The Oasis at Death Valley
After enduring a heat-filled day touring the wonders of Death Valley, visitors deserve to return to luxuriously comfortable (and affordable!) accommodations. The Oasis at Death Valley (formerly Furnace Creek Resorts) offers two different types of settings: the Inn and the Ranch, both catering to guests' needs with their well-appointed rooms, suites and cabins. Guests of the resort are privy to an 18-hole golf course, four restaurants, a saloon, retail outlets, a Borax Museum, swimming pools, tennis courts, horse-drawn carriage rides, massage therapy, even a 3,000-foot-long airstrip.
Death Valley Views
Head out from the Oasis at Death Valley for a day exploring one of America's largest national parks. From here you can experience salt flats, ancient geological formations, chiseled canyons, the lowest point in the Americas, Badwater (282 feet below sea level), and majestic mountains rising to 11,049 feet at Telescope Peak.
Visiting Yosemite National Park? Consider booking a stay at the Ahwahnee Hotel. The four-diamond hotel was built in the 1920s with the goal of attracting upper-class clientele. In the last century it has hosted presidents, royalty and a roster of stars.
The Ahwahnee is surrounded by many of Yosemite’s most famous icons. You won’t need to go far to experience the iconic views that travelers come from around the world to see. A casual stroll of the hotel grounds reveals views of Half Dome (pictured), Yosemite Falls and Glacier Point. Learn More
