Hawaii Rebound Continues With Increased Revenue for Hotels

Hawaii has revealed that its hotels reported markedly higher revenue per available room (RevPAR), average daily rate (ADR) and occupancy in December 2021 in comparison to the same month one year before.

In December 2020, Hawaii’s hotel industry experienced a dramatic drop, due to Hawaii’s quarantine restrictions imposed on visitors. But even when compared to 2019 figures, December 2021 had higher ADR and RevPAR statewide.

In December 2021, domestic passengers could bypass the State’s mandatory 10-day self-quarantine if they were fully vaccinated in the United States or with a valid negative test result from a Trusted Testing Partner prior to their departure through the Safe Travels program. Beginning December 6, passengers arriving on direct international flights were subjected to federal U.S. entry requirements which included proof of a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 24 hours of travel or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 in the past 90 days, prior to their flight.

According to the Hawaii Hotel Performance Report published by the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA), statewide RevPAR in December 2021 was $305 (+341.9%), with ADR at $419 (+44.2%) and occupancy of 72.7 percent (+49.0 percentage points) compared to December 2020. Compared with December 2019, RevPAR was 7.6 percent higher, driven by higher ADR (+18.8%) which offset lower occupancy (-7.5 percentage points).

Hawaii’s total statewide hotel revenues for 2021 were $3.7 billion. That was a 156.1% more when compared the the previous year, but still -18.7% when compared to 2019 numbers. Room supply was 19.4 million room nights (+35.5% vs. 2020, -1.8% vs. 2019), and room demand was 11.2 million room nights (+107.9% vs. 2020, -30.0% vs. 2019).

Tables of hotel performance statistics, including data presented in the report, are available here.

  1. Wonder how much money they been making on people who are no shows and couldn’t get money back for nonrefundable rooms or so call flexible rates that come nonrefundable a month before a stay. Omicron hit both vaccinated and unvaccinated people. And Hotels say thank you for your money. We will take your money and then rent your original room to someone else for more money. Even places that you can cancel with are not answering their phones or emails. Hawaiian Airlines…good luck trying to get ahold of them.
