They've improved the visiting hours!

I remember last year I stopped into the Custom House Tower, and the Mariott folks said there was only one public tour offered per day, and it filled up early.

On a whim, I saw the sign yesterday for "Sunset Tours" at 6 pm, and sure enough, it was open. Tickets are $7.50.

It was definitely an amazing view, and even cooler to actually go to the top of such a recognizable and historic building. They have some tables up there to just hang out, and it wasn't crowded at all.

Am I misremembering, or was there supposed to be a guarantee of public access to the observation deck when Marriott bought the vacant building from the city?

The Custom House is a hidden gem - the view is spectacular, and the old federal edifice itself is most impressive. And they have a FALCON-CAM!
