The Premier Lounge in Colorado Springs (COS) is a nifty little lounge in a very small airport. It’s not worth arriving early for, but I appreciate that the airport even has a lounge.
Premier Lounge Colorado Springs (COS) Review
The lounge is located about halfway down the departure hall on the right side. Let’s begin with who has access, since this is a rather unique lounge when it comes to gaining entrance.
First, Priority Pass, Lounge Club, and LoungeKey membership grants access, which is hardly a surprise. But others have access too, including:
- American Airlines Concierge Key, Executive Platinum, Platinum Pro, and Platinum AAdvantage members
- Delta Air Lines SkyMiles Diamond and Platinum Medallion members
- Frontier Airlines Early Returns Elite members
- Southwest Airlines A-List and A-List Preferred members
- United Airlines Global Services and Premier 1K MileagePlus members
- oneworld Emerald status holders
- Star Alliance Gold status holders
While there is often an attendant on duty, just as often there no one at the desk and you can sign in using the honor system. You can bring in guests for $11 each and anyone can access the lounge for $26 each.
For years, this lounge was called the “Mortgage Solutions Financial” Premier Lounge, but that sponsorship has ended and it appears the airport itself is running the lounge.
The lounge is open daily from 4:30 am until the last flight departs.
Don’t expect much inside. There is seating, power plugs, and a business area with printer, scanner, newspapers, and magazines. No restrooms.
There’s a limited selection of food and drink (which has frankly worsened over the years), though the lounge recently upgraded its coffee from simply a carafe of filter coffee to an espresso machine. Soft drinks and water are also available, though no alcohol.
I like to grab a salty snack in here since there is never any service on the 73-mile United flight between Colorado Springs and Denver.
Bottom line: I appreciate this lounge and I appreciate this entire airport…it’s a very cute little airport that is very easy to travel through.
