Hey guys! Last week I flew out to Houston for work and took advantage of one of the biggest perks of my American Express Platinum card. Dallas and Houston house 2 of 7 nationwide Centurion lounges offering free manicures, massages, food, drinks and a million other things that make traveling that much more enjoyable. While Centurion doesn’t quite compare to First Class lounges, I’d say it’s definitely up there.
I was pretty impressed with both but spent more time in the Houston lounge. From open bars with renowned mixologists to world-class chefs, showers and private napping areas, the Centurion lounges were well equipped with just about everything I could have asked for to feel comfortable and satisfied. With hospitable employees who made sure I was well taken care of and high-speed wifi, I would highly recommend checking out the Centurion lounge at IAH.
The only downside to the Houston lounge is that it’s a little tough to find and closes at 9pm. The entrance is also somewhat hidden – there’s an elevator located down a hallway next to a duty free shop near gate D6.
I highly recommend checking out these lounges or other Centurion lounges if you can. If you’re not an American Express Platinum cardholder but are an AMEX card member, it costs $50 to get in, but if you’re in for a long layover, it’s totally worth it!
Check out some of the photos I snapped from the Houston Centurion lounge:
