Transportation Details

Your pickup and departure times will be confirmed by our representative. Our hotel shuttle is able to accommodate a maximum of 14 guests per trip. If space is not available, you will be given the option to wait for the next scheduled shuttle or to take a cab at your own expense (average rate one way is $25.00 per person plus gratuity). Guests who have not scheduled transportation within 24 hours, and are not able to be picked up, will be responsible for providing their own transportation. Any special requests that deviate from the schedule will be subject to availability and fees may apply.

To meet the Blackwell shuttle and driver upon arrival at Port Columbus, exit the terminal at the lower level, baggage claim area.  Once outside, cross over two lanes of traffic to the shuttle staging area.  Locate the "Off Airport Hotel Shuttles" signage, where the Blackwell van will be waiting or soon arriving.  The Blackwell shuttle is a dark red van with a large Blackwell "B" on the side.  Travel time between Port Columbus and the Blackwell (without traffic) is approximately 15 minutes.  

Town Car Service

The Blackwell Inn offers complimentary Town Car service (based on availability) in a three-mile radius of the hotel.  You can take the Town Car to Grandview Heights, to the Short North, to the other side of campus or the OSU Wexner Medical Center, all free of charge.  Town Car service outside of the three mile radius can be arranged for a fee.  Unfortunately, the Blackwell cannot provide transportation in and out of stadium and/or arena events due to the delayed traffic patterns; however, we would be happy to arrange for other (for hire) transportation if you desire.  Please contact Guest Services or complete the Blackwell e-Concierge request for further information.
