    Hello All,

    Has anyone stayed at the Platinum Hotel, just a couple blocks away from Bally's?

    I'm still deciding on whether to stay at the TI, getting a petite suite (great location) but when I looked at the Platinum, their rates were almost identical to TI, and I can get a room with a fireplace, full kitchen, balcony, etc. for about the same price as TI. We will be going to Vegas in late fall, so a fireplace may be an added plus.:)

    I am familiar with the Platinum's location, and even though a bit of a walk to Bally's or the strip, not a huge deal breaker.

    Would like to know how you were treated, suites clean, beds comfy, and any other comments you all may be able to add.

    Thank you in advance.

    I used to be affiliated with a national association that would hold a couple workshop meetings in Las Vegas annually. Since these trips were government-funded, many in our ranks were nervous about getting approval to stay at any gaming properties. So we bounced back 'n forth between the Platinum and the Trump. I really enjoyed the Platinum. The rooms were very nice and I thought their staff did an exceptional job of catering to our group of 20-30.

    2 years ago my son his wife and their friends got a Marquise Suite near the top of the hotel and they thought it was the best room they ever stayed in Las Vegas. This room has a wrap around balcony facing the strip. If I can recall what they said housekeeping was spot on and if you wanted groceries just call and they would have anything you want delivered to your room. If I am not mistaken most of the rooms have a full kitchen with everything you would need. Their only concern was the late night walk back to the hotel, which they never encountered any problems it is just dodging the cars crossing over Flamingo and Koval. Funny Platinum Hotel was mentioned because it seems to get lost in all the conversations since it is non gaming.

    We have stayed there many times. With our longer trips, it's great to have a full kitchen and laundry facilities.

    I like the location and we enjoy having breakfast on the balcony. They have a daily happy hour in the bar with half priced drinks and appetisers.

    Be aware that it's a completely non smoking hotel.

    Pebbles,

    I forgot you had stayed there last year.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay and liked it.

    We're only going to be there for 3 days, but it will be nice to stay in a non smoking non gaming property. There are plenty of hours in the day for me to gamble. LOL

    Patripman,

    Thanks for your input and review on the Platinum.

    Now, I am exited about staying there.

    We're looking at the Princess Suite, just hubby and I, and it looks amazing.

    Smartone,

    It's nice to hear that your group had a pleasant stay.

    It appears this is THE place to stay in Vegas. LOL

    I love the fact, that it has a full kitchen, grocery delivery (may not use that, but who knows), and lots of room to move around in.

    Non smoking is another great factor, and yes, hubby and I gamble, but it will be so nice to actually go to our room and not have to wander through a casino, and put up with cigarette smoke. Yeah!!

    Thank you!

    If you're happy with the deal you have with them, I would go ahead. It's almost home from home for us now.

    Well, better than home, because it's minus the utility bills and council stuff.

    I will try to post a pic of our suite. It may contain my OH in bed, but is shows the layout. Please ignore him.

    Ok, I have a video that is about 70 seconds long and it is too big to upload.

    1- Can I split it into segments to load?
    2- Can I upload it in a different way?
    3- If I send it to someone, can they do it for me! Pretty please.

    If you can get the video to upload, I would love to see it.:)

    For the Princess suite we are looking at about 115.00 a night with my AARP discount. :) It pays to be old. LOL

    They are a good deal. Don’t forget the resort fee though.

    Pebbles,

    If their web site is correct, the resort fee is 28.00, cheaper than the strip properties. Hope it is current.

    Pebbles,

    I was surprised their resort fee was lower than most properties.

    If you like it, check into purchasing one, lol. They are CHEAP! But with that low price comes a lot of gotcha's. Like you cannot stay more than 28 days at a time. Yes, you own it, but you still cannot stay full time. If you do not put it in the rental pool, you have to pay an extra fee. Like around $1000 a month, on top of your regular HOA's. So not only can you not live in it, if you do try to live in it, you have to pay an extra $1000 a month. But hey, a super nice place for under $150k.

    Hi Tatterdema,

    We just like visiting Vegas, not living there. LOL

    Thank you for the review though and I am so glad that everyone likes it, that has stayed there.

    I will be writing a long trip report when we get back,, but we are not going for a few months, so it will be awhile. LOL

    I am sure you will like it. It is a bargain at the rental prices, and a lot of the units are over the top nice. Looking forward to your review! I came across it while looking for condo's. Thought it had to be a mistake, a large one bedroom on one of the top floors for about $175k, sold originally for over 600k in 2006. A lot of people took a bath in this building.

    We stay there a lot. Love the home from home feel on a long trip. We sometimes switch it up with a few nights at a strip hotel if we get deals, but are also happy staying there for the whole trip.

    Rotty,

    Can you state a few of the details regarding it starting to look tired and possibly needing some updates?

    Thank you.
