Lot of renovations going on when we were there. One restaurant open, fair, but staff had no Aloha Spirit.

This tower has been around for a long time. A lot of people see it, but few stop to go up in it. It is a nice view from the top (10th floor). Your bags will be searched before going up. We came in the evening and got to watch a small show for the people going on the dinner... More

We thought this would be a high place where you could look over the city...I can imagine it used to be that...in the 50's or so. You walk through a sort of abandoned marketplace that hasn't been updated for at least 25 years. You take an elevator (that looks and feels like it was put there right after the second... More

The market place has just been taken over by Hawaii Pacific University so very few shops available. The tower is the highlight of my oahu trip. Great view and lots of history of the site. Also very few people is always a bonus for my travel plans. Can be from a 15 min stop to a couple of hours if... More

Aloha Tower is one of Honolulu's landmarks. The area around the tower has been made into a place where you can do some shopping and eat, but it's not very busy. I wouldn't spend too much time here, but it's on the water and you can get some nice pictures from the top of the tower.

There are two restaurants at Aloha Tower, Gordon Biersch and Hooters. It used to have a lot of businesses for tourists about 15 years ago... It's a nice place, but parking is expensive and limited and there are only the two eating places there at the moment. It's not as though there is a sandy area, or a romantic place... More

Apparently the Aloha Tower is the most recognizable building in Hawai'i. It once was the tallest building in Hawai'i. It use to be a bustling area, but the action has now moved in another direction. When I went by it just looked sad & depressed. Hear they opened up a Hooters, if that "floats your boat." On the pier just... More

We caught a bus here for $2.50. The view from the top is lovely and worth a pop in. Shame there is no market place here now as the university bought the land, but still a nice view and building. It is a bit out of the way, we could see if but had to try and get a bus... More

Years ago this was a very busy and popular shopping area. Over the years as the business slumped the shops moved out and closed. I understand that the University of Pacific recently took it over and put dorms in the upper level. The plan is to attempt to bring shops and restaurants back into the lower area. I was there...
