Carew Tower is a one-of-a-kind tower in Cincinnati. Built as a prototype "city within a city" (think Rockefeller Center on a smaller scale), Carew is a historical masterpiece. The views of the city and surrounding suburbs and landscape are amazing. A wonderful example of Art Deco design. Also, be sure to check out the Louis Grell murals in the Hilton... More

It's just FUN. See this wonderful city and river views. Pretend you'e Deborah Kerr or Cary Grant and just enjoy the experience. Why not?

Seeing Cincinnati, part of Northern Kentucky and the Ohio river laid at your feet from the observation deck of the Carew Tower is breathtaking. You can clearly see the vast array of architecture in downtown Cincy. You can see the rolling river and might even see a barge traversing to or fro. There are limits to when you can visit... More

This is a great place to see over the city. It used to be the tallest building in Downtown Cincinnati, not sure if it still is. The first elevator is fast than you have to get on a much smaller one for the last few floors. I am not a fan of high places but I felt very safe. Beautiful... More

This observation area was so much fun. There are no tour guides, you walk yourself around but it's so cool because you can see so much of the city 360 degrees around.

The Carew Tower itself is a gem of a historical building. Climb to the top and see the impressive 360 degree view! Only thing I didn't notice was a "map" of some of the sights for those that were not familiar with points of interest. Have cash handy for entrance and souvenir shop.

The whole building is amazing from it's location to fountain square, to the plaza and the hotel, to the amazing views of downtown. The Hilton-Netherland Plaza has some of the most beautiful rooms I've ever seen such as the Hall of Mirrors and Orchids at the Palm Court. I have done several videos inside the hotel and it is stunning.... More

To have a lifelong impression of the fabulous panoramic view of Cincinnati and the surrounding areas, just do not miss to visit Carew Tower, in the heart of downtown, Cincinnati, Ohio. It would be more in the fitness of things if you can manage time to enjoy the views during day as well as night time. We were there during... More

Took a group of 8 including kids as young as 2. Everybody loved it, including looking down at the "ants" on the skating rink where we had just been, and seeing some of the other sights we have seen from "high up." $4 for adults, kids to 5 were free, kids 6 to 13 were $2, so the whole thing...

Everyone should go to the top of the Carew Tower to see the city of Cincinnati. I took my nephew and we spend over an hour seeing the city!
