One of the best perks of The Platinum Card® from American Express and The Business Platinum® Card from American Express 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.

This month Amex closed a couple of their lounges temporarily. The Amex Centurion Lounges in both Miami and Las Vegas closed as of January 14, 2019.

In the case of the Miami lounge, this was to facilitate the expansion of the lounge, as they’re adding 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.

In the case of the Las Vegas lounge, they were just closing it for a “short period” to “work to upgrade and improve the space.”

Amex Centurion Lounge Las Vegas

There’s some good news on that front — the Amex Centurion Lounge Las Vegas has once again reopened, after a closure of just over a week. I don’t think they made any major changes, but rather just performed necessary maintenance and upkeep.

For now the Centurion Lounge Miami continues to be closed, though hopefully that will be reopened within a week or so. Frankly I’m impressed they’re able to perform such a major renovation in a quick period.

If anyone passes through the Centurion Lounge Las Vegas after it reopened, please report back with any changes you may have noticed.

  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.

  7. I was there on Monday. We were told it was the first day they reopened. I did not notice any differences.

  8. Hopefully they don’t have to have the temporary seating and tables out. Lounge was full of them when I visited the weekend after CES.

  9. @Sruart Amex fixed that, you are only allowed 2 guests now per card. That said, the LAS lounge is crazy busy on: Sunday’s and any day that is the last day of a conference where lots of folks are flying home – Vegas has lots of conferences so it tends to be full frequently.

  10. A few of the seating options have changed a little. Table and chairs next to the flight line windows in the back of the lounge are gone. However the lounge is basically unchanged. It’s about 80% full on 1/24 at noon

  11. We were there Monday at noon. Didn’t see any noticeable changes, and was just as crowded as ever. There was a line 15 deep out the door, and they were not admitting guests until they could seat them.
