What I love most about Aloha Tower Marketplace is the ambiance of the place. The historic tower is worth a visit (there are still bullet holes from World War II). The bars and restaurants here are also pretty fun, though many can be pricey. Most of the shops appeal more to tourists, as I've not found any of them particularly interesting.The biggest downside is parking; there isn't a lot of space, so you'll have to pay.
Go up the historic and majestic Aloha Tower and get a 360 degree view of Honolulu and the surrounding neighborhoods, Honolulu Harbor, and the Downtown eclectic mix of old and new buildings. Aloha Tower Marketplace itself is going through some transitions but there's still places to eat like Gordon Biersch. Visit this majestic landmark that opened in 1926. Five stars for being a landmark and treasure; three stars because of there's only a few restaurants - still a not to be missed visit if you're here in Honolulu for the first time.
