How to Get There
I accidentally left my briefcase on their airport shuttle. I called the hotel in a panic to see if they knew where it was. They found it on the shuttle and they had the shuttle drive it back to me at the airport before my plane departed!
We stayed here for my son's OSU Orientation. Incredibly helpful and friendly staff from the valet staff to the front desk. Great room with a nice view of the stadium. Perfect location for visiting OSU! We will definitely stay there again!
We have relatives who live in Columbus, so we have stayed in this hotel several times while visiting them. It is infinitely nicer in every way than the chain hotels in the area.
The rooms are quite spacious and well-appointed; there is Prairie-style decor all around (we had a large Louis Sullivan plaque in our room, and there are Motawi tile plaques on view when the elevator doors open on each floor). There's a good restaurant inn the building, and there is valet parking at the front door. Many (all?) of the workers are students, and everyone is friendly and helpful.
We stayed at The Blackwell for our son's Graduation from The Ohio State University. We had seen it many times while visiting and thought it appropriate to stay there for Graduation. We were lucky enough to win the lottery for available rooms. It was the perfect location to stay, as our rooms overlooked The Shoe. Staff were very professional, welcoming and the hotel was very well maintained and clean. I would definitely recommend The Blackwell and hope to be able to stay there again when we return for a football game.
I very much enjoyed my stay! My room had a view of the Shoe and was super spacious. I showed to a pre filled ice bucket and print out of the next days weather. Everything was clean and comfortable. The fitness area has everything you would need for a basic workout. They really make you feel special here! I highly recommend for anyone staying in the Columbus area. They really know how to treat their guests!
