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!

I highly recommend spending the $2.00 to go out on the observation deck - on a beautiful day you can see for miles, and it may be the best view of Cincinnati.

For just two dollars you get to explore the observation deck of the Carew tower, at the 49th floor. The view of Cincinnati´s rolling hill is just breathtaking, and I would recommend any first time visitor to Cincinnati to go there. I went there on a rainy day, and it the view was still breathtaking, leading me to believe that... More

With two dollars in my hands, i entered Cincinnati on an adventurous high. Where else to go, I say, other than Carew Tower? Through the entrance and up the elevator, my anticipation grew with each floor I climbed. Great elevator. Great people. On the observation deck, i felt like i could touch the sky. It was magical, and safe. The... More

For $2 it was really cheap to go up. The first elevator was fine but the second one you have to take to get to the top was super creepy and scary. I did not realize that it was open air observation deck which scared me but my husband loved.

The observation deck has 360 views of the Cincinnati and northern Kentucky area. Worth the $2 charge.

We took the elevator up to the 45th floor and had to take the stairs up to the 49th due to the elevator being broken. You are charged $2 a person, but it's totally worth it. I'm scared of heights but felt totally safe on the rooftop. It was a clear day so we had a great view of the... More

My husband and I were staying in Cincinnati and had a couple of hours to kill. Neither of us had ever been to the observation deck on Carew tower before so we decided to check it out. I am so glad we did! We had amazing views and spent way more time up there than I though we would. We... More
