Dallas DFW airport is big – really big. Like Delta, in Atlanta there are AA lounges just everywhere. In addition to the Delta Sky Club in DFW there is also the legendary Centurion DFW that I am happy to fly down and spend the day in. But there are also two Minute Suites that you can access for free for 1 hour with Priority Pass.
“Conditions – 1. Cardholders can use their lounge visit entitlement to use a Minute Suite for a 1 hour stay. 1 Minute Suite usage represents a single lounge visit within the Cardholder’s existing lounge visit allocation for which the Cardholder will, where applicable, be charged. Each subsequent hour of Minute Suite usage will be charged at a discounted rate of US$28 and payable directly to Minute Suites. 2. Up to 3 guests accompanying the Cardholder in the same Minute Suite may use it at no extra charge.
Additional Information – 3. The Cardholder is responsible for any additional charges incurred. Minute Suites may ask Cardholders to present a payment card for incidentals at the time of check-in. 4. Each Minute Suite is equipped with a comfortable daybed sofa (sleeps two), pillows, fresh blankets, a workstation, a sound masking system that helps to neutralize noise and Nap26 audio program to help deliver a refreshing power nap. 5. Minute Suite usage is subject to availability.” – PriorityPass.com
You will find one of them in the D concourse just across from Gate 23 (the other one is in the A concourse near gate 38).
Let me start with the fact that I personally feel the pricing, for what is offered, is high. These are not suites IMO. They are a small room (and don’t suites have a second room or something attached like a shower or lavatory).
One nice feature is that these have noise insulation and I was impressed, when the door was closed, how you really could not hear anything of the outside airport noise.
If you are looking for a quick cat nap or some quiet time I can see the value via Priority Pass entrance. For an overnight there are much better choices a free hotel shuttle away.
Other than the room, you should be ready to pay for everything extra. Want H20? Be ready for mini-bar pricing (they say same as the rest of the airport but still ridiculous).
They do have showers but that is an up-charge too. Only $20 for the discounted with Priority Pass rate (vs. $30 for 30 minutes) but still an up-charge. I would much rather go to the Centurion if you have access.
One other thing they do provide (5 free pages) is a fax machine. Now I know when was the last time you ever needed a fax? Well if you do that is also included. 😉
I guess I am just not the target audience for this concept. I really don’t understand, at these prices, how the concept can survive. Have you tried the Minute Suites in Dallas or now in Atlanta? – René
