After spending some time at the Amex Centurion lounge, I stopped by the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge at New York LaGuardia.  The Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge is located landside on the 3rd floor, Concourse A of the Central Terminal Building at LGA.  It is pretty close to the Amex Centurion lounge- same floor but separated by a long hallway.

My first impression of the Air Canada lounge was that it was not very well lit.  Personally, I like a dark lounge because it feels more private but I could see how it would be too dark for others.

The lounge was small but fortunately not very crowded during my visit.

As soon as you enter, you will find different types of seating, tables, a large TV and a large magazine rack.

The food station and bar are located in the corner of the lounge.

I was pretty full from lunch at the Centurion lounge so I did not sample much of the food.

Near the kitchen is a mini business center consisting of three desks (two of them with desktops) and a printer/copier.  Free wi-fi is available in the lounge with no password required.

Turn the corner after reaching the business center for more seating options.  This area is more private than the main sitting/tv area with signage declaring it a cell fee zone.

The staff was friendly.  The manager noticed I took some photos and asked me the reason.  She was nice about it and asked me to write down the name of my website.

Overall, I did not really have any complaints and found this to be an OK lounge. For Amex Platinum card holders though with a choice between this and the Amex Centurion Lounge at LGA, the Centurion lounge is the clear winner.
