Drive-By: The Amazing Delta Sky Club @ Seattle-Tacoma Airport

I spent the weekend in Seattle and ended up flying back to SF on Delta. Since United has a huge presence at SFO, I rarely fly Delta and have little knowledge of the airline’s offerings.

As I was headed to the airport, I remembered that Amex Platinum cardholders have access to Delta SkyClubs when flying on a Delta ticket. My flight was out of gate A2, which made the SkyClub next to gate A1 very conveniently located.

After checking in at the front desk with my boarding pass and Amex card, I was informed about my flight and the lounge’s offerings: food, drink, and spa. I totally overslept my alarm that morning and hurriedly checked out of my airbnb without showering, so I went straight to the shower suites, which are located at the spa.

The spa offers complimentary shower suites and paid services. I believe the 20 minute massage was $50, which seemed pretty steep. I’m not sure how many people will avail themselves of that service.

I asked for a shower suite and was able to get one immediately. The woman working the front desk at the spa scanned my boarding pass and gave me shower suite #1. It looks like the club has six shower suites total, which is a lot! It’s amazing that a US lounge even has a shower, let alone 6!

The shower suite featured an upright shower, toilet, sink, bench, and Malin+Goetz toiletries (which I love!). The attendant offered toothbrushes and shave kits as well.

After my shower, I had about 20 minutes to eat and chill before my flight. I decided to sit in the seating area close to the food and the massive windows.

The food selection had cold items (mixed salads, salad bar, cheese and hummus plate) and two hot items: bolognese pasta and vegetarian chili. There’s also a full bar.

The windows offer great views of the A gates. I kept an eye on gate A2 and didn’t leave the lounge until the plane actually pulled in.

I wish I could have spent more time at this lounge! If you’re flying Delta and you have access, it’s worth stopping by.
