Contact our Concierge or Guest Services Representative at (614) 247-4050 or (866) 247-4003 to schedule your airport transportation at least 24 hours in advance. You may also schedule your airport transportation using our e-Concierge.

Your pickup and departure times will be confirmed by our representative. Our hotel shuttle accommodates 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 one-way rate starts at $30 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.   Contact Guest Services or complete the Blackwell e-Concierge request for further information.

To meet the Blackwell shuttle and driver upon arrival at CMH Airport, 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 a Blackwell van will be waiting or arriving soon. The shuttle is a dark red van with a large Blackwell "B" on the side. Travel time between CMH and The Blackwell Inn (without traffic) is approximately 15 minutes.  


In addition to airport transportation, The Blackwell Inn offers complimentary car service for our guests. This service is based on availability, extends for a three-mile radius of the hotel and is reserved for guests of the hotel only. You can visit Grandview Heights, Short North, the other side of campus, or the OSU Wexner Medical Center, all free of charge.  Car service outside of the three-mile radius can be arranged for a fee.

Unfortunately, The Blackwell Inn cannot provide transportation in and out of the OSU stadium or arena events due to the delayed traffic patterns; however, we would be happy to arrange for other (for hire) transportation if you desire. Contact Guest Services or complete the Blackwell e-Concierge request for further information.


The Ohio State University offers many alternate transit services. For more information on these options and the location of electric charging stations near The Blackwell Inn, visit their website.
