After a more than 14 year delay, Las Vegas’ tallest casino-hotel is finally back on track. And the man in charge of bringing Fontainebleau Las Vegas to life is veteran hotelier Cliff Atkinson. He talks about growing up in San Francisco wanting to be a chef and run a restaurant – and how he morphed into running hotels.
But Cliff spends most of the episode discussing the “full circle” journey of Fontainebleau Las Vegas from near-completion in 2007, abandonment in 2008, subsequent ownership changes, and how its original owner is now poised to complete the property and open next year.
Hosts: Jonathan Jossel, Lisa Melmed
