Death Val­ley re­sort to re­open as Oa­sis

Los Angeles Times - - TRAVEL - — Mary For­gione

When Fur­nace Creek Re­sort re­opens in late fall, it will have a new name and a new look. The re­sort will be called the Oa­sis at Death Val­ley. Its two prop­er­ties, the 66-room Inn at Fur­nace Creek, will be­come the Inn at Death Val­ley, and the 224room Ranch at Fur­nace Creek be­comes the Ranch at Death Val­ley. Why the name changes? “At the Grand Canyon, Yel­low­stone, Glacier, the name of the park is in the name of the lodge,” said Betsy O’Rourke, chief mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer at re­sort op­er­a­tor Xan­terra Parks & Re­sorts. The $50-mil­lion makeover will add new lux­ury ca­sitas to the Inn and a new town hall and square to the Ranch. The ren­o­vated inn, a AAA four-di­a­mond prop­erty, usu­ally closes from Mother’s Day un­til Oc­to­ber but now will be open year round.
