Inside AmEx's New Centurion Lounge At Miami International Airport

Unless you're a glutton for awful food and screaming children, layovers are the absolute worst. However, if you're an American Express customer, they're becoming something to look forward to, thanks to the rollout of Centurion Lounges in airports around the country.

We took a look at the brand new luxe 8,000 square foot oasis at Miami International and, as with the previous four luxe lounges they've unveiled over the last couple years, we're pumped for our next connection through MIA.

The bright and airy private spread in the North Terminal's concourse D is stocked with a bounty of complimentary amenities that may help you forget that your flight's been delayed a solid four, oh wait, five...make that six hours now. 

Eats include a range of snacks and mouthwatering meals from James Beard-award winning chef Michelle Bernstein

The Miami-inspired cocktail menu was dreamed up by Jim Meehan, one of the country's most renowned mixologists.

Should you need to take care of some business between flights there's a dedicated work area with high-speed WiFi. Ready for a nap? Hit up one of the private nooks. You'll be spared any shrieking children too, thanks to the special soundproof kids play area.

You'll need to be at least a Platinum or Centurion cardholder (or travelling with someone who is) to access the lounge for free, though any AmEx customer willing to pony up $50 can secure a day pass, space permitting.
