Our cruise ship stopped close to here so we jogged over to check out the Tower and the marketplace. The Tower IS cool as you can go up to the 10th floor, for free, and see on the observation deck a 360^ view of Honolulu. The market place itself is not much to see. Spectacular view AT the tower.

So disappointing this attraction is closed Saturdays and Sundays. Its a fairly long bus trip out to the Aloha Tower only to find it closed on a Saturday. Lots of for rent store spaces. Old Spahgetti Factory is moving from Ward Warehouse in the Fall to this almost deserted retail space. Be prepared for lengthy return bus waits.

We visited the market place and tower as it was close to our cruise ship berth. There may have been a thriving shopping centre once upon a time but sadly no longer. Most of the units are closed down and those that remain are affiliated to the university so you can buy books and university branded clothing and some other... More

We made reservations at a waterfront restaurant for lunch. We arrived early and saw some shops so thought we'd check them out. Unfortunately for us, most of them were closed. We did walk around and saw some cool tropical fish near the ships afterwards.

Docked at the Cruise Terminal next to the Aloha Tower, had the Airport in the distance. The airport is also home for military, watching the air traffic was interesting, commercial aircraft interspersed with a few fast military jets. While we were too far to experience the smell of jet fuel, seeing an F-14 Tomcat execute a vertical climb into clear... More

Unfortunately, this cruise port should have much more going on. The tower is free to ride the small elevator up and get a view but, the view is just okay. Much better views from hiking destinations. The shopping plaza is empty. The parts that are filled are filled by a local university so there are classrooms and dorms etc. There... More

The last time that we had been here, we saw that the marketplace aspect of the Aloha Tower was practically non-existent. In some respects, that is sad, as the Aloha Tower is definitely a historic landmark. It is to Honolulu as the Statue of Liberty is to New York City. There is an observation deck on the 10th floor and... More

We visited Aloha Tower in Jan 2017 for the shops and marketplace only to get there and find the place deserted. There were a couple of restaurants, but no shops or marketplace.

I'm not sure why they call this a marketplace. There are a few restaurants, but that's about it. Yelp told me there was a souvenir store here, but we couldn't find it. We were told at the information office that there were no stores here anymore, and for souvenirs, we should go to the Ala Moana Shopping Center. The lady... More

10th Floor Observatory is free. Wonderful 360 degree views of Honolulu, HNL, ships, harbor, etc. plus it is free. Excellent photo op for iconic and historical tower. Took small elevator to top. 3 other people showed up in 35 minutes; one was professor from university eating lunch and catching views between classes. Good news! the observation deck has a restroom,... More
