When we got all the way to the observation deck, we saw a sign that said "no credit cards accepted, cash only". The woman at the desk could have cared less... We went back down to the ground floor and withdrew $ from the ATM (which only dispenses $20 increments) and returned to the observation deck. The elevator we had... More

Only 49 stories, but for my 7 year old who never saw a skyscraper it was perfect. The 2nd elevator to get up the last 4 floors is a Little scary, but ok

Pictures from the top came out great. What a wonderful panoramic view of the surrounding area for a $2 fee. Remember to take cash, though, no credit cards or checks!!!

After being gone from Cincinnati for 15 years we recently purchased another home there. My daughter and I took the kids on a tour of the city. The Carew tower has an amazing view from the roof top. Much more so than when my children were small. I really enjoyed showing my grand kids all the sights I took their... More

This is the best place in the city to get a 360 view from up high. It's cheap too. Just $2 per person, and it's only open during the day. It's kind of a secret. There were only 6 people up there when we went.

Nice way to see how the city of Cincinnati is laid out. Only $2 per person, well worth it. We had some free time before a Reds game, so we were already paying for parking, we simply walked over to the Carew Tower. Right near Fountain Park, so you can view that too.

I don't know if it is worth the amount of money you pay to go up to this. You have to pay parking plus the ticket to go up to the tower. There is a coffee shop at the top but it is pricey. The view is nice because it's 360 degrees but really is there that much to see... More

Beautiful views from the top, a great way to orient yourself to the city. The fee is reasonable and it worth a quick trip up to the top.

This is such a cheap thing to do in our city. It's a really fun view and worth the time if your already downtown.

Like any other high rise with views of the city. Okay for the price- did enjoy all the connecting sidewalks from the Hilton to many areas. This is ideal during inclement weather or the heat!
