Am in Columbus for both football GO BUCKS and on business. I always stay here.

While probably not a 5 "star" hotel, it is real nice. The staff is partially comprised of OSU students and they bend over backwards to serve. The fact that the hotel is in the shadow of the Horseshoe makes it special for me. So if you are a Michigan fan, stay somewhere else or better yet, stay home.

Thanks,

Stayed one night on 01/23/12 at the Blackwell. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The room had all the amenities and had a comfortable bed. The work desk area in the room is very spacious and the Internet access was excellent.The staff at the hotel were polite and took great care of all my requests.
Breakfast at the Bistro Restaurant downstairs was good and priced moderately. The Blackwell is centrally located on the OSU campus and is a perfect spot to stay in. I recommend the Blackwell for any visits to Columbus,OH

My son and I visited the OSU on January 20. We chose The Blackwell because is physically located ON the campus (North Campus). The entire campus is within relatively easy walking distance.

I was impressed, and highly recommend this for anyone visiting OSU. The hotel is equal (in some ways better) than any Hilton business hotel. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. My son and I had two queen-sized beds, and our room had two desk areas. The desks had plenty of electrical outlets, plus a direct cat-5 internet connection. However, the wireless relies on the OSU system and it is AWESOME. Your hotel-provided guest access provides you with access anywhere on the campus.

As to the other points of the hotel, the bathrooms are the "normal" size, but include nice amenities, including a real hairdryer and high-end soaps, etc. The in-room coffee maker was a nice Keurig-like system, and included hot cocoa and teas.

The hotel has a nice gift shop, which is open 24 hours. Lots of snacks, drinks and toiletries.

We only ate one meal at the hotel-affiliated restaurant, Bistro. The breakfest buffet is nice, and priced similarly to other hotel restaurants.

I really liked the hotel, which was a great value. Don't go anywhere else!

We enjoyed a Buckeye basketball game and enjoyed spending time with our Ohio State student since this hotel is on Ohio State's campus.
