Hotels across the Hawaiian Islands generated $5.4 billion in total revenue last year, a new all-time high for the destination and a 5.6% increase over the previous record set in 2013.
Room revenue accounted for nearly 70% of that 2014 total, or $3.65 billion statewide, with money from sources like food and beverage, parking, and retail contributing the rest, according to a report released by Hospitality Advisors and STR Feb. 19.
Average daily rates, or ADR, at hotels across Hawaii climbed 5.5% year over year, to $242.63.
Statewide hotel occupancy, however, was essentially unchanged in 2014, inching up less than a percentage point, to 77%.
Revenue per available room, or RevPAR, climbed 6.2%, to $186.83, across the Islands.
Nationally, Hawaii ranked fifth in terms of occupancy last year but was second only to New York City in ADR and RevPAR.
