HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hotel occupancy improved last week in all four operating counties of Hawaii, and room rates on Oahu and Maui were up significantly from last winter.
 
Oahu hotels were 83% full in the seven days to last Sunday, compared to 73% the previous week and 77% at the same time a year ago, Hospitality Advisors reported Friday. Room rates averaged 8% better than year-before levels.
 
Maui, enjoying the strongest improvement in mainland visitor traffic, had its hotels 72% full, compared to 67% the previous week and 68% a year ago at the same time, with rates up 13% from year-before levels to an average $237 a night.
 
The Big Island, which usually has more unsold inventory than the other islands, was 63% full, up from 54% a week earlier and 48% a year ago, with room rates up 2% from year-before levels to an average $188 a night.
 
Kauai is so far seeing meager recovery. Its hotels ran 63% full, up from 54% the week before and 52% a year ago, with room rates down 1% from year-before levels at an average $195 a night.
 
For the same period, U.S. hotels generally were 50% full, up from 43% the week before, while occupancy was 68% in Los Angeles and 66% in Orlando, Smith Travel Research LLC reported.
