“Hidden Treasure!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

Went to Cincinnati for business... staying in one of the biggest metropolitan on the east coast... the city centre looked so desolated.... And since there aren't many things going on here... I would strongly recommend Carew Tower... the panorama is sooooo beautiful... you can see the river, Kentucky and even fall colors during the season.. The fee is almost nothing.. I only wish.. it would be easier to navigate to the top.. I almost got lost in the shopping mall, trying to find my way up...

“Wow a hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

There is an outdoor observation deck at the top of Carew Tower and it was sooo nice. We were able to see almost all of town and over into Kentucky. Cheap at $2 for this nice view.

“Great View!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

A coworker of mine took me up to the tower while showing me around the city. WOW what a view. The way up is high let me tell you. You take the main elevator to level 40 something (I honestly cannot remember how many floors there are) and then you take a VERY OLD VERY TINY elevator to level 40 something else and then you walk maybe 1 or 2 levels via stairs to get to the tippy tippy top. On a summer day the smaller elevator gets hot and muggy and can only fit about 3 or 4 people MAYBE. There is a small room before you exit to see the view and this room does have AC some Cinci maps and some tower souvenirs. I think the fee is something like $5 which isn't too bad I just wish they offered a glass of water after all that. But once you get out to see the sights wow! It's a complete 360 you can see the baseball and football stadiums, Mt. Adams everything! It's great! If it's a hot day...wear sun block b/c there really isn't any shade at least not at 12:00 pm on a summer day but wow that view!

“A lot of history Art Deco treasure.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

The Hilton is in a beautiful Art Deco building and our room was updated with a vintage feel. The Carew Tower observation deck is nice with views of Cincinnati and surrounding area.
