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.

In every city there are a hand full of must see places and this is one of them for Cincy. Spectacular views of downtown as well as the stadiums and across the river into Kentucky. You can see almost everything from up there. You take an elevator almost to the top and go a few floors on steps to get... More

This doesn't take long to get to the top and see everything. You can everything in all directions and is really pretty cool. I have been going to Cincy my whole life, but this gives you a whole new perspective. Worth the short trip to get there.

It is definitely worth going there if you appreciate the view from the highest building in Cincinnati. You can see every part of the city, how the Ohio river curves, etc. ... However the way the place is manged can be improved; the opening hours on Internet are not accurate and the first time I went there I was too... More

Carew Tower is a one-of-a-kind tower in Cincinnati. Built as a prototype "city within a city" (think Rockefeller Center on a smaller scale), Carew is a historical masterpiece. The views of the city and surrounding suburbs and landscape are amazing. A wonderful example of Art Deco design. Also, be sure to check out the Louis Grell murals in the Hilton... More

It's just FUN. See this wonderful city and river views. Pretend you'e Deborah Kerr or Cary Grant and just enjoy the experience. Why not?

Seeing Cincinnati, part of Northern Kentucky and the Ohio river laid at your feet from the observation deck of the Carew Tower is breathtaking. You can clearly see the vast array of architecture in downtown Cincy. You can see the rolling river and might even see a barge traversing to or fro. There are limits to when you can visit... More

This is a great place to see over the city. It used to be the tallest building in Downtown Cincinnati, not sure if it still is. The first elevator is fast than you have to get on a much smaller one for the last few floors. I am not a fan of high places but I felt very safe. Beautiful... More
