How to Travel with Class #TheCenturionLounge

“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for American Express. I received thank you item for my participation. “

Traveling is stressful to all of us.  We have to pack, choose the right shoes for multiple days, and of course deal with the dreaded layover.

Car service should just be how you travel...even to the grocery store. #ClassyBlackGirl #CarService

Well...the New Layover is hosted by American Express in #TheCenturionLounge  I was fortunate to check it out as it was opening at the San Francisco International Airport...and I took a Black Car to make the experience complete!

Okay this place is beautiful!! #TheCenturionLounge @AmericanExpress

Tucked away in a classy and elegant lounge right after going through check-in (you know where they make you take your shoes off) this exclusive lounge caters to the whole traveler.


One side of the lounge offers good food, a full wine bar

AND a place to kick your heels up and rest!

The other side is an awesome place for children to relax, enjoy entertainment for them and you can check your email (or write a blog post) all while keeping them in eye shot!  

There is also an awesome staff to answer any of your travel or personal questions! ....and store your larger belongings or carryons.

I had so much fun visiting and checking out the lounge!  I wish that I was actually traveling somewhere!

I also really loved the relaxing areas where private phone conversations or even a quick nap could take place...and the hot food, made to order if necessary is a lifesaver when traveling! 

And where there is traveling...there MUST be coffee and tea...yep, those are COFFEE BEANS for Fresh Ground Coffee!!

It as if American Express thought of everything that makes travel really frustrating and then made it really liveable and peasant. 

Gone are the days where you sit in the airport between layovers and wipe down everything for cleanliness and look for a plug just to connect...traveling Upscale and with Class is FINALLY here at SFO!
