[Note: the guy checking in next to us started yelling when told his room wasn't ready. Had he tried smiling or being somewhat nice, he might have been offered lounge access. It does work]
And since my daughter had just played six game of Ultimate Frisbee at a tournament, she was happy to just chill in the hot tub for a bit. But first we had espressos in the lounge, and some fruit and cheese.

We left our bags in the lounge, and when we returned to get them, a full bar was set out, along with appetizers from the Michelin-starred on site restaurant, Luce. We had dinner plants, but this is a fantastic amenity. When our kids were little, we made sure to always upgrade our room to club level so they could have a quick snack before dinner and not complain if our food took awhile.

The lounge had copies of the New York Times, and the expansive place meant we could eat and read in relative privacy. A waiter came around offering smoothies and refilling coffee cups and water glasses.
