond expectations. My only complaint is that it is difficult to get a reservation and I'm not just talking about when a football game is going on either. Also, it's on the pricey side, but if you... More

I was in town for a football game and was lucky enough to get a room at The Blackwell on Saturday night. The location was absolutely perfect - almost directly across the street from the Horseshoe. The service we received from the front desk and the bellmen was excellent and the room was clean and very large. Texting the valet... More

We were in town for a concert and decided to stay at the Blackwell. It was very clean. We couldn't get a shuttle to the concert. Then we left the privacy sign on the door while we were gone. Staff ignored the sign and went in anyway. Room service was excellent. Cleaning came at 8:00 am!! Check out wasn't until... More

I booked my room at this hotel based on all of the reviews of how wonderful the customer service is supposed to be at this hotel. I wasn't so fortunate, the service I received was terrible. The front desk employees and the rooms manager should treat their guest better.

I enjoyed staying at this location. Mostly because my event was located on campus and it didn't make sense to spend more money to be near the downtown area and still have to get to campus for my event. It can be at least $50-$60 less than downtown. Cabs came in under 5 minutes. While the decor wasn't the most... More
