Seven out of every ten hotel rooms in Hawaii were filled this past June. This number according to Hospitality Advisors and Smith Travel Research. While seven out of ten isn’t bad, that number was still down 0.7% from the same time last year. That resulted in a 2.9% decline in visitors.
While hotel occupancy was down, revenue per available room was up by 7.9% to $131.12. The average room rate was $185.46, which was up by 9% from last year.
Hotel rooms are still not full, but seven out of ten is pretty good, especially if you consider the current economy.
