Very nice shuttle ride but, prices were high, highest anywhere else. Store was really small and hard to move around in, seemed a weird location for tourist trap— high price mall in downtown Honolulu?

No rating to describe this experience. Disgust is the only word to describe how I felt after going to this once fun store. Thinking my family would enjoy this colourful Hawaiian store, we took the "free" shuttle from Waikiki. After being dropped off on a...More

Highest prices I could find. Free shuttle not worth the wait...in my case, woman kept saying 20 minutes, but waited 45. Could have walked faster.

Everyone in Honolulu knew where the iconic Hilo Hattie's was located. It closed recently and relocated to the Ala Moana Mall. Now it's just another 'mall store' in a mall that's getting bigger and bigger by the day. Gone are the trolleys that would pick...More

We always take guests we've brought with us to Hilo Hattie's, as it's kind of a cultural icon. However, the old iconic store on Nimitz Highwoay is now closed, and the store is now located at Ala Moana Mall. It took us over 30 minutes...More
