Once Aloha Tower was the highest building in Hawai'i. Those times are long gone but the place is still worth visiting. Take the elevator to the 10th floor (we had some problems... read more

We have enjoyed the Aloha Tower on previous visits. It was full of shops, restaurants and activities. We were shocked to find it fenced off and virtually abandoned this trip. Apparently the sole remaining business is a Hooters Restaurant. We were told that there are plans to redevelop the Aloha Tower, but for now itis rather depressing.

Once Aloha Tower was the highest building in Hawai'i. Those times are long gone but the place is still worth visiting. Take the elevator to the 10th floor (we had some problems turning on the elevator...) and admire the views from all the four sides. You can see Waikiki, CBD and the harbour. Unfortunately, the mountains are quite well obscured... More

Like others I found that the parking lot is run by the worst cretins in Ohau. We were taking the star of Honolulu and my wife is disabled. Like many disabled people she is a bit slow. The attendant could hardly restrain the glee with with which she charged the rate of $6 an hour for ($3 per half hour... More

Aloha Tower Marketplace could have been a gem due to its lovely location. However, poor management has run it to the ground and most of the shops and restaurants are now closed. The Aloha Tower itself is worth a visit. You can take the elevator to the observation deck at the top and it is free of charge. The problem... More

There is no fee to ride the elevator to the top of the Aloha Tower and the view is good. Nothing spectacular but definitely a good starting point for a sight-seeing tour of the city center. Do not spend more than 15-20 minutes. That is more than enough time to go up the tower, look around and then go down... More

The tower is a free attraction. The elevator takes you up and then you have 4 balconies to visit, one for each direction. As you are on the 10th floor you are above many of the low buildings, yet many skyscrapers rise high above you. A cruiseship might block a lot of the view towards Pearl Harbour and the airport.......

This is a free attraction located in the Honolulu Harbor. Take the elevator to the top floor observation decks to get a fantastic panoramic view of Honolulu, Diamond Head, Waikiki, etc. Well worth the time. We took the Waikiki Trolley Red Line to get there from our resort in Waikiki

Don't forget to bring your camera here. Lots of chances for some really great waterfront pictures. Boats, navy ships and people watching. Great restaurants and bars here as well. Some shopping and but mostly just a great place to meet up with friends and watch the world go by in paradise.

Do not park in the paid lot across the street from Aloha Tower, Operated by Standard Parking, across the street from Aloha Tower. We parked here and all our valuables were stolen. After filing a police report and competing a Customer Incident report with the parking attendant, they added 'salt in the wound' by charging us for parking. No compassion... More

It is reasonable priced and... More
