A report in the Garden Island newspaper today gave new meaning to the word "crater". One of the headlines reads "Hotel occupancy rates crater in Hawai'i".
I track multiple Hawaii statistics and one of these is the hotel occupancy rate. This gives a little insight into our biggest industry which is tourism. Adding the latest data point for Mauai (Kauai figures were not immediately available), the chart now looks like the figure below. September statewide occupancy is reported at 63.2% compared to 74.2% a year ago.
As I've said many times, now is the time for visitors to come to Hawaii because the crowds are gone, the weather is almost perfect, and we need you!
