If you don't travel it really isn't worth it. I had it once before and got rid of it because, like you said, the fee was just too high to justify. Now that my girlfriend and I have the time and money to be able to travel a lot I can recoup the yearly fee in a single hotel stay when you take in to account free nights, room upgrades, hotel food, drink and spa credits, etc.
Unlike the PRG card I see you have, the Platinum card has no bonus categories for extra points, it's just one point per dollar for everything so you would actually earn less points than you do now. Though I do get 5,000 bonus points every year since I spend over $20K a year on the card because I have the Ameriprise Platinum. Normal Platinum cards don't get that.
