Priority Pass lounge access cards come with the Platinum Card by American Express, Citi Prestige Card, and Chase Sapphire Reserve Card.

Last month I wrote that the Minute Suites in Philadephia was now a Priority Pass lounge.

Located in the connector between the A terminal (terminal A East) and B terminal, it’s perfect for American Airlines passengers. Open 24 hours a day, Priority Pass gets you 1 hour access to a suite per visit. You can pay for additional time at $28 per hour.

Priority Pass now gets you access to the other Minute Suites, too.

  • Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) Terminal A
  • Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) Terminal D
  • Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL)

Each suite is equipped with a daybed sofa that features two sleeping surfaces with fresh pillows and blankets. A sound-masking system in each suite neutralizes noise, and the unique NAP26Tm audio program helps deliver the equivalent of three hours of sleep in only 26 minutes! Each room has a high-definition television with access to DIRECTV, the Internet, and flight-tracking information.

The Turkish Airlines lounge at Washington Dulles joined Priority Pass and the new The Club at Orlando’s international airport is a Priority Pass lounge now as well. They add to the more than 40 US lounges you can access with the card (and more than 1000 worldwide).

Alaska Airlines lounges have gotten crowded, so those do now sometimes deny access to cardholders, however it’s great to see new options being added.

More valuable Priority Pass benefits increase the value of the Platinum Card by American Express, Citi Prestige Card, and Chase Sapphire Reserve Card.

  1. Do these rooms rent by the hour? Hope they have extra cleaning staff to handle the post-tatl. quickie crowd.

  2. No food, no drinks, no view but this was the best Priority Pass lounge I have ever used. I had 2 hours of great sleep.

  3. Does anyone know if Minute Suites (through Priority Pass) is for departing passengers only? Some lounges check to see if you’ve got a valid boarding pass for an onward same-day flight, and will not allow entry for an arriving passenger with no onward flight. I frequently fly into PHL, and I’d like to use Minute Suites for a quick nap after arrival, before picking up a rental car for a long drive.

  4. Unlike many airline lounges partnering with Priority Pass Minute Suites welcomes PP members without checking boarding passes
