I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for The Centurion Lounge. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
As a frequent traveler, I’m always looking for ways to make traveling more comfortable. I love leaving out of SFO (San Francisco) because there’s a great yoga lounge where I can stretch out and get centered before long flights (and ALL flights from the West Coast seem to be long flights!). Now, thanks to American Express, there’s another perk for travelers who understand the benefit of great amenities. The Centurion Lounge opened on November 6th at the San Francisco International Airport in Terminal 3, and I was fortunate enough to go check it out thanks to Mom Central.
I knew I was in for a treat when I was picked up by a shiny Black Mercedes and dropped off at Terminal 3 to meet smiling reps from American Express. A short walk through security, and I was right at the Centurion Lounge. Even the lobby with its lush wooden walls and glass elevator was luxurious. Once upstairs into the lounge, I was greeted by a wall of wine (yes, honey!), a lovely buffet, and a full bar. As I explored more, I discovered a sound proof family room that’s perfect for folks traveling with little ones, a business center, and lots of opportunity to kick back, relax and catch up on some emails.
The American Express Centurion Lounge at SFO is one of 4 across the country. The others are located at DFW, LGA, and LAS. Miami will be getting a Centurion Lounge soon as well! The cool thing about the lounges is that they are all representative of their locations. For example, the SFO Centurion Lounge is decorated with beautiful pictures showing life in the Northern California, as well as features (from American Express:)
Napa Valley inspired, seasonal cuisine curated by Christopher Kostow, chef at The Restaurant at Meadowood, as well as signature cocktails by renowned mixologist Jim Meehan. A unique wine tasting area powered by Wine Emotion allows guests to sample different pours from Napa Valley, chosen by wine director Anthony Giglio.
The American Express Centurion Lounge is complimentary for consumer, Business and Corporate Platinum Card and Centurion® Members, and their immediate family or up to two travel companions. Other American Express Credit and Charge Card Members may purchase a one-day pass at The Centurion Lounge for $50. After visiting, I’d absolutely checking it out. Travel is good. Relaxed travel is better. Travel after visiting the Centurion Lounge? I think that’s probably the best!
