Despite rising prices, travelers are still heading to Hawaii in droves. Perfect weather all year, unsurpassed natural beauty, and world-class beaches draw millions of visitors to Hawaii year after year. 2022 is no exception, and high costs do little to deter travelers from planning a trip to The Aloha State. Hotel rates are rising, and Hawaii tacks another 10.25% (13.25% in Honolulu) to the bill in the form of a transient accommodations tax.
