We went up the carew twice this visit. It's only $4 a person with 25cent look out machines. They aren't even necessary. You get a great view 360 degrees. The gift shop is sparse, but the man was really nice. Elevators most of the way...More

To get here you have to find the Hilton Hotel Netherland Plaza. Find the mall area inside and take the main elevators to the 45th floor. From there you'll take another elevator to the 48th and then stairs one flight up to the observation deck....More

This was a wonderful place for seeing spectacular views of Cincinnati and the Kentucky Border. We were lucky enough to have a beautiful clear day to look our over all sides. View of Ohio River and bridges into Kentucky were great.

Was a little hard to find but cost only $4 with an awesome view of the entire city and the Ohio river. Was a cheap fun thing to do.

Ride the very small old elevator to the top and view the city. Just don't touch the railing during a storm!

From the entrance door, to the mall area and up to the Observation Deck (in a tiny elevator) I LOVE this building.

Really wanted to get a good view of Cincinnati, and this was perfect for that. The elevators were a little scary--especially the one that takes you from 45-49. It is not clearly stated that you have to pay for it until you get to the...More

My cousins were in town from Missouri. They have never been to Cincinnati, so I took them to the top of the Carew for good look around. I am pretty knowledgeable about our lovely city and was able to give them a pretty thorough overview...More

A little hidden treasure in Cincinnati. Probably one of the least expensive things to do in the city is the 49th floor Observation Deck.You can see for miles. Highly recommended! And don't miss looking around inside the building as well. Beautiful Art Deco Style.

The observation deck provides a 360 degree view of downtown and the surrounding areas. Many locals don't even know that the deck is open to the public. It may be cash only so be prepared.
