Hotel Paradox, Autograph Collection is close to all of the Santa Cruz action. Less than a mile from Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, this property's central location makes it a breeze to get around. It is an easy walk to all of the shops on Pacific Avenue.

The hotel aims to bring the outside in to the hotel with a giant eucalyptus tree front desk and white squirrels inhabiting the property. The hotel blends in with the natural Santa Cruz landscape, including the redwoods, forest and the mountains. Guest rooms feature natural forest elements such as stump tables, river rock shower floors and rainfall shower heads. Continental breakfast is available each morning for $12. Wi-Fi is complimentary on property.

On a hot day after hitting the Boardwalk, take a dip in the pool or grab a drink at the outdoor bar. It tends to cool down a bit at night and guests can sit back and relax by the fire pits to keep warm. For dinner, the on-site Soliare Restaurant serves farm-to-table cuisine with local wines and beers.
