Be sure to make a trip up to the Observation Deck. The views of downtown are some of the best you'll see. There is a fee to get to the observation deck ($5).

Lived in Cincinnati most of my life...but just recently went up to the observation deck on top of the Crew Tower. My two daughters (7, 10) and I were eating lunch downtown when we decided that afterwards we would try the observation deck. The girls...More

Awesome view and when we got to the top we found out Veterans and their families are free. Thanks! Definitely worth the $4 charge if you aren't a veteran!

It's definitely worth heading to the top of the Carew Tower for excellent views of Cincinnati. It costs just $4 per person to access the roof - the man at the top was a little grumpy and unfriendly but the views were great!

.Worked in the Tower for 5 years on the 37th & 38th floor. They installed window air conditioners in some of the windows which had metal frames. Think what could have happened if a A/C unit fell! We celebrated the 1975 & 76 Reds World...More

I love the architecture of the Carew Tower. Makes me think of film noir and Superman. It has a beautiful atrium and lots of places to explore. Hathaway's Diner is a friendly throwback restaurant. I get my glasses from Thoma and Sutton and clothes from...More

It is worth the time to stop and take a trip up to the observation deck for wonderful views of the city. Easy to miss from the street level, but once inside, there are plenty of signs to guide your way up.

Carew Tower provides great views of the city for a very reasonable price. But MAKE SURE YOU HAVE CASH. Only cash is accepted. It can be confusing to find your way to the top but the workers in the building are happy to help. It...More

Most of the way up is by elevator. The last 2 flights are stairs only (unless there is another way I don't know about). The flights are short, maybe 8 steps. I would give them a call. It is so worth doing if you can!

There is an underground garage under Fountain Square - park there. The banks of elevators are just off the main hall of the tower. The security guy can assist you with the direction, but it's quite easy. You take main... More
