My favorite airline lounges in the United States are the American Express Centurion Lounges. The food and drinks are good and included, they have nice family rooms, one of them has a complimentary spa (DFW), and you can get in free with your Amex Platinum card. Currently there are two Centurion Lounges open in the United States, at DFW and McCarran in Las Vegas.
The only real problem with these lounges is that there isn’t more of them, but that is officially changing in the relatively near future. Much of this was already speculated or announced, but recently Amex confirmed that they plan to open an 8000 square foot Centurion Lounge at Miami International Airport in the North Terminal by the end of 2014.
This lounge will be the fifth Amex Centurion Lounge to open in the United States, along with the existing two, one in LGA that will open in summer 2014, and one at SFO will open in late 2014.
Perhaps best of all (at least to me) is that the Amex Centurion Lounge in Miami will offer complimentary spa treatments just like at DFW, and they will also have a family room. I hope that these are just the first five of many American Express Centurion Lounges at airports across the country, and I would like to put a personal vote in for Houston to be on the list of locations to get a lounge.
Having access to a nice airport lounge isn’t essential for travel, but it is a way to make things a bit nicer along the way. Where are you hoping to see more of these lounges in the future?
