The Aloha Tower is a historical area where it welcomed the many ships that arrived on Oahu during the early 20th century. It is very quiet here nowadays and is not that much for visitors to do as many of the adjoining shops in the marketplace were left vacant. Visitors can take the elevator up to the top level for...

In Waikiki, it is hard to find the parking, but here, it was OK to park without any delay.The market is almost disappeared and becam university campus. However, there were some restaurants where I really enjoyed sparetime to have slow lunch with my friends. Also I went up aloha tower to look around surroundings. Quite good, no fee.

The historic tower was built near the harbor which used to welcome those visitors coming to Hawaii. The tower looks great but there isn't any other attracted sightseeing spot near around, so there's less and less tourists come here to visit. You can take the elevator to get up the top of the tower to see the beautiful harbor view... More

I had to be in that area and ended up parking for a little less than 4 hours. Sign indicated $3 per hour but the machine charged me $24 ($6 per hour). There was nothing I could do but pay because otherwise the gate will not open. I realize they are not doing great business in the immediate area, but... More

Nice to visit the historical tower, iconic. The marketplace is gone except for a couple of restaurants. Too bad cause it is a nice location if you are downtown.

No longer a shopping center. But beautiful open air mall, and iconic tower. Places to sit and and enjoy shade and breeze. Statues of native Hawaiian hula girls and women. Wonder full restaurant at end with view of water and boats. Near by are dinner cruise boats and two museum boats, and if you look into water there is a... More

Was the tallest building in Honolulu and a landmark a long time ago. Now is a dwarf compared to the skyscrapers. You can go up in the elevator in tower and look out from observation platform on all 4 sides. Not much else to do here. Marketplace seems to be more of a college campus with bookstore, convenience store and... More

Married on Oahu 20 years ago - married on a ship and the Aloha Tower is in the background of our wedding photos, so wanted to see it again. Was very surprised when I was informed on the Tripadvisor forum that there is no marketplace! Was a great marketplace 20 years ago with lots of shops, just wonderful.....but no more... More

We walked from Iolani Palace to the Aloha Tower thinking that there would be a market, but no, the information we had was outdated so don't waste time coming here. There are only a couple of restaurants and I believe it now houses a university campus.

I came here 15 years ago and this shopping center was awesome. Went today and it's practically empty! Top floors completely closed no shops. Ate at the worst Hooters I've ever been to there. Don't waste your time.
