DEATH VALLEY NATIONAL PARK, February 21, 2014 – The Furnace Creek Resort in California’s Death Valley National Park shows its appreciation for its over-60 guests by offering a progressive discount on the room rates.

For a one-night stay any day of the week, seniors receive a 10 percent discount off the room rate at both the historic AAA Four Diamond Inn at Furnace Creek and Ranch at Furnace Creek. For two-night stays, the discount increases to 20 percent for the room for both nights, and three or more nights will result in a 30 percent discount off the room. Cabin units at the Ranch at Furnace Creek are not included. Some other restrictions and blackout dates apply, and this offer cannot be combined with other offers.

Located in an oasis in the park where water runoff from the Funeral Mountains gathers, the resort makes a great base for exploring the park’s fascinating geology and history. For those looking for a relaxing and less strenuous visit, the resort offers spring-fed swimming pools, lush green gardens and a choice of the Inn’s elegance or the Ranch’s family-friendly atmosphere.

“Our over-60 guests are often resort repeaters who tend to be active by day – on biking, hiking, swimming and golfing – and reflective by night, toasting our spectacular sunsets and starry skies with a cocktail on the Inn at Furnace Creek patio,” said Denise Perkins, director of sales & marketing for Furnace Creek Resort. “With 3.3 million acres, there’s a lot of park to explore, and with this progressive discount, the longer our over-60 guests stay, the more they can see as well as save.”

Travelers can book the special discount online or by calling 1-800-236-7916 or 1-303-297-2757 and using the promotion code SENIOR10 for a one-night stay, SENIOR20 for two nights and SENIOR30 for three or more nights.
