The “Amex Centurion Experience” across all of their domestic USA lounges is basically the same. The only real difference is whether the club has a spa or not. During COVID they have been closed down (well, that is, closed as far as having a therapist to give you a treatment of some kind).
The Mexico City Amex Centurion club in T2 (full review here) has been a bit of an odd duck and I have visited it any number of times flying Delta and AeroMexico. I say “odd duck” because, in the past, you had a different experience depending on which card you held: the consumer/personal The Platinum Card® from American Express or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express.
I currently only hold the business flavor of the card and that meant, in the past, I did not get a free meal or free spa time.
When I visited the club in January of this year (2022) I did get a free breakfast and later in the day “snack.” The breakfast was OK but the ham sandwich snack was cold inside and toasted outside – not the best. The spa side of the club only allowed pedicures. Because I hold the The Business Platinum Card® from American Express, I was charged for the treatment. The massage side of the spa remained COVID closed.
But things changed big time when I returned to the Mexico City Centurion Lounge in May: none of the food choices were complimentary. Everything carried a charge. (You can see the full daily menu here on Amex’s website).
That said, the prices are reasonable and the quality was quite good paired with drinks that are still complimentary.
Another big plus: the spa was open again and I was able to get a 15 minute massage free (well, I got two because no one was on the list at all). There is no charge at all as a business Platinum card holder compared to what was before a minimal fee of a few hundred pesos.
From what I have been reading, Amex really wants to harmonize the offerings at all the Centurion clubs worldwide. Given the mess COVID has created I think it will take some time to accomplish. But until then, I am once again impressed with the Mexico City MEX T2 club. – René
