My favorite Delta Sky Club is in Atlanta. My second favorite is the one in Salt Lake City. Unlike the self-serve style of the one in Detroit or the one I went to in Minneapolis, the Sky Club in SLC is worth the [free] cost of admission courtesy of the Amex Platinum card.
Am I crazy? Wasn't I just here? The Delta Sky Lounge at Detro Metro Airport is exactly like the one in Minneapolis. This one boasts a grand entrance with a front desk that makes you think you are checking into the Waldorf. Instead, after taking the escalator up one level, you find yourself back in the mediocrity that is the Delta Sky Lounge.
"Where is the bar?" I asked the check-in hostess. She directed me to go to the back of the lounge where to my surprise I found two things: 1) A decent selection of alcoholic beverages 2) no bartender. I was expecting more from this lounge because Minneapolis is a hub for Delta. Compared to the Atlanta Sky Lounge which is one of the best lounges I have visited, this one was average.
