BE lounge ATL-SJO?

I'm a DL newbie, so please pardon my ignorance! I'm flying with my gf LAX-ATL-SJO in "business" class tonight/tomorrow, and I'm not sure if our business class seats will allow us into the BE lounge in ATL. In any case I have a Plat Amex to get into the regular CRC, but I'm wondering if there is any benefit to using the BE lounge, or if they'll even let us in.
Thanks,
Simon

Thanks. Is the BE lounge notably better than the E concourse CRC?

Not really. They occasionally toss out some snack-type food (finger sandwiches) and such in the BE lounge, but the feeding frenzy that occurs when the food is brought out is disgusting. You really have to count you fingers if you try to grab for anything.

The E CRC is quite pleasant. I believe it used to be Delta's Business Class lounge back when they had three classes of service.

An interesting note: Showers are available in the E CRC, but NOT in the E BusinessElite lounge.

Thanks all. It turned out to be a moot point, as the BE lounge is only open 2pm-10pm.
