They had none of the amenities advertised. I even called a week prior to arriving and was told i would be able to enjoy the amenities. Come to find out when i checked in everything was a lie. I had to pay to valet park my own car!

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations during your stay. When booking directly with the hotel we are able to communicate all of our amenities and services that are being offered during your stay. Often, when booking through a third-party, amended services are not always communicated. We are currently offering a self-parking option in the parking garage as our valet services are not returning until August 1st. On all of our pre-arrival email letters as well as our confirmation letters we have been letting our guests know about parking, food and beverage options and what services our guest's are able to enjoy during their stays. Thank you-

very clean, quiet, and quality. Affordable luxury. Good fitness center, I used it every day with my family. It is in a good location, in the middle of OSU and next to major highway and interstate. Their valet service is great. No complains

The Blackwell is the place to stay when visiting The Ohio State University! The hotel is well maintained and the beds are comfortable! Yay! The walls are thin so expect some traffic as well as shower noise. Overall, I would highly recommend this establishment!
