Iconic Tower, little else

As the area is being redeveloped (yet again, this time by Hawai'i Pacific University), there's little to do or see here. You can climb the stairs to see the lookout (if open) or... read more

As the area is being redeveloped (yet again, this time by Hawai'i Pacific University), there's little to do or see here. You can climb the stairs to see the lookout (if open) or eat at two very ordinary chain restaurants. The rest of the space will be developed by the school for its students and most of the area is...

Looks like this place is about to be tear downed or some thing like that. The tower was still there...but there was nothing to see...except construction stuff surrounding the whole place. Definitely not worth to visit there.

All of the store areas were closed due to remodeling but got to go up the tower with a great view of the bay and the city. wish we were able to visit a little more there.

Don't go near this place at the moment. We looked online and it appeared that some shops at the Aloha Tower Marketplace were still open. Got there and it was deserted - apart from 2 restaurants preparing for lunch service the place was empty. Not reopening until next month.

We have visited Aloha Tower Marketplace every year for almost 10 years. This trip, we were sad to see so many stores had closed, and even Gordon Biersch (which has a great view of the harbor) seemed to be struggling for business. I hope the new owner, Hawai'i Pacific University, can revitalize it.

Go to the top of the once tallest building in Hawaii and see the great views around the harbour. It was a great trip back in time seeing the old wharves and the Tower itself. Gives a great sense of History.

I spend quite a long time up there with my husband, Aloha tower now dominated by the city's skyscrappers so you will not see far away but is a great place to go plane spotting if you are into it as most flights will fly in front of the tower. It is difficult to imagine that once it was the... More

This area has been an awkward place to have a business being that it is in the business district. So sad that the shops didn't work out because the view from the tower is always great for visitors. Although the tower remains accessible, it's pretty lonely here! Two restaurants remain, Gordon Biersh and Hooters. I still think it's worth a... More

This is not a market place anymore. It's being renovated into dorms for a local college. Most of the stores and restaurants have been closed. There's a few restaurant bars that are still open. Not like it used to be. If you're coming from the ships, you would have to go into town or out on Nimitz high way to... More
