The website states to wait for information on 2021 Spring, gives a number that they do not answer or give any information, they may be closed forever. I guess it is another Covid excuse for mediocrity.

Attempted a visit but the observation deck has been closed and is closed indefinitely. Unfortunately didn’t see this information posted anywhere before we went. We did go to the I Love Cincinnati store for a couple small souvenirs.

Whenever people come to visit me, the first place I take them is to the top of Carew tower. It is one of the rare places you have open rooftop views of the entire city. You can look out across the river into Kentucky, or look north to the Over the Rhine area and take in views of the hills and river. If you have someone there to point out the sights, even better.

I love Cincinnati and blog about it often. Carew Tower is one of my must-see’s in a city full of many great attractions.

Accessed via the Netherland Plaza Hotel, this is a must see. It's free of charge for hotel guests and you can take in the views of the city day or evenings (up to 7pm) - very impressive.

The building is beautiful, love that it was a step back in time with the old post office signs and mail shoots. It would be nice if there was more signage by the elevator. Having never been there before we weren't sure where to go. Once we got up there it was pretty cool. We loved how open it was.
We were shocked they only take Cash. Really they can't get a Square app for the lady up there??? It would be nice if it was noted downstairs that it's cash only, and even where to go! We agreed that we would have been annoyed had we not had enough cash when we got to the top!

The observation deck is hard to find there's not very much signage putting you to it. Just find the elevator Banks and go up to the top floor which is 45. Then you have to jump into another elevator behind it which is a tiny elevator that only holds like three or four people and go up three more floors. Then there's one flight of stairs to walk up to 49. Admission to the deck is $6. It's basically a rooftop with some telescopes up there in each corner. No gift shop or anything like that. It's very old-fashioned. See my pictures

It's an all in one stop for people visiting cincinnati. The building itself is beautiful "They just dont build 'em like this anymore" style grandeur. There are fancy restaurants on the lower levels, a little bit of shopping (including one of the only places in the city to get "cincinnati" souvenirs. You could even stay in the hotel within the building!
Finally, the views from the observation deck on the top of the building are incredible. (You can go to the observation deck separately from all the other locations within the tower. Although it is $6 per adult (children were less) to go out on the deck these days, so it's a bit pricy for what it is, it's still worth going if you have never seen it before.

This is a cool tower connected to the Hilton . There is shopping and restaurants to grab a quick bite to eat . There is an in overlook to see the city you reach by elevator . It is small are but very historic from the 1920s.
