One of the nice perks of having an Amex Platinum or Amex Centurion card is access to their amazing lounges. The DFW Centurion Lounge is one of the best lounges I’ve visited so far in the United States.
Located in Terminal D, it’s on the upper level. The layout of the lounge is slightly weird in that there are corridors and many different spaces. On the upside, it’s fairly large. When I was there, it wasn’t hard to get a seat.
I read online that I could get a massage, but unfortunately, by the time I got there (~6pm), their massages were booked out. Nevertheless, that left me about 2 hrs to enjoy the lounge before the flight to Sao Paolo.
First order of business? Showers. The front desk agent opened a shower stall for me, and I was told to just inform her when I was done. The shower stall was clean and spacious. They also stock L’Occitane amenities. I had a very refreshing shower.
One of my main gripes about US lounges is their limited food selection. If I’m lucky, there’s a sad sandwich. If not, I’d have to just eat snack mix. Beggars can’t be choosers, but beggars can still be whiners! 😀
Not the Amex Centurion Lounge.
The DFW Centurion Lounge served Tex-Mex at Dallas. I had some amazing beef brisket, fish, and tortilla chips. I wasn’t that hungry at that point, but I’d imagine this would be a satisfying dinner for most.
Most other domestic lounges also don’t provide overly exciting drinks. The DFW Centurion Lounge had quite a cool cocktail menu. I tried a White Mimosa, which was pretty strong.
I had a really pleasant 2 hr stay at the DFW Centurion Lounge. I can see why it’s a highlight for travellers with layovers.
