Prior to my flight to Buenos Aires Argentina, I had some free time at Miami International Airport. I heard many great things about the Centurion Lounge at MIA so as an AMEX Platinum card holder, I figured I might as well give it a visit.
This lounge can be found on the fourth floor of the north terminal near gate D12. If you have been to the Centurion Lounge in Dallas, this one offers some of the same services and amenities. It’s roomy and there is plenty of space available. First thing I did (like I do at every lounge), I surveyed the food offerings. Since there were many people in front of me and behind me, I didn’t want to act like a first timer and take pics (I’m really sorry). But the offerings were lamb, Indian style chickpeas or chole, salad, brown rice, and apple crumble for the dessert. I sampled everything but the lamb and found everything to be delicious. Again, I wish I took pictures and perhaps next time I won’t care whether people are around me. The espresso machine had various offerings such as latte, cappuccino, espresso, etc.
If you are more of a tea person, they had you covered as well
As I mentioned above, there is plenty of seating available. Many of them give you access to USB and plug outlets. The cushioned seats are very comfortable if you need to stay there for a few hours.
If you want to sit near a window and airplane watch, plenty of room for that as well.
Shower availability is really convenient for those who have arrived from a far away destination and want to freshen up before a connection onward.
You can even get a manicure and pedicure done in the lounge
I love the family room aspect of the lounge. Keeps the kids busy while the adults can adult. I wish more lounges would do this.
This was my one major issue with this lounge. The internet speed is unacceptable for a brand that touts itself as business friendly. Those are some dial-up caliber speeds that I encountered and in my two hours spent at the lounge, the speed only got worse.
Overall, I’d rate this lounge a 4/5. It has just about all the comfort, food offerings, and amenities you would need in a lounge. It gets knocked down a point due to poor WiFi connectivity. If that issue is addressed, this lounge would be a perfect 5. Fix it American Express!
