Platinum Hotel and Spa
Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
... hose ruptured so Stan has to take a look at it to try and fix it. Figured we would give the ground a chance to dry before he crawled under the rv. We noticed a rv repair shop close so will walk there in the morning to see about getting new clamps or what not for the van. Just like home, where furnace went before we left, we carried the destiny with us.

Historical Traveler Reviews Platinum Hotel and Spa Las Vegas
Your own luxury apartment in Vegas
I had the pleasure of staying in the Platinum for a night at the end of January. Upon arriving I was greeted and my bags carried into reception. The atmosphere was polite and casual, the fittings and decor are modern and fresh. The hotel is brand new, so everything is spotless. There had been a problem with my email booking confirmation, but check-in was trouble free.
The Solitaire room itself... well it's a small luxury condo, simple as that. There's a large fridge freezer, oven, hob, microwave and sink, plus cutlery and crockery. The kitchen is separated by a breakfast bar from the living area, which contains a sofa, table, and desk. To top it off, there's a balcony with a set of patio furniture for some al fresco dining should that take your fancy. The living area and separate bedroom both have TVs. The bathroom has a large spa bath and separate shower.
I was tired when I arrived, so decided to check out the room service menu. A simple cheeseburger with crisps and a coke (see the pics) added up to $17, which isn't too bad compared to some. It was delivered in under 10 minutes (despite the lady on the phone saying it would be 30-40 minutes) and was extremely good.
The only bad point about the Platinum is the 10-15 minute walk from the strip. If you don't have a problem with that then I wholeheartedly recommend it.
Non-smoking, Non-gaming Suite I could have lived in
I was quite surprised at the difference between the price of the hotel which was really cheap for Las Vegas and the level of amenities. I live in Las Vegas and I know most of the hotels and have stayed at most of them at one point or another but this one just popped up last month. I get so many family member coming to stay at my house that I will leave my own house and stay at a hotel until they are gone. Sad, but that happens to people who live in Vegas.
The location of this hotel is squeezed in right behind Bally's but with an awesome panoramic view of virtually the entire Strip. But the coolest thing was undoubtedly that the rooms were actual suites. They were like luxury condos with all of the things you need to live in like a microwave, frig, dishes, wine glasses and silverware. This was a nicer condo than the ones I've rented in Orlando or Maui. And the place still has the new hotel smell. And I had a 42 inch plasma instead of those small ones like they have at the Wynn Resort.
There is just no concievable way that this place is going to be priced under $250 a night in the near future when people find out about it. Years ago, the Rio All-Suite Hotel used to be a 'locals' secret hangout because the rooms were huge and the service was great and it wasn't full of tourists. I think Platinum now has that title - at least until all of the tourists find out about it. I don't know of anyplace else where you get a 1000 sq ft suite with a full kitchen an a jacuzzi tub for two for under $300 in Vegas anymore.
And they have a Thursday night 'Greys Anatomy' cocktail party in the downstairs lounge every week and that is a pretty nice spot to meet women. The bartender makes some amazing drinks like a Rose Martini and one which takes like a Latte but with butt-kicking potency. And try the 'grilled cheese' sandwich at the bar which has like 5 or 6 imported cheeses in it
I recently stayed at the Platinum hotel and I had to write a review. This hotel is an absolute steal for the price. It is located a block and half away from the Bellagio and the rooms were superb. The room we stayed in was absolutely spotless we had a phenomenal view of the strip. I have stayed at The Venetian and I could honestly say this was a far nicer hotel. However, I wouldn't say it is a five star hotel but then again it is a third of the price of the Bellagio. I would highly recommend this hotel. I would also like to mention the breakfast was great especially the Crème Brule French Toast. Those who wrote negative reviews they need to understand the price to value is what makes this hotel a bargain. If you were looking for 5 stars you would pay three times as much.
Like a new car
Staying at the Platinum was like driving a new luxury car of the dealer's lot. The entire building has a refreshing new hotel smell which is a welcome change from the smoke filled hotels on the strip. The large one bedroom suites are designer decorated with a modern, easy on the eyes, theme. The furniture is clean and functional. The bed is very comfortable and I have rarely slept better in a hotel. A bonus, since the room has a patio, I could leave the patio door open for fresh air.
Unfortunately during my visit this place had a few annoying problems which led me to give it only a four out of five rating.
1) The room safe hijacked my wallet. I couldn't open it, the hotel security couldn't open it, the manufacturer had to be called. Twelve hours later the safe spit out my money. 2) I was woken up at 12:30 am by a security staff informing me that there was a report that items were being thrown of a patio. I understand him having to do his job, but this harsh guy needs some lessons in late night customer diplomacy especially with hotel guests who are decades past the throwing things of the patio stage. 3) The movie channel on the television wasn't working. They guys trying to fix it agreed to come back the next morning but never did. 4) Two lightbulbs in the bathroom were not working for the entire week of our stay and finally 5) the bathroom shower door is poorly designed and leaks...badly.
I could easily have given this hotel a lower rating but I didn't because this is a REALLY NICE hotel. If the hotel management improves then the Platinum can become one of the the best off-strip hotels.
I stayed at the Platinum on December 22nd and 23rd. I couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The room was very spacious, with brand new furniture, a full kitchen and a plasma television in the living room. Outside my balcony was a great view of the strip. I loved the fact that the Platinum had an indoor/outdoor pool and a fitness room. I also liked the food at the Platinum restaurant. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to Las Vegas.
I booked through vegas.com and got a suite for $100/night plus a 25% off "chip" towards any food or spa service. The Platinum looked nice enough online but in reality it was spectacular.
In fact, when I got to my room the first thing that came to mind was "wow they must have given me the wrong room because I didn't pay nearly enough for this..."
My suite had two flat screen TV's, a spacious bathroom with a gigantic jacuzzi, a large kitchen with stainless steel fridge, stove, dishwasher etc. And then there was the best view I've had in Vegas out my patio door.
Platinum gets bonus points for cleanliness, nice-smelling shampoo and lotion and fantastic food and service.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will certainly stay there again.
Platinum wins the gold!
My husband and I stayed at this hotel by a mere fluke, but will DEFINITELY be staying there again. The service was exquisite. My husband is a strict vegetarian and they custom made him an entree at The Restaurant that was artistic as well as filling. Their dessert menu was limited but absolutely spectacular. We ordered the smore's cake which came with a "campfire in a glass", amazing! The room was beautiful, the bed comfortable and the bathtub was bliss. We live in Vegas and have seen many of the more expensive hotels, which don't even compare. Two thumbs way up!
We have just returned from a stay at the Platinum Hotel andSpa in Las Vegas. This is an absolutely beautiful hotel with a contemporary design. The rooms are beautiful with full kitchen (with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops). The bathroom is huge with double sinks and separate shower and extra large jetted tub. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, right down to the valet people.
The plasma TV in the living room above the fireplace is wonderful. Also, having a washer and dryer in the room was extremely helpful.
I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel my next visit to Las Vegas.
Brand New with lots of potential
We stayed at this hotel on the first night it opened. The lobby, bar, restaurant and rooms are beautifully appointed. The bell staff, front desk staff and wait staff were professional, nice and extremely helpful.
We had to call several (4-6) times to have our room made up and the third day it was never made up (refreshed). We finally just grabbed some fresh towels from the supply room which was across the hall. After inquiring, it seems as though they are having problems finding the proper help for housekeeping.
Since it was the first week of operation, the pool was not yet opened even though I had called the week before we arrived and they said it would be. Also, the spa was not yet open. The fitness room was operational and is very nice.
Management seems not to be communicating the appropriate information to the employees who directly interface with customers. Questions such as "Is the pool open?" were answered with "I can find out for you." This from the front desk staff. One would think management would communicate simple things like this to the front desk staff on a daily basis.
When and if they work out the kinks, this could be an awesome place to stay. Slightly off the beaten path but close enough to all the action - prepare to walk!
Beautiful Hotel- Best Value in Las Vegas
The Platinum Hotel is absolutely beautiful. The Platinum is a brand new hotel located about a block from the strip off of Flamingo and Koval. The lobby is gorgeous with marble floors and stylish furniture. The employees are all very friendly that greet you with a kind smile. The hotel is small with 255 rooms but, it is nice to stay at a non gaming hotel for a change. The rooms, however, are huge with full kitchens including granite countertops, stainless steel refrigerator, microwave, whirlpool tubs, a shower, and a complete living room with a sofa bed and plasma television. The room rates are also very reasonable for the quality of this hotel. Check out their website at ---. You won't be disappointed.
