Great views of the city and twice as high as the space nbeedle. No crowds and helpful staff. You can see Mt Rainer easily on a clear day

Amazing views of Seattle and surrounding area from the tallest building in the city. Well worth the admission fee which was less than $15 per adult.

Awesome Views that make the Space needle look like a toy. I would go on a weekend to avoid queueing (standing in line). There is also a Cafe at the top.

Great views over Seattle, but its a bit of a pfaff to get their with multiple elevators. The layout is a bit skew whiff as the placards telling you what's what are not actually in front of what you're looking at.

The Sky View in Columbia Center gives fantastic views of Seattle and is higher than the Space Needle. Clear days give fantastic views of Mt. Rainier as well. A bit pricey but worth a trip.

It was an amazing full view of the city. We also had lunch and drinks. We used a groupon and saved money on the elevator/entry fee.

We decided to opt for this rather than the much more expensive Space Needle and were not disappointed. We went on a Saturday afternoon and there was no queue/line and within a minute or so we exited the lift to see a fantastic view over...More

TIP: pick a clear day & look for The Columbia Center building if using a street map-- 701 5th Ave. The Sky View Conservatory is on the 73 floor of this Columbia Center building -- the tallest building in Seattle and among the tallest buildings...More
