    My wife and I were invited on 2/22/20 to listen to jazz music in the Lili’u Room. The atmosphere was all about the music as patrons there were all hyped up and excitedly looking forward to a magical evening. Wine was served (per your ticket) and the managing of getting everyone inside to their seats before showtime was handled well. The room was well acclimated with the AC at a comfortable temperature, the seats were comfortable with little fold out tables to place your drinks on, and the overall employees (some volunteers) that worked that evening was very pleasant. What shocked me was the price of parking. It was a little high at $12 per vehicle. Otherwise, it was a great venue and a perfect place to hold the event. 🎶

    We paid for the delux combo narrated tour and VR through recreation.gov, but chose not to go to the Arizona memorial, USS Missouri, the sub, nor the aviation museum, and spent the better part of the afternoon just doing that. The tour was great- it adds so much more to the static displays of the two sections of the museum. Highly recommend if you’re into history or like museums.

    The VR was like a 70’s cheap movie - it may as well have had flip cards and painted on flames for realism. You can pay for just the tour for $12, or waste 10 minutes of your life and an additional $10 by buying the deluxe version like we did.

    Otherwise, the museum is open, so ambient weather will be what it’s like indoors. If you want to bring a bag in, you’ll need a clear plastic stadium bag to do so, as they don’t allow non-see through bags (not sure why not).

    All in all, the visit was very poignant and informative!

    In the historic area of Honolulu filled with gorgeous government buildings, one standout is the Hawaii State Library. The large verdant lawn and huge old shade trees, make this building welcoming. It's beautiful to look at from far away. With the promise of quiet reading areas, I had been eager to find a time to simply sit and use my local library.

    The library is kept clean, organized, and brightly lit. There are indoor and outdoor seating areas, all shielded from the sun and rain. Maps abound to help point out exactly what you're looking for. I love the old metal stacks and historic interior of the building.

    Unfortunately this place has some serious drawbacks caused not by the library itself, but by the social situation that's a common fixture of city - homelessness. I finally had that opportunity to visit the building for a few hours due to flexible hours around the holidays. I headed for the restrooms first thing and realized what issues they have. It was worse than a gas station restroom with angry signs everywhere about not shaving, showering, or changing in the restrooms. That didn't stop people from doing so inside. I pity the employees and custodians of the building; this is more of a daily homeless shelter than a place for public use.

    I found a nice table in the courtyard and sat for a while. There was a constant and consistent parade of homeless men with large suitcases going in and out to use the restrooms. It's truly unbelievable how bad it is here. Electrical outlets were all claimed, disgusting behavior was everywhere. Maybe tighter rules about 'no luggage or large bags' would stop some of this abuse? I'm sure there are people asking these questions.

    The library offers many other services including internet, passport, and lending items. Hours narrow and do not cater to people who work 9-5. I wish I had more time to spend here, but honestly don't know if I would until things improve. If you're a tourist visiting, it's worth your time to walk around the building.

    Tucked away at the end of the Ali Wai canal, this wonderful little library is a slice of the past. The architecture is classic mid-century. A perfect spot to stop in and relax if you're walking in the area. Lots of local events are advertised on the bulletin boards, too.

    "Visitor Center" would be a strong word to describe. This is basically a stand with a gift shop. The audio tour that I rented was worthwhile. In all fairness, you only have a 2 hour window to experience Diamond Head and it is best spent on the hike up to the top of the crater rather than hanging around a visitor center even if it was more elaborate.

    We enjoy our visits to Chinatown because there are Asian food ingredients we like, a good selection of fresh fish and meats and excellent fresh fruit and vegetables. Sadly in spite of numerous clean up efforts and some new food outlets a few blocks away the homeless problem appears to have got worse. Our bus driver was abused on the way there by a homeless person - he handled it with extreme tolerance. We walked from the centre of Honolulu and there were homeless sleeping/passed out along the way which is quite disconcerting. We now understand why our hotel security guard warned us about visiting.

    My first trip to Hawaii and I forgot to order leis. I found leisifhawaii while on my flight. They completed my order, created my personalized greeting sign and met me in baggage claim when my flight arrived . My friends husband is a Veteran and stated when he got off the ✈️ he had not had a lei greeting since 1976. Such a surprise for them .

    Totally baffling Mask policy

    If you want a real head scratcher visit this lounge. You can walk in without a mask, you can get your own drinks without a mask, you can communicate with the entire staff without a mask (all under 6’) BUT if you request food at the food counter (which is not self serve) you have to wear a mask that was NOT required if you stand there and talk to the service staff. Once they push your food to you, over a 3 foot distance, you can take your mask off.

    This didn’t feel premium at all. It was very crammed - the receptionist told you where to sit (which is fine to maximise table space, but felt a little forced). The food was awful there was turkey or tuna sandwiches only. I asked about vegetarian food and they replied that their food comes from planes. It’s not vegetarian. Bizarrely, even the minestrone soup had beef in it

    Go here of you have no other choice.
