“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

A true gem in downtown Cincy. A trek up two elevators and then a flight of stairs gives you a great view of the city and across the river in Kentucky. It is definitely worth the two bucks and you can stay up there as long as you like. The only complaint is that it isn't open at night.

“Nice View of Cincinnati”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

After two elevator rides from floors 1-45, 45-48, and one last flight of stairs, you arrive at the 49th level overlooking Cincinnati, as well as a short distance across the river to the State of Kentucky. On a clear day, the view is impressive and worth the $2 per person fee.

“Great View on top.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Take the challenge and run, (walk) up the steps to the top. You can see three states from up there, even on a cloudy day. The view gives you a wonderful feeling for the city and you can see why the city was built close to the river.

“The grandest view of Cincinnati.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Not many cities have an opened observation area like this icon. It's beautiful in any weather. Best $2.00 you can spend.

“A truly beautiful, old building in downtown Cincy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

A tribute to Art Deco design and American ingenuity, this is a great building to visit. Be sure to check the history of the architecture and the restaurant and bar located inside for their lovely decor.
