The coastal California destination offers guests and groups a refreshed wellness experience.

Hotel Paradox, Autograph Collection (Hotel Paradox), announces the completion of its property-wide renovation that includes the transformation of the guest arrival experience, enhanced lobby design, 8,000-square-feet of upgraded indoor and outdoor event space, reimagined amenities, and a premier dining experience - Solaire Restaurant + Bar. The modern redesign was led by EoA Group and features a juxtapose of urban and forest elements, utilizing naturally sourced materials, and celebrates the Santa Cruz lifestyle with murals by local artist, Jeremiah Kille.

Located less than an hour away from major Bay Area airports, the biophilic designed hotel showcases live and preserved mosses, plants, and greenery throughout the property, with tree trunks incorporated in the lobby and energy-efficient LED lighting that compliments the textural materials, polished stone and wood grain that expands from the common spaces to each private room retreat. Surrounded by California Redwoods, the pool deck is a vibrant center of the hotel, steps away from the main lobby and guestrooms, and encompasses an outdoor terrace, hot tub, cabanas and fire pit - serving as a hub for many special events and intimate gatherings.

Solaire Restaurant + Bar, led by Executive Chef Stefen Shatto, operates from 7am-9pm daily and pairs a nature/nurture themed American menu with sustainable, local ingredients inspired by East Asian flavors. The premier eatery features the "Inverted Gardens" by San Diego artist, Britton Beubacher, which is a series of five moss sculptures suspended from the ceiling to create a cascading foliage floating effect over tables as if the forest floor has paradoxically become the sky.

Additional amenities within the property include a 24/7 fitness center, complimentary skateboards and an on-property bike rental, free library book exchange, a pet-friendly guest experience, and a rooftop apiary with sustainable honey harvest.
