A Peek Inside the Toronto Maple Leaf Lounge

A Peek Inside the Toronto Maple Leaf Lounge 1

My business class lounge review continues with a peak inside the Toronto Maple Leaf Lounge. This was stop #2 on my 9 business class flights booked on just 90K points and $325, and it was a good one. Let’s look inside.

Location

The Toronto Pearson airport has 3 Maple Leaf Lounges. For this review we peek inside the Toronto Maple Leafs Lounge located in Terminal 1, level 3, Node F – International Flights.

Amenities

Upon first heading inside the Toronto Maple Leafs Lounge I was surprised to see how big it is. It dwarfs the Maple Leaf lounge in Edmonton and Vancouver. It could have something to do with Toronto Pearson serving over 38 million people per year. Never-the-less, there is loads of space to stretch out inside this Toronto Maple Leaf Lounge.

Highlights of this large lounge include a no-cell phone quiet area, showers, newspapers and magazines, and multiple self-serve bars.

Food & Drink

The self-serve bar brings me to the next, and most important, perk inside the Toronto Maple Lounge – the food and drink selection. You’re always going to win me over with Guinness on tap and to build your own Caesar bars. Food was unique and above-average for business class lounges. Highlights include ravioli, salads, and a build your own pho station.

How to Get in

Access inside the Toronto Maple Leafs Lounge is included in your business class and above ticket, even if books on points. If you’re not flying business class, you still have options:

  • Air Canada Maple Leaf Club – You can purchase an annual membership that will give you access to Air Canada and affiliated lounges. ~$ 375+ per year
  • For a small fee ($25/$50) you can purchase access inside the Edmonton Maple Leaf Lounge when you check-in online.
