One of the best perks of The Platinum Card® from American Express ($550 annual fee) and The Business Platinum® Card from American Express ($450 annual fee) is access to Centurion Lounges. These lounges are for the most part significantly better than what’s offered by US airlines, as the lounges have complimentary cocktails, hot food, and a couple of them even have spas.

As of now Amex’s Centurion Lounge locations include DallasHong KongHoustonLas VegasMiamiNew York LaGuardiaPhiladelphiaSan Francisco, and Seattle.

American Express also plans to open Centurion Lounges in Los AngelesNew York JFKDenverCharlotte, and London Heathrow.

Earlier I wrote about how the Amex Centurion Lounge Miami will be closing for a couple of weeks starting January 14, 2019. This is to facilitate the expansion of the lounge, as they’re adding about 4,000 square feet to the space, and are also adding more food and beverage area, a wine bar, additional restrooms, an additional tranquility area, and more.

As it turns out, that won’t be the only Centurion Lounge closing next week.

The Amex Centurion Lounge Las Vegas will also be closing Monday, January 14, 2019. I’m told it will be closed for a “short period” as they “work to upgrade and improve the space.” I’m told that they’ll be sharing further updates about the lounge soon, so I look forward to hearing about what those are.

While these lounges being closed isn’t ideal, the fact that Amex is improving several of their lounges is great news.

In the meantime, those with the Amex Platinum can use their Priority Pass Select membership to access other lounges in the airport. Namely, The Club at Terminal 1 and The Club at Terminal 3 are the Priority Pass options at the airport. These lounges aren’t nice at all, but I guess they’re better than nothing.

Anyone have a better sense of what exactly is going on with the Centurion Lounge Las Vegas?

  1. Not sure what is going on, but the lounge is perpetually overcrowded (as are most lounges these days)

  2. Wow I’ve always been granted entry on arrival. Could be an overcrowding issue with CES in town?

    This is one of my favorite Centurion Lounges. I’d put it ahead of IAH, DFW and just bashing SFO.

  3. Centurion sticking to departure only. Signs out front of DFW – “The Centurion Lounge is a day of departure lounge.”

    I was denied entry with an overnight stay at the Grand Hyatt DFW. I asked somebody if I could be their guest and got in that way. Then schlepped over to The Club to check out the new mediocre digs.

  4. Just booked a Southwest itinerary in a couple of weeks and my connecting options were PHX and LAS and I chose LAS just because of the Centurion Lounge! Geeez!

  5. They need more room. I wish I could share a pic I took of the line this afternoon that wound out the door! Brutal.

  6. It’s pretty clear, and Ben perhaps should address this in a post, that the Centurion lounge is out of control. I mean, wth, how many family members can a single card holder bring in? It’s utter chaos at times with 47 nieces and nephews under of the age of 5.
