When you think of Death Valley, you might not think of a great four diamond resort in the desert. Thankfully the Furnace Creek Inn Death Valley is just that. This oasis in the middle of the desert offers a great place to put your feet up and escape the sun and heat.
Since 1927 the Furnace Creek Inn Death Valley has been a resting spot for travelers who are looking to enjoy the beauty of Death Valley but still enjoy a luxurious place to stay.
There are 66 rooms in the Furnace Creek Inn. We stayed in a king size room, and it was quite lovely. One thing to note is the building was built in 1927. Even with that being said we found the room to be quite lovely and perfect for our stay.
One of the things that impressed us the most about the Furnace Creek Inn Death Valley was the staff. From the moment we pulled up to the front of the hotel, we were greeted by so many friendly staff members.
Veso from Bulgaria was truly wonderful. He greeted us each time we pulled up and asked about our day. We talked about photography and how much fun he is having exploring the park with his wife. He was a shining example of the great service at the inn.
Our room had a lovely king size bed, fireplace, and full bathroom. I do wish we could have lit a fire in the fireplace and relaxed, but we didn’t have time. The room opened up onto a walkway that led around the property to the pool.
The bathroom had nice shampoo, conditioner, and soap available along with a hair dryer. I really appreciated that the inn offered large containers attached to the wall of products to help reduce the amount of garbage from small shampoo and toiletry bottles.
There are great lounge chairs available so you can look out over the desert. There are also chairs near the amazing pool. This is a great place to watch the sun go down and relax as the stars come out.
The pool at the Furnace Creek Inn Death Valley is absolutely gorgeous. One thing to note is if you are visiting outside of summer check the temp with a toe before you dive in. We had heard that it was going to be warm but wanted to check before we jumped in. Thank goodness we did because it was not warm at all. I am sure in the summer it would feel amazing, but in January it was not happening.
A funny thing did happen on our way to the pool. We were walking along and all of a sudden something jumped over the stairs in front of us. Tammilee freaked out a bit and thought it was a cougar or bobcat. It turned out to be a coyote pup who quickly ran away, but it sure got our hearts racing.
I was very glad to have a flashlight on my cell phone to light the rest of the way to the pool at night.
The hotel staff lit the fireplaces near the pool deck at night while we were there. The seating around the fireplaces is really comfy and perfect for relaxing.
