This hotel is beautiful. Located in the heart of Ohio State's campus it give you an exquisite experience being in the heart and soul of it all. It does run pricey in the off season. Be sure to book your stay for football season here at the very least a year in advance as it books up within minutes. The Blackwell is a fan favorite though for those looking for a luxury experience in the midst of campus.

This is a fairly unique hotel property because it’s the only one of its kind. Designed with the college in mind, it’s definitely a must-stay hotel for OSU fans in town for any sporting event. Many of the rooms also feature views of the Ohio Stadium. Even the most basic rooms were huge with plenty of space to either work, relax or get ready for the game. There’s also a restaurant and full-service bar downstairs so you don’t have to mess with downtown to have a good time. The fitness center is fairly big with new, state-of-the-art equipment, but guests also have access to OSU’s on-campus Recreation and Physical Activity Center. Believe it or not, I also heard that The Blackwell is a popular wedding destination as well.

First to Review

This is a very unique property in Columbus. It’s located directly on the Ohio State campus and is actually owned by the university. It was built in part as an extension of the Fisher College of Business and named after Professor Roger D. Blackwell. It’s obviously a go-to spot for anyone that’s staying in the area for OSU-related activities, but it’s such a nice hotel that it’s worth the detour from downtown for something different. It’s in a great area too with the eclectic mix of shops and restaurants nearby for the students. The rooms feature, predictably, oversized desks and laptop safes but also added bonuses like plush bathrobes, opening windows, and minibars with Blackwell Blend coffee. Turn-down services are also a standard amenity provided by The Blackwell.
