AMEX Centurion Lounge SFO
During my Thanksgiving travels I was able to check out the new Centurion Lounge which opened a few weeks ago at SFO Terminal 3 (United). I was flying Delta out of Terminal 1 but you are able to get into Terminal 3 as long as you have a boarding pass for any SFO departure. Using TSA PreCheck makes it less of an inconvience to change between terminals as they don’t have post-security connectors at SFO. You must go through security again if you change terminals. Upon entering near Gate 74, I instantly noticed the entrance for the lounge. It was very modern and had a living wall inside. The front desk and lounge was located upstairs. Checking in was painless and was billed $50 for the visit as I don’t have an AMEX Platinum or Centurion card at the moment. The entrance fee was worth it since I was grabbing dinner and drinks. I had 2 hours to burn so this was a perfect place. It was fairly busy but it was during the holidays so it was as expected. The self serve wine tasting, gourmet food, comfy chairs and a full bar makes it a top domestic lounge. It’s nice to have a Centurion Lounge at my home airport as the one in Las Vegas spoiled me. Try it out next time you fly out of SFO!
