Disclosure: I have TSA PreCheck, a Clipper Card, and travel with carry-on bags. If you do not have TSA PreCheck, your security screening will take longer. If you do not have a Clipper Card, you will need to buy a one-way BART ticket prior to riding BART. If you need to check your bags, you will need to drop off your bags before going through security. With that said, here is how to get to the Oakland International Airport Escape Lounge like a pro.

Good morning everyone, happy Friday. I fly out of SFO often and try to swing by the SFO Centurion Lounge as often as I can – even if it is just for a few minutes to grab a bite to eat before heading to my gate. I will show you how to get from San Francisco to the SFO Centurion Lounge like a pro. Since I work in San Francisco, I usually take BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) to SFO. I jump on the yellow line headed to SFO and I can get there in under 40 minutes (make sure you are on the train that says SFO / San Francisco Airport).
Good morning everyone, happy Friday. Last week, my girlfriend and I had a late night flight into Denver International Airport (DEN). Due to a slight delay, we landed after midnight. If you’ve ever flown into DEN, you know the airport is in the middle of nowhere, with no hotels closeby. That was true until recently when the Westin Denver Airport hotel opened. Nightly rates were $300+, so I opted to use 12,000 SPG. Thankfully, the hotel is attached to the main terminal, so I was able to get from the gate to our room in 25 minutes.
According to the DEN Airport website, the Westin Denver International Airport has 519 guest rooms, 35 suites, and was “designed to resemble a bird in flight—its curved roof mimicking the concave shape of Jeppesen Terminal’s white peaked roof.” Underneath the hotel, is the RTD train that connects DEN airport to Denver’s Union Station. The one-way trip takes 40 minutes, costs $9 per person and runs pretty frequently. In this post, I will share how to get to the hotel from the various terminals and show photos of our room. Enjoy!
This property was great and I really had no problems during my stay. The stay cost me 20,000 Hyatt points per night, so 100,000 points total for the stay. Since this property is an all-inclusive, they usually charge more for the room depending on the number of occupants; single occupancy is the cheapest. This makes sense as they are essentially paying for the food and drink of all occupants. I was surprised that the 20,000 points per night was the same for 1 or 2 occupants, but the cash price was not. For only 7.3 million Hyatt points, you could live here for a year, all-inclusive. Well, you would have to find someone to do your laundry as that’s not included, but everything else is!
