“Great hotel, decent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2007

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.

I absolutely loved this hotel. Was a little worried due to some previous guest concerns but was extremely pleased by what I actually found.

Stayed Friday night, May 18 in the Solitaire suite... no check-in line at 6pm. Got the Strip view upgrade. We walked in and were stunned by how big it was - expected more of a Flamingo-sized room (ie, big enough but not extravagant). The suite was very well decorated - felt right at home. Well lit. Great a/c system, though yes, in the king suite the vent will blow on the bed... but we like it chilly). Bathroom was quite nice, loved the jacuzzi, beds very comfy. Loved the view from the balcony; we were on the 10th floor looking down the street towards Bally's and Flamingo. Ordered late night room service and was pleased, though I did think $40 for two 12" pizzas was a little extreme the next am... then again, I was fairly tipsy when I ordered... :)

Ate at the Resturaunt Saturday am - great food! On the expensive side compared to home, but hey, it's Vegas. Had a couples spa treatment Saturday am. Ladies, my guy traditionally is not a spa-goer, will get a massage every now and then... but even he was impressed by the facility! It's dimly lit with browns and blues color scheme. Ladies room was very nice - personal locks, full assortment of toiletries, water and towels everywhere. Very helpful staff! The Rejoice package was GREAT: it's a DIY scrub (we had kiwi-coconut) and mud application - had a blast "painting" each other with mud. You're in your own room with massage tables and a seperate shower and sauna area - after we were done scrubbing and painting, we sat in the sauna, then showered off. To finish, we had a 50 min massage... best massage I've ever had and that's saying something! Very pleased by the whole session :) I would recommend checking in with the front desk early and confirming each portion of your treatment - somehow it wasn't communicated to the therapist that I preferred a deep-tissue massage, but it was a very very minor thing and easily rectified :)

Pool area is a bit small but we went out around noon - 2pm and there were still plenty of chaise lounges and we were able to snag a couples lounger (big mattress thing). Seemed like the service was very attentive (we didn't want anything); the waitress was busy rushing around :)

I don't recommend Vegas for families with kids under the gambling age, but if you have to bring them along, this would be a good place to do so - suites are quite large, easy walk to the Strip, heck, make your own meals to save $$. Would also be a great place for groups - we saw several bachelorette and bachelor party groups there.

Thoroughly enjoyed the stay - have been recommending it to all my friends. We even got to speak with the manager during breakfast - he made sure we were having a good stay and was very keen on making sure any problems were rectified... I'd speak with the managerial staff vs front desk staff if you have any problems.

  • Liked — Staff helpfulness, suite design and comfort
  • Disliked — Food $$ was a little high

This place was great. All rooms are close to brand new suites with full kitchens, living room, bedrooms and luxury baths. We stayed in the Solitare Suite which was very spacious and comfortable (900 sf). The entire suite was great and the bed was very comfortable. The only drawback would be it is a ten minute walk to the strip or $7-$8 cab ride. If you are willing to walk th extra few minutes, this place is worth it. The pool was very nice and not crowded at all, the spa was very easy to book and the concierge was very helpful.

  • Liked — spacious suite with like new amenities
  • Disliked — a little walk to the strip
