We talked quite a bit about the benefits of the American Express Platinum Card including that of accelerated hotel status, $400 travel credit and $400 hotel credit, free stays at St Regis or W Hotel Sentosa and Banyan Tree Resorts.
It also offers complimentary access to more than 1,200 airport lounges in 130 countries for you, your Supplementary Member and one guest each. And we shared about the AMEX Centurion lounges all over the world. I visited the one in Hong Kong Airport.
Recently I visited the one at the Seattle Sea-Tec Airport.
Getting to the AMEX CENTURION lounge at Seattle Airport
The AMEX CENTURION lounge at Seattle Sea-Tac Airport is located at Concourse B (or Gate B). It is located opposite Gate B3.
Traveller Tip for SQ business class flyers with AMEX platinum card. Now if you are flying from Seattle to Singapore via the non stop direct SQ flight SQ27 (after the inbound SQ28 from Singapore to Seattle), then you will want to take note of two things.
Tip 1 : Assuming you don’t have TSA precheck (if you do, eg as part of Global Entry, take note that there is a TSA pre-check only security clearance near to the SQ counter. Use that), then you will be wanting to use the “Premium” line at the security checkpoint. It will save you a lot of time. A lot.
Tip 2 : You can visit the AMEX Centurion lounge at Seattle Airport as it is in the same train loop as the gate that is for SQ. The lounge is in Gate B. SQ takes off from Gate S. You will WANT to visit the AMEX Centurion lounge as even though it is small, it is way better than the “Club at SEA” which is the lounge at Gate S for SQ business class. Way way way better.
After clearing the famous USA security, take the train to Gate B.
Walk to Gate B3 and you can see the AMEX Centurion lounge.
AMEX CENTURION lounge at Sea-Tac
Compared to the one at Hong Kong, this is a little smaller. But still, it has good food (relatively speaking, and much better food than the SQ partner lounge) and also the usual cheerful atmosphere and also, of course, the famous bar.
Seatings at Lounge
There are relatively enough seats around when I visited at 7:30am for my flight to Singapore.
Reserved for Centurion Card holders
Or you can sit by the glass windows with a view of the airplanes
From the window, you can see the upcoming Sea-Tac Airport suspended bridge.
Food at the Lounge
There are a variety of food but they are more Western than Asian. Still it is much better than the SQ partner lounge. So take your breakfast here before going to the Gate S.

This lounge serves as a good start to the long 16 hours flight back from Seattle to Singapore. Remember you can get access to this lounge by means of the American Express Platinum Card.
