Waikiki is packed, and Oahu as a whole, still home to half the hotel rooms in the state, has 86% occupancy, which is 11 full percentage points better than last year, based on data from June 20-26.
Maui County hotels are 75% full and Kauai hotels are 76% occupied, better than Orlando and other popular mainland tourist markets, Hospitality Advisors LLC reported Friday.
The Big Island usually has more excess hotel room inventory, but improved to 61% after months with more than half its rooms empty.
Hotel room rates averaged 1% more than year-before levels on Oahu and down slightly elsewhere.
National hotel occupancy for the same period was much lower than these figures, but still improved from year-before levels, Smith Travel Research LLC reported.
