Once Aloha Tower was the tallest building on Honolulu and probably had a fantastic view of the more populated valleys of the Koolau mountain range. I missed my chance as now there is a wall of concrete, glass and steel and still more of them planned in the east of the tower. BUT, the view is still awesome and worth... More

Free entrance. You walk under the building and let the security person check your belongings. Then you can take the elevator to the level 10. The view is so nice. Must come to visit here.

Everything in Hawaii was exceptional and this was no different! The shops are unique and the eating places were the same. Enjoyed visiting and hope to return one day.

If you're in the Downtown/Chinatown area it's worth a short detour walk here (around 10 minute walk) to go up in the (old!) elevator to the top of the tower, where there are some great 360 degree views from 4 separate balconies. Good view of planes landing at the airport in the distance.

The aloha Tower is very old but well maintained with pretty views from the top. It has balcony overlooks to see the harbor & the city.

The bus and Waikiki trolleys stop at the marketplace, but there is very little to see here , when we visited midweek,of the handful of shops in the vicinity, nothing was open. However, going up the Aloha tower was free and you are able to get some really nice views of the airport, ocean and Honolulu, certainly worth a 30... More

While visiting Honolulu on a cruise, we were told about this market area close to the ship. However, when we walked there it was not a market, it was a university campus. We did however visit the actual Aloha Tower and took the elevator up to the top where you get a good view out over the harbour. This was... More

Built in 1928 the Aloha Tower is probably the most iconic location in the city. There is a 10th floor observation deck that offers spectacular views of the city. It's open every day from 9:30 am to 5 pm

Visited Aloha tower and area is undergoing an revitalization. A few restaurants have taken up residence with more shops to come, I hope. Mostly empty refurbished store fronts. A college takes up a lot of space also. Ride to the top of the tower was nice with a good view.
