I grew up in Cincinnati so I've had sevaral trips to the top of the Carew Tower in my life. It is always a great experience - even if you have only a short time to visit. In 2015 it was $5 admission. It is worth lots more, especially if you have a good amount of time. Might I suggest... More

From the Carew Tower you can see all over the downtown area and the City of Cincinnati. I did not stay in the Hotel, but I have been in the building and it has been around for quite some time.

I spent more than an hour up top exploring the City of Cincinnati from above. We were able to observe the Cincinnati Bengals practicing on their practice field, the traffic zipping by on I-71 and I-75 and so much more from up top.

This is one of the oldest building in Cincinnati. The view from atop of the building is great. You can see Northern Kentucky all the bridges and both stadiums

Although it is not the tallest building in Cincinnati anymore, it still offers the best view of the city. Their is a charge to of a couple of dollars but it was worth it.

A not to miss view of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. A jewel of the city. It needs to be better advertised.

This seems to be one of the few things downtown that is open past 5pm. Easy access, some stair climbing required. Good views of downtown. Pricing very reasonable.

One of my favorite places to visit in December, as we wait for Santa, his reindeer and his elf to rapell from behind Macy's. I think there is an option of getting off to another elevator for the last few flights of stairs or walking. Beautiful sunset views.
