The Escape Lounge at Minneapolis – St. Paul International Airport is located on the Mezzanine Level, above the entrance to Concourse E, airside, right after the security checkpoint and 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.

For the most part, the lounge was quite empty. Perhaps, it being relativity new many people haven’t found out about it.

Lastly, there was a small buffet with some cold items, salads, and even some sliders.

How To Get Access:

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 or by paying the $45 entry fee to this lounge at the door, or $40 in advance online.

Overall this is a nice lounge option for Priority Pass members, in MSP, regardless of  if you’re flying Delta or not. If you’re not a SkyClub member or don’t have access to the clubs, I’d recommend then stopping by the Escape Lounge at MSP.

  1. Discovered it last month while attending a conference. I liked it so much I chose my stopover at MSP for an October flight from Vegas to NY, rather than Atlanta. A very clean environment

  2. CITI Prestige also has PP Select as well. Looking forward to trying this the next time I go through MSP
