Since Jan. 14, the American Express Centurion Lounge in Las Vegas has been closed for renovations. American Express has announced that it has reopened Thursday.

The Miami Centurion lounge has also been closed since Jan. 14 for a 4,000-square-foot expansion and is expected to be reopened on Monday, Jan. 28. Amex will also close Seattle’s Centurion Lounge for upgrades during a “short period” in March.

An American Express spokesperson told TPG that there no major renovations to the lounge, just simple cosmetic updates. A Doctor of Credit commenter reports that they have just updated the reception area. Loyalty Lobby reports a visitor didn’t notice anything different than before.

The Amex spokesperson did reiterate that it just made Kim Canteenwalla the Executive Chef of its Centurion Lounge at Las Vegas. Canteenwalla is co-founder of Blau + Associates, which features popular Las Vegas restaurants Honey Salt and Andiron Steak and Sea.

As Centurion Lounges have become more and more popular due to their superiority over many other legacy airline’s domestic lounges, Amex has dealt with waves of overcrowding, so much so that Amex has started limiting entry to passengers who arrive too early for a flight and recently banned travelers from entering the lounge after arriving at an airport that’s their final destination.
