I attended the New York Times Travel Show at the Javits Center in New York City this past weekend.
Outside the entry to the exhibition hall I noticed this:
Wow, there’s an American Express Lounge at the Javits Center! According to the Javits Center website:
The lounge is located on the 4E Terrace, above the south side of the Crystal Palace lobby. American Express OPEN is dedicated to helping small businesses do more business. That’s why we created the American Express OPEN® Business Lounge, a premium event amenity at the Javits Center. This state of the art lounge offers American Express OPEN Card Members, and onsite Card applicants, an opportunity to break from their busy schedules and enjoy free Wi-Fi, refreshments, computer and printer access, loaner device chargers and comfortable seating for productive meetings or pure relaxation. Business Owners who are not Card Members may apply for a Business Card from American Express OPEN with representatives at the business lounge and American Express OPEN kiosks throughout the Javits Center.
As it is a Business OPEN lounge, I was given access with my Amex Gold Business card. The lounge was long, over-looking the exhibition hall on one side, and the entrance to the Javits Center on the other. There was free wifi and coffee and tea, and water, as well as small bags of potato chips and peanuts. Here are some photos:
I kind of felt like I was in an airport…..
