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.
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.
