I finally had the opportunity to visit the American Express Centurion Lounge at LaGuardia Airport. All of the journalists and bloggers seemed to be praising the Centurion Lounges (presently at Dallas, La Guardia and Las Vegas Airports, with more planned) and I wanted to know what all of the hoopla was about. Frankly, this all came about at the same time that I was losing faith in airport lounges, particularly those of domestic airlines in the United States. So, I decided to check out the Centurion lounge at LGA before a morning flight. To my surprise, I really liked it. I was impressed: The food was freshly prepared and the location was attractive – even the employees were warm and welcoming! And Won’t Run aka Mr. Techie wasn’t complaining either, as he was able to charge all of his devices without searching for outlets. Hallelujah to Won’t Run not complaining!
I note that the Centurion Lounge is located in Terminal B. We were flying on Delta that morning, from Terminal C/D. It was an easy five or ten minute walk between terminals.
I told myself I wouldn’t take photos of yet another airport lounge, but this lounge really is a cut above the rest, so I’m sharing.
Both Centurion and Platinum American Express cardholders receive free access to Centurion Lounges (along with up to two guests). Other American Express cardholders may use the Lounge for $50. I have the Platinum Card, which is expensive, but has many perks, such as this.
