American Express Centurion Lounges Guide

American Express Centurion Lounges are an amazing perk of several of their premium credit cards. 

Centurion Lounges are far superior to other airport lounges such as the Admirals ClubUnited Club, and Delta SkyClub, since Centurion Lounges offer complimentary premium food and drinks inspired by local chefs and mixologists. 

Plus, many Centurion Lounges have shower suites, family rooms, and a few lounges offer free massages or spa treatments. 

This guide will detail all of the Centurion Lounge locations, how to access the lounges, guest policy, and other international American Express lounges.
