The hotel industry was rocked last year by the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit the Japan’s northeast.
Auckland’s economy was hit hard and the worst was in the hospitality sector where 3,000 were temporarily displaced during the devastating tsunami.
Since then, the hotel industry has come back, in part thanks to the booming tourism market.
The latest KPMG figures show hotel occupancy rates in New Zealand rose 20 per cent from 2010 to 2012.

The average room price was about $2,095 last year while last year was the second lowest in recent years at $1,098.
KPMG Australia managing director Simon Smith said occupancy rates in Australia had improved since 2010 with many hotels closing, but there was concern about how many new hotel developments were getting built.
“Some of the growth seems to come from developments that are getting built and some of these new developments appear to have been funded through government funds or the property tax allowance,” Smith said.
KPMG’s latest data also shows Auckland’s rate of hotel occupancy fell slightly to 41 per cent during the year, compared to 45 per cent a year earlier.
The average room in Australia dropped 4.9 per cent to $7,897 last year, while the national average was $12,074.
