Inside the Luxurious, Expanded Centurion Lounge at Seattle-Tacoma International.

For discerning jet-setters seeking the ultimate in comfort, luxury, and local flavor at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), American Express has inaugurated a remarkable 14,000 square foot Centurion Lounge that is set to transform your pre-flight experience.

The Centurion Lounge has nearly tripled in size from its original outpost. This grand expansion not only offers spectacular views of the bustling airfield and the iconic Olympic mountains but also houses a myriad of distinctive features crafted to delight your senses.

Location and Entry to the Lounge

Situated on the newly constructed mezzanine level of the Central Terminal at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the Centurion Lounge’s prime location promises easy accessibility. Whether you’re flying out from Seattle or in transit, the lounge can be found post-security, offering an idyllic view of the busy airfield and the distant Olympic mountains. Open daily from 5 AM to 10 PM, access is available to holders of select American Express cards, including the AmEx Platinum Card and the Delta SkyMiles Reserve Card (you must be flying Delta the day that you enter the lounge).


Immersing yourself in the elegant design of the lounge, you’ll be greeted by the distinctive blend of comfort, luxury, and functionality. Each corner of the lounge tells a tale of careful design, from the expanded seating areas overlooking the airfield to Harold Caudio’s 40 square foot coffee bean mural of the Seattle skyline. The layout is smartly divided into spaces for relaxation, work, and dining, offering enough versatility to meet the varying needs of the travelers.

Culinary Experience

Spearheading the culinary scene at the Centurion Lounge is Executive Chef Kristi Brown, whose locally-inspired “Seattle Soul” cuisine harmoniously melds soul food traditions with flavors from across the globe. Awaiting you is an array of enticing dishes from Trinidadian Spiced Pork Belly to “Peach Cobbla” French Toast, all prepared with fresh local ingredients.

Drinks and Coffee Culture

Honoring Seattle’s vibrant coffee scene, the lounge unveils “Blue Roast by American Express,” its first full-service coffee bar. Partnering with local roaster Caffè Umbria, the lounge offers an array of specialty coffee, espresso drinks, and cold brew served by on-staff baristas. The drink offerings extend beyond coffee, with wellness-themed café menu featuring healthy bites, made-to-order fruit smoothies, and kombucha on tap.

Services and Amenities

Frequent travelers will appreciate the expanded services, including private phone rooms, more restrooms, and noise-buffering workspaces for a serene working environment. In addition to these enhancements, guests can enjoy signature Centurion Lounge Network amenities such as complimentary cocktails and access to high-speed Wi-Fi. With the integration of such thoughtful services, the lounge strikes a perfect balance between comfort, convenience, and luxury.

The Centurion Lounge at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, with its unique blend of space, comfort, and a pinch of Seattle’s local flavor, is set to revolutionize your travel experience.
