When Sharon took a solo trip to California, she flew home from San Francisco on a red-eye with an 11 PM departure time. Through the kindness of an acquaintance, she had access to a United Club. I kindly asked her if she would take pictures and write about the club.
I’m not sure what I was expecting, since she’s usually just as satisfied sitting at the gate as in a lounge (Note from Sharon: true story! As long as I have internet access, and have electricity to plug into if my battery is running low, I’m good).
Here are her pictures of the club. They’re mostly self-explanatory. I figure the club was as empty as it was because it was late on a Sunday evening. Based on the decor, It looks like she visited the United Club at the G gates.
The first thing she figured out was that she didn’t have access to the Polaris Lounge (Note from Sharon: Yeah, I stopped, read the sign, realized that wasn’t me, and kept on going).
Entering the lounge, there are desks (not in use) and elevators down to the club level.
That’s where she found the check-in desk.
It looks like a pretty basic club.
The food selection consisted of sandwiches and a salad bar.
The lounge did offer views of planes sitting at their gates.
I’m sure that you noticed that there’s not much to this review more than the pictures. That’s because Sharon’s review of the United Club at SFO can be summed up like this:
It was an airport club. There were chairs, food, drinks and a bathroom. Anything else?
Yeah. So I’m not sure what I was expecting when I asked someone who doesn’t care about club access to write a club review. At least I got some pictures from her to let you all see what the club looks like.
(Note from Sharon: They had brownies that were really yummy!)
