This article is a snapshot of the year 2021, and based on that information, it showcases some key statistics about hotels in Hawai. The hotel industry has seen major changes since the pandemic hit in 2019.
The “tourism hawaii 2021” is a post that has been published on the website tourismhawaii.com by the Hawaii Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism. The article discusses how December 2021 hotel stats are higher than pre-Pandemic times.
In compared to the same month the previous year, the state of Hawaii recently announced that its hotels recorded much greater revenue per available room (RevPAR), average daily rate (ADR), and occupancy in December 2021. Due to Hawaii’s quarantine limitations put on out-of-state guests, the islands’ hotel business saw a sharp reduction in these numbers in December 2020. In comparison to December 2019, December 2021 had greater ADR and RevPAR statewide, albeit decreased occupancy.
According to the Hawaii Tourism Authority’s (HTA) ‘Hawaii Hotel Performance Report,’ statewide RevPAR in December 2021 was $305, up 342 percent over the same month the previous year; ADR was $419, up 44 percent; and occupancy was 73 percent, up 49 percentage points. In December 2019, on the other hand, RevPAR was over 8% higher, due to a 19% increase in ADR, which helped to offset lower occupancy levels, which were down seven-and-a-half percentage points.
What’s Hot Right Now
“Hawaii’s hotels maintained their upward momentum in December, with excellent RevPAR and ADR helping to close the year on a positive note and sustain employment throughout the islands,” HTA president and CEO John De Fries said in a statement. “Despite worldwide anxiety over the Omicron variant’s influence on travel, domestic leisure market demand remained high during the holidays.” Business, group, and foreign travel, on the other hand, continue to lag below pre-pandemic levels.”
According to today’s announcement, the report’s conclusions are based on data produced by STR, which “conducts the biggest and most thorough study of hotel establishments in the Hawaiian Islands.”
The firm polled more than 85 percent of the Aloha State’s hotel establishments with 20 or more rooms, resulting in 148 properties with 46,751 rooms.
Revenues from hotel rooms in the state were $518 million in December 2021, up 376 percent from 2020 and about 10% more than in 2019. Room demand was 1.2 million room nights, a 230 percent increase over 2020 but a nearly eight percent drop from 2019. The number of hotel nights available was 1.7 million, increasing almost 8% from 2020 and nearly 2% from 2019.

When compared to other major U.S. markets, the Hawaiian Islands had the highest RevPar in 2021, at $189, up 89 percent from the previous year; Miami came in second at $149, up 74 percent; and New York City came in third at $126, up 76 percent. In terms of ADR, Hawaii placed top in the United States at $329 (up 23%), followed by Miami at $224 (up 21%), and New York City at $210 (up 38%).
