A little bit more than a month ago, I wrote about the potential closure of Timberline Steaks and Grille at Denver International Airport. This was disputed by a Public Relations firm, in an email to me. This all seemed a bit odd because the airport spokesman stated that Timberline and two other restaurants were closing, not me. Now things are becoming a bit clearer. According to Business Insider, American Express applied for a Centurion Lounge lease at Denver International Airport.
This is great news for a couple of reasons: 1) The Centurion Lounge replaces Timberline Steaks and Grille, which would represent a huge upgrade 2) Timberline remains open and American Express Platinum Cardholders have access to two lounges.
Business Insider could not get an American Express spokesman to confirm the application for the lounge. She would only provide the following:
[American Express is] always looking at opportunities to bring our premium Centurion Lounges to more airports across the globe and are working closely with the Denver International Airport as this location is certainly of interest for both us and our card members.
As someone who has visited a third of the American Express Centurion Lounges (3), a lounge at Denver would give me another easy one to try since I travel there often. I searched the Denver City Council website and found that the city council approved the action two days ago. Whoohoo! I cannot wait to visit the new lounge, I hope it is not crowded.
