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

We were at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument across the street and were told about the Terminal Tower observation deck (which is an interesting place to stop by as well). You get your tickets for the elevator ride at the customer service desk in the mall, then go back out the front of the buidling to board the first elevator... More

Just a beautiful old building. Was just there for the International Film Festival and had a chance to admire it again. It's a shame that most of the nicer shops that used to be there are gone. But, especially at film festival time, there is a buzz in the air and lots of people out and about. .
