PHL Best Admirals Club?

I've got a 2.5 hour layover in PHL later this month, so I've got time to move around. Are any of the Admirals Clubs there significantly better than the others?

From what I understand, the A west and B/C clubs are the big ones, and A west is closed right now. I've only ever been into the B/C club though - no complaints, but certainly not anything special. I'll be there tomorrow if there is anything specific you want to know.

Older info here, but may give you a general idea: https://thepointsguy.com/2015/07/adm...-philadelphia/

I preferred A West - but you have to make a pretty good effort to get to it.

A West is closed. B/C is the only open large club and gets very crowded now. I haven't been since the 11/1 boarding pass requirement kicked in.

A East and F have small clubs. Only use them if you are departing from one of those terminals, and B/C may still be a better option for A East departures if you don't mind a 5 minute walk past the movie posters (from the B side elevators).

It looks like I'll be going in and out of Terminal B, so it sounds like I don't have much to lose by going to the B/C lounge. (Seems like that's where the upgraded Admirals food options are as well.) Thanks everyone!

The best is the B/C lounge. I wouldn’t get my hopes up though, it is just satisfactory in my opinion. The new Flagship lounge should be done in the next decade….or so.
