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

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
