One of the easiest ways to tell how the Hawaii travel market is doing as a whole is looking at the hotel occupancy rate on all the islands. This past week the numbers for the last quarter came in and they were pretty good. The hotel occupancy rate for Hawaii was 86% full which is pretty strong numbers. The average room rate was around $300. If you look at the occupancy rate and also look at the average cost per night you can see the Hawaii travel market ended the year strong. In previous years the hotel occupancy would be high but the average night cost would be low. With the price being high and the occupancy rate also being high it shows that the Hawaii travel industry is still going strong. It should be interesting to see how we do in 2012 but many are expecting strong numbers once again as the international travel to Hawaii continues to increase with the increase of flights coming to Hawaii. If you are looking to travel to Hawaii anytime soon I recommend checking for hotel rates as soon as possible because the closer to the date of travel the higher the rates will be.
