Just had 4 nights here and pretty much all good. Must be my 25 ish trip to LV. Stayed at a few places over the years and also have had a separate night at the end of my trip in downtown for a different experience. As far as the strip area hotels concerned my last few visits have been New York New York and Signature. The latter being more comparable to the Platinum. All the reviews about the room quality are exactly right, the rooms are huge and well laid out. The massive breakfast counter was perfect for my notebook and laying out my stuff, loved it while enjoying a coffee or snack. I have the Princess suite but looking now at the floor plans they dont seem to much different from the solitaires so may do that next time. Having a washer / dryer in the room was brilliant, I work out at the gym 2 x day so being able to wash my own stuff was just great. The non smoking aspect is not to be overlooked and a big plus is a state that still is pretty open about smoking. Having free valet parking was good too and I never had to wait more than a couple of minutes. My only small gripes would be
1- The gym is ok, Startrac equipment but not in the best order and the cross trainers took a little work. I used to work with these so now what I'm doing. The entertainment system is a little poor to with just 3 channels to the tv's one of which was not working right. I was pretty much alone though so unlike some hotels where you're fighting for equipment there were no issues here. Its one of the few areas I can think that the Signature scores mush higher, its gym is exceptional.
2- I was on the 6th floor by the dreaded fans, these kicked in and you knew about it, otherwise there was no noise at all and you're not far from the pool and no issues, would have wanted to be a little higher.
3- Some may well be bothered by the location. The comment by a previous reviewer about 7/11 is spot on, you will pass a few folk that you really would like to avoid, shows the less glitzy side of LV and I never felt in any trouble but if I had my wife with me she would not be happy passing these people right by the hotel. Its about 10 minutes to Bally's the nearest main strip hotel. Most strip hotels it can take a while just to get to the front door / outside, at the Platinum at least you are not wading through acres of casino so I doubt the time factor was a huge difference. Again compared to the Signature you had a massive walk there to get to the strip but it was all covered and totally safe.
So I'm not sure which I would go back to on a future trip. Alone - then the Platinum and with my wife then possibly the Signature but both are decent choices if you prefer to have a room with more ammenities than a plain hotel room and want to be just a little away from the actual casino.
