The Amex Centurion Lounge Seattle at SeaTac is set to open sometime this summer. It is actually a scaled back Lounge, technically called a Studio. Amex Platinum card holders will have free access to the Studio
while other Amex cardholders (non-Platinum) will be able to enter the Studio for a fee.
UPDATE: An astute reader alerted me that for Studio locations ONLY those with Platinum or Centurion cards may enter (and may bring in family or one guest). While at the standard Centurion Lounge other Amex card holders may purchase a day pass, day passes are not available at the Studio.
UPDATE x2: The new Studio is now open! The first day of operation is June 30, 2015. If you go, please send me some photos and I’ll update this article. info at singleflyer dot com
I was recently at SeaTac on my way back from Long Beach, CA and decided to check out how the construction is going.
Located across from Gate B3 and next to the McDonalds, there are construction walls up. A quick peek through a hole in the construction wall shows that there isn’t much completed yet.
The good news is that the liquor license has been applied for, so whenever the Studio does open, there will be booze.
Many travel folks rave about Centurion lounges; I have yet to try one out to be honest. But with this in my own backyard, I will likely be checking it out soon. Here is hoping that Amex offers a good sign up bonus on their Platinum card soon!
