Director of Sales, South Point Hotel & Spa
Las Vegas

Some have called Robinson the official Las Vegas hotel opener. She opened the MGM Grand/Bally’s in 1973 and worked at the Sands Hotel from 1992 to 1994. Robinson moved on to the preopening and opening of The Venetian in 1999, the preopening and opening of the Aladdin (now Planet Hollywood) from 1998 to 2000, and finally reached her “retirement” home opening the South Point Hotel & Spa in 2005. Robinson loves the culture and freedom of the “old Vegas” management owned by legend Michael Gaughan.

Career Accomplishments
Robinson’s biggest accomplishments have been teaching people throughout her career. She has taught classes at UNLV and CSN and loves interacting with youth and deriving information and knowledge from them. Staying current is essential in this business but also never forgetting the “old ways”—she still calls people on the phone. Robinson truly believes the hospitality business is the best.
