A Modern Alternative to the Traditional Santa Cruz Hotel

Look beyond the Surf City image of Santa Cruz and 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 interior design and urban forest aesthetic, this Autograph Collection Hotel will 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, we 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, natural and alive with local style.

Like no other spot in Santa Cruz, the pool deck features fire pits, poolside service & private cabanas. This one of a kind refuge pairs the bold with the natural & the surprising with the comfortable.
