Kaua‘i hotels were by far the fullest across the state last week at nearly 78 percent.
That’s 1.4 points better than last year, with average room rates up 13.2 percent to $178.03 a night.
“We see for 2004 that, for the hotels in the Po‘ipu area, we’re running about 10 to 15 percent higher than 2003,” said Margy Parker, executive director of the Poipu Beach Resort Association.
Kaua‘i’s hotels charged about fifty dollars a night more than hotels in Waikiki.
But Oahu and the Big Island showed the biggest improvement over last year.
For the period May 23 through 29, the statewide rate was 76 percent, fully 24.4 points better than last year.
Average room rates across the state were 10.3 percent higher than the nearest comparable week in late May 2003, Hospitality Advisors LLC reported.
