Lounges Of Las Vegas – Review Of Centurion Lounge And Club At Las

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

Mrs. Weekly Flyer was lucky enough to take a tour the new Centurion lounge in Las Vegas today. It’s located in Concourse D near gate D 4. You’ll see a bright blue door that is unmarked until you walk in….Secretive!

Centurion American Express Club

The Centurion American Express Club only opened a few days ago her impressions were that the lounge is very nice and by far the best lounge in Las Vegas.

Amenities of this club lounge include:

  • $50 entrance
  • Full breakfast
  • Showers
  • Full kids play room
  • Offices for meetings
  • Renown chef inspired
  • Only “centurion” members get in free right now
  • Full FAQ on the lounge

Unfortunately, the lounge is so secretive, Mrs. Weekly Flyer wasn’t able to snap any inside pictures. So you’ll have to visit this one for yourself next time you find yourself in Las Vegas.

The Club At Las

I recently visited the Club At Las Lounge thanks to the 100,000 Platinum American Express offer I signed up for earlier this year. The lounge is a nice break from the Vegas airport slot machines. It’s a fine way to enjoy a snack, drink or catch up on some work before leaving Las Vegas. The amenities of this lounge include:

  • Telephones
  • Wi-fi Access
  • Work Stations / PCs
  • Internet / Dataports
  • Business Center *
  • Free Snacks and Drinks
  • Free Alcoholic Drinks
  • Newspapers / Magazines
  • TVs
  • Shower Facilities
  • Disabled Access

The entrance is in the D concourse behind the Fruits and Nuts stand to the left once you exit the escalators. There is another Club at Las located in Terminal 3 near gate E2, I only visited the lounge in the D concourse. 20130228-120326.jpg

The lounge has very modern and seemingly new furniture. The snack bar is located directly behind the entrance and included granola bars, humus, chips and a few other nick-nacks.

The bar is towards the window. There is a door to the right of the bar that leads to another seating area which was completely empty when I was in the lounge.

The drink menu was surprisingly good for a complimentary selection. The notable items that jumped out at me were the Domaine Ste. Michele Blanc Champagne, I can personal vouch for the taste of this Champagne, and the Johnnie Walker Black Label Scotch.

United Club Lounge

The United Club lounge is ironically right next to all of the Delta gates at gate D 33. I can’t specifically comment on this lounge because it doesn’t provide access to Priority Pass Select members.

Bottom Line

There are a few good lounge options in Vegas, the newest of which is the Centurion American Express Lounge. If you have a Centurion card, the new club lounge is a must visit.

Nothing better than a wide-body domestic flight back home after a long night in Vegas.

    Who has access to the centurion club? You say black card holders enter for free. You also make reference to a $50 entry fee. Does that mean anyone can enter?

    If you have an American Express card, you can pay the $50 and gain access. But if you have a Centurion card, the entrance fee is free.

    Note that showers are only available at the Terminal 3 Club, not at D Gates; note that Hawaiian Airlines First Class Passengers are invited in, no charge.

    My wife emailed me and told me she had a free pass to this lounge. She did not go with me on this trip, but we have the same credit card. My brother and I had a little extra time to spare so we thought we would check it out.

    My brother told the man working at the desk that we had complementary tickets to the lounge. The man ran my brother’s card and nothing showed up because he truly did not have the complementary pass. I mentioned something about an email from my wife, but the man kept saying, “It’s $50 and then it’s complementary.” I just thought it was another corporate scam where they say it is complementary to get you there and then turn the tables. I decided to leave after I heard it was $50. Before I left, I asked the man about how much it is to take a taxi to Harrah’s, and he said that I need to pay $50 to get that answer inside the lounge. I left angrily, saying, “I have a card.” He still didn’t ask for it.

    I went back to the lounge before we left to talk to the manager. Everyone was very nice this time. I was enraged to find out that I did have a “key” and two guest passes to the lounge. I still didn’t take the offer because it’s like inviting someone to your house, yelling at them, and then asking them to come back four days later. I don’t care how good the wine is or how many stuck-up rich people are in there. I have some pride.

    So, American Express managed to take what could have been a lifetime cardholder into their worst enemy.

    I ask you to read this review and think about why I was turned down and treated the way I was even though I had a key. I was wearing a white t-shirt and a trucker hat. I was also unshaven. My brother didn’t look much better.

    I wouldn’t pay $50 if I were you to go to this lounge. However, I would still take the free key if you have one.

    Oh, the power of the Internet…

    By the way, this true story was blocked on Yelp. I thought we had free market capitalism.

    Amex Platinum cardholders now also receive complimentary admission to Centurion Lounge. More locations coming too.
