We went into the building to see the interior architecture and to find the I Love Cincinnati store. Most of the retail spots are empty, which was sad to see. I'm sure Covid played a part in that. We noticed that there was a sign stating there was an observation level, so we tried to find out how to get up there. Once we figured out where to go, we were disappointed to discover that the observation area was closed, so there was no way we could get up there.

Just spoke to the security desk at the Carew Tower 513.241.3888
According to the security personnel the observation deck is closed and is most likely permanently closed.
This is very sad as it was one of the first places I took my sons when we visited and one of the best places to bring children and out of town guests.

I've been to the top of the tower to view the world from a birds eye a few times and just discovered that my mother has never had the experience so I'm hoping the viewing platform will be opening again soon

The website states to wait for information on 2021 Spring, gives a number that they do not answer or give any information, they may be closed forever. I guess it is another Covid excuse for mediocrity.

Attempted a visit but the observation deck has been closed and is closed indefinitely. Unfortunately didn’t see this information posted anywhere before we went. We did go to the I Love Cincinnati store for a couple small souvenirs.

Whenever people come to visit me, the first place I take them is to the top of Carew tower. It is one of the rare places you have open rooftop views of the entire city. You can look out across the river into Kentucky, or look north to the Over the Rhine area and take in views of the hills and river. If you have someone there to point out the sights, even better.

I love Cincinnati and blog about it often. Carew Tower is one of my must-see’s in a city full of many great attractions.

Accessed via the Netherland Plaza Hotel, this is a must see. It's free of charge for hotel guests and you can take in the views of the city day or evenings (up to 7pm) - very impressive.

The building is beautiful, love that it was a step back in time with the old post office signs and mail shoots. It would be nice if there was more signage by the elevator. Having never been there before we weren't sure where to go. Once we got up there it was pretty cool. We loved how open it was.
We were shocked they only take Cash. Really they can't get a Square app for the lady up there??? It would be nice if it was noted downstairs that it's cash only, and even where to go! We agreed that we would have been annoyed had we not had enough cash when we got to the top!
