Last May, I was able to visit this lounge for the first time. I thought the location was a bit secluded since it is located on the second floor although the signs were helpful. Also, I thought the food on the buffet was okay considering that it is a pretty small lounge. The buffet area offered soups, breads, salads, fruits and some desserts. For drinks, they had juices, softdrinks, coffee and tea. There was also free wifi which was pretty fast. The only thing I thought would have been a big plus was a shower room specially if you are arriving from a long flight the way I did (I flew on Asiana from Seoul to Los Angeles). The staff were really friendly and overall, for a short stay this lounge is very good to have a decent snack while checking some emails.
