It’s the holiday season and we’re already in a frenzy over the state’s tourism industry, but it’s also the perfect time to look at how to gauge how the tourism industry is doing.
The Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTAA) has said that it has recorded a record number of tourist arrivals in 2017 and 2018, with almost 10,000 arrivals for the third straight year.
Its latest annual report shows that more than 5.7 million visitors visited Hawaii in 2018, the second highest total ever, behind only Mexico.
It also reports that the number of hotels booked for 2018 grew by more than 70%, while the number booked for 2019 grew by over 60%.
In addition to the new arrivals, HTAA reported a record 1.7m overnight stays for the state in 2018.
The tourist board has also reported an increase in business travelers.
Its numbers show that, compared with the previous year, hotels booked increased by almost 11%.
Hawaii tourism’s rise in popularityThe Tourism Authority said that the popularity of the island has also increased.
It has said in a release that it expects the tourism boom to continue this year, with an average of more than 3,000 new overnight visitors per day for the first two weeks of January.
The tourism board has said the average price for a hotel in 2018 was $8,300, and that this figure will be higher for 2019.
According to the tourism authority the hotels were booked by people looking to escape the heat and humidity of Hawaii’s tropical island.
The rise in demand for hotel rooms has prompted many hotels to add more rooms, such as the Marriott Hawaii, which announced that it was adding a full-service hotel on Kauai.
The Tourism Board has also announced that the cost of a single room for a single person has increased by $2,400, from $1,100 in 2017 to $2 and $2.50 respectively.
According a recent report by PricewaterhouseCoopers, the average cost of lodging in Hawaii is $2 per night.
The Honolulu Convention and Visitors Bureau (HCCVB) has also published data showing that the average hotel occupancy rate for the Hawaii islands has increased from just under 4% in 2017, to 7.5% in 2018 and 9.6% in 2019.
The HCCVB reported that hotel occupancy in 2017 was lower than that in most other parts of the world, but this figure is expected to improve in 2019 as the economy begins to recover from the aftermath of the massive earthquake and tsunami in March.
A strong economy will also see increased demand for travel, as well as tourism in general, which will bring more tourism businesses to the island.
