    Report: Hawaii hotel occupancy dropped in June:(


    Hotel occupancy in Hawaii dropped in June -- the first statewide decrease in 18 months, according to a tourism industry consultant company's report released Wednesday.

    Statewide occupancy in June averaged 70.7 percent, a 0.7 percentage point decrease from the same time last year, according to the Hospitality Advisors LLC report.

    However, the hotel industry's average daily rate in June was an average of $185.46, a 9 percent increase. That rate has increased for eight consecutive months but still trails the June 2008 peak of $207.04 by 10.4 percent.

    Oahu had the state's highest occupancy in June at 78.7 percent, which was flat from the prior year. Although domestic arrivals to the island fell by 8.4 percent and Japanese arrivals fell by 15.4 percent, Waikiki occupancy fell by only 0.6 percentage point because of gains in other international arrivals, including Canada and Korea.

    Maui's occupancy averaged 66.7 percent, an increase of 1 percentage point compared with last year. The Big Island's occupancy fell 2.3 percentage points to 54.5 percent. Kauai's occupancy decreased 6.3 percentage points to 63.7 percent.
