After a short positioning flight from Vancouver on Air Canada, my wife Ashley and I arrived in Seattle with a few hours to kill before our flight to Istanbul.
Our flight departed from the S Concourse; however, the lounge options there were quite limited, and we opted to check out the newly renovated Centurion Lounge Seattle instead.
We’ve both had pleasant experiences with Centurion Lounges in the past, and we were hopeful to keep the streak going with this visit.
Centurion Lounge Seattle – Entry & Access
The Centurion Lounge at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is located in the Main Terminal. It’s open from 5am–10pm daily.
After making your way to the Main Terminal after security or from a connecting flight, you’ll arrive at a circular concourse with a variety of shops and a food court. The Centurion Lounge is located above the restaurants on the mezzanine level, which is on Level 6.
The glass elevator which takes you to the lounge is located just beside a row of restaurants. There’s also a staircase next to it, if you’re looking to get some extra steps in.
The lounge is quite easy to spot with the signature American Express greenery wall, and the glowing blue-and-white sign that adorns the entrance.
I enjoyed access with my Canadian issued Business Platinum Card from American Express. I was able to grant access to my wife as well, since Canadian-issued Platinum Cards aren’t subject to the guest restrictions present on the US-issued Platinum Cards.
You can access the Centurion Lounge Seattle with an American Express Platinum Card, Business Platinum Card from American Express, or American Express Centurion Card issued in any country. Furthermore, cardholders of the Delta SkyMiles Reserve and Delta SkyMiles Reserve Business American Express Cards enjoy entry to lounges in the US, UK, and Hong Kong prior to a Delta-operated flight.
Fortunately, there wasn’t much of a line when we arrived, which seems to be a persistent problem at other Centurion Lounges in the network.
Once I handed over my card and our boarding passes, we headed inside for a few hours to relax before our flight to Istanbul.
