How to Get There
We really enjoyed our stay. Staff was very helpful and pleasant. Rooms were quite and you can walk to several restaurants. Parking at the city parking garage is only a block away or you can use valet. Great for visiting the collage.
As far as hotels go, this is a well maintained, on campus, upscale hotel that rivals a Hilton or Marriott. However, the staff is what makes this hotel a destination, not just an overnight accommodation. The front desk staff is knowledge, courtesy and extremely accommodating. The waitstaff in the bar area makes one feels as if they are in an episode of Cheers. And the valets and drivers, especially Beth, should all receive high commendation for their customer service. It is on the pricey side but I cannot imagine staying anywhere else.
We visit Columbus about once a year... both of us are OSU grads so it's nice to stay on campus. But that's not the reason we stay here... the service, from valet to the front desk, is always superb. Rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable. Views of the campus in a great location. Easy access to High Street, close to the Short North and everything else going on in Columbus. We arrange our visits around the days we can get reservations at the Blackwell! A real favorite.
