Hotel Paradox...Expect the Unexpected

If you look beyond the surfer image of Santa Cruz, you’ll find things hidden in plain sight: Rugged mountains, majestic redwoods and a vibrant community. From the architectural gridded façade, to the sleek design and urban forest aesthetic, we challenge you with bold contradiction. The element of surprise begins in the lobby with an enormous eucalyptus tree posing as the front desk. Whatever brings you to the original “Surf City”, you will enjoy a curated experience where the ambiance is contemporary, inviting and a little bit mysterious. Around every corner, we will stir your sense of adventure and make you question what is obvious. Whether you decide to relax by our outdoor pool, explore the iconic Santa Cruz boardwalk on one of our cruisers or take a short drive to the majestic redwoods; we are here to point you in whichever direction you choose and will offer you an experience exactly like nothing else.
