The building is beatiful and the views from the top are very nice. You can see for miles in every direction.

After spending a lifetime in and around Cleveland, I finally made it to the observation deck. It was the best $5 I ever spent in Cleveland. Even on a cloudy day, the view was endless. Great photo opps! The Terminal Tower itself is still a striking piece of art deco architecture - inside and out. There was plenty of foot... More

We visited the Terminal Tower Observation Deck on a beautiful May Sunday. We could really see out for miles in all directions. It is a bit confusing on where to meet for the tour so the best suggestion I have is to enter on the north entrance off of Public Square.

The building is beautiful with impressive architecture. Walked around all areas and took as many photos as I could to get a feel for the history of the building. While taking photos in the main lobby, a Cleveland City Police office kindly asked me to stop taking photos. His reasons ranged from the tenants not wanting photos taken of their... More

The Terminal Tower Observation Deck is a must see when in downtown Cleveland. The deck is open to the public from early April to mid December; Saturdays from 12 to 5 & Sundays from 12 to 4 p.m. Only 50 tickets are sold for every 30 minute time block. You really should purchase tickets (for $6.27 each in March,2014) in... More

I am from Cleveland but it took me 38 years to make it to the top of the Terminal Tower! This really is a beautiful building and a major landmark for us Clevelanders. A five dollar ticket gets you to the top and shows you the city from a new perspective. It is immaculately clean on the observation deck and... More

I took my grandchildren to the top of this Cleveland landmark. So much has changed in Cleveland. The entrance hall is still lovely, as are the art deco elevator doors that take you to the top of the tower. The observation deck is a step back in time. The deck consists of small windows looking out over Cleveland, with a... More

It's awesome to see this old building still look amaing especially at night with the lights. It has an amAzing few from it's observation deck and I hope they can keep it open. It's got some amaing history behind and has a pretty nice mall attached.

I loved going to the Observation Tower and looking at the surrounding views of Cleveland. You can see inside the ball fields and get to know the layout of the city. The bird's eye view is well worth the short wait to get in and up the elevators to the top. I even got to purchase a book from an... More
