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walked from Iolani Palace to the Aloha Tower thinking that there would be a market, but no, the information we had was outdated so don't waste time coming here.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.

Aloha tower is nice when your on a cruise and leaving the port it's quiet lovely. However, the port is not that spectacular other than visiting local tour attraction

What needs to be said. Nothing there! Hooters, Gordon Birsch, a book store specific to the facility that took over the place.

We were on a cruise so we went by for a drink. Beautiful view of our cruise ship in port. Agree it could be so much more

We went to this tower expecting to go up and see wonderful views of Honolulu. Instead all we saw were shipyards. Really disappointing.

Not only is this a good getaway for shopping and eating, it is historic too! There are several specialty shops and souvenir places as well as restaurants like Jimmy Buffet's and Gordon Biersch. Parking is limited and at a price but there are also public transportation drop off/pick up points at or near the area if you are coming from... More
