But there is a Centurion lounge so why not just go there if you happen to have:
Well one of the reasons is that it can be a little bit of a challenge to find how to get there.
All over the place you will find, as you see above, signs that tell you where it is because it is not that obvious to find like the other clubs talked about. You have to find the duty free shop and then walk along the back wall and then…
You will find the elevators to get one level down to the lounge. You can also get there from ground level going one floor up right after security, but most I would think will be taking the tram around from another concourse so the above directions are the ones that will matter to you.
After a long-ish corridor walk from the elevators you will find the entrance (at long last).
You will be greeted by friendly reps including a rep that used to work for Delta in both MKE and DFW and is one of the nicest reps I have ever worked with. Unfortunately he can no longer work on your Delta tickets, but such is life!
Across from the check-in desk is the iconic “living wall” that I think all of the Centurions still have and it really is a live plant wall. Neat right!
Just right of the entrance is a small seating area with a few tables. There is also a wall of papers and magazines for you to enjoy or take to your next flight.
There is no spa or other specialized feature with this club unlike MIA or DFW or SFO, but like the LAS club there is a kids room. Personally I would rather have seen a Spa!
Left of entrance is the main seating area for the club and really the bulk of the club. This is a rather small space with limited views (like almost none since all you would see is folks entering on the way to customs).
Also left of the entrance is a small refreshment stand with water and iced tea.
Continuing left we have another area with a long shared conference table as well as a single CPU workstation. Not very private but you do have it and a printer.
Also in this space is a small office room that they label as a phone room.
On the other side of the divider wall of this space are 3 lounging chairs that are really comfortable. I love these at the DFW lounge and the view from that lounge. On to the bar / food area.
The next big space is the large bar (where all drinks are complimentary) as well as the food service space. Compared to other lounges AMEX does offer, most times, a decent choice of real food choices.
I have found the salads, fruit and more always to be well stocked and fresh. Impressive considering the often packed nature of most Centurion clubs. They really do a good job in this regard and the wine selections are quite good.
I decided to assemble a BBQ sandwich with a nice Malbec on the side. No complaints here.
They do have, beyond the bar area, lavatories as well as one shower for you to use (just keep it short please).
Everything you could need is provided and the large shower head is always nice and may work against the sign telling you to hurry it up a bit. 😉
Bottom line I am always impressed with Centurion lounges and this one is no exception. It has what a quality club should have, but I really wish they had a SPA like some of the others or something to make it stand out more than just a kids room.
If you can find this club I think you will enjoy the visit. If you find it too crowded, try the Air France lounge as a back up option not far away. Have you visited this club? Did you enjoy your stay? – René
