Delta Sky Club SLC Review
While connecting at Salt Lake City airport, we visited Delta’s largest Sky Club. In my Delta Sky Club SLC review I’ll cover everything you need to know. I’ll go over the location, food options, various seats and just the overall feel of the space.
How to find the Sky Club
The SLC Delta Sky Club is in concourse A, Level 2 east of the new Airport Plaza. Firstly, from security, walk past “The Canyon,” and then turn right instead of left for the gates, and the lounge will be on the right.
If you are connecting from A Gates, walk toward the exit, but instead of heading right, continue straight towards the signs for Delta Sky Club, and it will be on your right.
How to access the Sky Club
Lounge access is available to:
- Delta Sky Club membership holders, which costs $545 a year and includes two guests, as long as you are traveling on a Delta or Delta Partner Flight.
- Customers traveling on Delta One or connecting from a same-day Delta One flight. No guests are included.
- Skyteam Elite Plus members (Including Diamond, Platinum, and Gold Medallion Status) traveling from or on a same-day international flight on Delta or a partner, excluding flights to Guam, Palau, Saipan, and the Caribbean. One guest is included.
- Westjet Rewards Gold and Platinum members traveling on a transborder flight. One guest is included.
- Westjet Business Class passengers are allowed access with no guests included.
- Delta Skymiles Reserve Credit Card and American Express Platinum cardholders are allowed in, but guests can also get access for $39 each.
- Delta Skymiles Diners Club and Delta Skymiles Trust Club Card are granted access with two guests included.
- Virgin Australia Club or Velocity Gold members are allowed access until June 12th, 2022 with one guest allowed.
- Anyone who gets a Delta one time lounge access certificate from their credit card or their status.
How we got access:
We got access through my mother’s Amex Platinum Card, which gives her access, and she purchased access for $39 for me to be granted access. This might sound expensive, but since Delta is our selected airline for the $200 airline credit, the credit will make access for me free.
Inside the Delta Sky Club Salt Lake City
When entering the lounge there will be some agents that check to verify you have access or assist with buying access. Once you are given the ok, take the escalator up to the 2nd floor. In case of any changes to your flight, there are agents there to assist. This is a very helpful feature to have, especially in recent months.
There are a lot of different seating options, and although the lounge was very busy, we did manage to find available seats. I also found some interesting airplane-like seats, that even have a tray table for working. Phone rooms are also available, which are very helpful in case anyone needs to take a call. There is also a SkyDeck, which I will talk about more later. Power outlets are at every seat.
Delta Sky Club Salt Lake City Review: Food and beverage
Two self-serve buffets are available, which are on different sides of the lounge. The options during breakfast were:
- Assorted Muffins
- Special K Cereal
- Spinach, Tomato, and Cheese Rotatta
- Fresh Fruit
- Yogurt Parfaits
- Toasted Bagels and Cream Cheese
Overall, this is a solid buffet spread. I liked how this was very simple food, rather than the more “sophisticated” food that is available at the Centurion lounge. The food at the Delta Sky Club SLC should apply to a much wider variety of people. Nature Valley granola bars and Planters trail mix is also available. For drinks, they had a coffee machine, a Starbucks Coffee Dispenser, a water dispenser that also has carbonated water, and a soda fountain. It’s great that there is a soda fountain, as this is something that the Centurion Lounges lack and require you to bother employees for a drink.
On each side of the lounge, there are two bars. They were a bit busy at 9 am, but likely get even busier as the day goes on. The bar’s menu is here. Previously, it used to be possible to get great value using miles at the bar, as the redemption rate was about 2 cents per mile, but Delta has devalued the redemption rate to 1.5 cents per point. This still is a solid redemption rate, and it is in the range of values we recommend. Where else can you get a glass of Dom for 2600 miles?
There is a Skydeck in the lounge, which features very nice tarmac views. The airport is still under construction, so the views are mostly of the new wings of Concourse A and B. The weather was also quite cold at 50 degrees, so because of that, not many people were outside. However, it did appear that they had some heat lamps, which would certainly help, but they were not on while I was here.
Next, for other amenities, this lounge has Wi-Fi which is at 100mbps up and down, and it was very fast while we were there. Showers are available, but you have to ask an attendant to assign a shower. A printer is also available, which is helpful in case the need arises for travel documents.
Delta Sky Club SLC Review: Final Thoughts
Overall, I really enjoyed my stay at the Sky Club, and the lounge featured every feature I could ask for. There was plenty of power outlets, many different seating options, great beverage options, and fast Wi-Fi. Although the cost is $40 per guest with the Amex Platinum Card. That makes it probably not worth it for larger groups unless you have a long layover.
