My family and I had never been to Cincinnati before, so we searched for a place to get a great view of the area. We were not disappointed! The tower itself is very nice, as well as the elevator to the 45th floor. After that,...More

Would be nice if they had more eateries, stores in this place. I heard they did once but got rid of them for a parking garage.

Awesome view of the city of Cincinnati, river, and Northern Kentucky. Very cool place to take tourists and locals should visit at least once.

Visited this place twice. Worth it to see around downtown and across the river in KY. On a clear day you can make out the coasters from Kings Island.

Great place to cool off and look at this art deco hotel, now the Hilton. We did not know about the tower, not really advertised. We walked around the mall a bit, but found it deserted with only a few shops. But we were here...More

This is not the easiest place to get to-parking is tricky on the street and it took some wandering to find the entrance. The building itself is 1920s art deco and is in excellent repair-the craftsmanship is stunning. You need to take an elevator to...More

Carew tour is a great example of Art Deco architecture. Come in for the shopping at the mall, then come up one level and marvel at the article tubal detail. The real gem , though, is the views from the top. Far a couple bucks,...More

Neat to get a bird's eye view of the city and surrounding areas in Northern Kentucky. Spend all the time you want for a small fee.

Most of the way up is by elevator. The last 2 flights are stairs only (unless there is another way I don't know about). The flights are short, maybe 8 steps. I would give them a call. It is so worth doing if you can!

There is an underground garage under Fountain Square - park there. The banks of elevators are just off the main hall of the tower. The security guy can assist you with the direction, but it's quite easy. You take main... More
