I'm sat in a Marriott Exec lounge on 13th November 2014 enjoying the food and (especially) the free beer and thought it would be a good idea to start a resource about lounges, confident in the fact that being Flyertalks much smaller brother, it shouldn't become too unwieldy.


Now with added search-ability, thanks to vaboywnder  who has consolidated the Insiders lounge reviews here Lounge Review Master List 

Thanks vaboywnder for making Marriott Rewards Insiders that much better!!!


NB- After 2 years this thread has accumulated a lot of reviews, most from me acting as your resident lounge lizard, but a significant contribution has been made from others for which I thank you all! Although this thread looks daunting if you look at the bottom of this post is contains a list of almost all the properties reviewed here, by looking at the number of pages you should be able to make a decent estimate of where you'll find your review. A few contributors haven't tagged their contributions for which I apologise, but as things currently stand, looking at the list at the bottom of this post remains the fastest way to estimate the location of the lounge review you want...


Guaranteed lounge access is a major driver of my loyalty and I know this is the case for many of us here. The more info we have about the lounges the better our choices can be. I think this is especially important now that reviews have been removed from this site which has deprived me of my most trusted source of hotel info.


I'm asking all responders to make the hotel bold for easy reading and include useful info and photos. My set-up for each review is for my ease, I hope everyone who reviews a lounge does so in whatever way they feel comfortable.


Finally, please give the lounge a grading indicating whether its "Poor"(1/5)"OK"(2/5)"Good"(3/5)"Great"(4/5) or "Fabulous" (5/5).
