“Best overall view of the city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Walking into the lobby is like stepping back in time. Beautiful! Then take 2 fast elevator rides, walk up final flight of stairs, pay $2, and you arrive at a large viewing deck. Gorgeous views of every part of the city and riverfront. Only downfall is that it closes at 5pm. Would love to see the views at night!

“top of the world cincy style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a beautiful old building and it is a quick ride up to the top and a few steps later and you are on top of Cincinnati. Looking out over the Ohio River Valley you can see everything from the hills of Kentucky to the Seven Hills of Cincinnati. A wonderful way to spend the day exploring downtown Cincy and the price is right, at only $2 per person. Beautiful views of every side of the city.

“What a View!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

For $2 this is a can't miss. Old building, great architecture, bit of an adventure to ride two elevators and climb the last bit to the top and emerge outside. Amazing views of the river, ballparks, Great American Insurance building.

“"2nd" tallest building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

The old tiny elevator up the last couple of flights is so nostalgic. If the elevator frightens you there is always the stairs! You get the best view of the city.

“Must See When Downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

The 49th floor of Carew Tower offers an unobstructed 360 degree view of Cincinnati for only $2. Well worth the price of admission, especially on a clear day. Great for pictures, especially panoramics.
