Hawaii's Hotel Tax

September 13, 1987|Bill Peeples

Families planning to visit Hawaii should be alerted to the very high tax imposed on hotel accommodations.

On a recent vacation, we discovered that there is both a 5% hotel tax and a 4% sales tax. For our accommodations, that translated into a $238 surprise at check-out time for an 11-day visit.

Demand full disclosure and actual information from your travel agent before making a booking commitment.
