“Fantastic views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

It's not well signposted but well worth the effort to seek out this place. $2 gets you the whole city at your feet. Amazing.

“Carew Tower”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Go up to 45 floor, then get out to take different smaller elevator to 48 floor. pay 2 dollars to view the city. It is a nice view. Maybe at night it would be better. However, the tower close at 7pm.

“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.
