I just returned from 5 nights at the Platinum, having chosen the hotel by reading reviews of hotels on this site. The first thing I want to point out is that while this hotel is "only" two blocks from the Strip, those are two very long blocks in the desert heat. We discovered a convenient indoor route--walk in thru the back entrance of Bally's (next to the employment center, under the monorail) and you can walk indoors up to the Strip or right into Paris. Once you get to the Strip, you're at the heart of things (much closer to many of the casinos like Paris or Caesar's than if you stay at either end of the Strip).
Our room was fantastic--having the kitchen saved us a lot of money on breakfasts and lunches (although there is not a grocery in walking
distance, so bringing food is best). The view was ok, not great, since we were on a low floor. They came and did our dishes and cleaned things up daily, which was really nice. If you're on a budget, don't plan on eating at the hotel--the restaurant/room service is very pricey.
The pool was wonderful--refreshingly cool with comfy, cushioned chairs in sun and shade. It was never crowded, even on the weekend.
The service was excellent and friendly.
Overall, I think this place is a great value for the money and I'd stay there again.
