About a month ago I wrote about American Express’ intentions to open a Centurion Lounge in Miami. American Express presently has two of these lounges in the US, in Las Vegas and Dallas/Ft. Worth. They’re absolutely stunning lounges and in a different league than any lounges run by US airlines.
It’s not surprising that they’re trying to expand their network of lounges, as American Express Platinum/Centurion cardmembers lost access to American Airlines Admirals Clubs and US Airways Clubs as of March 22, 2014.
While American Express’ intentions to build this lounge seemed pretty solid last month, I’ve received official confirmation today that the Centurion Lounge Miami will open by the end of 2014.
Here are the details they’ve shared:
- American Express will open an approximately 8000 square foot Centurion Lounge at Miami International Airport.
- Located in the North Terminal, the Lounge will feature locally-inspired cuisine and cocktails from award-winning talent, a spa with complimentary treatments and a family room.
- Additionally, Card Members will enjoy access to high-speed Wi-Fi, personal computers and noise-buffering workspaces.
- More details on the culinary team and specific menu offerings will be available closer to the opening of the Lounge.
- The Centurion Lounge in Miami joins a network of Lounges in key airports across the country, including LAS, DFW, LGA (opening summer 2014), and SFO (opening late 2014)
And here’s a quote from American Express:
“We’re thrilled to bring The Centurion Lounge experience to Miami International Airport, a critical hub for domestic travelers as well as the nation’s largest gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean,” said Lisa Durocher, SVP of Charge Cards and Benefits, American Express. “Barring unforeseen construction circumstances, we are aiming to open the new Lounge in Miami by the end of 2014, which will give our Card Members a new location to enjoy premium service and amenities, helping them relax, recharge and reboot during their travels.”
I can’t wait to use this lounge when flying American domestically!
