Waikiki, which has about half the state's hotel rooms, was packed: Oahu occupancy rose two points from the previous week to 80%, nine points above the same time last year, with average room rates up 8% from back then, Hospitality Advisors LLC reported Friday.
Maui County hotels were 71% full, 11 points better than the previous week and 14 points better than the same week in 2009, despite 3% higher average room rates.
Big Island hotels went from 54% to 62% last week, also 14 points better than year-before levels, but with average room rates down 4% from last year at the same time.
Kauai hotels were 57% full, four points better than the week before and 10 points better than the same week in 2009, with average room rates down 1% from last year. It is unusual for Kauai to have a lower occupancy rate than the Big Island, which usually has the largest percentage of unsold inventory across the islands.
