"VIP Lounge" - Short Hills Mall

Just got an email from CO on this:

************************************************** ******

YOU'RE INVITED TO TAKE A RELAXING TIME-OUT FROM YOUR HOLIDAY SHOPPING.

WHO: Continental Chase Card members

WHERE: The Mall at Short Hills in New Jersey
(1st floor near Bloomingdale's)

WHEN: November 26–December 24, 2010

WHAT: An exclusive retreat for holiday shoppers featuring...

• Comfortable seating and massage chairs

• Flat panel TVs, newspapers and magazines

We all need a little break during the holidays. As a Continental Chase Card member, you've got the perfect place to go when those bags start getting heavy or your feet begin to ache. It's called The Continental VIP Lounge from Chase, and it's only at The Mall at Short Hills.

Starting this Friday, join us for some well-deserved downtime and relaxing amenities, plus free gift wrapping to ease your holiday burden. Just show your Continental Chase Card at the door to get in.

So this means there isn't an amex lounge here anymore? Or is this an additional 'competing' lounge?

I believe last year the Amex lounge was not there, I have not been to Short Hills in the last month so I can't say wether the Amex lounge is back or not.

Maybe this is Continental's solution for when the P-clubs get too full....

I just stopped by the Lounge. It officially opens 11/26 with hours of 11:00AM - 9:00PM. It is across from Paparazzi. Don't know what store it replaced.

A lounge is okay, but I'd rather have close in parking (not the Valet service). Just use your Chase card to get into the lot.

This time of year, it takes less time for me to drive to this mall than it does to park and get inside.

Has anybody been to the Lounge yet? I got a card in the mail which can be used for entry. It says "Complimentary snacks and beverages" and then "Gift wrapping" which I take to mean it's not complimentary. Any thoughts on the gift wrapping? (you can tell I don't like to do it myself...)

I've been there. It's quite nice and the gift wrapping is free
