Hotel Paradox, Autograph Collection®


About Us

Expect the unexpected at Hotel Paradox, Autograph Collection.  Walkable to downtown Santa Cruz and sandy beaches on Monterey Bay, yet surrounded by rugged mountains and majestic redwoods, this contemporary vintage hotel strikes a bold blend of pleasing contradictions with a quintessential Santa Cruz County vibe. A 200-year old eucalyptus tree serves as the guest reception desk, leading to welcoming lobby lounge (with free WiFi) and Solaire Restaurant + Bar, offering California cuisine with an emphasis on shareable plates and local/seasonal ingredients, accentuated by exotic global flavors and fusions. Adored by locals and hotel guests alike, the vibrant pool scene features poolside cabanas, a fire pit, rotating games (ping pong, giant Jenga, and more) and a center stage to showcase an array of musical and performing artists.  Visit the hotel website for pool day passes, memberships and information about upcoming special events and activities. Hotel Paradox also caters to corporate and social groups, with indoor and outdoor event space for up to 300 guests, including full-service catering and onsite experts in audio/visual and event planning. Hotel Paradox is an Autograph Collection hotel and a proud participant in the Marriott Bonvoy program.
