“Platinum is amazing. The only place I will stay in Vegas from now on.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2009

Platinum is by far the best hotel I have stayed at in Las Vegas!!! The service is beyond top-notch and you're treated like royalty. I've been to many Vegas hotels...and this surpasses all of them. And the rooms are not your typical Vegas rooms. The rooms are suites and they are huge!!! I will be back and will recommend this place to everyone I know. See you all in July.

We love that we found a non-smoking, non-casino hotel near the strip - thanks to your reviews! Service was great. First they gave us a handicapped room and because we are tall and everything in those rooms are low, we asked to be moved. It was handled quickly and we enjoyed our big suite and the balcony. Lighting could be improved in the bathroom, however.

Loved the pool and restaurant area on the 5th floor rooftop. Breakfast and lunch were delicious and very reasonably priced with great service. The pool wasn't crowded at all. It was nice to hang out there because we aren't gamblers. We didn't use the spa or 1st floor restaurant.

Unfortunately, we had almost constant high WINDs the entire 3 days we were there. We enjoy walking on nice warm days, but found the walk to be a chore in the wind. Also, the construction on Flamingo made it a bit hard to get a cab, for they had to go right out of the hotel and drive down quite a ways to turn around towards the strip.

Also, it irks me that there's a charge for internet at these Vegas hotels. Vegas finds a way to get into your wallet at every turn!

Ate at Joe's Seafood and Stone Crab and had a delicious meal but uppity service.

Overall though, we see why the Platinum gets consistent high ratings. Our AAA rate of $109 before tax (because we stayed at least 3 nights) was excellent for what we got.

Hotel has no casino that might put some people off but for us this was the main attraction as it is always good to have a quiet retreat to fall back on.
And this was just that, it is a block away from the Las Vegas Blvd with Ceasars Palace and the Bellagio at the top of the block (about 10 minute walk due to the huge block size in Vegas), Bally and Bills on the opposite corners.
Hotel itself is very clean and accomodating, staff are all polite and efficient, valet staff too were always willing to call taxis and offer directions.
Room - Amazing, huge and well fitted out. Junior suite was more than we bargained for with huge dining/kitchen area, one bedroom with queen size double and then the bathroom with its shower, double sink and large whirlpool tub for two so no complaints here....
Food - Only had breakfast but this was very good indeed and not too expensive if the specials were chosen and they were worth choosing - all fresh and slightly unique options that really hit the spot.
All in all a great stop if the lure of casino can wait till a night out - would go back again without hesitation.

The hotel is a short walk from the Strip and the suites are fantastic. No smoking, which is a real plus. Size of suite and facilities makes it real value. Pool area is great, not too busy. Have to pay for internet access though and is $14 per 24 hours so factor that into the room cost. Also valet parking only.

Since I celebrated my 21st birthday in Vegas in 1970, I thought it would be fun to go back to "celebrate" my 60th. After reading T.A. reviews, I decided on the Platinum Hotel. It is about 3 blocks off of the strip, but we had no problem walking to/from during the day and night. We were greeted by a very friendly front desk staff, and were delighted to be upgraded to the 18th floor since it was my b'day.The room had a full kitchen, living room, fireplace, soaking tub, balcony and great view of the "mt. side" of Vegas.
The bartenders at the lobby bar were gregarious and chatty, and made awesome cocktails! There are comfy chairs and cocktail tables for ordering appetizers in this bar. The restaurant is on a top floor next to the rooftop pool, and we enjoyed a lunch there.
The concierge was incredibly helpful helping us with restaurant reservations. I had already reserved seats for two shows ( "O" at the Bellagio-unbelievably wonderful show-don't miss it! "The Jersey Boys"- just ok) and she called to confirm these also. Guest services here are efficient and helpful.
Friends from El Seguendo, Calf. joined us, and my friend Bonnie treated me to a massage and pedicure at the Platinum spa. She joined me, and we were "wowed" with how beautiful the spa was. The entire experience was relaxing and theraputic. Would highly recommend the spa services here.
One of the most important things to mention is that this is NOT a casino hotel, so when you have been deluged all day with loud casino noises and cigarette smoke on "the strip", you will be happy to walk into a quiet smokefree lobby on the way up to your comfortable room at the Platinum.
Restaurant opinion- do not eat at nearby restaurant" Tillermans"- overpriced with 1960's style food and service. Try nearby Firefly ( tapas) instead.

Great place, though not a casino hotel. In a nutshell: this hotel offers terrific value for full amenity suites. It is NOT less expensive than a standard Las Vegas room at any strip resort. That is the wrong comparison, though. It IS much less expensive than a suite at a strip casino resort.
You get a full size bedroom, which is seperate from the living room, as well as a full size kitchen. The bathroom is very large and includes a jauzzi whirlpool. You also get a balcony with table and chairs.
We paid approx. 200/night and found it worthwhile. If you had to stay for more than a few days, the full size kitchen would quickly pay off via savings from eat-in meals, avoiding the restaurant dining that can add co$ts to any trip when away from home.

Four Canadians (me, DH and 2 daughters 21 and 18 yrs old) arrived on a very busy day - this hotel was sold out for this weekend as were many others. We had booked this online 4 months ago and we looked at some other possibilities as the trip drew nearer and realised we were very lucky to have such a good rate, so we kept the ressie. We were so surprised on arrival that we had been upgraded to a Princess Suite without even asking! It was very spacious and in great condition (hotel opened in 2006).
The pool area was small but not crowded even on a sold out day and in the middle of a heat wave (all 3 days were a sweltering 100+F). The kids really enjoyed the pool using it to cool down and tan themselves.
We had breakfast once at Kilowat (which also services the pool area) and used a coupon from restaurant.com so it was good value for our money.
We had a few questions (e.g. is there an ipod dock - no, is there coffee provided with the coffee maker - yes, is internet free- no but there is a kiosk next to the front desk that charges by the minute) that we emailed the hotel beforehand and they always answered within a few hours.
Valet parking can get busy but we called down a few minutes b4 we left the room and we never had to wait more than a couple of minutes once and the other times the car was already waiting. We like the Wynn/Fashion Show/Palazzo area and it was less than 5 minutes by car if we took Howard Hughes and then Sands. We walked to Ellis Island for breakfast one morning and stopped at the 7-11 next door and stocked up on drinks.

The only complaint we had was that the 2 bathroom doors were always locked from the outside when closed and we had to be careful not to close both of them or we would have been locked out of the bathroom! Also someone had stolen the room number (literally pried it off the wall!) so we walked right past it the first time.
