HONOLULU -- Hawaii hotel performance improved in September, driven
primarily by a rise in daily room rates on Kauai, according to
Hospitality Advisors and Smith Travel Research.
On Kauai, average daily rates rose from $137.34 last September
to $150.01 this year.
Oahu also improved. Room rates there reached $109.49 compared
with $107.89 a year ago.
Statewide, the average daily room rate increased by 1% to
$130.40 for the month, marking the first gain in room rates since
Kauai also led the market in occupancy, with 73.8% in September,
a gain of 10.8% compared with the previous-year level.
