It is rather easy to miss the entrance to this Delta Sky Club because it is immediately to the left as you exit security screening.
If you are walking below you have missed the elevators up one floor or the stairs that seem to EXIT you out of the airport.
You can get in with a number of AMEX cards or, if you are a Skyteam elite plus status and are on a coach or anyone on a business class international departing (or connecting) ticket, you can also get in free.
The club is open Sunday through Friday from 5:AM to 8:PM and closes an hour earlier on Saturday.
The reps were super friendly and there is only one desk to assist with both check-in and flight issues.
Across from check-in you have a number of papers to enjoy in the club or on your way out.
Despite the smallish footprint of the club there is a “luxury bar” that is, unlike some clubs, there is a bartender to assist you for drinks other than OJ in the morning or iced tea in the afternoons.
Across from the bar is the Starbucks coffee options. I am not a coffee drinker but this setup is not as grand as some other clubs.
Just left of the bar is the one food service area. Above are stock continental Delta Sky Club breakfast choices.
Soup, salad, chicken salad and other choices.
Just to the right of the main club area is a small seating space that does offer some nice runway views.
The club is really just this one main large room with additional seating around this space. Do take notice of the far wall.
Like in other clubs there is an internet accessible printer and paper shredder (good for DC right). However it is a bit strange to me having it out in the main central area.
Along the right side is where you want to sit if you are enjoying a complimentary beverage and want to get the best airport views.
Or if you are having a snack there are some tables along the back wall with equally nice sights to take in.
Along the back left wall there is a long subdivided laptop work space with views of the concourse below. The chairs are less than comfortable and I found many standing while working. This is not a great work setup and during crowded times I can see this being less than ideal.
One of the best things going for this somewhat dated Sky Club are the views that are stunning of DC. This alone would be a reason to visit this club.
I also spoke to the manager of the club and was told they are working on getting funds for a remodel and it would be nice to see a refresh. I was also told the club can at peak times get very crowded.
