American Express’ Seattle and Las Vegas Centurion lounges will soon close for renovation.

“The Seattle Centurion Lounge will be temporarily closed for a short period in March as we renovate and improve the space,” American Express’ website states.

“The Centurion Lounge at Las Vegas International Airport will be temporarily closed for a short period starting on January 14, 2019, as we work to upgrade and improve the space,” an American Express spokesperson said. “We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to reopening as soon as possible to continue to offer Platinum Card Members a place to relax, refresh and reboot when they travel through LAS.”

The Miami Centurion lounge is set to close on the same day this month for multiple weeks of construction — Amex is obviously serious about overhauling its airport lounges, which were already some of the best in the business. The Dallas Centurion was closed and reopened in a new location last September

Those with The Platinum Card® from American ExpressThe Business Platinum Card® from American Express or the Centurion Card get complimentary access to the eight Centurion lounges in the US and one in Hong Kong (HKG)

Fortunately, those cardholders also have access to Delta’s Seattle SkyClub (only when flying Delta) as well as a complimentary Priority Pass membership, which will get them and two guests access to two other private lounges in Seattle, The Club in Concourse A and The Club in South Satellite. The Club has two lounges at Las Vegas, also accessible through Priority Pass — although there’s no Delta SkyClub in the airport. Enrollment required for select benefits.

It’s unclear exactly what the renovations will entail, but the Seattle Centurion Lounge is one of the smaller locations, so it’d be great to see an expansion of the space (even though it was already made larger in 2016). Centurion Lounges have had a big problem with overcrowding recently, so much so that Amex has started limiting entry.

When the Dallas Centurion lounge was closed in August, it reopened in another larger location to accommodate more guests. Amex has said the same about the upcoming renovations of its Miami lounge, which will be “upgraded and expanded” once the work is over. However, it doesn’t appear that the Las Vegas lounge will be expanding its footprint.

TPG reached out to American Express for more information on the Seattle and Las Vegas changes, but further details were not provided.
