Review: Turkish Airlines CIP Lounge IAD

We spent a long weekend in Washington, D.C. for my birthday.  On Sunday morning, we woke up early and headed out to Dulles.  We cleared security in a matter of minutes and took the airtrain to the B gates and located the lounge next to gate B43.

We were warmly welcomed, Priority Pass scanned, and shown into the lounge.  Emily and I have 4 Priority Pass memberships at the moment.  Each card has slightly different benefits so I write the credit card the membership is tied to on the back with a Sharpie.  I used my PP received from the Chase Sapphire Reserve card which includes free guests.

It was 6:30AM so the lounge was pretty empty.  The style was similar to the CIP lounge in Istanbul although certainly on a smaller scale.

There were a large, open seating area with different styles of chairs.

A small breakfast selection along with an espresso machine.  I imagine more food comes out later in the day.

A single shower and unisex prayer room.  The back of the lounge boasts a bar, more seating, and a cool water feature.

I loved the giant Turkish 777-300ER model in the front of the lounge.

We had a quick breakfast along with coffee and grabbed a couple of waters before our flight to Denver.

All in all, this is a great lounge to spend some time before a flight.  The best domestic Priority Pass lounge I've visited and a welcome addition to the lounge scene at IAD.
