Sacramento Airport To Get 2 Escape Lounges

As reported by The Sacramento Bee,

That includes two “common use” lounges, called Escape Lounge, one in each terminal.

They will be available to passengers on any airline to get away from the crowds in a more relaxed setting where the price of entry includes business accommodations and meals cooked by local chefs. The current online booking price at the nearest Escape Lounge, at Oakland airport, is $44 per person, which includes food.

The redo is expected to begin in February. Work will last about three months.

The airport, meanwhile, has refocused its efforts to land a developer to build an airport hotel, replacing the former on-site hotel that was torn down in 2008 to make room for the new Terminal B.

  1. Oh, the Sacramento Airport bureaucrats and their never ending soap opera to land an airport hotel. What a bunch of buffoons.

  2. Great news, they can really use one as the lines for Peets coffee were about 20 deep last week. Hopefully they will open up to PP soon and not just Amex. Note that Groupons are regularly available for $27, nobody pays the rack rate for these lounges.
