HAGATNA, Guam (Pacific Daily News, Dec. 1) – Guam Visitors Bureau numbers show the island's annual visitor tally hit a million through October, when last year it took a month longer to reach the milestone.

The hotel occupancy report prompted a press release from Governor Felix P. Camacho, who stated yesterday "this has been a tremendous year for tourism and the growth we've seen since the bottom of the economy in 2002."

Although there are more than 14,000 fewer room nights available for sale, more than 100,000 more room nights were sold, for a year-to-date increase of 8 percent, according to the governor's press release.

October's average hotel occupancy rate was 64 percent, but industry officials have said a healthier rate would be around 70 percent.
