Last week, I found myself in Toronto on another work trip, and decided to kill some extra time at the Plaza Premium Lounge Toronto located in Terminal 1, which is a Priority Pass lounge, meaning that’d I’d be able to access with my Priority Pass Select Membership, which is a benefit of my Platinum Card from American Express.
The lounge is located in Terminal 1 near Gate F82, it’s important to note that to use this lounge you must be departing for the US. If you’re on departing on a Canadian domestic or another country international flight, you’ll be in a different area and won’t be able to use this lounge.
The lounge has a nice entrance and is easy to find if you’re in the general area.
One nice thing about Plaza Premium Lounges is that even though they’re a Priority Pass Lounge, they also will accept your Platinum Card from American Express for entrance, which I found interesting, since most Priority Pass lounges will not.
There is a decent amount of seating, and most of the seats have charging power ports, so you can charge your phones or laptops before your flight.
The drink selection isn’t the largest by any means but there is beer, wine, and some premium liquor for you to make your own drinks, so props to the self-serve bar.
Below is a refrigerator where you’ll find juices, sodas and canned beers.
For lunch, they had two hot dishes, one was a thai sweet and spicy chicken, and the other was a noodle dish, both were tasty.
There were also a few computers in the lounge as well as high-speed wireless internet.
And the lounge did offer some decent views of the US departure gates.
The Plaza Premium Lounge was a nice lounge to spend about 45 minutes in before my flight back to the US, as I was able to have a drink, some food and use the internet, so if you’re flying through Toronto I’d recommend stopping in.
You can gain access to Priority Pass Select, which will get you lounge access here for free by being a cardholder of The Platinum Card® from American Express or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN.
