One of the places that's worth to visit on sunny day in Cincinnati. Great view to the city, Kentucky and some Indiana.

The hours listed online were not correct ... I arrived with only 15 minutes to spare! Cash only, which I did not see anywhere until arriving at the top. The building is an art deco masterpiece that looks to be in need of some tlc in many places. To get to the top, you take two elevators ... the first... More

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?
