American Express Centurion Lounges In Miami & Las Vegas Are Closing Several Weeks For Renovation Works From Monday, 14th January 2019

1 Comment

The American Express Centurion Lounges at Miami & Las Vegas will be closing for several weeks starting this coming Monday, 14th January 2019.

The exact date when these clubs will reopen hasn’t been published on the Amex website yet but apparently the reason for the closure is “upgrading and expansion”.

While the lounge representatives in Las Vegas told me that the renovation would last 1-2 weeks (who knows if that’s actually the case or not) the Miami club will last several weeks as apparently a major overhaul of the lounge and expansion of the entire space will be done.

You can access the reference page for American Express Centurion Lounge in Miami here.

The notice on the Amex website reads:

Beginning January 14th, 2019, The Centurion Lounge at Miami International Airport will be temporarily closed for a short period as we work to upgrade and expand the space. Please visit one of our partner lounges including Delta Sky Club® when flying Delta, or a Priority Pass™ Select lounge once enrolled.

In Miami the Centurion Lounge is located in Concourse D, near Gate D12. It is accessible via the SkyTrain within the D Concourse. If you are coming from another terminal, you must re-enter through security with either a connecting or onward boarding pass.

Alternatively there is a Priority Pass restaurant available at the D gates, the Corona Beach House which offers a US$30 F&B credit per person. This might be a decent option if you frequent that particular gate area.

The notice pertaining to the Las Vegas Club reads:

Beginning January 14th, 2019, The Las Vegas Centurion Lounge will be temporarily closed for a short period as we renovate and improve the space.

There is a Priority Pass Option “The Club at LAS” at Terminal 1 & Terminal 3 as well as a United Club at the D Gates not too far from the Amex Centurion Lounge.


I have previously written about the extremely crowded Centurion lounges and what Amex should about that so I can’t knock them for at least trying to expand the space but I certainly hope the closure will be quick and efficient because Miami is terrible if you don’t have the lounge access there. It seems Las Vegas will be a quick affair though not sure how much improvements can be done in a short period of time.

Delta fliers can at least avail themselves to the SkyClub but other than that… Priority Pass isn’t much to write home about even though the $30 credit are night and certainly enough for a quick snack and drink.
