The view from the 360 Observatory is incredible, on a cloudy day, a clear day, sunset or after dark . If you are feeling adventurous, I recommend you try the Tilt.

"It's ok."

After visiting the Skydeck in a previous business, this didn't live up to my expectations. While the admission price was reasonable, I didn't find the observatory up to par. It looked tired and in need of renovations. The best view is to the south yet you can barely get a good look at it since tilt and the screened area take up most of that side. I'll go back to the Skydeck next time.

"Choose a clear night to view the sunset"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

Someone we met in a restaurant in Washington, D.C. suggested we view the sunset and Chicago skyline from the observation deck of the John Hancock Bldg. instead of sears tower, as the view was just as majestic at less cost. We got tickets which entitled us to a drink at the bar, while we watched the sunset. Unfortunately, the bar room was booked for a private event, so we got our money back. However, the Chicago skyline is beautiful, although clouds in the western distance prevented us from watching the sun set.

There was low visibility but we had the place to ourselves. The fog was keeping the crowds away. We did not do the tilt.

"Good views and wasn't crowded in the early AM - be aware of photo purchase"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

Views are great. It is not hard to get to and if you go in the early morning it is not crowded. Be aware of the photos. We purchased a digital download only to come home and find out the photos were unavailable even though we paid extra for them. You can do the tilt where you face a section of glass that tilts 30 degrees forward looking down at the street for an extra $7 per person.
