This is such a fun view for locals or out-of-towners. Great way to really see the layout of the city, the curve of the river and northern KY. Very affordable and enjoyable. Right across from Fountain Square.

Go into the Hilton Building, that's this tower. Enjoy the Art Deco interior, and make sure you have some cash on hand for the tower. Get in the elevators and go up to the 45th floor. Then you'll have to get out and either find...More

Such a great experience to go the top of the Carew Tower. You can see forever from up there! A wonderful place to take visiting family and friends!

The tower provided an excellent bird's eye view of the city and the surrounding area. The sky was bright and this made it ideal for taking a lot of photographs.

To go up to the observation deck you have to take 2 elevators and one flight of stairs, then pay cash at the top. It only costs $4 and you get great views of the city. Definitely recommended.

When in Cincinnati you should pay a visit to one of it´s tallest buildings the Carew Tower which has a great Art Decco design, built on the 1930´s. Go up to the observation tower on the 49th level.

The entrance to this building has to be seen along with the art decor inside. The elevator takes you up to the observation deck. A small admission charge but worth the cost to be able to see the views around the city. There is no...More

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.

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!

Can you give tips on how to get up to the tower and where to park? I tried and was unsuccessful.

There is an underground garage under Fountain Square - park there. The banks of elevators are just off the main hall of the tower. The security guy can assist you with the direction, but it's quite easy. You take main... More
