I was so pleasantly surprised with this hotel! First, the shuttle to and from the airport was really nice. I just wish it ran more frequently--that's my only complaint. The lobby is really nice with a good gift shop. My room was great with a really nice bathroom complete with a scale, lighted make-up mirror, and night-light. Bed was very...

Really enjoyed my stay here, very clean and comfortable and I appreciated all the detail they put into amenities. My room had a great little coffee/tea bar with a Keurig and a refrigerator/freezer. Bathroom was excellent - I enjoyed the extra touches like mouthwash, makeup remover towels, q-tips, and magnifying mirror. Turn down service was a surprise but I enjoyed...

You couldn't find a better place to stay if visiting The Ohio State campus. The room was beautiful - very large with every amenity you can imagine, including a scale. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location is within walking distance of all sports venues and the campus.

Came in town for the Ohio State 4 miler- hotel is right next to stadium- beautiful hotel staff is wonderful and very helpful, complimentary shuttle service within 3 mile radius which was great- went to Eddie George's bar to watch FB games after the race-Overall a great stay- also the upgrade to a stadium suite was sweet!

We stayed at the Blackwell for a family wedding. The rooms are very nice, with lots of nice touches to make you feel at home. The hotel's shuttle service was very helpful, taking us to dinner and breakfast free of charge. I would definitely recommend this for game day, a weekend getaway or business travel.

Stayed two nights to see a show and visit German Village. I cannot say enough about the quality of this hotel and the professionalism of the staff. From the time they picked me up at the airport until the time I left, they made me feel as if I was their only customer. The drivers were on time and very...

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...

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...
