The Lounge at SJC is one of the Priority Pass network lounges that you can receive complimentary access to with an American Express Platinum card.
Located between terminals A and B in the San Jose Airport, it’s a convenient walk to most nearby flights.
Directly across from the lounge elevator is the gate where the long haul ANA and Hawaiian flights depart, so if you’re in a long haul Business Class product, you may be entitled complimentary use to this lounge.
As you step off of the elevator, you’re greeted by an attendant behind the check-in desk who will ask to swipe your Priority Pass card.
The lounge is very spacious, and there are plenty of seats available. While I’m sure this lounge gets crowded during peak international departure times, I can’t imagine it becomes so filled where you won’t be able to find a seat.
There’s a bar, coffee station and snack area, though be warned that the snacks are all pre-packaged and you’ll find better quality items in an AAdmiral’s Club or SkyClub (of which there are none in this airport).
Overall, it’s a comfortable lounge, and good for a check-up on emails or a quick drink. It’s worth noting that this is the only lounge in San Jose airport, so this is your only option for a pre-departure respite.
