The Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse in Washington Dulles is now a Priority Pass lounge. A nice one at that.
For Priority Pass members, it is available daily from 6:00 A.M. to 1:30 P.M. Your membership card technically gives you three hours in the lounge, though I don’t think they’d throw you out if you wanted to stay a bit longer.
During the Priority Pass hours, the lounge amenities are very much scaled down. I was there at 7:00 A.M. and counted eight others in the lounge. Rather than an elaborate buffet and a la carte menu, a more modest buffet is available featuring cold cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit (including delicious peaches and plums), vanilla yogurt parfaits, croissants, bagels, and finally egg sandwiches made to order. Beverages include coffee, tea, orange juice, cranberry juice, beer, seltzer water, and ginger ale. I asked for a cappuccino (and even offered to make it myself), but was denied.
That’s not a bad breakfast spread and far better than what is offered at the British Airways lounge nearby.
The lounge has plenty of seating (even though the upstairs seating is closed) including a mix of chairs and couches.
A pinter with wireless printing is available.
The restroom does not have showers. If you need a shower, the other three Priority Pass lounges in Dulles have them.
Dulles has four Priority Pass lounges all within a short walking distance of one another: British Airways, Turkish, Air France, and Virgin Atlantic. Tomorrow, I will compare and rank these four lounge. Just note the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse is a nice lounge and well worth a visit, especially if you want a hot breakfast.
