I headed all the way to the international terminal to visit the Club at ATL since I was flying SWA to Orlando and didn't want to make use of the Southwest Lounge. The trip took about 15 minutes via train but was well worth it for the one hour that I spent there.
Not every lounge is going to be Cathay Pacific's The Pier or The Wing. Some are going to be as extravagant as a Greyhound bus station. The Louis Tavern Bangkok is one of those misses.
God bless Priority Pass Lounges. When they are good (see ATL, Athens, Gatwick) they can't stack up to the likes of Cathay's The Wing or Emirates First Class Lounge Dubai. When they are terrible, they are victims of my contempt (see Priority Pass Lounge Jakarta and Mexico City).
I left for the airport early because traffic in Guadalajara is a nightmare. (see Guadalajara Travel Guide) I arrived promptly only to find out that my flight was delayed for hours. No worries, there was a Priority Pass Lounge that was Lounge of the Year in 2016.
Air France's bus route from DTW to CDG only got worse when we arrived bright and early into Paris. Our flight to Naples (also in coach) left at 8:45PM giving me plenty of time to relax, pull up a chair, and wait for Charles de Gaulle to present our Priority Pass Lounge. Only he didn't.
The Priority Pass Lounge in Malpensa Airport was a lifesaver. Having 4PM checkout at the Park Hyatt Milan is meaningless when your flight is at 930AM and you have to be out of the hotel by 6AM.
