At June I will be flying Brussels - Chicago - Orlando. I will be flying with American Airlines the whole length. On their website they are advertising for a one-day pass for their lounge "admirals club" . Is this useful to do? Is it worth the money? What can I do at their lounge..
I have 3 hours en 10 minutes to relax

Please keep in mind that customs at ORD can be slow at times, which would reduce the amount of time you are able to spend in the lounge for your $50.
But, if you would otherwise purchase food and drink for an airport shop, the added cost for peace and quiet, free wifi, and a shower might be worth it!
Yeah, I know. My point exactly. Even after spending thousands of dollars with an airline, I would hate to have to pay for this little luxury during my layovers. I love the Crown Club and NW lounges....just wish they had a better selection of food.

Does Orlando have an Admiral's Club? If it does, you'd be able to stop in.
I don't think the Admiral's Club is worth $50. I liked the showers and free non-alcholic drinks, but paying $8 for a panini, $2 for a massage, and it was relaxing, but being out $50 basically for a seat wasn't a great deal..

I don't think it's worth it. Back before my work bought me the year pass, I did these from time to time, and decided it wasn't worth it unless I had more than one layover in a hub (i.e. I once flew MCI-DFW-LAX-HKG and got to use the club in both DFW and LAX). On a 3h10 layover, where in fact customs can be slow at ORD for non-citizens and then you have to recheck bags, transfer terminals, etc. I wouldn't spend the money. But that's me...
