Who We Are...

Since 1973, BPR has developed and managed unique hotels that were designed to create lasting memories. We strive to bring real passion and creativity into every project. As a family owned company, our team and hotels are a reflection of our core values: To be scrappy and hardworking, to be authentic and humble, to always seek to understand and be committed to growth.

The BPR team is a group of self-starters and outside the box thinkers. We are scrappy individuals who are committed to team growth. To us, every interaction and project is a chance to create a unique experience. It's a chance to roll up our sleeves and work with the resources we have. That's how we got our start.

Today, BPR is a company of 600 employees, with thirteen lifestyle and branded hotels, all unique to the communities they serve. Although we have grown tremendously since the beginning, the same core principles passed down from our founder remain intact. That's why we are committed to finding creative individuals who have what it takes to get the job done.

Help us build something unique.

Managed by BPR Properties, The Hotel Paradox is 170-room hotel located in Downtown Santa Cruz, less than a mile from the Beach. The Hotel Paradox welcomes employees into a serene, but whimsical environment where nature is playfully blended with sophisticated style. Paradox prides itself on bringing a chic luxury style hotel into a causal beach setting. To add to the fun, the Hotel Paradox also features a Farm to Table restaurant with an indoor/outdoor bar overlooking a lively pool deck.
