We visited this great old building the past weekend and it is breathtaking! It is opulence and style all rolled into one grand structure. They don't build them like this anymore!!

Go to the top and see a great scenic view of Cincinnati. If you are afraid of heights maybe not. You can feel the building move.

Elevator up then you have to walk a narrow stairwell to the top, but the view was worth it! Small admission fee, not a big deal.

Absolutely fantastic views of the entire city from the top of Cincinnati's tallest skyscraper, for next to nothing! A must-see while in town. Rarely crowded - you'll probably be the only ones up there. The hours are somewhat limiting, so plan accordingly. Not open in the evenings. Wish it was, would be neat to see the city in lights from... More

One of the tallest & oldest buildings in Cincinnati. An historic building that has old & multiple elevators to navigate. The view of the city from the top is amazing well worth a visit. Cost is $2.00.

This is an amazing view of the City, and a beautiful building. You are literally walking around the open roof of the second tallest building in the city. It's worth the trip just for the ride in the tiny elevator up the last four floors. It should be a part of your every trip to Cincinnati.

A great old building, mostly empty now unfortunately. But go to the top. The elevator is great and then the short hike... makes me happy.

$2 a person to get in, pretty nice view, a good little activity for 15-20 minutes. The elevator ride from floors 45-49 is interesting as the elevator can only hold like 3 people max!!! If you're afraid of heights, don't go here!!

The only disappoint for me was that the Great American Ballpark, which I really wanted to see, was blocked from view. Other than that, this observation deck provides the best view of the city! It's only $2 per person but they only accept cash and you pay when you get to the deck. I wish I knew that before I... More
