American Express Centurion Lounge Phoenix (PHX) Review

Our site may contain affiliate links. Read Advertiser Disclosure policy here.


One of the newer Centurion Lounges is the one at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport which opened early last year. The lounge is located in Terminal 4 across from Gate B22 on the upper level, which is in the American Airlines concourse. If you’re flying Southwest Airlines, you can also access without having to exit security.

The lounge is currently open daily from 9am-5pm, it’s unclear if the hours will be extended as flights resume.

Both cardholders of the Platinum Card® from American Express, and The Business Platinum Card® from American Express are able to access the lounge and can bring in two guests with them each time. You can view more about the Amex Global Lounge Collection Overview for Platinum Cardholders.

Despite only opening a year ago, the lounge isn’t that large and didn’t seem that remarkable compared to other Centurion lounges in the system.

Bottom Line

Having been to many of the Centurion Lounges across the system, this lounge was one of the smaller ones I’ve been to. There was no standout features that really made this feel special in any sort of way. If you are flying out of Phoenix and have a few minutes to spare you could stop in for a drink or snack, but I wouldn’t recommend arriving early specifically to spend time in this lounge.

Additionally when I arrived, at first I wasn’t allowed to enter as the lounge was at capacity, so the agent took down my number and then I received a text about 25 minutes later that I was able to enter. When I finally entered the lounge there were a few people in it, so I was surprised I wasn’t allowed in initially.

We’ve had the opportunity to stop by a few of the Centurion Lounges including:
