Matt Anderson's Take
The Waikiki Shopping Plaza is a fairly large shopping mall and located right on Kalakaua Avenue, across the street from Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center.

There is a Tanaka of Tokyo restaurant here but otherwise it's mostly shops and some commercial offices on the higher floors. Parking is available here and also at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center across the street.

There are some big name stores in here like Armani Exchange, Sephora, and Disney Vacation Club (which has a cool model of the Aulani A Disney Resort And Spa property in Ko'Olina, see Ko Olina Resort).

I've been here many times and this mall always feels a bit empty inside in terms of shoppers (or lack of) but they've recently undergone some renovations so I hope that will help bring in more people here. It's not just me with that opinion, talk with some of the employees in the various shops here and many will have the same concern.

I do like that their newest wing (30,000 square feet of space) is LEED certified, it's the only building in Waikiki that currently is as of the time of this review.

If you are in the area it's worth stopping in to check it out, there are dozens of stores in here, but it doesn't feel like a destination to me.

This plaza is boring not much in it at all I think they need to upgrade and put some more upbeat stores in there. Waikiki is full of tourists so they want to shop all that space is a waste. Put something in there and do it up. Just in my opinion it's Waikiki.
