Hotels in Las Vegas are strict with their checkout times unless you have elite hotel status or are willing to pay big bucks for a late checkout. Here’s how you can sleep in a little longer, avoid paying a day rate, and freshen up and shower at the airport.
There are only two places that have showers at the Las Vegas Airport. Not only can you clean up, but you can enjoy free drinks and snacks at the Centurion Lounge and at The CLUB.
The Centurion Lounge
Located in Concourse D after security, the Amex Centurion Lounge is open daily from 5 am to 11 pm.
As a Centurion Lounge guest you get:
Free food (breakfast, lunch, and dinner from 6 am to 10 pm)
- Open bar (10:30 am to 10:30 pm)
- Free high-speed Wi-Fi
- Access to a printer, copier, and fax
- Conference space use
There’s one shower at the Amex Centurion Lounge in Las Vegas so be sure to ask for a shower immediately when you arrive. Toiletries in your checked bag? No problem, complimentary toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, and body wash) along with towels are provided. There’s even a heated towel warmer.
Getting Into The Centurion Lounge
You can get into the Centurion Lounge for free if you have a valid boarding pass for a flight that day and one of these American Express cards:
- American Express Platinum card
- American Express Business Platinum card
- American Express Corporate Platinum card
- American Express Centurion card
And if you’re a Platinum American Express and Centurion cardholders, you can invite two guests or your immediate family to join you in the lounge.
Don’t have a Platinum or Centurion card? You can buy a day pass for $50, if you have another American Express card and a valid same day boarding pass. However, single day passes are limited to entry for you and your children under 18, adult guests are not permitted.
If you don’t have a Mastercard or $50 day pass is too rich for your blood (that long weekend in Vegas at the tables or slots took a toll on your wallet), consider paying a visit to the CLUB at LAS in Terminal 3. The CLUB at LAS in Terminal 3 is open everyday from 8 am to 12 am.
At The CLUB at LAS you get:
- Free drinks and snacks
- Free beer, wine, and premium spirits
- Free high speed Wi-Fi
- Access to a fax and printer
If you’re a Lounge Club member, you will pay $27 per person for each visit. That includes your partner. (Yep, no free guests at The CLUB.) Non-members can purchase a single-use day pass for $35 per person.
And like the Centurion Lounge, you need a valid same-day boarding pass.
Would you rather spend $35 or $50 for access to an airport lounge that includes free drinks, snacks, Wi-Fi, and has a shower instead of paying for late checkout at a Las Vegas hotel?
