October 2023 Hawai‘i Hotel Performance Report: RevPAR was 27.3 percent higher compared with October 2019

Hawaiʻi

Statewide Hawai‘i hotel room revenues totaled $447.8 million (+5.7% vs. 2022, +32.7% vs. 2019) in October 2023. Room demand was 1.3 million room nights (+3.6% vs. 2022, -2.4% vs. 2019) and room supply was 1.7 million room nights (+0.4% vs. 2022, +4.2% vs. 2019).

Hawai‘i hotels statewide reported higher revenue per available room (RevPAR), average daily rate (ADR), and occupancy in October 2023 compared to October 2022. When compared to pre-pandemic October 2019, statewide ADR and RevPAR were higher in October 2023 but occupancy was lower.

According to the Hawai‘i Hotel Performance Report published by the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority (HTA), statewide RevPAR in October 2023 was $258 (+5.2%), with ADR at $347 (+2.0%) and an occupancy of 74.5 percent (+2.3 percentage points) compared to October 2022. Compared with October 2019, RevPAR was 27.3 percent higher, driven by higher ADR (+35.9%) which offset lower occupancy (-5.0 percentage points).

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. For October 2023, the survey included 156 properties representing 47,786 rooms, or 85.5 percent of all lodging properties with 20 rooms or more in the Hawaiian Islands, including those offering full service, limited service, and condominium hotels. Vacation rental and timeshare properties were not included in this survey.

Luxury Class properties earned RevPAR of $404 (-1.3% vs. 2022, +14.8% vs. 2019), with ADR at $688 (-7.5% vs. 2022, +44.7% vs. 2019) and occupancy of 58.6 percent (+3.7 percentage points vs. 2022, -15.3 percentage points vs. 2019). Midscale & Economy Class properties earned RevPAR of $174 (+4.8% vs. 2022, +33.5% vs. 2019) with ADR at $241 (+8.3% vs. 2022, +49.8% vs. 2019) and occupancy of 72.3 percent (-2.5 percentage points vs. 2022, -8.8 percentage points vs. 2019).

Maui County hotels earned RevPAR of $336 (-2.5% vs. 2022, +30.5% vs. 2019), with ADR at $506 (-3.2% vs. 2022, +49.9% vs. 2019) and occupancy of 66.5 percent (+0.5 percentage points vs. 2022, -9.9 percentage points vs. 2019).

As a result, hotels in the Lahaina/Kāʻanapali/Kahana region were occupied by a mix of displaced Lahaina residents impacted by the fires, relief workers, and visitors. The Lahaina/Kā‘anapali/Kapalua region had RevPAR of $303 (-7.4% vs. 2022, +41.4% vs. 2019), ADR at $458 (-2.1% vs. 2022, +58.3% vs. 2019) and occupancy of 66.1 percent (-3.8 percentage points vs. 2022, -7.9 percentage points vs. 2019).
