Hotels and vacation rentals saw positive gains in October, but they still remain behind 2019 levels

Hotel and vacation rentals saw positive gains for October, but they still lag behind 2019 levels.

The Hawaii Tourism Authority released its monthly hotel and vacation rental performance report for October.

According to the report, hotels and vacation rentals saw lower occupancy rates compared to the same period in 2019 – but received slightly more guests than in September.

In late August, Governor David Ige asked visitors to postpone their travel plans to the state due to the increased delta variable.

The announcement came during a typically slow period of time for the hospitality sector – but industry professionals say the comments had an impact.

The occupancy rate for hotels was 55%, while vacation rentals maintained 59%.

However, there were fewer rental units available last month – because vacation rentals aren’t necessarily available year-round or every day of the month.

Both hotels and rentals posted higher daily rates in October compared to the same time in 2019.

Hotels maintained an average daily rate of $308 – a 20% increase from 2019.

And rents at ADR were $243 – an increase of 27%.

Meanwhile, hotels saw a nearly 25% drop in a key industry metric known as RevPAR – or revenue per available room compared to October 2019.
