I stumbled upon this property while searching for a convenient location for an overnight in Santa Cruz. Though there are many choices of lodging, Marriott's "autograph selection" label caught my eye so I booked it. Was I glad about my decision. I arrived in the hotel to find a building that was clearly remodeled from what might have been an apartment building but the transformation was done quite tastefully and in a very modern style that I was pleasantly surprised to find such a property in Santa Cruz. The room decor was very inviting, functional and comfortable. The bathroom size was a bit small yet so well designed that any misgivings were quickly forgotten. And the mattresses were one of the most comfortable pillow tops I have ever slept in. We sampled the restaurant thru breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed the taste and impressed with the service. The pool/jacuzzi area was well set up and would have been the place to hang out for a long time had we had more time in the hotel. Overall, we found this property to have the character and design elements that an Autograph brand location should
