Right in our historic fountain square. You can take elevator to near top, then walk last 2 floors to overlook. Best view of the city.

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

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.

I grew up in Cincinnati and had never been to the top of the Carew Tower so on this trip it was near the top of my to-do list. I was not disappointed! Up 47 floors in an elevator and then a walk of 3...More

Entering Carew Tower is like stepping back in time. It's a great Art Deco structure with a lot of it's original charm. Directions to the observation deck were a little incomplete - it's on the 49th floor, but the elevator only goes to 45. We...More

We enjoyed the views from the top of the tower. It was, however, a bit on the pricey side for 15 minutes of looking at the city although I don't regret doing it.

While in Cincinnati for the weekend, we wanted something to do in the morning before heading for home. My wife found this observation deck so we decided to check it out. The ride to the 45th floor is very fast. You then have the option...More

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
