Staying on Waikiki Beach meant that the shopping was targeted to tourists, or very high-end (Channel, Gucci, and Prada), and the prices similar. Did I get what I was looking for at the price I was willing to pay? Sure, but for the effort, I would have spent more time and similar money in Waikiki.
Leaving the shopping center on the bus was also confusing, as the number I was on from Iolani Palace or the numbers that I know drop off next to my hotel did not pick up at the center as far as I could tell - the way directions are given on the island make sense, but only if you know where you are coming from and where you are. So I took a different number (no. 8) and had to walk a couple blocks back to the hotel. (There was no schedule or map, so I didn't know just how close the bus would eventually go - I got out where I recognized the location.) During my stay, I had been walking between my hotel, the convention center, the beach, and the streets in between. Unfortunately, I did not go more inland, so I would not recognize the buildings or street names/numbers. Not all the bus drivers were nice and helpful (some are though), so use caution or find a schedule.

This shopping mall is a shopping mall. There are not a lot of local Hawaiian crafts sold there, though there is a small Hilo Hattie's onsite and a couple of minor stores. The best part of the mall is in its food court. It is absolutely huge, with every kind of food imaginable. You can even snuggle up to a bar if you so incline. When you are done, just take the shopping shuttle back to Waikiki and pat yourself on the back for convenience's sake.
