We are bunch of tower fans. We do all of these, just go up and see the view. We weren't disappointed at all. Reasonable charge to go up, the wind added some fun. It was well worth it.

I stayed on the 23rd floor of the Foshay as part of the W, and went up one day to check it out. Very cool history here, I recommend going to the top floor if you are in here!

Really nice lobby, took the elevator to 30th Floor. Small museum and outdoor observation deck which affords good views of surrounding buildings. The lobby and elevators are very pretty.

It is open to the public. We paid $10 a person to go up. I believe that hotel guests go up for free.
