Hotel Paradox, Autograph Collection - Santa Cruz, California [Master Thread]

Hotel website:

http://www.marriott.com/hotels/trave...ph-collection/

Category 8. No lounge, so cont'l brekkie for Gold/Plats in the restaurant (just called the property).

"Hotel Paradox embodies the natural beauty of the area, featuring the elements of Santa Cruz that are NOT the beach and traditionally thought of as secondary: 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 front desk and white squirrels showing up in unexpected places. The nature/nurture theme restaurant 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 blue sky. Guest rooms feature natural forest elements in the décor, including wooden stump tables, reclaimed wood paneling, and river rock shower floor with rain shower heads. The pool deck and outdoor bar, with fire pits, poolside service and rentable cabanas, allow for simultaneous indulgence of the senses: taste, touch, sight, sound. Situated less than 1 mile from the historic Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, and an easy walk to the bustling downtown."

"Santa Cruz's Hotel Paradox is now a part of Marriott's Autograph Collection of independent properties. Located on Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz, 45 minutes south of San Jose, the property recently underwent a renovation that created an open floor plan in the hotel's lobby, restaurant and bar, added new guest room furniture and refreshed the fire pits and poolside cabanas surrounding the property's outdoor pool."

Cheers.
