United Airlines is reportedly spending $50 million this year to renovate and refresh many of its United Club locations, and I had the chance to visit the recently redone Denver West location yesterday.
Basically what theyâ€™ve done is swapped out the seating for new chairs, tables and counters identical to whatâ€™s in the newest club location at Chicago Oâ€™Hareâ€™s Terminal 2 (F-concourse).
[My apologies for the poor quality iPhone images â€“ the lounge was rather busy and I was trying to be as discreet as possible.]
Unitedâ€™s clubs in Denver are known for their lack of power outlets and youâ€™ll still have a hard time finding them if youâ€™re seated in the new leather chairs. But they have at least added counters along the windows with outlets, as well as included plugs underneath some of the tabletops.
The Denver East location has yet to receive the refresh and sports the same old worn furniture with highly limited access to power outlets. The view, however, remains one of the best features of either club.
