HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii hoteliers experienced growth across all key property performance measures in February.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that the Hawaii Tourism Authority released its Hawaii Hotel Performance Report on Wednesday. The report says statewide occupancy grew nearly 2 percentage points year-over-year to 85.6 percent in February, while the average daily rate climbed 8 percent to $294 a night.

Those measures helped push revenue per available room up 10.5 percent year-over-year to $252 per night.

Jennifer Chun, transportation authority director of tourism research, said all classes of hotel properties on all counties performed well.
