We stayed in "uno".
The suite is fabulously decorated in a hip, modern way. Great Mexican/western theme, modern media (huge tv), retro feel (record player), in the middle of LA's hipster area. Walking distance to a movie theater, some coffee shops, restaurants, grocery store, etc. The suite is perfect for partying, romance, vegging out. The maid staff was very friendly.
I have to mention that if you are sensitive to noise, this suite won't work for you. We stayed on Friday/Saturday (not one of the loud DJ nights), and it was still "noisy" by hotel standards - it's above a bar and you can hear people talking and faint music playing until the bar closes. This wasn't a big problem for us (at most a mild annoyance but we slept through most it). If you are planning on being up anyway, no biggie. If you are deep sleeper, no biggie. If you are a light sleeper and going to bed at 10PM, you might bring a white noise track on your ipod (they have ipod docks). Also, there was a very-low pulsing noise through most of the day (couldn't figure out if it was the restaurant A/C or maybe a dishwasher/laundry machine?).
There were a couple of other minor annoyances (the universal remote was hard to work, the hair dryer didn't quite work, the lighting is great for mood lighting but not great for being functional), but these were super minor and easily outweighed by the great room and unique experience of staying here.
I would definitely stay there again were I to visit the area.
