PHL – Terminal A/B – Minute Suite – Airline Lounge Review

Terminal A/B, Philadelphia International Airport

Introduction

This is my review of the Minute Suite in Philadelphia.

It’s quite an interesting ‘thing’, but it’s not really a lounge, and only offers 1 hour of access.

Possibly, for shorter layovers, it’s cheaper than a hotel (and the inconvenience) of going to a hotel, re-doing security, etc.

The idea is it’s a room for working, resting, and/or sleeping.

Opening Hours

The Suites are open 24 hours a day.

Entry Conditions

Priority Pass have no presence other in Philadelphia’s main airport, but they do have this offering.

Using your Priority Pass will get you in for 1 hour! After which it’s a $34/hr charge!

How to Get There

If you’re coming from Terminal A, take a walk to Terminal B, and you’ll see it on the right after the second moving walkway.

If you’re coming from Terminal B/C/D/E/F, then follow the signs towards Terminal A, and you’ll find it on the left.

Layout

To be honest, the smallest room in my house is bigger than this!

But after you’ve checked in you’ll be led through a corridor of other rooms.

Once at your room, you’ll find a large sofa/couch with a few cushions.

There is also a desk for working, and an office chair. I found the desk to be quite annoying as it had a lip on it which was quite uncomfortable on the wrists for typing!

There is a Google Nest, that I noticed next to the sofa, I guess for music, and there is a large TV too.

Food and Drink

As I mentioned above, this is not a lounge.

On the desk were a bunch of snacks, and under the desk there was a fridge with drinks.

All of this came with a price list!

Wifi

I found the Wifi here to be pretty good at 36mps up and down. It did everything I needed it to without issue!

Showers

Showers are available, but at extra charge.

Conclusion

If you are trying to work from the airport and need somewhere to go to do calls or work, or you want to sleep – this is not a bad place to do it in complete silence and privacy. However, with Priority Pass enabling just 1 hours use, it’s not difficult to question what the point is!
