One of my favorite travel perks is having access to the American Express Centurion Lounges which are operated by American Express. And it is great news when Amex decides to add a new lounge for cardholders of the Platinum Card® from American Express, or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN to benefit from!
In April, we told you about the rumored New Centurion Lounge Location in LAX. American Express has now confirmed the details of the the LAX Centurion Lounge.
Amex Centurion Lounge In LAX Details
- 13,900 square feet
- complementary food, wines and cocktails, workspaces, high-speed Wi-Fi, showers and power outlets.
- spa and a family room
- a “tranquility area”
Per the SFGate, The company announced this week that the LAX Centurion Lounge will be in the post-security portion of the Tom Bradley International Terminal but will also be accessible to travelers in Terminals 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 thanks to post-security connector corridors and tunnels that link the buildings. (Delta flyers will have access when a connector is built to its future Terminal 2-3 complex- more about that here.)
The lounge will be large, encompassing 13,900 square feet. It will include the standard Centurion Lounge features like complementary food, wines and cocktails, workspaces, high-speed Wi-Fi, showers and power outlets. (By comparison, the SFO Centurion Lounge is 8,200 square feet; at DFW, the lounge is 9,000 sq ft.) American Express has taken a lot of heat lately about lounge overcrowding, so it’s good to see it going big– for example, it’s new Denver lounge is expected to be 14,000 square feet.
The LAX Centurion Lounge will also have a spa and a family room for members traveling with kids.But it will also provide some amenities “inspired by Los Angeles,” a spokesperson said, like a “tranquility area” that offers “both brightly-lit and dimly-lit quiet areas to help global travelers adjust to new time zones.”
What Cards Can Get You Access?
Both cardholders of the Platinum Card® from American Express, and The Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN are able to access the lounge and can bring in two guests with them each time.
We’ve had the opportunity to stop by a few of the Centurion Lounges including:

Traveling can be a lot more fun if you have a fantastic lounge to hang out in with free food and beverage. I think that the Centurion Lounges are amazing and they keep adding more! If you want to gain access to them this year, consider picking up the Platinum Card® from American Express, or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN.
