The terminal tower is a Cleveland landmark. The observation deck is open on weekends in the summer season and while small offers some great views in all directions. It is inexpensive to visit. The lobby of the tower is also worth a look for its artwork. Deeper into the tower complex is a shopping mall, food court, movie theatre, and... More

The architecture is great, but the actual building is not really that exciting. Other than walking by and acknowledging the architecture, I wouldn't really place more effort than that.

It was very interesting to go up in the terminal tower. It was a small price, $5 a piece I think, to go to the observation deck. It was interesting reading about all the history and look out over the great city of Cleveland.

Tower City has an interesting find of inside shopping stores in a very vintage and tasteful shopping mall environment. This is worth the visit this historic place. You can go to the observation level and go to the top of Terminal Tower,after strolling through the mall.You can access the casino. You can see a movie. I would highly recommend to... More

Proposed to my girlfriend in the tower of love. Spectacular views of the city. It was a gorgeous day and very clear. You could see the Nuclear Power plant in Fairport Harbor. The remodeling of the observation deck is unbelievable. Very well done it looks original. The bathrooms were built for the time, so go before you know...go. Very easy... More

I come down here often and see more and more shops close up. Depending on when you come, you will see many people just kind of hanging around here. I hate to say it but I have come here to just get out of bad weather for a short time.With all the amazing things going on downtown, why can't they... More

If you can get a chance to go to the top of Terminal Tower TAKE IT! This is the very best view of downtown Cleveland, Lake Erie and the surrounding area. And the decor has been kept the same as when it was built in 1929 - classy and elegant.

So disappointed that the observation deck is not open during weekdays during the summer. A group of us who are touring the area of public square were expecting to go up to the observation deck but I could not believe that it is not open. July 2016

Stopped at Tower City Terminal Tower... Just a FYI You need to pay for tickets ($5 per person) online before you go there, we paid on our phones at the security desk before we went up the elevator. Also where we parked cost us $20 for the mall so unless you are shopping parking price is ridiculous! Also just so... More
