What are the top 5 Concierge Lounges in the U.S.A.?
The first one which sprang to mind when I read this question was the Pittsburgh Marriott North. It has been newly remodeled and is absolutely gorgeous. In addition, the food selections are far superior to many other lounges and the staff are very customer service oriented.
Cranberry Township Hotels - Pittsburgh Marriott North
The second one which sprang to mind was the Ottawa Marriott for their magnificent views and food selections.

I should probably read some of my reviews to see if I can recall any others which were memorable. lol
The Indianapolis JW, was really very nice!
Great food, nice staff, and plenty of room. Very memorable, and I would want to go back!
I agree, they were delightful at the Indy JW. The best lounge I've been in at a Marriott property.
Oh my goodness. How could I forget the La Concha in San Juan?!! I would rate that one tops.

The other noteworthy lounge is Seattle Marriott Waterfront.

I'll second the Seattle Waterfront Lounge.
In no specific order I'll go with https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/phlar-philadelphia-airport-marriott/, excellent evening food and very different from most CL and as Nathan the Lounge Associate always will tell ya, "one calorie desserts" most made fresh.
Even though I haven't stayed here in about a year, https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/dfwam-dfw-airport-marriott-south/ a nice bright large lounge with outgoing associates and breakfast.
https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/okcbr-renaissance-oklahoma-city-convention-center-hotel/ usually has wide variety of food in the evening and morning in a quiet yet small lounge.
Thank-you along with missgee, for reminding me of this wonderful CL!
Seattle Waterfront Marriott, is a good reason to go back to Seattle!
JW Marriott Marquis Miami.
Awesome service, food, and fabulous view.
Atlanta Marriott Marquis - fantastic view - large comfortable lounge, with many selections.
Best concierge lounges....here's my top 4:
JW Marriott Indianapolis....big, great food, superb staff, wonderful view...what more can I say?
Marriott Biscayne Bay Miami.....unbelievably nice view, good food and friendly staff.
Marriott Eastside new York City......good food, good staff, nice outside deck area to experience the sounds of the big city.
Marriott Waterfront Seattle...great view, friendly staff, food is good.
Looks like Seattle Waterfront is getting the most votes. communitymanagers ....maybe they should come of out of this on top and be given some nice award before all the new UA Gold members show up!!
I will be staying at the JW Marriott Indianapolis in September. I am looking forward to it.
I've went to 3 that stood out.
JW Marriott LA LIVE - very upscale small plates at night like smoked salmon with creme fraiche and dill as well as a nice carrot cake napoleon for dessert; they also had a restaurant-esque self-serve coffee machine that utilized real milk to churn out great drinks like hot chocolate (complete with a cappuccino-like foam).
San Francisco Marriott Union Square - dinner was good but small on variety; breakfast though featured great breakfast pastries (fitting with the many great bakeries in SF); at the holidays, there is a great view of the Union Square Plaza--huge Christmas tree and a very nicely decorated Macy's.
Philadelphia Marriott Downtown - in terms of quality, nothing special, but their variety was very good.
Take a short walk and enjoy a steak at:
It is rated one of the finest in the US, and very enjoyable. Just make sure you enjoy the fine food at The JW's CL!
It is hard for me to pick a top 5 because there are so many different variables: breakfast quality, nightly appetizers quality, desserts appetizers, atmosphere, access, etc. so I picked 5 that stood out in specific ways.
(Best Overall Food) JW Marriott LA LIVE
(Best Hours) JW Marriott SF Union Square - open 7 days as week including afternoon snacks; great commercial grade coffee / latte / espresso / hot chocolate machine that uses real milk
(Best Drinks) JW Marriott Denver Cherry Creek - lots of variety and free alcohol
(Best View) SF Marriott Union Square during the holidays
(Best Atmosphere) JW Marriott Indianapolis - great variety of seating and attractive decor
Marriott San Jose California, Cleveland Marriott Downtown, Newark Renaissance, Dulles Airport Marriott, Columbus Renaissance
I would have to put the Denver Tech Center, SF Union Square and San Antonio Riverwalk (not River Center) as the top 3 and in that order. Sheri is the absolute best in the morning in Denver and James in San Antonio is a true Concierge...The hours during the holidays at Union Square are unsurpassed....Thank you to all of you for being the best!
Renaissance in Plantation FL
We just got back from a stay at the JW Marriott in Grand Rapids, Michigan and were thrilled with our visit to the Concierge Lounge there. The view is beautiful and overlooks the Gerald Ford Presidential Museum. This is the first lounge we have visited that offers free cocktails of your choice plus a wide assortment of delicious food. The staff is very helpful and makes a point of engaging everyone in a brief conversation and offering assistance in planning your visit to this outstanding city. We can't wait to go back to Grand Rapids.
I have experienced many fine concierges lounges across the United States. Can we include the rest of the world? I love the concierge lounge at the Gran Plaz Marriott in Brussels, Belgium. Great variety and cocktail hour snacks are wonderful. I love the easy access with the lounge on the first floor. Have stayed there many times and hope to stay there again soon.
the one near Vanderbilt campus you an actually watch the football game from the lounge
The Renaissance LAX has a great lounge. Food quality is the best in the US and the staff, which are long timers, are wonderful. The Waterford Marriott in OKC has an unexpectedly nice lounge. If visiting OKC, I highly recommend that hotel.
The rooftop BBQ suppers offered by the Memphis Marriott. Great food and drink. Ability to meet other guests. Wonderful view of the mighty Mississippi River. Awesome!
The Griffin Club at the JWM Desert Ridge in Phoenix. Hands down great food, staff, facilities, and service! Multiple times impressed.
Nashville Renaissance - great food, hot and fresh and the hospitality is terrific
Mobile Battle House - southern graciousness
Really do not like Hotel 57 in NYC - dark, crowded in winter. Summer has the rooftop which is superb though!
Out of the US? Berlin on Postdamer Platz - absolutely amazing and the beer/wine/prosecco were complimentary!
The JW Marriott Marquis Towers in Dubai! Great Views, Great Staff, and Superb Prosecco!!
The first location that comes to mind was the Marriott Biscayne Bay in Miami. The desserts were delicious with a variety of cakes, and finger foods.
The second location is the Marriott Gateway with spectacular views of the Canadian Falls.
The third is the Marriott Marquis especially for breakfast.
The fourth is the Marriott East Side for its service and food.
The fifth is the JW Atlanta.
JW Marriott SF Union Square for all the reasons other have published especially the pastries.
The Renaissance Orlando Airport has a nice breakfast to keep you going whether on business or vacation.
Is there a trend to re-locate lounges to the ground floor, for example SLC City Center (Mary is so nice to greet you there) and Park City? I am generally ok with this - easy access, re-modeled, and probably easier for staff. Memorable visits:
Cherry Creek Denver and South Beach resonate with me - great plates, presentation, variety, and cool decor!
Baton Rouge Marriott for its unique tables
SF Marq has amazing variety and huge seating
but best bfast ever was in Montreal and generally in the rest of Canada!
My favorites are
Baltimore Harbor Renaissance.
Copley Place Marriott in Boston.
Norfolk VA Marriott.
JW Marriott at Union Sq in SF
East Side Marriott in NYC
Most of my true favorites, however, are in Europe.
As a new platinum member, i've been enjoying browsing the different hotel types and lounges. Marriott in Georgetown D.C has been my favorite to date.
The Blackstone Hotel ( Chicago ) used to have a really nice one on the top floor when the hotel was a Renaissance Brand. When it switched to the Autograph Brand this year, they moved it into the basement.
The old Lounge had great views of lake Michigan.
Our favorite is the old stand-by, Greensboro-High Point (NC) Airport Marriott. The hotel is fininshing a total re-do and the Concierge Lounge has been relocated several times in the past 2 years. It is now in a "temporary" location on the first floor, while the finished product will be on the 6th Floor (as it used to be). HOWEVER -- even in its' temporary home, the hospitality is wonderful. Here is an example of what I just received this morning -- we will be there Sept. 6 -- everyone leaves with at least 1,000 bonus points, and a very good time had by all! Miss Tina and Mr. Eddie are wonderful hosts, and that's what it's all about.
It's time once again, as is our weekly tradition, to celebrate your loyalty to Marriott! Here at the Greensboro Airport Marriott, we want to recognize you for all of the countless hours of travel and hard work on the road that it takes to make you one of our Elite Members. To thank you for your loyalty to Marriott, and for staying at the Greensboro Airport Marriott, we will be hosting our Elite member's social event this Wednesday September 6th, from 6pm to 7pm with a complimentary beer and wine hour. In addition, those in attendance will be entered in a drawing for some great prizes. If there is anything I can do to make your experience here an outstanding one, I hope you'll let me know. Thank you and I'll see you soon.

JW Marriott Marquis Miami
