I'm looking through the numerous 5 star reviews and thinking maybe I just missed something. The service was definitely on-par with a good upscale hotel. The decor throughout the hotel, including the rooms probably needs a bit of a refresh. I wouldn't say it's "dated" but maybe that its just a touch tired. Or maybe it's not my style, who...

I wasn't sure if I wanted to stay in a hotel on a college campus for an anniversary night. But I was pleasantly surprised. This is the first that we've stayed in a 4 star and it was worth it. The only complaint I have is that I heard a vacuum running too early in the morning. That's never happen...

The Blackwell just crosses the threshold of what I call a luxury hotel. The staff is great. The amenities are good. The restaurant is good. The bar/lounge is just ok. Room service is available and we were happy with the creme brouleé. Bath robes were comfy and appreciated. Importantly, the bed and pillows were excellent and so comfortable that I...

I had the privilege of staying here for a conference and was totally impressed. The lobby was inviting, the room was exquisite, the restaurant was classy, and the location was prime. I would highly recommend this hotel. Consider calling the front desk directly and asking for their best rate; you may beat the online price.

We were in Columbus for a Christmas party and decided to stay on OSU's campus for a change. What a nice experience. The hotel room was very comfortable and the staff was most helpful. The hotel lacks a pool and exercise room, but you can arrange for a pass for the campus facility for these at the front desk. They...

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. Everything about the hotel, the staff, the restaurant, the room, and the location was great. When I selected this hotel, on a college campus, I thought it would be good but it was exceptional. Breakfast buffet was very good with selections for everyone. Great oatmeal and the best bread pudding. The hotel staff accommodated...
