Hotel Paradox embodies the natural beauty of Santa Cruz, featuring elements of the area that are traditionally thought of as secondary to the beach: the forest, the mountains, the redwoods, and the arts. We invite guests to engage their sense of discovery, escape the ordinary, and embrace adventure. The element of surprise begins in the lobby with an enormous eucalyptus tree serving as a front desk, and white squirrels showing up in unexpected places. The nature-themed Solaire Restaurant + Bar features local and sustainable options, set in an atmosphere that brings the outside in, with a multi-angled ceiling adorned with back-lit trees and a blue sky. Guest room décor features natural forest elements, including wooden stump tables, reclaimed wood paneling, and river rock shower floors with rain shower heads. The nature-themed pool deck and outdoor bar, with fire pits, poolside service, and rentable cabanas, allow for simultaneous indulgence of the senses: taste, touch, sight, sound.
