    Fantastic Hotel Weekend at the Blackwell

    Hotel and all areas that we were staying in or passing through were very clean. I have stayed in a lot of hotels through the years and the overall clean and pristine appearance everywhere reminded me of high end hotels I have stayed before. Highly professional staff and the front end services related to valet were incredible. Opening doors, highly attentive to guests going in or out, day or night - it just impressed me that those little things that are often 2nd rate were absolutely on point here at the Blackwell. The only ding I gave to the overall visit was their handling of Covid 19 and their restaurant. They didn't offer breakfast as a result of this and with so many places working around Covid, I was a little bummed. That said - I don't know their reasoning and with everything this virus has disrupted, it was a personal thing and not something that signifies that the hotel failed to live up across the board. The rooms are huge, comfortable and outstanding. The location on North Campus....perfect for anything you might need. Will absolutely be returning to stay here and enjoy a quality of service that is fantastic with a price that is very budget friendly.

    Excellent!

    The Blackwell was terrific! Everything was very clean with social distancing measures in place. Hand sanitizer was readily available and all staff and patrons were wearing masks. The front desk and valet staff were friendly and efficient as were the folks in the restaurant for carry out service. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I will stay here again!

    Great hotel nice location must pay to park

    The Blackwell is an outstanding hotel with top notch staff. The rooms are very nice and comfortable and quiet. There is room service a nice restaurant and bar. The hotel is located on the Ohio State University campus and is centrally located in Columbus so alot of nice restaurants and bars are very close by. My room overlooked the football stadium which was cool. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to anything within a 3 mile radius which is a nice touch. The only thing I did not like was you must pay for parking and that is not advertised so it is surprising and it hikes up your bill. You can either valet your car for $25 or pay a steep hourly rate. Hourly rate? You're staying overnight at the very least not running a quick errand!
