    "Reception desk" is more often used for the general bulding or office.

    "Receptionist desk" is less often used, and for maybe one secretary or a private secretary.

    Really they are the same, although there may be a slight nuance between the two.
    Reception desk: Area and desk one goes to first when entering offices / hotel reception etc
    Receptionist's desk: desk where the receptionist sits (couldn't use this in a hotel situation)
