Pricing and services: The Platinum is an all-suite hotel with rooms starting at 950 square feet and going up to 2200+.  It is a non-gaming hotel.  The staff at the Platinum have, as of fall 2011 and spring 2012, been pushing really hard into the wedding market and that means there's been some really great deals to be had there on ceremonies and receptions, both in-suite and arranged by the hotel.  They've had really great reviews on service as well.  One of their more interesting venues is the 100-person rooftop option with both strip and mountain views.  They also offer indoor and pool-side.

Platinum does not currently have self-parking; they are complimentary valet only; just an FYI.

If you're planning a ceremony/reception on their rooftop terrace, keep in mind the time of year and time of day for heat reasons; it can still be uncomfortably hot at night in some months.  Some discussion on this on TK is in this thread (CLICK) and average temps are located HERE.

Some notes I have on their rooms; you can get up to about 15 people in a princess suite but there will not be enough seating, and you should definitely not go over that amount.  The marquise suite will hold 30 people but you'll still have the seating issue.  Getting seating brought in from a third party vendor could be a bit trickier at Platinum since it's smaller, no self parking and staff are more attentive; someone wheeling a stack of 20 chairs across the lobby might draw attention that it doesn't draw in the big resorts.
