We discovered this hotel about 2 years ago and we have been staying here ever since when we visit Santa Cruz. Apparently it is owned by Marriott so you do get Marriot rewards point too. The hotel is modern, clean and the staff are super friendly and helpful. We wanted a refrigerator and microwave in the room and they happily obliged. The hotel restaurant is also upscale and have good food with both vegetarian and nonvegetarian options. They have a heated outdoor pool and jacuzzi. But the best of all is the location of the hotel. It is a 5 minute walk to the main strip in Santa Cruz where all the shops and restaurants are. Since parking is a hassle in Santa Cruz, it is nice to be able to walk from the hotel to every spot. We also walked from the hotel to the beach/boardwalk. And that takes about 15 minutes. Buttery which is one of the best bakeries in Santa Cruz is also within walking distance. And a new vegetarian place has just opened less than a block from the hotel. Wholefoods is also close by and is about 10-15 minutes walking.
