After checking in you’ll be greeted with immediate seating
To your left you’ll see a bar area – was closed as it was 7am when I arrived. I think Amex has done a great job segmenting the lounge with a wide variety of seating. Whether you’re family wanting semi-privacy or you’re looking to get some work done – they’ve got you covered.
There is a private room for children to play
Head on back and you’ll find the dining area.
Amex is known to curate their menus based on location. Since it was breakfast and I was in vegas I kinda of expected to find glow sticks and red bull, but I found a nice assortment of cold and hot dishes that catered to both meat and non meat eaters.
In back of the lounge you’ll find work stations and cubbies for privacy
Miles and I chose to sit along the windows
I visited this lounge a couple years ago and it has held up well. Last time it was crazily crowded and I only flashed in and out with barely any time on the ground, this time – I got to take a breath, have a coffee, enjoy some breakfast, and write this post in a very nice lounge with fast wifi.
