In November of last year, American Express announced they would be opening a new Centurion Studio at Seattle Airport some time this year. The Centurion Studio will be a smaller version of the Centurion Lounge and will enable AMEX to build more lounges since the Studio will require less room than a full Lounge. AMEX Centurion Lounges are among the best lounges in the U.S. and personally I’m super excited that there will be AMEX presence at my ‘home’ airport here in Seattle.

Initially when AMEX announced they would be opening a new Centurion Studio in Seattle, no additional details were announced except the fact that it would open in 2015. Well, I’ve just gotten off of the phone with American Express and found out the following information:

  • Expected Opening Date: Late Summer 2015 (around August/September)
  • Hours of Operation: 05:00 – 22:00
  • Location: By gate B3

I’ve also inquired about access to the lounge and an AMEX representative confirmed Platinum and Centurion cardholders will receive complimentary access and that they can bring their immediate family or two guests into the lounge. There was some speculation about whether or not AMEX would allow guests since the lounge will presumably be smaller, and it is now confirmed guests will be allowed.

Looking at the Seattle Airport Concourse B map, I’ve outlined roughly where the lounge will be:

Currently in the U.S. there are AMEX Centurion Lounges in San Francisco, Dallas, New York (LGA) and Las Vegas. A full lounge is set to open in Miami this year.
