Excellent room, well laid out. Plenty of work space. Climate controls a little hard to understand, but worked fine once you figure them out. Very comfortable bed. Excellent selection of bath products. Would highly recommend the hotel.

Stayed at The Blackwell several times and we LOVE it. The staff is amazing! I needed to take my daughter to the ER and they were right there with a car and driver and got us to the hospital super fast.
