Opened in 2012 and initially operated by the Port of Seattle under the “Club International” name, the lounge became “The Club at SEA” in April 2015. The club is contracted by a wide range of international airlines which operate from the S gates including ANA, Emirates and Lufthansa, and also operates as a pay-in lounge for all passengers, regardless of airline or class of service.
The Club at SEA SEA design
Visitors are unlikely to pay much attention to the design at a first glance. The magic is in the view: with a slanted ceiling and a two-story window wall, The Club at SEA at Satellite S boasts terrific tarmac vistas and is bathed in natural light. The space is bright and airy, and plane lovers will enjoy sitting at the counter-style table that runs along the window.
Physically, otherwise, the club is comprised of a simple L shaped room of a modest size, with a rather plain design. The center portion features a food serving area along with armchairs with coffee tables. In the back is more seating, in a rather dense layout — the club can get painfully crowded at peak departure times.
Power outlets are sorely lacking, although they can be found by the windows.
The Club at SEA SEA amenities
The amenities are limited, especially for an international departure lounge. There is a small bathroom, but no showers.
The food selection is pretty limited, with an assortment of snacks, fruit, and soups. On the drinks front, soft drinks are available from self-serve coolers, and a selection of wines from the Washington state is on offer.
Behind a glass door to the left when entering is a small First Class section, though it features no differences in seating or amenities with the business class section. The bathroom and buffet are both located within the Business class portion of the lounge; the main benefit of the First Class space is the quiet and privacy that it affords when the lounge gets busy.
The Club at SEA SEA bottom line
Overall, The Club at SEA Satellite S is a basic facility for domestic travel, but pretty underwhelming for international travel, especially given the caliber of some of the airlines that make use of the lounge. ANA and Lufthansa passengers may prefer to use the United Club in the A concourse, which while hardly luxurious is brand new and typically quieter.
