  • Over 5,000 people visit the observation deck weekly.

  • During WWII the tower was painted in camouflage, which was not sandblasted off until 1947.
  • The tower clock, one of the largest in the United States, occupies the missing floor between the 9th floor office and the 10th floor observation deck.
  • Stands at exactly 184 feet 2 inches with a 40-foot "mast" topped by a time ball, symbolically intended to welcome mariners to Honolulu Harbor.
  • Aloha, structurally, is a slender, square-shaped, masonry building topped by a domed cupola with balconied openings on all four sides.
  • The tower re-opened in April 1999 following two years of extensive renovations.
  • When the clock strikes 4, shopping, food and drink specials signal "Happy Hour at the Tower".
  • The Aloha Tower was the center of controversy in the Territorial Legislature, even during its construction, and a 7-story compromise was suggested to those who wanted no tower at all.
  • Tallest tower in Hawaii for over 30 years until the opening of the Ala Moana Center in 1960.
  • Architecturally, the tower is a mix of Art Deco elements applied to traditional Gothic Revival.
  • The beacon on top can be seen 20 miles out at sea.
  • As a welcome, between each clock face and balcony the word "ALOHA" is etched in large letters.
  • The tower has a 12-foot diameter, 7-ton bronze clock on each of its four sides.
