Don't bother with this one. The marketplace is gone - the site has been sold and is being converted to residences from what we heard on the site. The tower is still accessible, but (at 1:45pm) we actually had to wake up the attendant to open the elevator doors - a good gauge of the lack of visitors... The tower... More

The Aloha Tower used to be a landmark for travelers to Oahu. Now it is... old glory. The marketplace was closed for renovation when we visited. Hopefully the renovation can vibe the place back up again. We would give it the benefit of the doubt and revisit the Aloha Tower Marketplace on a return trip to Oahu. Hopefully the Aloha... More

Although there was lots of construction going on around the Tower and it could use some sprucing up as well, there are wonderful views from the top of the tower and for once, it was free!!!

We went here in 1995 and it was a great place to shop, however it is presently closed for renovation. Luckily we didn't make a special trip out here, hope it gets finished soon..

I remember when the Aloha Tower Marketplace was a primary stop on every visitors list, but those days have past. Although it still has a small collection of neat shops and restaurants there are so many high end shops in nearby Ala Moana Center, Wards Center and downtown Honolulu that the Marketplace is now an afterthought or not thought about...

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
