Totally lame. After paying $4000 for international first class they offer cheese and crackers and you pay for drinks?

After a trip to Asia and several visits to fabulous lounges there, I was so disappointed with this clubroom. It's dated, has no real food, and looks like an employee break room. Definitely did not make me feel appreciated (as a frequent flier) by the airline.

Was challenged as to my eligibility to enter, although I am Star Gold on an international routing then grudgingly let in, but I wasn't missing much. Plenty of staff doing next to nothing, can see no reason why there are 8 people in this lounge when it charges for any decent food and drink, several staff just stand around doing nothing. The worst is the excuse for snacks which comprises a platter of cubed American style (ie rubber) cheese of three different colours under a lid, with a selection of crackers. Wifi not free. Why does United bother? It may as well get rid of all staff bar an entry guard and cleaner, and just let it be a quiet place to sit. The real disgrace is that you can't take bought food from elsewhere into this lounge, presumably because you are meant to buy United airlines paninis.

Not so crowded as the one on the E terminal and more spacious. Food terrible - crackers, cheese, horrible looking "fresh vegetables." None of the beers are gratis - everything has a price.

I used both the International Lounge (outbound to Sydney) and Domestic lounge (inbound from Sydney to Calgary). The two are typical Red Carpet in the United States. There is a very sad feeling to the lounge culture operated by United Airlines. They are filthy, furniture worn, food is plain awful. You need a coupon or two to get 1 glass of alcohol beverage for two. United lounges abroad can be quite good, Hong Kong and Sao Paulo, for example. So the sad culture exists inside the US because people there tolerate it. Maybe the other members of the Star Alliance could help by communicating their displeasure to United. Skytrax should not be giving United lounges a 3-Star rating.

What a disgrace. I am going to have to spend six hours in this lounge to catch a connecting flight to South Africa -the plug points don't work, even bottled water costs money, as does the wireless, and staff is rude and uninformed. I am a regular user of Star Alliance lounges, and while the quality varies from airport to airport, this is by far the most appalling one I have ever seen. An insult to gold members.

What a depressing place. After checking in, we were informed the lounge would still close at scheduled time in spite of our flight to SYD being delayed more than an hour. Several announcements were made to push everyone out by 10:30. Our flight wound up boarding about an hour later. The seats are old and run down. Lighting is bad. Food is cheap snacks served in disposable containers. It reminded me of a college dormitory cafeteria between meals, but the dormitory would have better choices. We wound up eating snack mix and yogurt covered pretzels. We were given two coupons apiece for drinks. Seats are old and beaten up. The bathroom is clearly old and run down. I can't explain it, but there is a sad feeling to the place. I think we would have had a better time just going to and staying at the gate.

An absolute disgrace, we had to pay for a beer and a glass of wine and the "food" on offer was disgusting. Sweaty cubes of cheese and something unidentifiable in large glass tubes which looked like coloured marbles. Considering the extortionate price charged by United for business class seats, they need to do much better than this. The lounge at San Francisco was only marginally better in that we were given 2 vouchers each for alcohol.

This is one of the saddest lounges I've used. I'm traveling on Air Canada and originally was turned away because they wouldn't recognize my Executive First ticket and told me I needed Star Alliance Gold membership. Then at the gate the Air Canada gate personnel overheard me saying I needed to find some wi-fi and he suggested I try the lounge. I told him I had been turned away, he helpfully called down, got into a discussion about the business class eligibility, and sent me down. No cocktails - there's a bar, but it's unstaffed and the only drinks are a few diet cokes and some bloody mary mix. A few apples and bags of chips complete the offering. Most unhelpfully, since I'm not a Red Carpet Club member, I had to buy my own wifi access on t-mobile. This contradicts the info on the little placard that says t-mobile wifi is available on a complimentary basis to international customers. Well, last time I checked, Toronto was in Canada, not the US. The bathroom is dingy grey, the tiles are dirty, and I swear there's graffiti and scratching on the door to one of the stalls. The lounge seating area is nice enough, but they need to make more of an effort to make this more than just a glorified waiting area. I certainly wouldn't pay $400 a year to use these facilities.

Lounge is vast and well appointed, but you realize quickly that it's full of people and seating is at a premium. The shower facility is fine with a nice amenities/toiletries bag given out. Food consists of snacks like saltines, cheese, bananas, a few sushi rolls, and nuts. Not much more and the beverage selection is standard cafeteria. You would do better to use the ANA Business lounge that is located very close to United RCC, if you're a Star Alliance Gold Member. There ANA has a nice selection of refreshments, including a Sake Bar, soups, sandwiches, and a kitchen where you can walk up and order various noodles. There is free WiFi.

One of the worst Red Carpet Club I ever visit. Rude welcome personnel. I used this Club because the First Class Lounge is too far to the Air Canada gate. The personnel don't know that Star Alliance Business Class travellers can use Red Carpet Club and ask for Red Carpet Membership. It's a very big difference between the United Lounge in Hong Kong and the Business Lounge in Chicago ORD. And don't bother about the food and beverage - it's almost nothing.

Very courteous welcome. Breakfast choice is OK but choice of drinks is limited. No Internet, only from the Airport Internet provider but the people who had paid an overprice fee said it doesn't work. Access to the Club by 2 very old elevators is very slow, so don't wait too close to your departure because there is another long line security check at the gate.
