Platinum close to kids activities? No. The mantra is true, Vegas is not a good place for kids...

The Platinum is a nicer hotel.

The Platinum is a nicer hotel and closer to the Strip IIRC. There are no kids' activities and nothing really nearby. I also believe that you would have to reserve the two bedroom suite because of a 4 or 5 person limit in the Solitaire and possibly Princess suites.

The Platinum is a much nicer hotel. The Desert Rose is like staying at a Super 8 with a kitchen. Mostly clean, a little worn down, but leaves a lot to be desired. That being said, it is closer to more kid appropriate activities - the arcade at Excalibur, Rain Forest Cafe at MGM, Shark Reef at Mandalay.

We're at Desert Rose right now and have also stayed at Platinum.

Platinum is a much much nicer hotel. Desert Rose has not got enough sun loungers, and guests are reserving them. The majority of guests are British on cheap packages.

DR is probably closer to kids activities as already said. Depends on your priorities really.

A cab from Platinum to the airport should take 10-15 minutes and cost around $15.
