Hawaii hotels report February was worst month in a decade

HONOLULU — Hawaii’s hotel industry has reported February was its worst performance month in about a decade.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Tuesday that the Hawaii Tourism Authority report published the previous day used analytical data from the hotels.

One hospitality consultant says a drop in occupancy is a carry-over from last year’s volcanic eruption on Hawaii island and severe weather events.

The report says statewide occupancy fell nearly three percentage points to 83.4 percent from February 2018 and revenue decreased nearly six percent from a year ago to $360 million.

The report says the average daily room rate dipped more than 1 percent to $290 and revenue per available room declined more than 4 percent to $242.

The newspaper reports the last time Hawaii’s hotels reported similar performance levels was August 2009.

    You rip people off, they will avoid you. Here is hoping the cockroaching hotel CEO’s go broke from AirBnB, and Hawaiian Airlines CEO gets bled dry from Southwest.
