  Craig T. Kojima / ckojima@staradvertiser.com @Caption1:Waikiki posted the highest hotel occupancy rate in the state in September -- 85.9 percent -- thanks to a  14.1 percent increase in visitors from overseas, especially Japan.

Honolulu is the most expensive destination in the U.S. for the upcoming Presidents’ Day weekend, according to CheapHotels.org. Maui is the fourth-most expensive and Hawaii island is ranked at No. 10.

The travel website based its rankings on the cost of hotel rates for the period from Friday, Feb. 15 through Monday, Feb. 18.

CheapHotels.org found that travelers will have to spend $294 in Honolulu; $289 in Fort Myers Beach, Fla.; $287 in Key West, Fla.; $279 on Maui; $275 in Marathon, Fla.; and in Colorado, $272 in Aspen, $250 in Vail, and $245 in Breckenridge; $244 in Islamorada, Fla.; or $239 on Hawaii island.

Hawaii’s tourism industry has definite holidays it depends upon for boosts in visitor arrivals and spending, and Presidents’ Day weekend is not among them.

Full rankings can be found on the Cheap Hotels website.
