Last week, I was lucky enough to escape the cold Boston weather and head down to Belize! The trip was great, and on the way home we flew through Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. You know what that means…a stop for some great food and comfy chairs at the newly renovated Centurion Lounge!
Where to Find the Centurion Lounge DFW
Dallas/Fort Worth is a big airport! The Centurion Lounge is located in Terminal D, right by Gate D12. It isn’t hard to find, thanks to the big blue wall, a hallmark of the Centurion Lounges across the country.
When you walk in the entrance, you’ll keep walking straight ahead to the elevators, take them up one floor, and then check in.
Amenities at the Centurion Lounge DFW
The lounge is fairly large, weighing in at 12,500 square feet after the renovations. American Express has used the space creatively, turning what is essentially a long, wide hallway, into a lounge with ample room for seating, showers, conference space, buffet, and bar. The only time it really feels cramped is passing by each other in the narrow walkways, otherwise the Centurion lounge is spacious! Well, it ws at 6AM at least…
The DFW Centurion Lounge also boasted a few conference tables, and a private conference room down on the far right side of the lounge. The private room only had 4 chairs, but it’s nice if you need it!
You know, with AmEx sticking it to families, I found it ironic that the DFW Centurion Lounge also had a family room! Still, it’s useful for those of us with small families.
Besides the comfortable seating and ample space, the DFW Centurion Lounge also had 3 showers for use (or maybe 4, can’t quite remember), speedy WiFi, desktop computers, and printers for use.
Centurion Lounge DFW Food and Drink
We stayed at the Centurion Lounge from around 5:45AM to 7AM on a Friday morning, so we got to sample their breakfast menu. The lounge has an assortment of continental items in the morning (and I assume throughout the day) including fruit, yogurt, cornbread, scones, and blueberry bread. The hot breakfast was brought out at 6:30AM. Pancakes, sausages, an egg scramble and an egg frittata, and hot porridge were added to the spread.
All of my experiences at Centurion Lounges have been great so far. I’ve been to the Centurion Lounge at Philadelphia International, the Centurion Lounge at LaGuardia, and now the Dallas/Fort Worth Centurion Lounge! I know the common complaint is overcrowded Centurion Lounges…did I just get lucky? Or is the New and improved DFW Centurion Lounge finally big enough?
