A Modern Alternative to the Traditional Santa Cruz Hotel

thehotelparadoxresponsiveph

Look beyond the Surf City image of Santa Cruz and you find things hidden in plain sight: Rugged mountains, majestic redwoods and vibrant communities.

This is where Hotel Paradox lives. From the architectural gridded façade to a sleek design and urban forest aesthetic, we challenge you with bold contradictions. Our engaging staff invites you to enjoy a curated experience where the ambiance is contemporary, inviting and a little bit mysterious. Around every corner, they stir your sense of adventure and make you question what is obvious. The outdoor pool and bar both soothes and stimulates your senses. Guest rooms are modern, sophisticated and alive with local style.

Hotel Paradox… Expect the Unexpected.

We are excited to announce that we are now part of the Autograph Collection by Marriott!
