There are currently four open ‘Minute Suites’ airport locations in the U.S.: two at Dallas Fort-Worth, one in Atlanta, and one in Philadelphia.

A second Atlanta location opens soon. But the real news is that a Minute Suites in Charlotte opens this month.
While we love our naps, we are hard st work in CLT! After some issues with the construction, we are set to open in a couple weeks!

Since existing Minute Suites locations accept Priority Pass, I imagine this one will too. It will be the first Priority Pass lounge in the Charlotte airport and will likely offer one hour free usage of a private room.
Based on my experience elsewhere when you check in they take not just your Priority Pass card but also a credit card and ID. They’ll authorize your credit card but not charge it. If you stay more than an hour, each additional hour will cost you $28. And there are plenty of add-ons you can pay for while you’re there.
A Minute Suites room is just a small room. It has a desk and a couch-ish area. You don’t get free snacks or drinks like in a traditional lounge. But for peace and privacy in an airport it’s hard to beat.
I highly prefer a private room to work in than an open lounge. I wish we got more than one hour included with Priority Pass, though you can pay for more.
Priority Pass comes bundled with several premium credit cards, and often not just with unlimited visits but even unlimited guests (subject to capacity of the lounge). I have Priority Pass Select cards from several different credit cards, for instance I have both the Chase Sapphire Reserve® and the Platinum Card by American Express. I actually write on the back of the card which credit card it came with because each offers different privileges.
This will definitely be welcome.
