One nice side perk of miles, points and credit cards is access to airline lounges.  Many different credit cards offer lounge access, either through one-time passes, visits or actual club membership.  While most airline lounges (especially in the US) aren’t mindblowingly awesome (as compared to, say, the Emirates First Class Lounge in Dubai), most will offer a quiet(er) place to work / relax, some basic food / drink options, wifi and other amenities. While in Chicago for the Chicago Seminars 2017, I had a few hours to kill from an early morning flight so spent my time at the Delta Sky Club ORD.

Delta Sky Club ORD location, hours and how to access

The Delta Sky Club ORD location is in Terminal 2, Concourse E, between gates E6 and E7.

The Delta Sky Club Chicago hours are from 5:00 a.m. to 7:45 p.m. every day except Saturday, when it’s open from 4:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.  I accessed the Delta Sky Club ORD by way of an American Express Platinum card (since I had flown Delta), but you can also access it via a day pass or through a variety of Delta credit cards such as the Delta Reserve card.  At the time of this post, there were all-time high signup bonuses on 7 different Delta credit cards (as high as 70,000 Skymiles).

If you’re wondering is it worth it to buy a day pass for the Delta Sky Club ORD ($50 cost) I would say definitively no.

Delta Sky Club Chicago ORD seating

The Delta SkyClub ORD is fairly small as far as SkyClubs go – it is all one one floor and has 3 different main seating areas.

There are also a few smaller alcoves with seating that are good if you need a bit more quiet.  I was able to snag one and made a few work calls by myself for most of the morning before someone else joined me around noon.

Delta Sky Club ORD food and drink

The Delta Sky Club ORD food is pretty standard for most Delta Skyclubs – breakfast was oatmeal and grits along with assorted breads / bagels, fruits and yogurt.

Around 11 a.m. they switched over to the lunch service which was soup, salad fixings, cheese, hummus, cookies, etc.

There was only one thing that I saw at the Delta Sky Club ORD Chicago that I had not seen at other Delta SkyClubs – hot dogs for lunch!

Now these were not world class hot dogs, but they were pretty good as far as hot dogs go.  There is a self serve bar at the Chicago Delta Sky Club

Along with canned soft drinks (only Sprite Zero and Ginger Ale for some reason).  There was a self service pop machine for other drinks.

Delta Sky Club Chicago O’Hare amenities

The Delta Sky Club ORD wifi was hit or miss.  Generally I had no problems with the Delta Sky Club Chicago wifi but there were a few times where it got frustratingly slow.  Some of that may have been my own fault as I was over a work wifi so that could have been slowing things down.

The Delta Sky Club Chicago O’Hare does also have restrooms (of course) but no shower services.  It does have a business center with access to printers.
