On a recent trip to Seattle, I had the opportunity to check out the newest Delta lounge in Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, between Concourses A and B, the Seattle A/B club. This lounge opened last October and we covered the details, Delta Opens Newest Sky Club at Seattle Tacoma.
Lounge Review: Delta Sky Club Seattle
We approached the lounge and once inside were immediately impressed with the ambiance of the space. We didn’t have very much time here but, throughly enjoyed the amenities, food, beverages and space. Here is my experience.
The entrance is right next to the Seattle TapRoom restaurant, between Concourses A and B.
This lounge has high ceilings and plenty of space to spread out and enjoy. There was plenty of seating. While I was there the lounge was busy but, it still felt like we had our option of several different types of seating.
The Bar space
The in-club spa looked fancy but, I didn’t try it.
The food options were numerous. When I was there, they were just changing over from breakfast to lunch. This was nice because it only took them 5 minutes to put out the food and when they did it was all very fresh with full platters!
There was a full salad bar with several types of salad including a cold chicken and rice curry. I chose the cucumber, tomato, mozzarella which was excellent. For hot items, there was plenty to try. They had 2 soup stations open today. One vegetable stew and the other was the clam chowder. Of course they had all the toppings to go with your soup that you could want. Another highlight was mini BLT sandwiches which went very well with the soup and salad if you wanted a little more filling option. Lastly, there was also a penne with marinara sauce which was also quite good. I was a little disappointed not to find their Beecher’s “World’s Best” Mac & Cheese which the Delta press release had mentioned.
My lunch, a bowl of clam chowder with soup crackers (delicious!) A glass of Sauvignon Blanc and some delicious chips (homemade) as an appetizer.
It was very cloudy when I was there and you definitely couldn’t see Mount Rainier but, if it hadn’t been cloudy this seat would have had an amazing view!
How To Get Access
There are many credit cards which provide access to the Delta Sky Clubs including the new one at Seattle. As reminder both the American Express Platinum Card as well as the Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN provide complimentary SkyClub access.
When it comes to Delta co-branded credit cards, the Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express provides complimentary Sky Club access, where the Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card and the Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express offer Sky Club access at a reduced $29 per person charge.
It helps that this lounge is still fairly new. I found it to be one of the finest domestic lounges that I have been to. The food was excellent, the space comfortable and if I had a long lay over in Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, I would be thrilled to spend my time here. I just hope that they keep up with the high level that they seem to be operating at right now and keep up with the maintenance items to keep this lounge fresh and enjoyable! Definitely check this out next time you fly through!
