I'm writing this review three full years after I stayed at this hotel, so you'll get a rarity on the internet: a seasoned perspective.
There is nothing negative to say about this hotel, unless you don't care for ultra-modern architecture and lots of glass. If you're looking for a hotel with a Mexican feel, this is the last place you want to stay. By chance, I'd stayed a good five nights at a run-down hotel before moving to Seven Crowns . . . staying in a dumpy hotel has its charms (as long as your stuff isn't stolen) because you DO get more of an authentic feel. I enjoyed it for its shabby architecture and forward and friendly staff, but they were VERY surprised that I was "movin' on up" to Seven Crowns. Apparently it's the hotel to stay at (as it was just opening in 2003) so I got a kick out of being cool for once. Anyway, I must admit that I was in awe of my seven crowns room and half-wall with glass bathroom. No, I didn't miss the cockroaches and ripped up door from the last hotel (and if I wasn't so low-tech I'd post the picture of the door) but I took them in a spirit of fun, not to diss the hotel. Well, seven crowns has nice big modern rooms. There's a dinky little jacuzzi on the roof with magnificient town and desert views. A restaurant serves good food . . . if you go up on the roof at sundown, you get a really good view of the malecon, people, and all of the car crusing. Being from Los Angeles, what impressed me about their citizens was the absolute lack of cholos, vatos, and trouble makers . . . all the young Mexicans were out cruising each night having fun, 1950's style. No guns, no sense of threat. I walked many of La Paz's streets night and day - you can see why they named the town The Peace.
The hotel itself is only about four stories high and located right across from the ocean. It's easy to book excursions to go snorkeling, island hopping, etc. which I did and met a nice young couple from Italy that I went out to dinner with. You're about a ten minute walk from downtown where the price for scooped ice cream is cheap . . . they saw my face every single day! The staff at the hotel was very helpful. If you come from CA, you can book a flight directly to La Paz . . . don't get stuck being sidelined in Hermosillo like I did! Lastly, unfortunately, the beaches directly in front of La Paz are polluted (not visually but everyone warned me against going in the water and in a week's time I never once saw anyone go in) but you can take a taxi to swimming beaches). It's very pretty and it has no odor, so I don't want you to think you won't enjoy being near it, nor the cooling sea breezes that come off of it at dusk. I love the heat but La Paz is hot, hot, hot, hot, hot . . . book outside of summer if you don't like that sort of thing.
