On the Ohio State University campus in Columbus, Ohio, the Blackwell Inn features a 24-hour fitness center, a full-service bistro serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, room service until midnight each day, and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.  A complimentary shuttle from the airport is available if you reserve in advance.  Parking at the hotel is $18 a day, or if don't plan on using your car while staying in Columbus, you can self-park at an OSU garage for $12.50 a day with no in and out privileges.  The Blackwell is a 15 minute walk from the Ohio Union, where the conference events will be.

To make reservations call 614-247-4000 and ask for the 2017 Political Networks Conference room rate, which is $159 a night (before taxes and fees) for either a Deluxe King or Two Queen Room.  We have a limited number of rooms available and the hotel is popular so we advise you to make your reservations as soon as possible. 

Additional rooms will be available to participants through OSU student housing at the rate of $60 a night.  More information regarding this housing option is forthcoming.
