Located in Calle Doctor Jose Naveiras, in front of the Rambla de Santa Cruz and Garcia Sanabria beautiful gardens, the Mencey hotel is an institution in Santa Cruz. It is the first major hotel in the city which was frequented by all the nobility and businessmen in the last century. It is located just outside of the old town, but there is also so much nature that surrounds it. Now the hotel is part of the Sheraton chain Starwood group. The hotel was built in a style reminiscent of the old Canarian houses, but it was recently renovated and is very comfortable. There are a total of 286 rooms, some of which are suites.
