Royal Peaks Lounge

The Royal Peaks Lounge is the executive club lounge at the Westin Kierland Resort. Located on the 9th floor, it offers some extra space, free wifi and complimentary breakfast and snacks throughout the day.

While many dated reports on Flyertalk talk about the Lounge having strict entrance policies (2 adults complimentary with kids being charged $10 each), the sign in the front states you can bring 2 adults and 3 children per paying guest.

When we first arrived on Saturday around 5PM in the afternoon, we found the lounge completely empty. It was quite spacious, with enough space to comfortably seat 30 people inside, plus another 10 or so on the outdoor patio area.

I immediately ran towards the refrigerator to find me some chilled milk.

Soon, a woman came out of the side room and laid out the food spread of antipasti, cold cuts and cheese.

The next morning, we came back at 7AM for breakfast. We had read about the Pancake Machine and were excited to see what all the fuss was about. Being a 4 year old, I loved pancakes. It was extremely simple to operate. You just pressed the button and within 90 seconds, you'd have 2 pancakes roll out onto your plate.

In the mornings, they also offered deviled eggs, different types of fruits, a basket of pastries (croissants, bagels, toasts, muffins) and cold cuts and cheese. If those items didn't suit us, we could have chosen from three different cereals and other salty snacks.

While not the most amazing breakfast spread we've ever seen (that title belongs to the Park Hyatt in Buenos Aires and the Conrad in Hong Kong), we had more than enough food for breakfast. Plus, knowing it was completely complimentary kept us happy.
