It was a great view of Cincinnati. My one major complaint was one of the elevators was not working right. I had gotten in and it went down a bit then stopped and opened again. It was for some reason I think stuck. I had to wait for another elevator to come up because I was not going to get... More

Overview of downtown, the Reds stadium, the Bengals stadium, the Ohio River. Just a small fee, and a bit of an adventure to navigate your way to the top. Its always fun.

Interesting point to start, from the highest building you will be able to have a look of Cincinnati and its extension. From here, with a small map (consider the wind at 49th floor!) you will be able to chose main stages of your Cincinnati visit!

Now the 2nd tallest building in Cincinnati, The Carew Tower is a beautiful Art Deco masterpiece. Take the elevator to the top, then up a small stairway to a great view of Cincinnati and the Northern Ky area. It costs $2-$4 for the observation deck, but well worth the view. The Historic Roebling Suspension bridge, stadiums, and Ohio River spread... More

One of the places that's worth to visit on sunny day in Cincinnati. Great view to the city, Kentucky and some Indiana.

The hours listed online were not correct ... I arrived with only 15 minutes to spare! Cash only, which I did not see anywhere until arriving at the top. The building is an art deco masterpiece that looks to be in need of some tlc in many places. To get to the top, you take two elevators ... the first... More

Spectacular views up there. It's neat to see just where everything is from that view point and see where you want to go next . We took the elevator up to the 45 th floor then the stairs to the viewing deck. I'm not a fan of elevators but this one was pretty smooth considering how far it had to... More

You get a good 360 view of the city, but it is an antiquated building and elevator. Poorly marked from the street. Cash only to enter.

Walked the stairs for lung cancer and seen a new side of this building. Take the time and walk them if you can it's beautiful
