It took us a little bit to get it figured out how to get to the tower elevator since a hotel wraps around it. Helpful people continued to direct us, and we got to see the luxurious hotel and shops along the way. Two elevators,...More

During the day, you can stop in and see the beautifully decorated public rooms -- lobby, banquet rooms, staircases, etc. (Don't bother with the old hotel rooms.) Be prepared to climb some stairs to see it properly.

The overall art deco design of the building is beautiful. The elevator ride was kind of trippy for me but it was worth it.

You may not be on top of the world, but you're on top of the city of Cincinnati with views over the hilltops in every direction. Our grandkids enjoyed looking down at the other buildings and seeing the Ohio River curving under the bridges on...More

The Carew tower is a great way to get a full 360 view of Cincinnati, the Ohio River and even Northern Kentucky. It is only $4 per person to get in! Accessible via elevator, stairs are optional!! 48 stories high!!

For only $4/person, you get an entirely different view of Cincy. Carew Tower is an older building in the heart of town. Public parking is available very nearby. Take the elevator to the 45th floor, walk around a couple of hallway corners, board a small...More

This is the best place to get panoramic 360 degree views of the city, river and surrounding hills and river towns. It's literally the best way to see the town!

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!
