Last summer Priority Pass added the club lounge at the Sofitel hotel at London Heathrow’s terminal 5 to its roster of lounges that cardmembers could access. This was a really creative play, it’s not a traditional airport lounge, but provided a very unique option for travelers.

However while the Priority Pass website still makes reference to the lounge:
It’s now gone from from their list of London Heathrow lounges and gone from the lounge search as well.
Reader Len M. writes, “Just checked into the Sofitel Heathrow. According to the [front desk], they left Priority Pass on June 6.”
This may be a minor note and there are plenty of options remaining at Heathrow for use of a Priority Pass — including the new Aspire lounge in terminal 5 — but it’s a good reminder that lounges in this program can come and go, and it’s always a good idea to search the Priority Pass website before making your airport plans.
