Reservations must be made now-I found that out when I tried to walk in,but call the day before & they'll escort you up. Look for the hawk's nest there-the family of Redtails keeps our pigeon population down.At one time it was the tallest building in New England.

This is just the best place to see all of Greater Hartford and the CT River. IF they are still allowing folks up for the view - it's worth asking. Plus it's a pretty cool old building.

Pretty cool when seeing it from the air. I've been taking flying lessons (small plane), when flying after sunset you can see the light that is eluminated for miles when flying into HFD Brainard Field. It's not bad seeing it from the top either..

I was stopped at the door and told I had to make an appointment to go up, despite the website saying it was open weekdays to the public during certain hours. I did not have time to spend waiting around to make an appointment so I just left. Would be nice if they let people know this ahead of time... More

Went there on a field trip with my high school sophmore and his AP History class. This was on one of our stops. One of the mom's husband was an executive there and he met us there and they brought us to the top of the tower. The views were spectacular of Hartford.

Beautiful views from the top. You must be able to climb stairs, because the elevator can only go up to a certain floor, then you get off and have to climb the steps. Free tour up to the top. If it is windy, be sure to bring a jacket (it is COLD up there!)

Nice view, but not much to the experience. Take an elevator up into the tower to look out.
