Seattle Amex Centurion Lounge Is Now Reopened
I wanted to give you a quick update that the Seattle Amex Centurion Lounge is now reopened. The lounge is located on the mezzanine level in the Central Terminal. It is accessible by taking the elevator or staircase located in the food court in the Central Terminal. The hours are daily from 5:00am – 10:00pm. Here are some photos of it, it looks awesome.
If you remember the old location closed for a few weeks last month:
Here is a statement from American Express about the temporary lounge closure:
As we get ready to open the new Centurion Lounge at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the current Centurion Lounge located in Concourse B will close at 7:00 p.m. on January 29 so we can complete the lounge relocation and construction. We look forward to welcoming eligible Card Members to our new lounge on the mezzanine level of the Central Terminal in the coming weeks. Card Members can use the Amex Mobile app or visit www.TheCenturionLounge.com for up-to-date information.
How Do You Get Centurion Lounge Access?
You can gain American Express Centurion lounge access as a cardholder perk of the American Express Platinum card, Amex Business Platinum card or the American Express Centurion card. You will no longer be able to bring 2 free guests once this lounge reopens though since that policy changes on February 1st. Only cardholders that spend $75,000 or more in a calendar year will still get the two free guests when they visit a lounge going forward.
The better workaround for guests (family members that travel often with you) is adding them as an authorized user. You can add up to 3 Platinum authorized users for $175 a year, or $58.33 per person. They would then get their own lounge access, with or without you. This perk does not extend to the no fee Gold authorized user cards you can add as well.
Seattle Amex Centurion Lounge Is Now Reopened: ToP Thoughts
If you had planned on hitting up the Centurion lounge on a trip then you are now in luck since the lounge is open once again and still has that new lounge smell. From what I hear this expansion was desperately needed in Seattle so it is good to see people have a lot more space and a new lounge to check out. Hopefully this change helps with overcrowding.
