There are currently plenty of airport lounges at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) in Seattle, however it seems difficult to find a list of all the lounges available at the airport. The airport’s website mentions a few lounges, but I couldn’t find a complete list anywhere (except, of course, LoungeBuddy, amazing app by the way). So I’ve compiled a list of all of the airport lounges at SEA, I’ve written reviews about most of the lounges except a two (and I plan on doing that soon) and you can click on my reviews of each lounge to read more.
United operates all of their flights from Concourse A and therefore there is a United Club across from gate A9. All non-United Star Alliance Gold members have access to the lounge when flying on another Star Alliance airline (even domestically). All United Star Alliance Gold members need to have at least one international segment on their itinerary to gain access. Here’s a post I wrote about all of the ways to gain access to United Clubs.
The lounge is fairly new and features plenty of seating areas. The food & drink selection is poor (though United will be updating the food in their lounges soon), however the environment is quiet and most chairs are comfortable, the agents are very friendly, and the Wi-Fi is fast. If you plan to work or relax, this is the lounge for you; if you’re hungry, I’d recommend going elsewhere.
Formerly the Delta Crown Room Club and Club Cascade, The Club at SEA is an independent airport lounge with plenty of seating and great snacks. The lounge rarely has people due to its location at the end of Concourse A, near gate A11. Access to the lounge is granted via Priority Pass, Lounge Club, or First/Business Class on select international airlines departing from Seattle. Overall, it’s a large lounge which has plenty of seats and a good variety of warm snacks.
American Express The Centurion Studio (Coming Soon)
The new AMEX Centurion Studio in Seattle will open summer 2015 and will feature a quiet, comfortable space for American Express Platinum and Centurion cardmembers. Warm snacks, drinks, and alcoholic beverages will be available. The lounge will be smaller than the average Centurion Lounges due to the fact that AMEX doesn’t have a large space to build an entire lounge, so a ‘studio’ concept has been created. Once this lounge is open, I guarantee that this will be my primary lounge in Seattle given the fact that I LOVE AMEX’s lounges.
The Alaska Airlines Board Room in Seattle is Alaska Airlines’ flagship lounge… and it’s very old and tired. While the lounge is constantly full (because Seattle is Alaska’s base and hub), it does have free alcoholic beverages and a great selection of warm soups, salads, and other healthy snacks. Access is granted via First Class travel on Alaska Airlines, Board Room Membership, Priority Pass, Lounge Club, and travel on select Alaska Airlines partners.
Seattle Airport’s second independent lounge which primarily serves international airlines flying out of Seattle (such as Lufthansa, Icelandair, etc.) The lounge is full during peak hours, 12-15, when all of the big international carriers are flying out of Seattle. The selection of snacks and drinks is similar to that of The Club at SEA Concourse A, snacks include soups, salads, healthy protein bars, cookies, fruit, etc. Alcoholic drinks are available.
Delta Airlines Sky Club (SkyTeam)
The lounge is located one level up from the departures floor where the gates are, there are stairs next to gate S10 which lead upstairs to the Sky Club and the British Airways lounge. The Sky Club is very spacious and there is a good variety of snacks and drinks. I haven’t reviewed the lounge yet and will do so in the near future.
British Airways Terraces & First Class Lounge (oneworld)
British Airways operates a lounge exclusively for its customers departing from Seattle. The lounge is located next to the Sky Club, one level up from the main departure gate area. There is also a separate First Class lounge for British Airways First Class passengers which is located inside of the main Terraces lounge. A review of this lounge is coming soon.
There is a lounge for military members located landside on the mezzanine level above the south check-in counters.
