Critic Reviews



Nestled between the Fisher College of Business and the Ohio Stadium on The Ohio State University campus, The Blackwell could easily be mistaken for a dormitory or a classroom building at first glance. But behind an unassuming brick exterior lies a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel with a dedicated focus on the customer experience.



... beautifully appointed accommodations located on the Ohio State University campus, features a friendly staff, making for a warm introduction to the campus and the city. What sets them apart is their attention to the details that make for a perfect night's stay.



On the Ohio State University campus, this upscale hotel serves as the residence for Fisher College's executive education program. Decorated in a modified Mission style with soft tones and warm woods, the rooms have touches like plush bathrobes and pillow-top mattresses.
