I’m not the biggest fan of the Admiral’s Club Lounge at LAX as it’s quite tiny, often overcrowded and minimal to offer. We do always however take full advantage of the showers each time we stop here. It’s a great way to freshen up and get ready for the last leg of our trip.
The showers do book out rather quickly, so you need to put your name on a wait list and wait to have your name called. The showers are beautiful with high quality soaps, shampoos and lotions, however could use slightly more room.
Food and beverages are laid out to the far right of the lounge with a small bar area to sit around. They do offer some top shelf liquors and wines, however their food selection is quite minimal. Simple snacks are available with no real substantial food to choose from.
The lounge itself is quite spacious and airy with high ceilings, modern lounge furniture and large open spaces for walking around with luggage. I do enjoy how the food section is separate to the lounge area so guests who simply want to relax, are able to do so.
The chairs near the wall offer in seat music for those looking to sit back and listen to some music before jumping on their next flight. High quality headphones are provided to help increase the experience and cancel out the background noise. The lounge offers complimentary WiFi as well as daily newspapers and current magazines to enjoy.
Most people don’t realise that you are able to buy day passes for around the $50 price point, which gives you a full day’s access to all the Admiral Club Lounges around the world. This is particularly good for those who are traveling to multiple cities/countries as they are able to enter all affiliated lounges.
For those on business, the lounge also offers a small business centre with computers and printer’s available if needed. A small kid’s room is also available for those traveling with children, which is a great way to keep the little ones occupied until the next flight.
Overall, the lounge is better than some I’ve been to, however the snacks available are minimal, especially for someone getting off a long flight looking for something a bit more substantial. This being my only critic, I’d say the lounge is pretty on par with most other lounges available.
