Hilo Hattie's has a free shuttle that will pick you up around the city and take you to Hilo Hattie's. You can get on where you want and get off where you want. only thing is that you are dropped off at the store and can leave as soon as the next shuttle arrives. We love3d shopping at the store and found lots of gifts and items to buy. This is a place you need to plan on going when you get to the island.

Everyone in Honolulu knew where the iconic Hilo Hattie's was located. It closed recently and relocated to the Ala Moana Mall. Now it's just another 'mall store' in a mall that's getting bigger and bigger by the day. Gone are the trolleys that would pick up and drop off at or near the major hotels that made visiting the store an experience. I was very saddened to see this change. Same stuff, but now just another Hawaiian merchandise store.

We always take guests we've brought with us to Hilo Hattie's, as it's kind of a cultural icon. However, the old iconic store on Nimitz Highwoay is now closed, and the store is now located at Ala Moana Mall. It took us over 30 minutes to find a parking place in the mall lot, then another 20 minutes to walk to the store. You absolutely DO NOT need to go to a mall when all you want is a visit to the store. Do yourself a favor and just pass on the new store, unless you have another need to go to the mall, or are staying at one of the downtown hotels that have a shuttle to the mall. Look for the stores on the other main islands, especially Hilo on the Big Island.

If you find yourself in Oahu, you owe it to yourself to check out Hilo Hattie's! While some might call it "kitschy," the fact of the matter is that this is a one stop shopping place for all your souvenirs! Clothing, trinkets, food, housewares...you name it, they have it!

We used to like going to Hilo Hatties for fun, The main store in Honolulu is closed (which our guide book didn't know). There is a very small store in Ala Moana Shopping Center which isn't worth going to. The stores on the other islands are still nice - but skip it on Oahu.
