Hawaii hotels report dramatic declines in revenues and occupancy

In April 2020, Hawaii hotels statewide reported dramatic declines in revenue per available room (RevPAR), average daily rate (ADR), and occupancy compared to April 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the Hawaii Hotel Performance Report published by the Hawaii Tourism Authority’s (HTA) Tourism Research Division, statewide RevPAR decreased to $12 (-94.5%), ADR fell to $131 (-51.8%), and occupancy declined to 8.9 percent (-69.0 percentage points) (Figure 1) in April.

The report’s findings utilized data compiled by STR, Inc., which conducts the largest and most comprehensive survey of hotel properties in the Hawaiian Islands.

In April, Hawaii hotel room revenues statewide fell by 97.0 percent to $10.4 million. Room supply was 45.4 percent lower year-over-year (887,200 room nights) and room demand dwindled to 79,100 room nights (-93.7%) (Figure 2). Many properties closed or reduced operations in April.

The quarantine order was expanded on April 1 to include inter-island travelers.
