Another year-over-year increase in average daily rates (ADR) helped Hawaii hotels generate a new first-quarter total revenue record of $1.44 billion.

For the three-month period ending March 31, Hawaii ADRs climbed 6.5% to a statewide average of $250.36, according to a recent survey by Hospitality Advisors and STR.

First-quarter occupancy, however, slipped across the Aloha State, dipping just over 1 percentage point, to 80.8%.

Hawaii finished first in the nation for ADR and revenue per available room ($202.29) in the first quarter of 2014, but the destination came in second to Miami-Hialeah, Florida’s 84.6% occupancy rate.
