Are there showers in the lounges, or merely toilet facilities?

Does the discount apply to members of frequent flyer programs that have US-based lounge access (i.e. non-US based OneWorld sapphire and emerald, or non-US based Star Alliance gold), or only to paid supplementary lounge memberships such as Admirals Club and United Club?

No showers and toilets are located across the hall. There are no discounts for frequent flyer programs. The roi seems minimal here:

Free wifi- who doesn't have a wifi card in their bag?
Food- standard lounge fare
Drinks- $20 buys lots of soft drinks or a couple of beers.

I think the ticket to sucess for them is an annual fee of say $150-250 and still offering day passes. Even being BWI based I'd never pay $20/visit.
