    Best of the Airline Clubs (United and Delta are underwhelming)... the sushi is decent for the Midwest and the free bloody Mary's are made in-house (read: NOT canned mix) and good!

    AA admirals club is probably the largest/best atmosphere of most club rooms I've seen (even has a kids playroom), but definitely gives you the least free snacks and lowest end complementary beverages.

    Here is the standard American way: pretzels and carrots for free, you need to pay for everything. Consider staying at concourse level: better choice for the same price. And no wifi today...

    The vegitable soup! But I kick it up a a bit by taking some of the cheese cubes they have and pour the piping hot so over it and let it sit there for a bit before devouring it. Yummy for the tummy.

    Great kids room to the left of the bar: tv, video games, toys, and a space for kids to be kids! Free water at the bar, too, to refill H2O bottles.

    Remodeled very nicely. Has the Nescafé Algeria machines and soda fountain for DIY drinks. Right across from G8.

    Staff usually good. H/K club always crowded after 7:30a. Try the G or L concourse locations. Outlets not always conveniently located. Wish they had something other than frozen OJ concentrate juice.

    If you're traveling with kids, the larger Club has a huge, sound proof kids room, which is a great place to spend airport time with the youngsters..

    You get a "chit" for one free drink, incl water. Coffee and juice are free. Anything other than crap muffins costs money. At least it's quiet!

    Pro tip: cleaner, emptier bathrooms on the second floor conference room level. Out of the elevator on 2, walk to the right. Thank me later!

    Depending on who's working the bar, the complimentary Bloody Mary is a real, handmade treat. Throw your bartender a tip, wontcha?

    Tarragon Chicken is very good, but FYI it's more of a Chicken Salad type sandwich than chicken breast or deli. Still very good.

    The elusive William Tincup can sometimes be found lounging here. A rare treat for travelers, but worth the price of admission!

    Ticket agents are great. If cancelled or long delay they can do amazing things. Lounge is sometimes crowded but always better than the gates

    One of the largest AA Clubs I've experienced. If you have an AX Platinum card = free entrance. Shhh, they don't advertise this, but if you are not a member, you can pay $50 for 24 access.

    Pro Tip - the 3 four seaters outside the club by the entrance are the best. It'll also the quietest corridor in the airport ..

    For some reason, I don't love this lounge. Maybe it's too big. Snacks are not healthy. Only some drinks are complimentary. Somewhat tough to find. On the positive side, lots of seating options. .

    One of the more crowded airline lounges. Use the cell free, quiet area if you don't care about watching TV.

    Towards the back of the club are four Eames lounge chairs - super comfortable and great for a quick nap if you're worn out from traveling.

    Service OK, complementary items are so few. No worth paying, but if you need to shower or rest, it is nice and spacious

    This place is marginally better than the United club. Well off the pace of international airline lounges, but bordering on tolerable

    What happened to business center that was on left after entering? Yeah, it only had 7 small cubicle areas, but I worked in there a lot. It was more private, too. Now just a wall.

    " A oasis place for workaholics " Bring your headphones with you. If not you will be listening all kinds of sales business conversations.

    The "quiet room" extends to a thin white wall next to the children's room...so, it defeats the purpose of the room.

    Wifi was free and blazingly fast today. Free to entire world that is, no advantage number necessary for authentication

    Dont expect decent service here. Food is not served before 8am (though there is no sign that has the hours but they have an "all-day" menu). Overall not up to par with the expensive membership fees.

    If you've been to any airline club outside of the United States, you'll realize just how pathetic this place is. You'll pay for food anyway, so just go to Macaroni Grill or something.

    If I'm not mistaken, being an elite member only gives you free access to the lounge. However, the food and beverages are for pay.
