    They do not offer free alcohol. Good printing possibilities. Quiet. Some snacks and sodas for free.

    I don't understand why grown adults are not using the tongues... I had the roasted red pepper and gouda soup.

    Could/should do so much better: shabby carpets and sofas, paltry food and drinks selection, overall unappealing and unwelcoming design. In a few words, your typical US airline lounge.

    Place is nice but it's often packed... If you want to find 2 spots one next to the other, good luck! Food options are very limited (that's true outside of the lounge too).

    Bland: from food and drink to furniture and facilities, this lounge has all the ambience of a poorly-funded library. Saving grace? Plentiful power at each seat for a pre-flight charge. Eat elsewhere.

    House wine free and drinkable. Premium wines much higher quality but not free. If you have a united branded credit card, there is often a discount.

    The lounge was fully packed and there were literally no free seats available. Food consists of snacks only and drinks are low quality. Avoid if possible!

    Brand new and terrible. Tiny, all open so there is no privacy, no business center. I hope this is not the future of United clubs.

    Don't pay for access if not included in your ticket. "food" is snack junk food like cookies. WiFi is impossible slow. I'm not a happy MP member at the moment.

    Forgot how nice this club is. Never regretted spending the money once I'm inside, if I end up with an hour or more to kill. You get two free passes if you sign up with the Mileage Plus Visa.

    There really needs to be a sign here that says, "If you cannot get your children to behave, you will be asked to leave and not to return." Actually, that sign needs to be everywhere.

    Looks nice when walking into the reception area, then you get to the lounge... The furniture is in desperate need of a refresh. The snacks are the same as any other United Club. Beer & wine are free.

    It's on the right side, behind sliding glass doors, as you step off the Travel-ator after passing thru the TSA Check Point. For Premiers... it a long walk from the 80's gates to the Travel-ator.

    If you are premier, make sure you use the premier security line to the left of the premier counter. Way faster.
