It was a nice view. Building has decent height. About 50 floors or 700 feet I think. Nothing over the top, just a great view. It's a roof top deck as opposed to an enclosed floor so the sky is open above you. Cash only but they don't mention it until you're all the way at the top.

Just down the street from Fountain Square is the Carew Tower. You need to look at the architecture on the outside and well as the inside. Then go to the top to view the city below. If you are in Cincinnati make the time to visit this building. Not the Empire State Building but our version.

This a good activity for a clear day. The building is the second highest in Cincinnati. The views from the 49th floor observation platform are interesting in all directions, especially the river views. If you are new to Cincinnati a visit to the top allows you to orient yourself in the city and see the location of many of the... More

Carew tower used to be the tallest building in Cincinnati. Though dated, the décor gives one a glimpse of the past. It s position in the central business district allows a great view from its observation deck. If you go to the top the elevator ride is memorable and prepare for windy conditions unless its a dog day of summer

Breathtaking views await you when you make the trip to the 49th floor of the Carew Tower. There is a small cost but it is well worth it!

Such a fun thing to do in our local city! We love to make a trip down town to enjoy the view atop Carew Tower. The only view that can beat it, is from 75north coming from Kentucky. Beautiful, vibrant city.

Absolutely loved going to the top of the Carew tower. The views of the city were amazing! I think it is worth the trip and the small cost!

We stayed six (6) nights right before Christmas, due to home renovation project. The staff was courteous and friendly, and the Netherland is so conveniently located to all downtown activities/restaurants.

You get a wonderful view of Cincy, both on the Ohio and KY sides. The place is not wheelchair accessible though and my mother had to brave the last floor on stairs to get to the roof. But it was worth the view for her!!!
