Still can't really hear the station calls from the back by the restrooms.
The name change is interesting. Amtrak lounge access rules permit United Club members to access Club Acela branded lounges. They do not have access to Metropolitan Lounges - previously only in Chicago and Los Angeles. With this name change, will UC members now be barred from the lounge in Boston?
