Hawaii hotels report February was worst month in a decade

HONOLULU — Hawaii’s hotel industry reports that February was its worst performance month in about a decade.

The Hawaii Tourism Authority report published Monday used analytical data from the hotels.


One hospitality consultant says a drop in occupancy is a carry-over from last year’s volcanic eruption on Hawaii Island and severe weather events.

The report says statewide occupancy fell nearly 3 percentage points to 83.4 percent from February 2018 and revenue decreased nearly 6 percent from a year ago to $360 million.


The report says the average daily room rate dipped more than 1 percent to $290 and revenue per available room declined more than 4 percent to $242.

The last time Hawaii’s hotels reported similar performance levels was August 2009.
