I like CO's 757 F/C for room compared to NW's F/C in any aircraft. And sadly, I like CO much better than NW. You should enjoy both flights because it is First, but on your way back you may be slightly disappointed.
As per the clubs, unless you have membership to either a presidents club, worldclub, or crown room club, you will have to pay. Your first class seat will not get you into the clubs. But, iirc you can purchase a day pass or a trial pass, ask when you get there.

As has been said a F ticket does not get you into the Clubs (President's or World.) You can pay for a day or if you have a Platinum AMEX (not the Platinum SkyMiles for DL) you can get access to the club.
You'll like the CO flight a little better for comfort and you should get some sort of meal.

NW's first is nothing special...i take it b/c of the room compared to coach when I can't fly Midwest. NW's first is usually decidedly cheaper than the others, at least from MSN, and I can get a first-class seat out of MSN, whereas the others all fly RJ's in.
Like XJR, though, I'm switching as much flying as possible to CO, in part b/c of what I've heard from seasoned travellers on here, as well as ratings (some new ones out in Aviation Week). I've got 3 flights coming up on CO, 2 domestic and 1 international. As I've only flown CO Express in the last few years, I'll be very curious to see how their mainline service is. It's causing a gap in my Elite status, but I'll probably have that re-earned by next year. I think Elite is overrated, anyway.
