The Inn at Furnace Creek has entertained visitors to Death Valley National Park since 1927. A mining concern, the Pacific Coast Borax Company, built the hotel to sustain the Death Valley Railroad long before the hottest spot in America became a national monument. The inn now offers access to attractions like Badwater Basin, the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere at 282 feet below sea level, and Zabriskie Point, a ledge that offers an unearthly view of the arid hills.
