Honolulu (HawaiiNewsNow) - Just out this morning, it's the hotel performance from May, when Japan arrivals were down 17%. The hospitality advisors figures show we took a hit, but the rest of the market was firm.
Statewide, Hawaii hotels ran two-thirds full, about 2% better than May 2010. The improvement was the smallest in a year and a half. Room rates were up about 10% on average.
In May most of the improvement was happening on Oahu and Maui. The Big Island numbers got better because Hualalai Resort reopened, not because other hotels did better.
