My wife and I stayed at the Platinum for 4 nights at Christmas. We chose the hotel because it was off of the strip and had large rooms at a good price. It was worth paying for a room with a strip view. It’s not a great view (see picture), but still nice & the balcony would be a fine place to have a drink when the outside temperature is right. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the strip (things are far apart in Vegas). You can get to the strip faster heading to the MGM grand by cutting through Bally’s on the left and then through Paris; cuts about 15 min off of going to the corner (Bellagio & Ceasar’s at the corner). You can also get to the Venetian by walking up the back road across from Bally (you pass an old Italian restaurant on the left. We were told to not eat there). It is a bit deserted, but go straight up the road with a slight curve to the left & walk through the Venetian parking garage and take the elevator up and presto you are in the mall; this saves about 30 min.
The hotel was fine and the staff pleasant. I thought the corridors needed a serious vacuuming, but otherwise the place was clean. We did not use the pool, but saw a lot of families using it in the cool weather. We did eat our breakfasts in the restaurant and they were much better than expected; pleasant staff there too.
With so many choices we would probably try another hotel next time (we’ve stayed at the Venetian twice and Treasure Island once). The walk to the strip is too long for many people and we did have to pass some questionable types on the way. The place looked like it was great for kids though as the pool was a big hit. It is way too quiet for Vegas, but that is the attraction.
