If you like art-deco architecture, this building is a must, both inside and out. There is an atrium walkway through the ground level of the building that is beautifully preserved. This alone is worth the visit.

Breathtaking view of Cincinnati from the top of Carew Tower! Super fast elevator to the top of the tower. Unbelievable views from every side of the tower stand. If you want to see more, just drop 25 cents into the mechanical binoculars. It's weird when you can stand close to the railing and not feel much wind, but then lean... More

Welcome to the 1930's. This place will you gasping at every turn with all of the Art Deco designed spaces throughout this hotel! Make sure you head to the 49th floor to check out the observation deck for a price of a few dollars. It's an amazing view.

Got a great view of the city from the observation deck. You can see the river, Kentucky and Ohio greenery, and all of downtown Cincinnati. Only 4$ for adults. You probably won't stay for more than 20 or 30 minutes. Back downstairs, be sure to visit the adjacent Hilton hotel. This is an Art Deco national treasure! The big restaurant,... More

I had not visited the observation deck of the Cards Tower since a 1st or 2nd grade field trip. Trying to see more of our home town. View is incredible, but the Cards Tower itself is a great art deco building to see.

This is the highest view point in Cincinnati. It's not the tallest, at only 49 stories, but it offers great views of the city. The price is right, and it's a good way to spend 30 minutes.

We stayed at the Hilton inside the Carew Tower. Both were great. Walking around Carew Tower is like walking around in the 1920s. Lots of very interesting spots. Top it off with going up to the very top and looking out at Cincinnati. 4 bucks but worth it.

Definitely worth the trip to the 49th floor! Beautiful views all around!!! Not a fan of the coin operated viewers, but I love the idea of them, they just never seem to work for my eyes.
