Hawaii’s hotel occupancy improved slightly in June, but further shocks are expected
Mufi Hannemann, president and CEO of the Hawaii Lodging & Tourism Association, said June’s hotel results provide “false hope” about rapidly changing conditions at Hawaii hotels, which “continue to be bleak.”
Hannemann said Hawaii hotels saw some pickup in June due to the reopening of kamaaina travel. However, based on current indicators, he expects July results might be worse than the industry’s June performance.
“We may go backwards,” he said.
