Just minutes away from all of the energy and excitement of the Strip, the Platinum Hotel & Spa provides couples with a fully personalized planning experience that is complemented by unparalleled service and dedication. From the hotel’s wedding sites, service standard, wedding trends and more, we at Bridal Spectacular teamed up with Hava Busso, the Senior Catering Sales Manager, to provide Las Vegas brides and grooms with an inside look at the wedding experience at the Platinum.
Bridal Spectacular: What about the Platinum Hotel would you like to highlight to couples?
Hava: The Platinum Hotel is one of the only non-gaming and non-smoking properties in the city, which sets our property apart from others right away. We are an all-suite hotel, which includes suites starting at 900 square-feet up to 2,200 square-feet with full kitchens. These rooms also have spacious bathrooms with a Jacuzzi, oversized living room, balcony and separate bedroom with a gorgeous view. We are off-strip, but close enough to where we are definitely immersed in the action and are not more than a five-minute walk from great attractions, such as the LINQ, The Cromwell and Bally’s.
We have two wedding venues, both of which feature indoor and outdoor spaces. Our Misora rooftop venue has an absolutely stunning panoramic view of the Las Vegas Strip, which is one of the most beautiful backdrops for a wedding. Our pool deck and Kilawat Restaurant venue also offers beautiful Strip views, while providing guests with a more casual, yet modern environment for their wedding.
What really makes us unique, aside from our boutique-style property and gorgeous venues, is our service standard. From the pre-planning and the detailing, to the hotel stay and the night of the event, our brides are in constant contact with our catering and event managers to ensure that nothing is overlooked. We pride ourselves in our excellent customer service and attention to detail — and the one compliment that we constantly receive is our dedication to personalized service for each and every couple.
Bridal Spectacular: What additional wedding services do you offer?
Hava: As part of any of our wedding packages, the couple will receive a complimentary suite for the night of their event, as well as an complimentary courtesy rate and web link for their guests. This way their guests can book and stay at our hotel without the couple having to block rooms in the contract.
Bridal Spectacular: How do you help a couple create their perfect wedding?
Hava: We truly provide our couples with top-notch personalized service from beginning-to-end. We offer all-inclusive packages that feature a variety of food and beverage options, as well as service additions, such as photographers, DJs, and floral. In order to ensure every detail is perfect, we actually put the vendors in direct contact with the couple so that they can obtain the information needed to ensure they are providing the exact service the couple has envisioned. The couple will also have their own team of banquet staff and their event manager onsite for the day and night of the wedding to ensure everything goes flawlessly.
Bridal Spectacular: What are the current trends you’ve been seeing with weddings?
Hava: We have seen a lot more requests for king’s/family-style tables. It seems that couples want to be immersed with their guests in a more intimate setting. For colors, white and light colors are more of what our brides are leaning toward; they like the softer, lighter look. For floral, we see a lot of Baby’s Breath used as the main flower, which goes hand-in-hand with the lighter feel of the décor.
Bridal Spectacular: Is there anything else you would like to share about the wedding experience at the Platinum?
Hava: Many people come to Las Vegas for their weddings and want to be right on the Strip because of the energy and action. We offer that same energy and excitement, while also providing personalized service and dedication.
