IT'S THE PLACE on the OSU Campus
Reviewed 4 days ago

Everything done well. We had a big room on the top floor overlooking the OSU football stadium. Valet parking prompt and friendly, check-in fast. Great big room with a great view. And reasonably priced. I would absolutely stay there again. If you're at OSU for see a game, you want to be here.

This place is staffed by OSU students in the Hotel Management Program, so they're smart, fast, and eager to please.

Well-appointed hotel in a great location
Reviewed 4 days ago

Stayed for two nights on business at Ohio State. Located right on campus, walking distance to pretty much everything. Only a few minutes from all the shopping and dining of High Street. Beautiful facility with excellent service and comfortable bed. The complimentary airport shuttle was a nice touch. Great base of operations for a OSU stay, although with its proximity to the Horseshoe, it's got to be crazy on football weekends.

Happy we chose the Blackwell
Reviewed 7 days ago

My husband and I were in Columbus for a medical visit. The Blackwell was a great home away from home. The beds were comfortable and that is important for a good night sleep. Now for the staff, valet, room attendants, restaurant servers, and front desk. All above average for the service industry. They get it. This made for an otherwise stressful trip "almost" relaxing. I am glad we chose to stay there and while I found cheaper rates, it was worth it. No issues and that was important to us. Thank You to all! Smiles and kindness go a long way. You never know why people are staying with you.

Beautiful rooms. AMAZING beds. Super friendly staff! Within walking distance to restaurants, the Schott center and the "Shoe" on OSU's campus. Will definitely be a return customer. Price is a little more but definitely worth it!

OSU student visit

The Blackwell is the ideal hub for your OSU student. My son and I were both nervous and excited the day before our multiple tours of campus. Our rooms were cozy and comfortable, providing the perfect space to unwind.
