Boston-based travelers, you’re in luck. Just in time for the busy summer travel season, Chase will officially open the doors of the very first Sapphire Lounge by The Club location in the U.S.
In partnership with The Club, the nearly 12,000-square-foot lounge at Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) will begin welcoming travelers on Tuesday, May 16, 2023.
Let’s take a closer look at the much-needed space and the ways to secure access when it opens next week.
Sapphire Lounge by The Club at Boston (BOS)
For context, Chase is the latest issuer to get into the airport lounge game with its Sapphire Lounge by The Club, following the successes of American Express’ Centurion Lounges and Capital One Lounges.
Chase first opened a Sapphire Lounge by The Club in Hong Kong (HKG) last fall, as well as a Sapphire Terrace in Austin (AUS) in March. The Sapphire Terrace isn’t necessarily a full-blown airport lounge, but it still features grab-and-go food and comfortable indoor and outdoor seating.
Therefore, Boston will be the first domestic airport with a Sapphire Lounge by The Club, located between Terminals B and C, near gates B39 and B40. The lounge will be open daily from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. This will be a welcome addition to the lounge landscape at Boston Logan International Airport (BOS).
While American, Delta, and United all offer proprietary lounges at Boston, those with a Priority Pass membership are left with mediocre options (not to mention the fact that there isn’t an Amex Centurion Lounge in Boston).
Food, Drink, and Amenities at Boston’s Sapphire Lounge by The Club
Chase is upping the ante with its chic lounges. Not only will there be plenty of seating featuring “micro-living rooms” where travelers can relax before their flight, but the issuer is bringing an excellent array of local dishes curated by head chef Douglass Williams of MIDA, an upscale Italian restaurant in Boston’s South End.
There will also be local craft beer from Downeast, Wormtown, and Castle Island to look forward to, and coffee from Massachusetts’ Atomic Coffee Roasters.
Additionally, the amenities at Boston’s Sapphire Lounge by The Club are impressive:
- All-gender restrooms with Apokethe products
- Family room
- Nursing room
- Treatment rooms with anti-gravity massage chairs
- Wellness rooms with rest pods
We’ll have to check out the space for ourselves, but so far, the Sapphire Lounge by The Club looks great.
More Locations on the Horizon
We first learned of the concept of Sapphire Lounge by The Club in June 2021. And just under 2 years later, the first U.S. location is finally opening its doors to travelers.
Chase has managed to build and launch the Hong Kong Sapphire Lounge by The Club, the Austin Sapphire Terrace, and now, the Boston Sapphire Lounge by The Club, all in a relatively short time frame, with plenty more locations coming soon.
Following the opening of the Boston location, there are several other Sapphire Lounge by The Club locations scheduled to open soon at major airports, including New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA) and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX).
Meanwhile, Capital One announced its Denver (DEN) and Washington-Dulles (IAD) lounges back in fall 2021, and we have yet to hear an update on those locations.
How To Access the Sapphire Lounge by The Club
To start, primary cardmembers and authorized users with the Chase Sapphire Reserve®, J.P. Morgan Reserve Card, or The Ritz-Carlton™ Credit Card who have activated their complimentary Priority Pass lounge access can enter the Boston Sapphire Lounge by The Club. Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders and J.P. Morgan Reserve cardholders may bring up to 2 guests per Priority Pass membership card, per visit, for free, and additional guests for $27. This is quite generous considering that competing issuer American Express recently closed off Centurion Lounge guest access for many of its cardholders. Ritz-Carlton cardholders may bring unlimited guests at no charge. There’s no additional charge for children under 2.
Still, a Priority Pass membership is not necessarily exclusive to Chase. This means that any card that gives you Priority Pass access will offer entrance to the Sapphire Lounge by The Club, which includes competing options like The Platinum Card® from American Express and the Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card. However, Priority Pass members without a Chase Sapphire Reserve card will only be able to enter a Sapphire Lounge by The Club location 1 time at no cost per calendar year and will be charged a $75 entry fee upon each subsequent visit to any location within the Sapphire Lounge by The Club network.
Non-Priority Pass members can enter (subject to capacity) for $100 per visit.Hot Tip:
While the name may suggest otherwise, those with the more affordable Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card will unfortunately not get access as that card does not have Priority Pass lounge access as a benefit.
The days of merely hearing murmurs of a Sapphire Lounge by The Club in Boston are finally over. As the first-ever domestic Sapphire Lounge by The Club is set to open, it’s no surprise that the issuer is going all-in with the food, drink, and amenities offered in Boston.
We can’t wait to check out the space for ourselves when it opens — and we’ll be sure to report on the experience!
